Gagl, A New Remote Contribution Solution, Is Now Available
Subscriptions for this new cloud-based service now available from Comrex
DEVENS, MA, September 13th, 2022 – Gagl, a new cloud service for remote contribution from Comrex, is now available for purchase. Subscriptions are available for $35.00 USD per month or $350.00 USD per year with a free 14-day trial.
Gagl allows between one and five users to send and receive audio from computers and smartphones. Each user receives their own mix-minus to hear other connected guests, and the Gagl audio is delivered to a Comrex hardware codec (such as ACCESS or BRIC-Link, usually in a studio). All participants can hear other participants and the codec “sends” audio back to them.
Participants can connect and send audio by simply clicking a link using any common web browser. Gagl is designed to be used with consumer grade equipment, so contributors only need a device and a headset to get on the air. The simple user interface makes it easy for users with any level of technical experience to use.
Gagl uses the Opus audio encoder, with a bit rate that delivers both voice and music in excellent quality. Gagl also delivers audio directly to a Comrex codec with all the stability enhancements, pro-grade audio connections, and features that hardware codecs provide.
Gagl could be used as the hub for a news program or for a morning radio show to support multiple simultaneous contributor connections. Because it offers low latency, it’s appropriate for call-in talk radio. Gagl could also be used to allow a single contributor to connect back to the studio.
