Multi-studio phone system
Telos VX shares phone lines across a number of studios using standard IP technology. It is a scalable system that is compatible with a variety of VoIP gateways and PBXs. Gateways are available for POTS, T1/E1, and both BRI and PRI ISDN. Units can be installed as rack-mount units for large numbers of connections or desktop boxes that interface a few POTS lines. The SIP interface transfers calls between the office and studio systems. The VX Engine is a 2RU device providing call control and audio processing. There is one hybrid per line, allowing multiple calls to be conferenced and aired simultaneously with excellent quality. The VX Director Phone has two large, high-contrast color LCD panels that provide line status, detailed caller information and fader assignments. Text can be written to the line fields to describe calls from the Telos Assistant Producer PC application.
What the judges had to say:
“Voice over IP is the new way to take phones.”
“This is a natural step in adopting VoIP for on-air radio.”
