DEVENS, MA, Apr. 2nd, 2024 – This year at NAB, Comrex will be debuting Hotline, a major feature update to Gagl. Comrex will also be introducing Gagl Solo, a new tier of their Gagl remote contribution service designed for one-to-one connections.

Gagl enables users to send and receive audio through common web browsers to a Comrex hardware IP audio codec such as an ACCESS or BRIC-Link. Gagl supports up to five remote participants in one session. Gagl Solo supports single guest connections, and is perfect for users who don’t need to manage multiple participants such as a solo contributor or reporter in the field.

Gagl is simple enough for anyone to use and doesn’t require any specialized hardware or software on the remote end for implementation. With a computer or smartphone plus a headset, high-quality audio can be transmitted bidirectionally with minimal latency providing a simple way to get anyone on the air.

Gagl + Hotline provides a ten-digit telephone number with each subscription. Calls made to or from your Hotline number from mobile phones will sound dramatically improved, with higher fidelity than a normal phone call. A guest or reporter can call the number using an AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon cell phone. The caller’s audio will be presented within the Gagl interface in HD Voice quality for clean, clear full fidelity for use on-air. 

Acquiring high-quality audio from remote locations is essential for creating compelling radio. Providing flexibility for guests who can’t come into the studio was a driving force behind Gagl’s creation. Gagl + Hotline creates more options for guest connectivity and makes it even more valuable for radio programming.

Gagl Solo, Gagl + Hotline, and Comrex’s suite of broadcast reliable products will be on display at the 2024 NAB Show in Vegas this April 14-17th. Add Comrex to your planner.
