Sometimes an idea comes along that just makes us all do a face-plant, and say: “Of course!…Perfect!”
Kevin Leach — the founding and creative force behind ipDTL — and his development team, just launched what could be the convergence communication solution for voice-actors seeking ISDN-or-better quality remote recording.
The biggest recent announcement from in:Quality was the “Tel” feature…allowing you to dial a “phone patch” along with your IP connection. Now the Tel feature has been expended, allowing you to dial an ISDN line “…almost anywhere in the world with your computer and an internet connection.”
[as of this release, the functionality to RECEIVE an ISDN call is not yet present]
I shoulda known Leach was working on something like this. He’s been asking for mine and others’ ISDN SPIDS lately for test calls.
Now I know what he’s been up to.
A NEW LEVEL
The development of this product takes the debate over ISDN to a whole different dimension. For instance, why would we need a service like ISDN To Go, now?…or ANY bridging service? No, a talent cannot yet receive an ISDN caller on this system, but what’s the big deal?…just call them! No need to pay for an ISDN Long-Distance service if you’ve already got your ipDTL account with the “Tel” add-on.
Kevin was kind enough to offer me a few other insights into this development. My questions and his answers are below.
Very! It’s taken us the best part of a year and has added several layers of complexity to our operation. The fact that no other company has achieved this is evidence enough of the challenges we’ve faced.
What’s the added cost for you or for the talent?
Nice going, Kevin Leach!
