Radio Rios, a radio station based in Manaus, the capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, spent a few days in Parintins covering the popular Parintins Folklore Festival (Festival de Parintins), also known as Boi Bumba.
Radio Rios presenter Mateus Arruda said, “The ability of the CallMe codec to handle the connectivity challenges in the rain forest was truly impressive. It ensured that our artists and their performances were transmitted with clarity and fidelity, capturing the energy and magic of the festival.”
He added that Vortex’s Brazilian distributor AudioTX provided training and help support, “Their valuable guidance allowed us to make the most of CallMe and overcome any obstacles we encountered along the way.”
A release adds that the CallMe diRECt service “lets a host connect to up to five remote contributors, all streaming live using Opus audio encoding with end-to-end encrypted connections.” It also provides a recording function for storing programs and excerpts during a program or for a backup.
Vortex Communications describes CallMe-diRECt as “a cloud subscription service to link multiple remote contributors for live broadcast as well as for podcasting, and costs less than price of a cup of coffee to use for a whole week.”
