Smartphones as IFB receivers for clients.

Recommended Posts

I’m currently working with radio, in the Swedish public radio. The company prides itself in having the same kind of solution that Vincent is talking about. We have dedicated servers, phones and custom made backpacks with equipment to broadcast high quality audio from anywhere with 4G network. Our best latency is around a second or more, so it’s really not suitable for video. I guess there are things you can do to get the latency down of course, but still i think it’d be too much for video. 

Theres an open source project called IRIS if anyone’s interested in making a device like Vincent’s. It’s based on raspberry pi and opus.

You got a link to that? Can not find it so quickly. I base my code on the openOb project. I forked it and buiding my software around that. It is still in "hobby" status though, but when I got it it somehow functioning, I will update here.

Yeah that is because of the added layers, in your case 4G. Not much control over that. In our situation it would be a completely controlled network (own "server", own LAN, own clients), so much more control over those things.
