Popular IP codec adds more inputs, more features
25 March 2015, Cleveland Ohio, USA
Telos Systems, the world leader in broadcast audio codecs, makes its popular Z/IP ONE IP codec even more useful to broadcasters with the addition of AES/EBU audio capability, as well as a major software update with added features that make Z/IP ONE more capable than ever before.
A part of Telos’ famous Zephyr family of broadcast codecs, Z/IP ONE is the premiere IP codec for broadcasters desiring to transmit program-quality remote audio using public IP links. With its wide range of coding choices and support of flexible connections via WiFi, Symmetric RTP, N/ACIP compatibility, and Telos’ own sophisticated and powerful TSCP protocol, Z/IP ONE makes IP remotes easier and better-sounding than ever.
All Z/IP ONE codecs come with standard Livewire™ and analog I/O; now, broadcast professionals purchasing a new Z/IP ONE can add AES/EBU inputs for just $100.00 US MSRP.
“Thousands of broadcasters use Z/IP ONE codecs every day to ‘zip’ high-fidelity remote audio around the globe using ubiquitous IP connections,” says Marketing Manager Clark Novak. “When we asked them how we might make Z/IP ONE even better, they said ‘add AES/EBU’. So we did — and we added new usability features via our recent v2.0 software update as well, to help ensure that Z/IP ONE owners are using the most reliable, best-sounding IP codec available.”
The greatest improvement introduced in Z/IP ONE v2.0 software is even better overall audio quality, achieved by new DSP functions that further reduce Z/IP ONE’s THD numbers — already some of the industry’s lowest. Other enhancements include redundant audio inputs with automatic switching; improved support for smartphone and tablet remotes via the LUCI Live app, an updated, streamlined HTML interface, and optimized coding for reduced CPU load.
In addition to wired and WiFi capability with IPv6 support, Z/IP ONE also conforms to N/ACIP standards and works with compatible VoIP and SIP 2.0 devices. A comprehensive suite of codec choices include genuine Fraunhofer AAC algorithms, plus MPEG 4 AAC, MPEG 2 AAC, MPEG Layer 2, G.711 / G.722 codecs, and optional aptX® coding for broadcasters whose applications demand it. Telos’ complimentary, worldwide ZIP Server directory service simplifies connections to studios located behind NAT firewalls.
Visitors to NAB 2015 in Las Vegas can see and hear Z/IP ONE in action at the Telos Alliance display in the Central Hall, booth #C549.
