Comrex said its STAC VIP VoIP Call Management Systems has passed qualification by Skype to allow it to process Skype calls alongside other calls.
“Certification means the radio talk show system meets the guidelines to becalled ‘Plugged into Skype’ and can carry the Skype logo,” the company stated.
Technical Director Tom Hartnett said in the announcement that Skype support was an important factor in development of the product. “Skype, by its nature, carries very high fidelity audio when being used between Skype clients. Skype support means stations that use STAC-VIP for their call-ins can takewideband calls from anyone who has Skype installed on their PC or smartphone.”
Also, Comrex said, STAC VIP allows Skype calls to be conferenced with other “normal” callers as well as those using the Comrex “VIP QC” app forsmartphones.
“STAC VIP now contains a wide variety of tools to rid radio programs of thin, fatiguing telephone soundwhile seamlessly supporting legacy phone systems.”
