CEO Frank Foti on Disruptive Innovation at NAB 2016

Posted by Frank Foti on Apr 28, 2016 10:42:47 AM

NAB 2016 is now in the books—another in the long list of exciting adventures we've experienced here at the Telos Alliance! Traffic in both of the Telos Alliance locations—Radio in the North Hall, TV in the South—was nonstop, with folks sometimes three-deep trying to get a look at our various offerings. In keeping with our mission of “disruptive innovation," the Telos Alliance radio division introduced µMPX. ( Download the µMPX one-sheeter here.) This is a new technique for transporting the FM-Stereo composite (MPX) signal over an efficient data pipe. In a normal linear application, a connection that is more than 3Mbps would be required for an MPX path. µMPX is able to accomplish this using a 320kbps path! We do this with a newly designed, dedicated codec for the MPX signal. There is zero loss of peak control, and the audio quality is basically transparent. The µMPX display was live, and it incorporated a digital STL link provided by our friends at Moseley, which carried the signal over to the Nautel booth, where it was connected into one of their transmitters. At this time, we are finalizing some aspects of the tech, so our demo at NAB was essentially a preview. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come on this exciting development!

TV at NAB: Telos Alliance NAB 2016 Wrap-up

Posted by Shane Toven on Apr 28, 2016 10:37:30 AM


This year at NAB, the Telos Alliance's TV Division was in the South hall alongside many of the other TV broadcasting companies. While we missed our radio friends, who we normally share a booth with, we had an incredible show. Since last year's NAB, we added Minnetonka, with Linear and Minnetonka sharing a booth that received a constant stream of interested folks. We had several new and innovative products on display both in the cloud and in the flesh. Here's our short recap from the TV side of the Telos Alliance.

Silverball Madness in Las Vegas

Posted by Clark Novak on Apr 8, 2015 2:44:00 PM

Those of us of a certain age fondly remember entertainment from the pre-computer days, a time when amusement parks, convenience stores and other entertainment establishments did not have video games, computerized entertainment centers or full-wall videos – no, we had pinball: bright, flashing, noisy, shiny electro-mechanical pinball machines. Magic devices that consumed both hours and quarters like a pro wrestler consumes breakfast; many of us spent too much time to count in front of these machines, until our empty stomachs, stiff legs or sore hands commanded us to quit.

Back to Nature – Vegas Style

Posted by Tom Vernon on Apr 8, 2015 2:12:00 PM

The NAB show – six days of people-packed, full-tilt multimedia mayhem that takes sensory overload to the next level. If this annual experience leaves you feeling a bit shell-shocked, relief may be closer than you think. The Donald H. Baepler Xeric Garden at UNLV isn't on any of the tour maps, but offers a quiet commute with nature in the midst of the turmoil that is Las Vegas.

Have a Blast in Vegas

Posted by Clark Novak on Apr 12, 2012 2:41:00 PM

Those of us who make the annual trek to Sin City for the NAB show every April have likely done all the tourist-y stuff. We've already shaken off the Gulch's glitter, experienced the World's Most Constant Traffic Jam (a/k/a The Strip) and seen enough white tigers to fill a small zoo.
