Comrex to Introduce Two New Gagl Features

Hotline improves quality of a standard cell call for on-air use

At the NAB Show Comrex will debut a major feature update for its Gagl remote contribution service called Hotline, as well as a new tier called Gagl Solo.

Gagl enables users to send and receive audio through common web browsers to Comrex hardware IP audio codecs. It supports up to five remote participants in one session.

“Hotline dramatically improves the quality of a standard cell phone call for on-air use,” Comrex said in its announcement.

“Gagl + Hotline provides a 10-digit telephone number with each Gagl + Hotline subscription. A guest or reporter can call the number using an AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon cell phone. The caller’s audio will be presented within the Gagl interface in HD Voice quality for clean, clear full fidelity for use on-air.”

The Gagl service doesn’t require specialized hardware or software on the remote end. With a computer or smartphone plus a headset, Comrex says, high-quality audio can be transmitted bidirectionally with minimal latency, to get anyone on the air.

Also new is Gagl Solo, which supports single guest connections and is suitable for users who don’t need to manage multiple participants, like a reporter in the field.

“Acquiring high-quality audio from remote locations is essential for creating compelling radio. Providing flexibility for guests who can’t come into the studio was a driving force behind Gagl’s creation. Gagl + Hotline creates more options for guest connectivity and makes it even more valuable for radio programming.”
