The Telos Z/IPStream processors and encoders feature the company’s proprietary Livewire+ AES67 IP networking technology.
The Telos Alliance of companies that includes Telos, Linear Acoustic and Minnetonka will exhibit its latest audio over IP (AoIP) products in the exhibit stand of local dealer AVC Group (# G2-20) at the CABSAT 2017 conference in Dubai. Specifically, the company has standardized on the AES67 audio networking protocol for sharing audio signals over an Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure and will show a large variety of products that include Livewire+ AES67, the Telos Alliances own AES67-compliant AoIP protocol.
CABSAT will also serve as the introduction of the Telos Alliance's newly formed TV Solutions Group (TVSG) to the Middle East. TVSG is an initiative that spans all six brands of the Telos Alliance, bringing together products from Telos, Omnia, Axia, 25-Seven, Linear Acoustic and Minnetonka to fulfill the expanding needs of the TV broadcast markets via a single working group, with AoIP and AES67 education and deployment one of the group's top priorities.
Martin Dyster, vice president of Business Development, TV, the Telos Alliance, said that AES67 brings the industry one step closer to unleashing the power of an all-IP audio and video infrastructure. As the inventor of AoIP for broadcast, he said The Telos Alliance is well suited to helping TV broadcasters make the migration to AoIP.
At the AVC CABSAT stand, Livewire+ AES67 solutions will be shown, which help broadcasters make the transition to an AES67/AoIP backbone will include: the Axia Fusion console connected to the Axia PowerStation engine; the Axia iQ and Radius consoles connected to QOR.32 & QOR.16 console engines, respectively; the Omnia VOCO 8 mic processor, and Telos Alliance SDI, Analog and Mixed Signal xNodes—all AES67-compliant.
The Telos Alliance will also be demonstrating its Omnia.7, 9, and 11 audio processors and 9sg stereo generator, along with the Telos Systems VX broadcast VoIP talk show system, Z/IP One IP codec, and Z/IPStream R/1 and R/2 stream processors/encoders. Minnetonka will show its AudioTools Server v4 for loudness and workflows, including the new Operator app, AudioTools Cloud, and the SurCode encoding and decoding plug-in family. Loudness control products from Linear Acoustic, including the AERO.10 and AERO.2000 television audio processors and the LQ-1000 loudness quality monitor, will also have a presence at the AVC stand.
The Axia IP-Tablet can seamlessly control any Axia console (pictured) via an intuitive interface that provides easy access to all control and hardware resources.
In related news, Axia, a member company of the Telos Alliance, has introduced a new Axia IP-Tablet, designed by Livewire partner and Telos Alliance dealer Jérôme Gahery from IP-Studio specifically for controlling many Telos Alliance products.
Axia IP-Tablet can seamlessly control any Axia console via an intuitive interface that provides easy access to all control and hardware resources. It also simplifies and aggregates control of several Telos Alliance devices, with the ability to customize the settings and create shortcuts to control Telos Alliance hardware. Broadcasters can also use the IP-Tablet to manage user rights for device access, linking a user's profile to their specific needs and access privileges.
Because it can replace an external monitor needed by an Axia Fusion or Element console, the IP-Tablet software also frees up space and sightlines in the studio. The aluminum panel fits right into any Fusion console to house a 10-inch Windows tablet, just like a 4-fader module occupying four console slots.
The Axia IP-Tablet runs on any Windows tablet and helps to expand and enhance the functionality of an Axia studio console and the various connected Telos Alliance equipment. Sold as individual modules, customers can buy those that are most relevant and beneficial to their installation, including modules for Telos Systems, Omnia Audio, Fusion Console Control (a Basic version is also available), Axia Pathfinder, and Metadata Link.
