Introducing Telos VX

World’s first VoIP Talkshow System will bow at NAB

Cleveland, OH —Telos Systems has announced that they will premier the world’s first VoIP Talkshow System for broadcasters, the multi-studio Telos VX, at the 2010 NAB Convention in Las Vegas.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology is the basis for the Telos VX system, which uses Ethernet as its network backbone — a powerful yet simple way to share phone lines among studios and connect system components. VX uses standard SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) and RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) protocols, so it works with VoIP-based PBX or SIP-trunking Telco service to direct up to 80 lines of phone traffic. more

Barix Audio over IP Devices Enable Centralized Monitoring for Iowa DOT’s Interstate Radio Broadcasts

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, November 17, 2009 — Barix AG, a pioneer in IP-based audio, intercom, control, and monitoring, announces that the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) is using a Barix Audio over IP solution to monitor its highway traffic updates now being broadcast to interstate commuters around Iowa.

Iowa DOT operates “Highway Advisor Radio,” an information channel transmitted with eight low-power AM and FM transmitters distributed around the state. A Barix Instreamer 100 encoder is connected to a radio receiver at each remote broadcast location to capture the on-air signal and stream it over the DOT’s internal network. Iowa DOT employees can access the streams using their PCs to confirm that the broadcasts are going out over the air and commuters are receiving the broadcasts with clarity.

DataNab, an IP systems programmer and Barix reseller, provided concept, configuration services and technical assistance with the development of a central webpage to allow Iowa DOT staff to listen to the broadcasts. Employees can access any of the eight Instreamers by simply clicking on a link that triggers an embedded media player to pull the feed from the specified Instreamer. The feed is then played out in real time over the speakers of the employee’s workstation. more
