Digigram's New Codec Fleet Manager Speeds and Simplifies Management of AoIP Contribution Codecs
Hosted Locally or Run as SaaS in the Cloud, Application Enables Convenient Management of All AoIP Contribution Codecs via Any Web-Connected Platform
MONTBONNOT, France -- April 22, 2014 -- Digigram today announced the release of the company's new Codec Fleet Manager. The Web-based application, which can be hosted privately on any virtual machine or operated as SaaS in the cloud, enables structured management of all deployed audio-over-IP (AoIP) contribution codecs. Accessible from anywhere through the Web browser of Internet-connected devices such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones, the application automatically synchronizes phone books, connection profiles, and "favorite" groups of codecs to dramatically simplify deployment and day-to-day operation of the full codec fleet.
"Our new Codec Fleet Manager offers a significant improvement over the labor-intensive and time-consuming technical processes once required to maintain a fleet of AoIP contribution codecs," said Pascal Malgouyard, head of product marketing at Digigram. "This secure application keeps each codec up to date and enables access from any location, whether by the studio administrator or a remote technician. By encapsulating the complexity of intricate AoIP protocols and cryptic specialized IP audio parameters, this application makes codec operations as straightforward as placing a phone call."
Digigram's Codec Fleet Manager supports phone book creation and management much like the "contacts" interface on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. While this element of the Codec Fleet Manager describes all the characteristics of the contacts included in a fleet of codecs, the application also provides control over connection profile details, favorites, and associated filters.
The new application allows authorized users to preconfigure and edit contact settings for the entire codec fleet and then apply those settings across the whole fleet at once. Read/write access is managed by the administrator. As a consequence, at the codec level, the user interface mimics simple mobile phone operation, assuring ease of use regardless of the complexity of underlying IP protocols, profiles, N/ACIP signaling modes, and quality of the supporting connection.
The release of the Codec Fleet Manager is the first step in Digigram's larger rollout of cloud-based AoIP solutions.
