At the 2015 NAB Show, Digigram will showcase the addition of Ravenna/AES67 connectivity to the company’s Iqoya range of audio over IP codecs, which now allow users to get audio programs directly from an in-studio Ravenna network, and subsequently encode and stream them over IP to transmitter sites via a WAN in compliance with EBU ACIP. Users likewise can decode EBU ACIP streams from a WAN to their in-studio Ravenna network. With these capabilities, radio stations can easily migrate towards the use of IP audio within their studios.
The company, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will also highlight the LX-IP Ravenna PCIe soundcard (shown), which is now shipping. The first Ravenna-enabled product developed by Digigram, the sound card features low latency — down to one audio sample per IP packet — and up to 256 Ravenna I/O channels from multiple Ravenna streams.
This solution, says Digigram, makes it easy for users to record and play as many as 128 audio over IP Ravenna channels simultaneously in and out of a desktop computer. It features low round-trip latency down to 3 ms, interoperability with all AES67 requirements, an embedded 128 x 128 switching matrix, Grandmaster PTP clock abilities, and high redundancy assured by two Gigabit Ethernet connections.
The company will also unveil the new MADI Option on LX-IP Ravenna PCIe sound card; the new LX-MADI PCIe soundcard; and the Iqoya *Cloud application for the management and operation of a fleet of IP audio codecs.
