Comrex STAC VIP VoIP Gets Skype OK
June 12, 2012 at 2:22 PM (PT)
SKYPE has qualified COMREX STAC VIP VoIP Call Management Systems for talk shows to allow it to process SKYPE calls alongside all other calls for radio call-in shows. Certification means the STAC VIP meets the guidelines to be called "Plugged into SKYPE" and can carry the SKYPE logo.
"SKYPE support was an important factor in development of the VIP product," COMREX Technical Dir. TOM HARTNETT said. "SKYPE, by its nature, carries very high-fidelity audio when being used between SKYPE clients. SKYPE support means stations that use STAC-VIP for their call-ins can take wideband calls from anyone who has SKYPE installed on their PC or smartphone."
In addition, STAC VIP allows SKYPE calls to be conferenced with other, normal callers as well as those using the COMREX "VIP QC" app for smartphones, which also provides high fidelity. STAC VIP now contains a wide variety of tools to rid radio programs of thin, fatiguing telephone sound while seamlessly supporting legacy phone systems.
