The Telos Alliance®—leader in broadcast technology and parent company to Telos®, Omnia®, Axia®, 25-Seven®, Linear Acoustic®, and Minnetonka™—announced today that Sierra Automated Systems (SAS) has joined its growing family of Livewire® partners. SAS manufactures a complete product range of digital audio network routing, mixing, console control, and integrated intercom and talkback systems. SAS chose Livewire to interoperate with the growing Livewire ecosystem of more than 70,000 installed devices worldwide. SAS's full support of the Livewire protocol will allow its customers to send and receive audio with stream advertising, control, and program associated data throughout its entire audio network.
"In keeping with our philosophy of providing total system solutions, we wanted to add Livewire to our lineup to work with the numerous Livewire devices that are out there," says Al Salci, Co-Founder and Vice President of SAS. "We think things are going to eventually morph into one common standard, and that is AES67, which of course Telos Alliance initiated and spearheaded. We are excited to become a Livewire partner."
"We are thrilled to welcome SAS to our expanding community of Livewire partners," says Marty Sacks, VP of Sales, Support, and Marketing for Telos Systems. "SAS has a very loyal following and a great reputation. We are honored to make Livewire available to SAS users worldwide."
The Telos Alliance is the inventor of AoIP for broadcast, informing much of the early work on the AES67 standard. The technology in all Axia products is Livewire, an AoIP protocol that enables high-reliability, low-delay uncompressed digital audio over Ethernet, including audio, logic, control, and program associated data (PAD). Axia and the Telos Alliance are committed proponents of AoIP interoperability—first as charter, supporting members of the X192 Working Group that defined AES67, and now as founding members of the Media Networking Alliance, a group of prominent equipment manufacturers formed to actively promote the adoption and implementation of the AES67 standard.
Today, Axia mixing consoles, digital audio routers, broadcast intercom systems, and routing control software—along with other Telos brands and 85+ partners—are powering broadcast studios around the globe. For a complete list of Livewire partners, click here.
