Telos Systems is now shipping its new IP codec, Zephyr/IP, which is optimized for operation over the public Internet and mobile phone data services.
Telos-developed Agile Connection Technology (ACT) in the Zephyr/IP combines state-of-the-art loss detection and concealment with dynamic buffering and auto-varying bitrate functions. These continuously adapt to network conditions to help minimize the effects of packet loss, varying bandwidth and jitter.
Additionally, the Z/IP works directly with high-speed mobile phone data networks and features a PC Card slot that accepts standard mobile data cards.
The Z/IP also introduces AAC-ELD encoding, based on low-delay AAC. AAC-ELD delivers a high degree of fidelity at low bitrates, nearly inaudible loss concealment and auto bitrate and jitter tuning.
The Z/IP family comprises both a studio codec and a PC-based server that addresses firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) issues.
The device also has audio I/O via AES/EBU, analog and an Axia Livewire IP-Audio interface, studio-grade 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A converters, Ethernet and USB connections, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
