Digigram will supply its fellow French company, broadcaster RMC, with codecs for its broadcast team covering the upcoming Olympic Games in Japan.
Under the banner of One IP, Digigram packages pieces of equipment along with software for a complete remote broadcast package, according to the company.
For this particular case, 28 Digigram Iqoya Serv/Link codecs will be installed at Paris and Tokyo broadcast centers for RMC. In addition Iqoya Talk portable broadcast commentator codecs will be deployed along with Iqoya Guest smartphone codecs for onsite event production and contribution.
All of these elements work within Digigram’s Iqoya Connect middleware environment to connect and route signals.
“The easy network configuration via Iqoya Connect is one of the solution’s main assets,” said Digigram’s Edouard Winckel, referring to features such as codec auto-detect and configuration. “This added value will help RMC teams in saving time while setting up their system.”
RMC and Digigram have had a lengthy supplier relationship. RMC leader of External Media Production Dimitri Grossi said, “This is a new scheme for us, and as a longtime solutions provider for RMC, we trust Digigram for its reliable solutions. I am confident the One IP solution will support a seamless processing and editing of live and recorded audio feeds, ready for delivery to the RMC headquarters in Paris.”
