Telos Systems is now shipping Zephyr/IP, an IP codec for operation over the Internet and mobile phone data services.
It uses Agile Connection Technology, which combines loss detection and concealment with dynamic buffering and auto-varying bitrate functions, to adapt to network conditions, minimizing effects of packet loss, varying bandwidth and jitter.
Z/IP works with high-speed mobile phone data networks; a PC Card slot accepts standard mobile data cards.
The system also includes AAC-ELD, a codec based on low-delay AAC that delivers audio for two-way IP applications over non-controlled networks. It offers fidelity at low bitrates, loss concealment and auto bitrate and jitter tuning.
Highlights include WiFi connectivity, transmission bitrates from 18 kbps to 256 kbps, VGA screen that displays network conditions in a color-coded graphics format; 24 bit A/D and D/A converters; and Web server for remote configuration and remote control.
