Ferncast has announced the release of version 3.5 of aixtream. The new release offers a broad range of new features focusing on three areas: file playlist processing, deployment via docker containers and support of more APIs, including MusicMaster.
The company says that while it initially developed aixtream for 24/7 live applications, file processing in the audio world is becoming increasingly important as consumers enjoy more on-demand content. The new block of elements serves playlist handling, adding user-defined crossfades, cue in/outs, marker flags and integrated loudness measurements or changes. The company adds that aixtream can now transcode entire file libraries and schedule audio playouts.
With full support for Docker container, the upgrade makes aixtream even easier to integrate into a greater number of workflows as it becomes easier to transplant aixtream into other environments.
Other features added or improved in version 3.5 include the following:
- Support for SIREN encoder algorithm
- Delayed triggering of Smart Control Applet actions
- Binary data output via SRT
- Improved bandwidth detection for HLS
Bernd Geiser, senior audio engineer at Ferncast, says, “The development team is really happy with the new release, which greatly expands the field of applications. And with container deployment support, aixtream is now ready for flexible use in data centers, facilitating services on all scales, from small or short-term on-demand jobs to large multi-station and multi-format deployments requiring failover strategies.”
