Posted by Krissy Rushing on Aug 23, 2017 10:15:00 AM

The Telos Alliance will introduce several new products to the European broadcast market at IBC 2017 next month in Amsterdam. A number of updates to existing lines will be featured as well. The Telos Alliance will exhibit September 15-19 in stand #8.D47 at the RAI Amsterdam.

In addition to the exciting announcement from the Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group that will break the day of the show, both Omnia and Axia are coming out strong at IBC 2017. Omnia continues to trailblaze in processing with products like the new VOLT processor and software updates that make existing Omnia processors more powerful, without users having to buy a whole new box. Meanwhile, Axia is redefining the future of radio with virtual radio, as well as introducing several new Axia Fusion console products that help broadcasters dial in their console to their tastes.

Virtual Radio to Flush-Mounting: 3 Ways to Customize Your Axia Fusion

Posted by Krissy Rushing on Jul 5, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Axia designed the Fusion console with several things in mind: build quality to drool over, incredible intelligence that makes even newbs seem like experts, and perhaps what broadcast engineers value most, total flexibility. With features and capabilities informed by its rich IP-Audio experience, this is Axia's flagship surface, available in frame sizes to support consoles of 8 to 40 faders in single or multiple linked frames.

Engineer Roundtable: Behind the Omnia VOLT Audio Processor

Posted by Krissy Rushing on May 9, 2017 4:25:01 PM

Cornelius Gould, Geoff Steadman, and Rob Dye sound off on creating the world’s best-sounding 1RU broadcast audio processor, the newly released Omnia VOLT.

Omnia VOLT is a 1RU processor like Omnia ONE. What is the difference between the two?

VOLT shares some technology with the ONE, including some time-tested circuit design including I/O hardened for harsh environments. That's where the similarity ends. VOLT’s new software framework represents a major step forward from the ONE in terms of sound, functionality, and value. VOLT has capabilities we just could not fit in the ONE, like a fifth-band AGC, interactive crossovers, Stereo Enhancer, patch points for watermarking, HTML-5 GUI, and our new QuickTweak system; the list goes on. VOLT will take over as our main 1RU processor offering, and maintains the price point of the ONE. The ONE is a great act to follow. With more than 13,000 units installed, it is the best-selling audio processor ever made, and we’ll continue to sell it for some time. VOLT carries on that rugged, built-like-a-tank tradition. Omnia fans are going to love it, and others will be won over.

25-Seven Launches TVC-15 Broadcast Audio Watermarking Monitor

Posted by Krissy Rushing on Mar 8, 2017 2:59:13 PM

The Telos Alliance this week announced the launch of the 25-Seven TVC-15 Broadcast Watermark Analyzer & Monitor, the first modulation monitor for watermarking. With TVC-15, radio stations in electronically measured markets can now monitor how each element in their programming supports audio watermarking.

Measurements happen in real time, without the need of a watermark encoder. Every 400 milliseconds, TVC-15 detects watermarks in any audio you feed it. This could be your own station's audio, or that of a competing station in your market. You can monitor any source, live or recorded.
