fernBerrie Radio

Reach more people with higher quality at lower bitrates

Do you know how much data is moved every minute to your listeners? How much bandwidth is used by audio streaming?

With their work and inventions, our team has contributed to world wide standards in audio coding, so we know. Now, another big step in audio coding has been made by the Fraunhofer Institute: xHE AAC. It’s the greatest codec ever.

xHE AAC?

One of the newest developments by the Fraunhofer Institute: Extended High-Efficiency AAC is the most developed audio codec algorithm yet. It achieves great audio quality even at bitrates as low as 16kbp/s and manages both speech and music equally well. This can save you up to 70% of your bandwidth while delivering similar or better results than before. For more information, see here

The fernBerrie Radio is the smallest streaming device yet! However, even with its small size it supports all industry standards and boasts enough power to carry out multiple audio transmissions at once, depending on the required quality. It offers all you need for RTP and SIP transmission with any codec you like.

The fernBerrie Radio is perfect for anyone looking for a low-cost audio streaming solution and is the most affordable solution powered by aixtream.

Industry Standards

All aixtream products represent the cutting edge of contemporary audio transmission and recording technology. All modern formats and protocols are supported and new developments are quickly adapted into the ferncast reportoire. This shows itself in the wide range of available codec algorithms, including Opus, AAC, xHE AAC, mp3, Vorbis and more, and also in all the supported transport and streaming protocols. RTP and SIP are supported for classical broadcasting applications, just like HLS, RTMP and IceCast for OTT streaming. We are especially proud of our support for DVB transmission capabilities. Finally, with our focus on cutting edge technology input and output via AES67 is of course also possible.

Affordable

The fernBerrie Radio is meant to be affordable even for tight budgets, e.g. smaller radio stations. If you are an independent radio station, the fernBerrie Radio powered by aixtream is the solution you need.
