Telos Systems is offering the Z/IP Mixer, a portable Zephyr/IP codec with mixer built in.
Aimed at the remote broadcast user, it adds a four-channel stereo mixer, Omnia processing and a road case to the Z/IP codec, which allows users to do low-delay remotes where cell or WiFi service is available. The manufacturer promotes the Z/IP’s ability to deliver reliable audio under varying network conditions.
Features of this new version include digital stereo mixer with four mic/line switchable inputs; selectable Omnia AGC/limiter processing presets; two local headphone mixes to monitor send and/or receive audio; and 24-bit A/D and D/A converters.
The system works directly with high-speed mobile phone data networks via an EVDO USB modem and offers a range of transmission bit rates, from 18 kbps to 256 kbps.
It supports UMTS and certain other wireless devices; it is compatible with Telos Zephyr Xstream (in Ethernet mode) and supports SIP, G.711, G.722, MPEG layer II.
