Distributed and Decentralised Routing
Telos Alliance xNodes help form the backbone of a distributed and decentralised Audio-over-IP routing system. With SDI, AES, analog and even microphone and GPIO options available, these compact and cost-effective interfaces help connect your baseband audio devices to a distributed Livewire+ AES67 ‘matrix’ that routes audio using your existing IT infrastructure.
Audio Mixing - Hardware and Software Solutions
Telos Alliance’ Axia AoIP mixing consoles may well be the best kept secret in TV sound. With many thousands of AoIP consoles already installed in radio studios around the world, television is starting to wake up to AoIP and in particular the benefits of interoperable systems that feature AES67, part of the SMPTE 2110-6 Media-over-IP standard. AoIP isn’t new, it is a mature and proven technology that was invented by the Telos Alliance in 2003.
Multi-Line Call Handling
TV Broadcast facilities are sometimes reluctant to embrace change. A good example is the continued use of antiquated telephony solutions for contribution and communications. So why, when our business phone systems are IP, and our audio systems increasingly based on AoIP, don’t we make use of technology that can bring the two together? At Telos Alliance, we do exactly that. Telos Alliance Broadcast Telephone Systems embrace both the traditional and the new.
Signal Distribution and Format Conversion
In a traditional baseband audio system, signal distribution and format conversion are tasks that usually require dedicated devices, either rackmount or as part of a modular card frame, plus the cabling infrastructure to get the signal from A to B. In a distributed network system using Livewire+ AES67, the end point devices are still required, but the infrastructure is part of the existing COTS network and many of the end point devices may already exist as part of the routing system.
Site to Site Connectivity
Telos System network audio codecs are used around the world to provide ultra-reliable, best quality audio connectivity between remote locations, regardless of how challenging the network connection might be. As well as industry leading ZIP and Zephyr codecs, Telos Alliance xNodes operating in unicast SIP mode are an ideal and cost effective choice where high-speed WAN and VLAN networks exist.
Real-Time Audio Processing
For the past 15 years, Linear Acoustic® AERO-series processors have been the industry standard choice for delivering multi-channel digital television audio that assures broadcasters of meeting compliance and regulatory demands while simultaneously providing viewers with the highest quality audio experience possible.
Measurement and Monitoring
Ensuring that the audio emitted and transmitted from your broadcast plant meets increasingly strict compliance criteria is a constant challenge for content providers and playout facility operators worldwide. The audio we produce is becoming more complex, surround sound, multi-language, SAP and forthcoming Next Generation Audio formats, mean that the challenge of maintaining a consistent and high-quality viewer listening experience has never been tougher.
IP Intercom and Communications
Imagine a digital intercom system with no central matrix. Actually, don’t bother — we’ve built one. Axia IP Intercom saves on cost, space, and installation time, and eliminates special plug-in cards altogether. It’s real plug and play that works every time — even when you need to add a station, or reconfigure the ones you’ve got.
