Tieline Technology joined the Audio-via-IP Experts Group as a technology provider advising on the interoperability of audio codecs when broadcasting over IP.
Tieline will collaborate with other group members including Orban/CRL, Mayah Communications and AETA on interoperability when developing new audio-over-IP enhancements.
“This move reinforces our belief that codec manufacturers need to collaborate, to make it easier for broadcasters to evolve from existing circuit-switched infrastructure into new audio-over-IP technologies,” said Tieline International Marketing Manager Darren Levy.
“As broadcasters are now being forced to migrate to IP networks, they are looking to the EBU and manufacturers to establish a global standard for reliable broadcasting over IP networks.”
Tieline says it has complied with specifications for IP compatibility released by the EBU in 2007 and successfully tested its codecs with a number of European codec manufacturers, including its interoperability over IP using SIP, which makes it easy for broadcasters to connect over IP without having to acquire dedicated IP addresses.
The European Broadcasting Union this fall published its recommendations for interoperability between audio-over-IP equipment; see RW Online story here.
