Why would a broadcaster need IQOYA *CLOUD SaaS?

Digigram IQOYA *CLOUD SaaS makes Audio over IP codecs interoperable. It gives broadcasters access to a robust broadcast SIP infrastructure while facilitating centralized codec management anywhere from any authorized device. This solution enables valuable interoperability, worldwide discovery and access security with a broad array of IP audio codecs from different manufacturers. But why, precisely, a broadcaster would need IQOYA *CLOUD?

To control and monitor what’s going on, at all times, from anywhere

This first-of-its-kind cloud-enabled tool allows users to take action in the event of network faults and failovers to ensure the availability and continuity of high-quality outside broadcasts. Providing real-time monitoring and control of all IP codecs on a network, IQOYA *CLOUD SaaS allows operators to accept and initiate calls, monitor current codec status and configure codecs in one click, on the fly, from any authorized browser.

To transform various ACIP-compliant codecs into a managed codec fleet

Offered on a subscription basis and accessible from any studio or nomadic device, Digigram’s IQOYA *CLOUD SaaS makes it easy and affordable to operate audio codecs and bring content into the control room. Even third-party codecs or SIP phones can be incorporated into a fleet if they are ACIP-compliant. With the flexibility to access such codecs, a broadcaster can very quickly and cost-effectively extend its codec fleet. In this configuration, using Digigram’s IP codecs provide additional functions to broadcasters such as phone books synchronisation, centralised setup and update among others. Because the application is operated by a large cloud provider and based on proven Oracle® technology, users enjoy exceptional redundancy and a high degree of security.

To focus only on broadcasting, rather than on handling proprietary technologies

Eliminating the need for IT engineers on either side of the connection, this turnkey application is accessible from anywhere via the web browser of any connected device (mobile, tablet or PC). Built on Digigram’s highly secure SIP broadcast infrastructure, which includes the stream relay, session border controller (SBC), and presence server, IQOYA *CLOUD provides simple real-time control of all registered ACIP codecs across the network. Because all codec brands appear the same way within the browser interface, management is as straightforward as clicking a mouse.

To capitalize on the flexibility of SaaS

The SaaS model allows users pay only a monthly recurring fee rather than invest in significant IT development or capital expenditures. It also supports scaling up or down to accommodate special events. Additional IP codecs from new sites and correspondents can securely be added to the fleet in order to enhance coverage.

Only Digigram’s IQOYA *CLOUD leverages SaaS to make interoperability affordable for all broadcasters. The application affords users more democratic access to outside broadcasting, not only in terms of money but also in technical capabilities, freeing them to take full advantage of any SIP-compatible audio codec, anywhere.
