Jutel has developed a fully digital, web-based public audio solution for large public spaces. The project also involves speaker manufacturer Genelec and a healthy dose of agile software development. The system is the first one of its kind in the world.
The first example of which this new sound solution for conference venues is the web-based sound control system installed in the restaurant Nallikari in Oulu.
The application basically allows you to start your own TV and radio station at a conference, which allows the presentations in the conference to be broadcast to the world.
”Functionally similar sound systems do exist, but I don’t think there’s another one that is fully digital and compliant with standards,” says Jorma Kivelä, one of the two founders of Jutel.

By integrating RAVENNA’s AES67-compatible audio-over-IP streaming technology, Jutel builds on standardized and future-proof network interoperability for their advanced radio and audio solutions.”
