Australian broadcaster Macquarie Southern Cross Media has purchased 43 IP audio codecs from Australia-based codec maker Tieline.
The codecs will perform STL and remote broadcast duties.
Tieline’s Australasian Business Development Executive Charlie Gawley said of the sale: “Across the Macquarie Southern Cross Media network Tieline G3 IP codecs will be used to broadcast a wide range of different programming … from IP STLs to outside broadcasts, the network content will include music, sports and sponsorship broadcasts as well as news and current affairs coverage.”
A similar deal has been brokered with Australia’s Grant Broadcasters, a regional radio network. Grant purchased 42 IP codecs, which will perform STL and remote broadcast duties.
Grant Broadcasters Group Engineering Manager John Sandles noted Tieline’s automatic packet loss and jitter management and local Australian engineering support.
