Virtual Radio

Virtual Radio is the future, and the future is here! Audio over IP (AoIP) has become the standard for broadcast facilities, allowing broadcast plants to be more powerful, less expensive to buy and maintain, and faster to build. In a neverending effort to optimize workflows, broadcasters want to take advantage of what AoIP enables next: the ability to control content creation virtually. They now get to see and control their gear via optimized graphical user interfaces, no matter where they are—in the studio or on remote. With Virtual Radio control, they can put themselves on the air from anywhere!

Telos Alliance was the first to pioneer true virtual radio software with its Axia Soft Surface many years ago. Now the multi-award winning Axia IP-Tablet Virtual Radio Software is allowing broadcasters to create more efficient, infinitely customizable workflows using software modules designed for gear from Omnia, Axia, Telos, HTML5-enabled partners and more.

Please check out our virtual radio products listed below, our AoIP solutions page, and contact your dealer to learn more about creating your virtual studio, whether it's a completely virtual studio with no physical surfaces or a virtual/physical hybrid, Telos Alliance can get you on the path to the future.
