Meet Marc Bakos.

As broadcasters, we have to come up with creative ways to stay on the air, no matter what. Up until recently, that has meant hardware redundancy, which is costly and, unfortunately, not always the most flexible. We designed Omnia.9 PTN especially for broadcasters who need maximum flexibility to move their entire processing infrastructure as needed and to be able to access it from a variety of locations. Omnia.9 PTN is a high-density audio processing solution that is designed for use in HA (high availability) situations.
Broadcasters are pushing their remote control capabilities to new heights as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt normal operations. While at first, the effects were as small as the reduction of staff and closing of individual studios for cleaning, currently, entire studio facilities are shutting down with all staff told to work remotely whenever possible.
Those who have made the partial or full transition to a modern Audio over IP studio infrastructure are particularly well-positioned to handle the rapid onset of the virus-related staffing restrictions. Many engineers have found that the remote control features they already use for troubleshooting are highly extensible and can be slightly modified for use by production staff.Read More

At Telos Alliance, we understand the challenges of staying on-air during coronavirus in the face of quarantines, shelter-in-place, and self-isolation. It’s a comfort to know our customers are out there informing, educating, and keeping us safe.
A television engineer once told me that he’d been in the industry long enough to remember when audio was the simple part of TV: “If you turned up the volume and heard sound, you were all set.” The transition to DTV changed all of that as broadcasters wrapped their heads around multichannel audio as well as loudness and compliance issues, and now the emergence of immersive audio and the deployment of ATSC 3.0 has introduced an entirely new television audio lexicon. We thought it might be time to help untangle the ball of TV audio twine.Read More
