RƎLAY AoIP Stream Monitor

The AES67 network tool you’ve dreamed of.

Broadcasters have embraced AoIP networking. But there’s never been an easy way to track the health of your facility’s most important streams. Shouldn’t there be a software tool for that?

Now there is. Lawo AoIP Stream Monitor keeps you informed of the state of your critical program streams with real-time confidence metering, LUFS meters, silence sense, audio level alerts and more. Perfect for Master Control displays, stream diagnostics, audio level checks, and much more.

AoIP Stream Monitor displays realtime informatics for up to 16 AES67-compatible audio streams. Average and peak bargraph meters for each channel are onscreen constantly, accompanied by a level readout in Loudness Units, and visual alarms for under-level, over-level and error states.

Want more details? Multiple info tabs let you deep-dive. Stream health, performance history, detailed SDP information. Even confirm content by listening to streams right on your PC.

AoIP Stream Monitor: the IP-Audio information tool you’ve been waiting for.

Knowledge is power.

Stats At A Glance

AoIP Stream Monitor gives you a comprehensive heads-up display of data for up to 16 networked streams. Each stream tile features a prominent LUFS loudness measurement, user definable under- and over-loudness visual alerts, and stream error alarm. Realtime meter bargraphs display relative loudness for each channel within the stream; multi-channel streams (i.e., 5.1+2 content) have a bargraph corresponding to each embedded channel.

Status Tab

Click on any stream tile to instantly populate the four adjacent information tabs. The Status tab gives useful stream information like the stream’s RTSP address, date and time transmission began, total number of bytes and packets received, packet loss, and other notable data points.

SDP Tab

Stream Description Protocol is the basic transport mechanism of every AoIP stream. But up until now, you couldn’t examine this essential data. With AoIP Stream Monitor you can get stream SDP information with a click. Even better, you can copy displayed details for use in stream players, diagnostics, etc.

NIC Tab

Youcan’t have AoIP without Ethernet. So it makes sense to keep tabs on the health of your PC’s network interface cards – especially if that PC receives, delivers, mixes, or routes crucial program audio. A quick click displays minute data about your network connection. And since all Lawo RƎLAY software supports the ST2110-7 standard for dual-redundant network connections, ASM gives you a tab to monitor both.

Finally. AoIP done right.
Everybody’s buzzing about AES67. And for good reason. Finally there’s a real standard for connecting together IP equipment from different manufacturers. This is why RƎLAY is 100% AES67-compliant. Some purveyors of proprietary protocols claim AES67 is incomplete — but we pair it with RAVENNA, the standards-based advertising and discovery protocol with AES67 compliance baked in. With RƎLAY, you can connect and control any studio hardware or software you choose, from the ever-expanding AES67 / RAVENNA universe.

Here are more broadcast companies who believe open standards are the only way to go.

Get networked.

Here’s what you’ll need to run AoIP Stream Monitor.

  • PC with Intel I-5 or I-7 quad-core CPU or better, with a CPU benchmark 10,000 points minimum.
    (based on ratings from cpubenchmark.net)
  • Dedicated graphics card recommended for improved performance.
  • Windows 7, 8, 10, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Server 2016.
  • 8GB RAM, 2GB drive space.
  • Gigabit Ethernet LAN connection (preferably PTP-aware).

The rest of the family.

In addition to AoIP Stream Monitor , we’ve got a sophisticated Virtual Mixer with touchscreen controls, a versatile PC-based switching / Routing application, and a PC virtual sound card. Read on to find out more about RƎLAY Virtual Radio .

RƎLAY VRX Virtual Radio Mixer

A powerful mixing console that runs in a virtualized environment. No racks of gear to devour space and money – RƎLAY VRX runs on standard PCs and laptops, with an intuitive, multitouch-enabled  interface that’s easy to learn and use. Get the details >>

RƎLAY VPB Virtual Patch Bay

They said it couldn’t be done: a cross-point patch bay on a PC? RƎLAY VPB gives you unrestricted control over the routing and mixing of audio signals on your computer. Patch inputs to outputs, combine multiple channels, even apply processing. Do more >>

RƎLAY VSC Virtual Sound Card

Good sound cards are expensive. Cheap sound cards make cheap sound. And neither ever have enough outputs. Or connect to your AoIP network. RƎLAY VSC to the rescue: unlock 64 bi-directional channels of stereo I/O — all AES67 standards-compliant, naturally. Read On >>
