The Comrex Gagl cloud service for remote contribution is now available for purchase.
The service allows one to five users to send and receive audio from computers and smartphones. Each user receives their own mix-minus to hear other connected guests, and the Gagl audio is delivered to a Comrex hardware codec, usually in a studio. Participants can hear other participants and the codec “sends” audio back to them.
Contributors need a device and a headset. They connect and send audio by clicking a link using a web browser.
Subscriptions are $35 per month or $350 per year with a free 14-day trial.
“Gagl could be used as the hub for a news program or for a morning radio show to support multiple simultaneous contributor connections,” the company says. “Because it offers low latency, it’s appropriate for call-in talk radio. Gagl could also be used to allow a single contributor to connect back to the studio from a computer or smartphone.”
