Telos' Kirk Harnack helps open the information stream
The broadcast community has been abuzz the past few weeks with the news of a major Telco's decision to stop installing ISDN lines. And no wonder: ISDN has been the broadcaster's medium of choice for long-distance, CD-quality remote broadcasts since the original Zephyr made the scene in 1994.
The good news is, there is a replacement, one that can be just as reliable and sound just as good (or better) than ISDN. That replacement is IP - and broadcasters using Telos Z/IP ONE IP codecs will talk your ear off if you ask them about it (see Dave Barnett's article on theBDR.net for a great example).
Still, you may have a bit of trepidation trusting your program audio to a public IP link. That's why our Kirk Harnack has authored "IP Audio Connection Tests," an easy-to-read 5-page primer that gives you practical instruction and identifies online tools to help ensure that your IP connection is delivering the consistent bandwidth needed for successful remotes.
