Lawo’s R?LAY Virtual Radio Mixer software has been upgraded with the ability to use SIP streams as on-the-air audio sources, as well as several other enhancements and updates.
R?LAY is radio software that enables broadcasters to build virtual broadcast studios using todays inexpensive and powerful desktop and laptop PCs. The R?LAY line includes VRX8 8-fader and VRX4 4-fader Virtual Radio Mixer software, VPB Virtual Patch Bay software, and VSC Virtual Sound Card software. All are AES67 compliant for use with standard AoIP networks.
The AES67 networking standard specifies SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) as its connection management for unicast streams, and R?LAY v126.96.36.199 gives users the ability to use SIP streams as direct audio sources. Other additions to this software version include upgraded ASIO audio client handling, enhanced program logging features, and improved integration of the open-source Ember+ protocol for control of studio peripherals.
R?LAY clients have been asking for SIP capability, and now they have it, says Lawo Radio marketing specialist Clark Novak.
All thats needed is to enter the SIP address of your remote codec or VoIP stream into the R?LAY source setup, then load it onto a fader. What could be easier?
R?LAY software is multi-touch capable for easy, intuitive use on touchscreen PCs and laptops. In addition to AES67 streams, R?LAY can mix all types of native PC audio using included ASIO, WDM, WASAPI and MME drivers. VRX Virtual Radio Mixers include advanced features like Lawo AutoMix hands-free program mixing, Autogain one-touch mic calibration, multiple programmable Snapshots, on-screen GPIO hotkeys, and even a suite of VST-based audio processing tools.
R?LAY VRX Virtual Radio Mixer software is suitable for use in-studio, where its AES67 compliance allows operators to mix both local and networked audio streams to produce programmes for immediate broadcast or later playback. It’s also works well for remote broadcasts: installed on a laptop and paired with a Lawo OnAir 4 audio interface.
