 aixtream 24/7 audio software has been growing continuously and supports many features:

  • File processing to generate files of various types of on-demand streaming formats (HLS, DASH, CMAF). This also includes interfacing with playlist scheduling APIs (like MusicMaster), implementation of crossfades and cue in/outs as well as loudness adjustment. 
  • Transcoding and Studio-Transmitter-Linking are easily covered thanks to the broad range of protocols (incl. SRT, RIST) and encoding algorithms supported.
  • DAB and FM monitoring for reception of DAB/FM signals for monitoring, archival or format conversion into any other output listed here.
  • DVB mux/demux for input/output of DVB-compliant MPEG TS. The demux can also be used for format conversion into any other output listed here. 
  • aixtream can now be run on your bare metal generic servers and MINI PCs, in a VM or in the Cloud — including deployed in Docker container, e.g., for AWS. 

Other miscellaneous features include sat reception, loudness control, secure audio and event logging, audio delay management
