Since 1985, Digigram has innovated in the development of sound processing software and hardware. From the famous PCX3 to its solutions for SIP infrastructures, discover 35 years of history at the heart of this company on the border between IT and audio.
SERV/LINK: one Rack Unit. No compromise.
In 2009, Digigram invented the first stereo audio codec dedicated to transport over IP networks which natively integrated the redundant streaming function on two separate networks.
Always at the forefront of research, Digigram sensed the need to go further in the design of its codecs. In order to develop a tool that would bring an indisputable advantage to the broadcaster, Digigram put the “user” above everything else.
While radios already offered several simultaneous audio programs, Digigram chose to propose a codec with high channel density in only 1U. This codec had to manage talk-back channels and commentaries via IP. It had to support remote broadcasting of programs between remote studios and generate multiple WEB radio streams for CDNs. This led to the creation of IQOYA SERV/LINK, an extremely reliable and compact codec.
This new generation codec was the first IP audio codec in the market to offer as many channels in 1U. IQOYA SERV/LINK accommodates Digigram’s professional audio cards and relies on the Fluid IP™ streaming engine developed by the brand. It is available in several versions with different format compatibility: MADI / AES67 / AES / EBU / DANTE / Analog.
The functional scope of the IQOYA SERV/LINK was then extended to support MPEG-TS streaming, followed by applications using DVB Audio transport and then for simultaneous live remote broadcasting applications.
In the “remote broadcasting” configuration, it is the only IP audio codec in the market capable of managing up to 64 mono or stereo full-duplex IP streams, regardless of the audio encoding format and the audio connectivity.
In the “program distribution” configuration, it is the only IP audio codec in the market which supports up to 128 mono, multiple-format, input and output channels with the possibility to simultaneously encode, decode and transcode IP audio streams.
For more than 10 years, Digigram’s IP codecs have been used for the distribution of radio programs. More than 10,000 IQOYA are currently in operation 24/7 all over the planet.
They are known for their reliability and versatility, as well as for the resilience of the audio connections they enable. Digigram has put all its know-how and passion to perfect its codecs IQOYA X/LINK and IQOYA SERV/LINK ranges.
