Ferncast is revolutionizing the broadcast industry with its advanced virtualization solutions

On January 22nd and 23rd, 2020, 133 exhibitors and more than 1500 trade visitors met at HAMBURG OPEN, Germany’s Innovation and Networking Event for Broadcast and AV Technology Professionals to exchange information on the latest product highlights. There, Ferncast had the chance to present fernStudio powered by aixtream software and to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere that has always made Hamburg Open so special. As the future of broadcast technology moves rapidly into server installations and virtual machine solutions by removing embedded products, Ferncast invested all its resources into the aixtream software scheme in order to have a solution which runs on dedicated servers and virtualized machines as well as on dedicated hardware. aixtream has turned into an all-rounder for digital audio transmission and transcoding. Its scalability from 1 to multiple hundreds of streams, its flexibility in terms of supported formats and standards and its ability to grow over time with the broadcaster’s requirements, result in an extremely powerful solution for OTT, DVB, SIP, DAB EDI/IP, transcoding and capturing applications.

From 23rd to 25th January 2020, 8100 visitors attended the 2020 Paris European Radio & Digital Audio Show. Germany and Austria as guest countries had a dedicated pavilion and Ferncast had the opportunity to present its software aixtream and the new white design of fernStudio. The fernStudio is the perfect audio codec solution for sound and branch studios as well as OB vans. With only ½ 19” and 1 RU it offers more than any other codec of comparable size: 8 channels in and out simultaneously, analog and digital on board. Thanks to its AES67 support it can manage even more simultaneous connections than that for an incredibly high connection density. All that in a compact package powered by aixtream.

Hauke Krüger, PhD and CEO of Ferncast said in Paris: “We are excited to attend the European Radio Show here in Paris for the first time and doing together with our partner nacamar is even better. We are looking forward to entering the French market to bring live audio streaming here to the next level. I love this country and I am convinced that aixtream, our software solution, can fulfill the needs of the French broadcasters. This is a great opportunity to find distributors in France as well.”

Ferncast is pleased to announce that a French version is now available on their website.
