Easing the IP migration16 September 2017
The audio infrastructure company has just announced the release of Audioway Bridge, the first in its Audioway range of IP studio solutions. Serving as a gateway between legacy and IP audio equipment in the studio, or in multiple studios connected by a managed network, Audioway Bridge allows users to input MADI, AES67, Ravenna, Dante/AES67, Livewire+, or AES/EBU and route audio to output in any one of these formats.
By facilitating use of familiar legacy audio equipment alongside newer IP-based systems in both on-air broadcasting and production, Audioway Bridge reduces the cost and complexity of migrating to IP, according
Pascal Malgouyard, head of marketing at Digigram, said: “Audioway Bridge offers the smart studio interfaces that allow for a seamless IP migration. This first product in the Audioway range demonstrates our depth of experience in designing mission-critical equipment for audio-over-IP applications.”
As a complete single-box system, Audioway Bridge can replace more complicated gateways that can be too specialised to facilitate broadcasters’ migration schemes, said the company. Occupying 1RU, the all-in-one gateway not only bridges audio-over-IP (AoIP) streams and legacy signals, but also ensures clock synchronisation between the two systems.
The Audioway Bridge will be available in the fourth quarter.
