TELOS INFINITY IP INTERCOM DASHBOARD SOFTWARE OVERVIEW
Telos Infinity Dashboard is unlike other Intercom system-management tools. By displaying the entire Intercom system as a single page view without the clutter of multiple tabs and embedded menus, the operator can navigate quickly, and within minutes take control to create or manage a working IP Intercom. Much more than a simple configuration tool, Dashboard also manages all hardware and software elements within the system, including software and firmware updates, and monitors network performance and fault logging.
Telos Infinity Dashboard is available in two forms, Dashboard Application and Dashboard Server, each providing the same advanced functionality, but in versions that suit either single or multiple user workflows.
Infinity Dashboard Server
For medium to large sized fixed installations, the optional Telos Infinity Dashboard Server software represents an optimized configuration and system management tool with an extended feature set to unlock the full potential of the multi-award-winning Telos Infinity matrix-free IP Intercom System.
Dashboard Server is installed on either single or dual servers (coming soon) and constantly monitors the Telos Infinity Intercom network as well as any other connected AES67 devices, stream sources and destinations. User Clients connect to the Server Host via any HTML5 compatible web browser using a suitable connected device including PCs, tablets and mobile devices.
Dashboard Server can be used for all system configuration, from initial set up to ‘on the fly’ changes during live operation. However, Dashboard Server does not need to run constantly for Infinity to function normally (although it is highly recommended).
Additional features like System Zone and Scene support enable the user to define dedicated system views of specific components and quickly create snapshots (Scenes) for different productions and applications. Tailored access to specific Zones and Scenes as well as offline configuration modes are all protected by centrally managed user rights administration, ensuring that operators at all levels have restricted access to the resources that they need. Zones and Scenes can be edited, cloned and recalled both in Live and Offline modes.
Features in the latest version of Dashboard Server include ISO key support, advanced VOX Detection with noise gating, redundant Ethernet support per SMPTE ST 2022-7 and Bonded Failover modes, and alerts when device firmware is out of date.
Critical for use within the wider Audio over IP ecosystem, Dashboard Server supports SAP for AES67 discovery and advertisement enabling a direct connection of third-party AES67 streams including SAP for Dante and future NMOS modes.
Telos Infinity users have the option to purchase either single or dual server versions of Dashboard Server, each including Systems Administrator login licenses. Further logins for additional clients can be purchased. There is no limit to the number of simultaneous users who can be connected to Dashboard Server.
Infinity Dashboard Application
The single-user application of the Dashboard license is designed for use with smaller systems of up to 24 devices where multiple simultaneous users and dedicated server management is not required. It is equipped with the same comprehensive feature set as Dashboard Server, but runs on a dedicated PC as an application.
Dashboard Application allows users to create unlimited Groups, Partylines, and IFBs, drag-and-drop functions directly onto Panel and Beltpack keys in real-time, and manage AoIP sources and destinations as though they are physical ports on a virtualized Intercom matrix. Remote control of Panels, Desktop Stations, and Beltpacks is now possible via the web interface for all Infinity systems.
