When it became clear that the audio routing system at Colorado Public Radio (CPR) network was failing repeatedly and reaching its end of life, CPR revived its air waves with Audio over IP from Axia. CPR began the conversation about switching to an AoIP infrastructure in its CPR Bridges Broadcast Center located at the Denver Tech Center in Centennial, Colorado, in August of 2015. The Colorado Public Radio family includes three separate services: CPR News, CPR Classical, and CPRs Open Air, an independent music format. According to CPR, its network reaches more than 470,000 listeners via 14 stations and 20 translators, with five studio sites across the state.Read More

Audio processing guru Leif Claesson may have been quiet the last several months, but that’s only because he’s been extremely busy making Omnia processing better than ever. And he’s definitely got something up his sleeve for Omnia at IBC 2017.
For those of you who don’t know Leif, he has been a part of the Telos Alliance family for 14 years. His many accomplishments include various proprietary technologies incorporated into the products of Telos Alliance’s Linear Acoustic, the worldwide leader in television loudness control, as well as Omnia products with the creation of the popular Omnia.9 audio processor, the Omnia.7 line of audio processors, and the Omnia.9sg stereo generator. Leif also contributed to the Z/IPStream 9X/2 streaming software. All of these products include acclaimed features created and engineered by Leif. He designed Omnia’s proprietary “Undo” technology, which removes distortion from poorly mastered source material. His legendary Psychoacoustically Controlled Distortion-Masking Clipper restores life to music, adding extra loudness and further reducing distortion.
Here, I sit down with Leif to get his take on some of the upcoming reveals he’ll be making at IBC 2017 in this short Q&A.Read More
Despite its wide usage in radio, television has lagged behind in the adoption of Audio over IP. To be sure, re-thinking audio distribution comes with significant challenges and questions that must be considered: How will the new format mesh with legacy technology and infrastructure? Will it be reliable and robust enough for television, including live broadcasts?Read More
Telos Alliance invented Audio over IP for broadcast years ago, revolutionizing workflows for the broadcast industry and making broadcast operations cheaper, better, and faster to install. AoIP has since become the standard for broadcast facilities. Adoption of AoIP allows broadcast plants to be more powerful, less expensive to buy and maintain, and faster to build. In a never-ending effort to optimize their workflows, broadcasters now want to take advantage of what AoIP enables next: the ability to control content creation virtually. Presenters now get to see and control their gear via optimized graphical user interfaces (GUI) no matter where they are—in the studio or on remote. With Virtual Radio control, they can put themselves on the air from anywhere.Read More
