Free your PC audio.
Modern broadcasting relies on AoIP networks. So why are production PCs stuck with old-fashioned sound cards? They’re expensive. They don’t speak “network.” They can’t support multi-channel audio. It’s as if they’re holding your audio hostage. What to do? Virtualize with RƎLAY VSC. VSC sets your content free. It’s an 8×8 “virtual sound card” for Windows that turns your audio into clean, pristine AES67 streams. Elegant. Flexible. Cost-effective. Isn’t it time your sound card went virtual?
Physical sound cards are handcuffed by PC hardware constraints. But RƎLAY VSC is pure software. It blows past those limits with a low-latency, multi-instance professional ASIO driver with SRC that supports stereo, 8-channel, even 64-channel streams. There are also eight stereo WDM drivers for legacy PC audio apps. On the network side, each connection carries eight uncompressed, bi-directional audio channels — for up to 128 total RAVENNA streams (64 in, 64 out). Your friends will be so envious.
Here are more broadcast companies who believe open standards are the only way to go.
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.
