Lost & Found: Comrex Opal

Every once in a while we take a product and put in their deserved spotlights; Lost & Found. This time: Comrex Opal!

Guest interviews don’t have to be complicated. Expert guests (like entertainers, political pundits, athletes, and others) don’t always have access to engineers. They need something as simple to use and familiar as a phone call. But that doesn’t mean a radio program should settle for phone quality audio. 

Opal is an IP audio gateway that enables guests to connect to the studio by simply clicking a link. It provides HD quality audio from consumer-grade equipment, like a cellphone or a computer with a microphone. It’s easy enough to use without a technical background, and most importantly, it sounds great.

Opal works by activating the Opus encoder built into commonly used browsers, including Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox, and Opera. As a result, Opal can connect to any computer, Android, or iOS device with one of those browsers installed. All a remote guest needs to transmit audio is a browser and a microphone. Opal enables guests to connect to the studio by simply clicking a link. Unlike Skype and other apps, the remote guest doesn’t install a thing – they just click a button, and go live! 

You can also download an app for Android and iOS.
