Triton Digital has released the latest Netherlands Podcast Report. The report provides insight into the top 12 networks and top 100 podcasts in the Netherlands from Aug. 2–29, as measured by Triton’s Podcast Metrics measurement service. Findings for this reporting period
The new firmware provides support for NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 [Networked Media Open Specifications] and for up to eight channels of digital phase-locked multichannel audio, including six-channel (5.1 or 6.0) or eight-channel (7.1 or 8.0) surround sound streams in Gateway, or four-channel phase-locked streams in Gateway and Gateway 4.
In addition, it offers a dynamic range compressor and EQ on all inputs; SmartStream PLUS redundant streaming support for multi-unicast streams; and support for Euro ISDN connections.
“Support for NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 in the Gateway platform is incredibly important and provides discovery, registration, and control for ST 2110 AoIP streaming,” said the company in a release. “This ensures that components of a networked media system can find each other and delivers connection management and audio channel mapping to device I/O channels. Combined with support for 16 AES67/ST 2110-30 AoIP streams, NMOS brings a new level of interoperability and control with networked equipment throughout the broadcast plant.”
Phase-locked AoIP streaming allows broadcasters to stream live events like concerts and major sports in stereo and surround sound simultaneously, or distribute live phase-locked audio between studios or network affiliates. Tieline explains that a 16-channel Gateway codec supports sending 2×6+2 channels of phase-locked streams, or 2×8 channels of phase-locked streams, or 4×4 channels of phase-locked streams.
The new release is a free upgrade for existing customers. Release notes for all new features can be viewed, and firmware downloaded, from the support page for each codec available via www.tieline.com/support.
