Systems contracting company Jørgen Lien Elektronikk in Nordkapp on the island of Magerøya in northern Norway recently installed a PYKO audio-over-IP network from Digigram to link a number of radio stations across the Nordkapp region and a transmitter site. Just 2103.3km from the North Pole at its most northerly tip, Nordkapp is sparsely populated, but local radio is a vital means of communication throughout the region. The PYKO devices convert analog or digital audio sources to high-quality MP3 or PCM IP streams or play such streams from the network or from locally stored MP3 files. PYKO-In devices have been installed at Radio DSF, the main local radio station in Karasjok, Radio Nordkapp in Honningsvåg, Radio GLR in Kautokeino, and Radio Nye Varanger in Vadsø, all have PYKO-In boxes to broadcasts news to the other radio stations.
