Z/IPStream A/XE can process audio for a variety of applications, bitrate-reduced and linear. It runs in the background as a Windows service, can be fully-managed and configured remotely with a web browser, and can even process and encode multiple streams in various formats simultaneously.
Genuine 3-Band Omnia processing to improve audio levels, loudness and perceived quality.
Software only, no special cards required
Runs as a Windows service in the background. No need to log in.
Managed from anywhere through a web browser, locally or across the Internet
Each license = one stereo input. The user can add each license to the same PC or separate PCs.
Each program input can be processed and encoded in multiple ways, and sent to multiple servers simultaneously.
Processed audio can also be sent to a local sound device for monitoring.
High-performance, low memory footprint, native application
Can operate with Virtual Audio Cable driver. This allows A/XE to accept audio from a playout system or other applications on the same PC. It can also be used to feed the processed audio from A/XE to another application on the same PC.
All configuration information is stored in a single XML file for simple configuration backup/restore.
Seamlessly integrates with other software
The new Virtual Audio Cable allows Z/IPStream A/XE to receive, process, and send audio to other software on the PC. Internally encoded Shoutcast or Wowza server streams can be “tagged” with “now- playing” information received from automation systems or another application. An internal scheduler can start and stop streams at specific times, or daypart processing presets for different shows.
Included with A/XE is a license for the multi-channel version of the Axia IP-Audio driver. Customers with a Livewire® installation can use the Axia IP-Audio driver to send and receive audio directly from a Livewire network without the need for hardware audio cards.
Accepts metadata from a variety of sources and uses it to “tag” the audio stream. This information is then sent to the media server and displayed in the user’s media player. Metadata can be accepted over TCP/IP and UDP, or from text files. A/XE can accept just about any format, from simple, line-based messages to XML messages and anything in between. An included set of metadata filters (small scripts, using the Lua scripting language) can be further edited and customized.
Processing by Omnia
Z/IPStream A/XE features adjustable wide-band AGC with a three-band compressor/limiter, IIF EQ and low-pass filter, and a precision look-ahead final limiter to prevent clipping. Resulting streams are cleaner, clearer, and with more presence and detail.
