The Telos alliance took the broadcast industry by storm last week when it announced two major new products.
The Telos Infinity IP Intercom is a complete reimagining of broadcast communications technology developed by the Telos Alliance engineering team that invented AoIP for broadcast in 2003. More than just a talkback system, Telos Infinity IP Intercom converges voice communication and contribution audio on a single IT backbone employing the latest standards-based VoIP and AoIP transport to provide dedicated features and functionality without compromise or limitations. Telos Infinity IP Intercom replaces outmoded matrix technology with an advanced, distributed IP network solution that provides superior functionality in a simplified, more elegant form. Being matrix-free allows plug-and-play networked hardware and software devices to be added to the system as part of a planned or ad-hoc change, without ever worrying that you might exceed the number of available ports on a matrix. Telos Infinity IP Intercom marks the next generation of Audio over IP solutions destined to revolutionize broadcast communication through the creation of disruptive and innovative technologies - and it’s just the start. More functionality, features and new products are just around the corner. Talk to your local Telos Infinity representative or contact Telos Alliance directly to learn more. Introduced at the IBC 2017, Telos Infinity won the prestigious TVBEurope Best of Show Award, proving that it is really living up to it’s tag line -
The AoIP Solution that Changes Everything
Livewire partner IP-Studio also announced the release of its Virtual Radio suite of software. Audio over IP (AoIP) has become the standard for broadcast facilities, allowing broadcast plants to be more powerful, less expensive to buy and maintain, and faster to build. In a never ending effort to optimize workflows, broadcasters want to take advantage of what AoIP enables next: the ability to control content creation virtually. They now get to see and control their gear via optimized graphical user interfaces, no matter where they are—in the studio or on remote. With Virtual Radio control, they can put themselves on the air from anywhere!
Recipient of the RadioWorld International Best Of Show award at IBC 2017, this one-of-a-kind software suite is a bold step toward the virtual radio studio of the future. It minimizes the need for cumbersome and sight-blocking monitors by virtualizing the monitoring and control of your gear on a Windows tablet (anything from a low-cost Asus model to a high-end Microsoft Surface) running any of the IP-Tablet Virtual Radio software modules. Sold individually, you can buy those software modules that are most relevant and beneficial to your studio setup, such as the Telos Systems VX or VX Prime phone systems, the Telos Z/IP ONE IP-audio codec, the Omnia.9 audio processor and Omnia VOCO 8 mic processor, Axia Fusion Console via modules that control the Axia PowerStation and StudioEngine, xNode control, and Axia Pathfinder buttons. There’s even a Metadata Tools app that allows you to pull metadata information from your automation system to display on the tablet screen. Don’t want to say goodbye to your studio monitors? No worries. IP-Tablet Virtual Radio software can run on your Windows PC, as well.
Aside from virtualizing control, the IP-Tablet also allows you to manage user rights for device access, linking a user’s profile to his or her needs. You can mount the Axia IP-Tablet right into your Fusion console with a beautifully machined, completely flush IP-Tablet Mount or use it on a freestanding tablet. Adding great value to your Axia console purchase, this the IP-Tablet Virtual Radio software puts your most-used console functions right at your fingertips!
