Unlike conventional end-to-end Audio over IP contribution using proprietary protocols, a SIP infrastructure works as a transparent codec umbrella. It provides:
- Strong security of all audio streams to protect the broadcaster’s IT infrastructure
- Simple call management through mutual discovery of all authorized codecs — no more IP address/ports, only predefined contacts lists and associated profiles
- Full interoperability between SIP/ACIP-compliant codecs
Why is interoperability important?Why is interoperability important?
Interoperability allows broadcasters to diversify their codec fleet and to invite correspondents using their own IP codec gear, including simple SIP phones or even gateways from other technologies such as WebRTC.
