    IQOYA X/LINK ST - Overview

    The 2 channel Audio Codec for Rock-solid Audio Transmission Over IP
    Digigram QOYA X/LINK-ST is a 1U rack IP audio codec designed for the delivery of a stereo source (or two mono sources) over IP networks for STL and SSL links, but also DVB audio and WEB radio. It can be used in legacy analog or AES/EBU audio infrastructures, as well as in full-IP audio infrastructures (AES67, Ravenna, Livewire), making it a good investment for the migration to IP audio. Like all the IQOYA products, X/LINK-ST is based on the Fluid IP technology which offers the redundant dual streaming feature, allowing for reliable IP streaming over inexpensive IP links. Based on a low consumption and fanless powerful hardware platform, IQOYA X/LINK-ST is designed for 24/7/365 use.

    Key points
    Adapted to your current legacy audio infrastructure, and to your future full-IP audio infrastructure
    Simultaneous delivery of your audio program to transmitter sites, WEB radio CDNs, DVB multiplexers, and other studios, in multiple audio formats
    Designed for audio service continuity and failsafe operation
    Easy integration into existing SNMP based supervisors (SET, GET, Traps)
    Ongoing product support with flexible options
