OpenBroadcaster has released open source software to provide Livewire\RTP support with Axia Audio over IP (AoIP) consoles. This exciting added functionality presents the opportunity to easily field, deploy and integrate standalone OBPlayer into the AoIP broadcast chain with CAP EAS emergency alerts.
OpenBroadcaster has been on a mission to develop and provide products and services for broadcasters of any size, working in analog or digital environments. Offering open-source broadcasting solutions to individuals, small-to-medium sized businesses and communities they allow users to distribute media over the air and via the Internet in an efficient and cost-effective manner. This innovation is built on the suite of web-enabled general software and automation appliances with online media libraries, community play lists, multi-station scheduling and streaming.
We aim to strengthen links between communities and cultures globally by supporting and facilitating the formation of broadcaster networks capable of pooling resources, jointly managing media, and sharing stories. OBPlayer sends a multicast RTP stream that appears as a channel on Axia AoIP consoles. The outgoing digital stream from the console station is ingested into their systems, sent to an Icecast server where a BARIX unit at the transmitter site plays out on radio.
The new public Ver 5x series source code, documentation and installation instructions are available on Github for all to use. Read more…
