25-Seven Systems Voltair
The Telos Alliance has announced a slate of products that the company will present in Las Vegas. Among them:
25-Seven Systems will exhibit its Voltair, shown. It monitors and displays PPM encoding quality based on program material; the company says this ensures that stations get credit for as many PPM listeners to their signal as possible. It says there are 300 units in the field.
Telos’ new Axia Fusion AoIP Console is shipping and will make its official U.S. debut. Telos’ latest networked mixing console comes in multiple frame sizes that support sizes from eight to 28 faders in a single-frame configuration and up to 40 faders using a split-frame configuration. The company also will have Zephyr iPort Plus, a networked 2RU codec for program distribution and long-distance audio sharing between separate studios; a key addition to this version is Content Delay, for program distribution to networks that span several time zones. It allows daypart-sensitive programming to be received and stored locally, ready to air automatically at the proper time in each location. The unit also adds aptX Enhanced coding as an option.
Telos’ Z/IP One Codec has added AES/EBU audio capabilities and major software updates. Improvements include new DSP functions reducing THD numbers, redundant audio inputs with automatic switching, an updated, streamlined HTML interface and optimized coding for reduced CPU load. And the company said five hardware and software makers signed on as Axia partners. AVRA, Sonifex, Triple Audio, StreamS HiFi Audio and Wegner are the latest to join the Livewire network, bringing the total to 80.
