At a Glance
Meet IGGY, our family of compact and feature-rich audio-over-IP bridges. Designed to bridge diverse audio formats, IGGY effortlessly brings together AES, MADI, or Analog audio with modern AES67 and ST 2110 network infrastructures. Whether your needs call for individual throwdowns or high-density rackmount configurations, IGGY is equipped to handle it all.
With its robust design, open control, and powerful remote monitoring, IGGY ensures you have full command over your audio network. Plus, our comprehensive network insights further elevate your understanding and control of network conditions. Don’t let bulky equipment or incompatible formats slow you down – with IGGY, you’re always in the groove!
Compact and Feature-Rich Design
Iggy offers a compact form factor that delivers high channel density and robust features, all within a space-saving package. With a range of mounting options, it can be easily deployed in diverse scenarios, whether it’s a throwdown for a one-off event or a permanent rack-mount installation. Pick any three IGGY models and they’ll sit comfortably together in a 1RU mounting tray.
Seamless Integration & Interoperability
In addition to Ross DashBoard, a plethora of discovery and control protocols are available, including NMOS, EmBER+, RAVENNA, SAP, Aneman, JSON API and a full featured WebUI. Tally and GPIO functionality are enabled by TSL and RossTalk. Enable control and monitoring your way, with the flexibility to connect to any network.
Robust & Flexible Design
Compact form factor, flexible mounting options and robust mechanical features allow IGGY to effortlessly adapt to your environment. Locking connectors ensure reliability on important interfaces which include PoE, Tascam DB25, Gig-E, optical ports, Tally output (4x) and TTL GPIO (8x). Redundant power supplies add uncommon robustness to IGGY’s form factor.
