The full release of Codec Fleet Manager has been unveiled at IBC. The web-based application, which can be hosted privately on any virtual machine or operated as SaaS in the cloud, enables structured management of all deployed audio-over-IP contribution codecs.
Accessible from anywhere through the web browser of internet-connected devices, the application automatically synchronises phone books, connection profiles, and ‘favourite’ groups of codecs to simplify deployment and day-to-day operation of the full codec fleet.
The release of the Codec Fleet Manager is the first step in Digigram’s larger rollout of cloud-based AoIP solutions. Another is the addition of Ravenna/AES67 connectivity to the IQOYA range of AoIP codecs.
Digigram said this would allow users to get audio programmes directly from an in-studio Ravenna network and subsequently encode and stream them over IP to transmitter sites via a WAN, in compliance with EBU ACIP.
Users can also decode EBU ACIP streams from a WAN to their in-studio Ravenna network. The company said these capabilities allow radio stations to easily migrate towards the use of IP audio within their studios.
