IQOYA X DUAL / LINK-DUAL – Stereo IP audio codec
IQOYA X/LINK-DUAL is a 1U rack dual IP audio codec designed for live remote broadcasting and program distribution over IP. It is a perfect fit for delivering two stereo source (or four mono sources) over IP networks for STL & SSL links, DVB audio, WEB radio and also for full-duplex live remote broadcasts and intercom systems. It can be used in legacy analog and AES/EBU audio infrastructures, as well as in full-IP audio infrastructures (AES67, Ravenna, Livewire), making it a perfect investment for the migration to IP audio. Like all the IQOYA products, X/LINK-DUAL is based on Fluid IP, the Digigram technology for reliable and resilient audio transmission over all types of IP networks including inexpensive unmanaged IP networks. Based on a low consumption, fanless and powerful hardware platform, IQOYA X/LINK-DUAL is designed for 24/7/365 use.
- Space efficient: two stereo codecs (or four mono) in a 1U rack, with simultaneous delivery to transmitter sites, WEB radio CDNs, DVB multiplexers, and other studios in multiple encoding and transport formats.
- Adapted to legacy audio infrastructures and full-IP audio infrastructures.
- EBU/ACIP compliance for interoperability with third-party codecs and any SIP infrastructure.
- Multiple levels of redundancy for audio service continuity and failsafe operation: 2 power supply units, 4 network ports with stream redundancy, audio failovers, audio hardware by-pass, and 1+1 hot device redundancy.
- Control and configuration via SNMP and Web services for easy integration with codec and network management/monitoring systems
