Telos Alliance Virtualizes VX VoIP System

The powerful and adaptable voice over IP system for broadcast featuring Telos high-performance audio now delivers all the benefits of virtualization.

Telos Alliance introduced broadcasters to the benefits of VoIP a decade ago with VX, the world’s first VoIP talkshow system, in a hardware appliance. Now, Telos VXs is helping broadcasters reap the benefits of true virtualization as they adapt to changing broadcast workflows and operations, all while making it easier for teams to produce great-sounding and compelling content.

Broadcasters can deploy VXs on their servers in the rack room, on shared servers in the centralized data center, or in cloud instances. These deployment options deliver the benefits of virtualization, such as easier facility-wide upgrades, cost-efficiency, and automated deployment without site visits. Broadcasters can scale VXs in size from a single studio to a facility-wide talkshow system to a multi-location system.

Renowned Audio Quality

Using VoIP, VXs combines modern networking with the power of digital signal processing developed by Telos over the past three decades. Every call gets fifth-generation audio processing, packed full of technology engineered to extract the cleanest, clearest caller audio from any phone line—even noisy cellular calls.

VXs includes Smart AGC coupled with Telos’ three-band adaptive Digital Dynamic EQ, a three-band adaptive spectral processor, noise gating, and Acoustic Echo Cancellation. HD voice calls benefit from VX’s native support of the G.722 codec, instantly improving caller speech quality.

Standards-Based for Easy Connectivity

Whether you are new to IP networking, integrating with an existing AoIP network, or plugging into a Livewire network, you can integrate VXs into your ecosystem. For those new to IP-Audio networking, VXs will work with all console brands, networked or not, using Telos Alliance xNodes.

Installing a VX VoIP system in facilities already powered by Livewire+ AES67 networks is simple. The new VX system will plug right in, using automatic mix-minus from your Axia consoles and existing phone modules for control.

Support for AES67 gives broadcasters the capability of integrating VX into any AES67 or compatible SMPTE 2110-30 environments. Support for SAP advertisement means VX smoothly integrates alongside AES67-enabled Dante devices, as well. With plug-and-play connectivity, you can network multiple channels of audio with any manufacturer’s AES67-compliant hardware.

VXs is available as a subscription or a buyout. TelosCare PLUS, for enhanced service and support, is included while a VXs subscription is active. With a one-time buyout, TelosCare PLUS is included for the first year and renewable yearly after that.
