A new subscription service that allows radio stations to provide contributors with high-quality audio connectivity, without the need for them to have anything other than an internet-connected computer and microphone or headset, has been launched by VTX Technology. The VTX-Tech Call-Me service gives users easier access to IP audio over the public internet, rather than having to send a radio car or bring contributors into a studio.
Subscribing stations are provided with their own branded Call-Me page, which automatically links to their studio codec, providing up to 15kHz live two-way audio with the minimum of fuss and setting up. The Contributor simply clicks on the link and enters the password to connect.
The station emails the contributor with a link to its Call-Me page, on VTX Technology’s server. The contributor just pushes the Call-Me button and using either the built-in microphone on the computer and speakers – or better a headset – they are live on air via the studio’s IP codec.
