Ferncast Launches New Class of Audio Codec Servers

48 products with six form factors are now available

Ferncast has launched a new class of Audio Codec Servers (ACS) based on its audio software solution aixtream.

The class combines the 24/7 aixstream Compact software with traditional hardware boxes, according to a press release by Ferncast. “This creates a solution which is far more powerful and versatile than conventional audio codecs, multiplexers, studio transmitter link equipment and similar audio processing and transmission devices.”

Detlef Wiese, CEO of Ferncast, said, “Now we can serve the market with hardware devices for different live applications. We call the software running on those platforms aixtream Compact while the modular software aixtream will stay for those who want to configure their own systems.”

48 ACS products with six form factors are now available — slim, slim redundant, redundant, silent, mini and slim silent. Each product is designed for up to eight fields of application, including OTT online streaming, SIP communication, Studio Transmitter Links, Audio on Demand and DVB multiplexing. Plus, DAB conversion, loudness and transcoding.

“Users can combine these on the same system if desired,” said Ferncast. “They can also choose the number of programs they want to be supported such as two, five, 10, 20, 50 or even 100.”
