(click thumbnail)Use of the Internet is a growing and constantly changing practice for radio broadcasters. Porting radio over to mobile devices such as cell phones is even more of a novelty. Yet these practices will comprise a large segment of any profitable future for radio.
Tieline Technology, a manufacturer of codecs, offers the QoS Performance Engine. Latest editions include improved packet retention over IP and wireless 3G networks.
“The QoS Performance Engine responds to variable IP network conditions and significantly improves connection reliability over lossy 3G cell phone networks and the Internet,” said Darren Levy, international marketing manager.
“This is extremely useful because broadcasters are usually unable to buy quality of service over 3G networks, and it is difficult to obtain at most remote locations.”
The QoS engine also includes forward error correction and automated jitter buffering.
