Digigram To Showcase Its Cloud Products At NAB 2017

Digigram will highlight its professional analog, digital, and IP sound cards, along with audio-over-IP codecs dedicated to outside broadcasting and program distribution at NAB 2017. The company will also showcase its new cloud-based applications that simplify remote contribution, as well as codec management with secure SIP infrastructure for outside broadcasting applications.

Digigram's new cloud technologies meet increasing market demand for simplified access and serve as high-level solutions that address complete use cases and workflows, thereby eliminating the need for specialized hardware systems or expensive capital expenditure.

The first of these solutions is IQOYA *Cloud, a codec-management system now available in a SaaS (software as a service) model that makes it affordable for small and medium-size broadcasters, who pay only a monthly recurring fee instead of investing in significant capital expenditures. Accessible from anywhere via the web browser of any connected device, the application dramatically simplifies deployment and day-to-day operation of a codec fleet of any size.

Built on Digigram’s highly secure SIP broadcast infrastructure, which includes the stream relay, session border controller (SBC), and presence server, this application provides efficient real-time control of all registered ACIP codecs across the network. With this centralized, cloud-enabled tool, control room operators can accept and initiate calls, monitor current codec status, configure codecs on the fly, and take action in the event of network faults and failovers to ensure the availability and continuity of high-quality broadcasts.

The company will also show its blu cloud-based service that facilitates real-time end-to-end management of content contribution from journalists, expert voice talent, and remote presenters, as well as live user-generated content from the qualified broadcast or web radio audience. Designed for the professional broadcast environment, the blu platform makes it simple and easy for studios to establish several simultaneous, high-quality bidirectional communications through the blu user portal with any remote contributor who has a web browser, traditional SIP codec, or even telephone as a backup.

This broadcast-focused service unites a cloud-based SaaS application with a professional audio interface in the studio to improve the user experience dramatically. With this unique "no-fuss, no-hassle" pay-as-you-go model for managing and processing contributed content from an array of sources, broadcasters can dedicate more time and resources to creating the compelling, timely, and relevant programming that drives their success.
