New product

At a glance

Digigram’s IQOYA *VIP is unique in simultaneously providing encoding, decoding, and transcoding capacity (for both Windows and Linux applications) and delivering multiple audio content to transmitter sites, web radio CDNs, multiplexers, and other studios in multiple audio formats via multiple protocols. The software service offers the same robustness as hardware-based solutions but is infinitely more cost-effective, scalable, and flexible.

Using IQOYA *VIP to access and leverage Digigram’s renowned AoIP streaming technology as a software service, ecosystem partners can more quickly create their own live streaming, processing, and encoding systems. By integrating seamlessly with third-party applications and simplifying integration of IP streams, IQOYA *VIP brings added value to automation system providers and radio stations.
