Infinity IP Intercom Crosses Market Borders at NAB and Beyond

Posted by Krissy Rushing on May 17, 2018 6:37:42 AM

If you visited Telos Alliance at this year's NAB, you may have noticed that we had two booths, one in the north hall and one in the south hall. Why did we add the extra expense, not to mention the extra steps to our pedometers as we traveled back and forth between booths? The answer is simple: Because the Telos Alliance is one company that serves many markets, including TV and Radio, two critical broadcast industry segments, both with unique challenges. What was interesting about this year's show, however, is that the star attraction was the same in both the TV and Radio booths: the new Telos Infinity IP Intercom, developed by the Telos Alliance engineering team that invented AoIP for broadcast in 2003.

Don't Let Bad Sound Bring Your Station Down!

Posted by Dave Sarkies on May 2, 2018 12:00:00 PM

When it comes to winning on the air and via streaming, your broadcast audio processor needs to do one thing, and do it really, really well: Make your station sound incredible. It doesn't matter how many bells and whistles your audio processor has, in the end, your listeners don't care about anything but the quality of your content. That means more than simply creating compelling programming. It is about allowing that content to sounds its absolute best. Crisper, clearer, cleaner, and louder, with less distortion and listener fatigue. So how do you accomplish that? With Omnia, of course.

Posted by Dave Sarkies on May 2, 2018 12:00:00 PM

“Some broadcasters aren’t paying enough attention to their streams,” says David Bialik, Director of Stream Operations for Entercom. “Broadcasters want to make a product advertisers want to sponsor, so delivering a quality product with quality audio is a must. We want to make sure the listener does not want to change the stream, or even adjust the volume for that matter.”

How to achieve this? David, who’s something of a streaming audio authority, having worked on a variety of streaming projects over the years, suggests the Telos Z/IPStream R/2.

Top Reasons to Start Your Facility's Transition to AoIP

Posted by Dave Sarkies on Apr 25, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Telos Alliance invented AoIP for broadcast in 2003 when we introduced Livewire, which has since become the foundation for our Axia brand, and today, broadcasters across the globe use Axia products, powered by Livewire, in thousands of AoIP studios worldwide.

Broadcasters are now beginning to understand the benefit of the AES67 interoperability standard (based largely on our Livewire protocol), which is to help them proceed confidently into the future of broadcast using AoIP as a backbone. With AoIP infrastructure and AES67, equipment from multiple manufacturers is interoperable. Clearly, now is the time to engage AoIP at all levels of your broadcast workflow.
