For some years, ISDN has been the technology of choice for contributing to radio programmes. There are several reasons to look at alternative options...
- Telecoms providers such as AT&T and BT are expected to withdraw ISDN provision in the coming years.
- New technology allows ISDN equivalent audio to be sent and received over the internet. You're already paying for your broadband connection, so why continue to pay for an ISDN line too?
- An ISDN line requires an expensive hardware 'codec' at your end. When ISDN is no more, this too becomes obsolete.
- If you relocate your office or move home, an ISDN line can't easily be migrated in the same way that a broadband connection can.

Remote Contribution Terminal
- Our Remote Contribution Terminal is a black box which connects to the broadcaster over the internet using our ipDTL technology. Unlike ISDN, it can also be used to facilitate TV interviews. The equipment is installed by In:Quality and can be paid for on a 'per use' basis by the broadcaster or on a contract by your organisation (UK only).
