Ferncast's aixtream software can now support Dante as an input and output protocol
Studio operators equipped with Dante have asked to expand software aixtream™ to enable direct transmission over SIP with a Dante input. With this update, aixtream can now replace multiple other devices as an all-in-one solution. Therefore, no additional hardware is needed anymore for conversion from Dante to SIP. Running on fernStudio light and fernStation as well as on server installations, aixtream can now support Dante as an input and ouput protocol.
aixtream in a Dante studio environment has quite a number of interesting benefits for the operators:
- Highly available for 24/7 operation, including automatic fall back to redundant systems comprehensive monitoring of operations, including alarms and fast user-driven adaptation
- Possibility to expand from AES/EBU and MADI to AES67
- Dante input supports every possible output, not just SIP, including OTT streaming, DVB transcoding per MPEG TS and more
- Updates offered by Ferncast’s online customer service center steadily increase the number of features offered by aixtream like network statistics and analysis, multi-channel encoding, AC-3 software certified by Akamai and nacamar and more
