InfoComm 2018: Telos Alliance Showcases Group Audio Solutions With Infinity IP Intercom
To showcase their AoIP solutions to end users, system integrators, and A&Es within the professional audio and video production marketplace, the Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group is featuring their Telos Infinity IP Intercom at InfoComm 2018 (booth # C713). This is the first product in a new series of Telos Infinity solutions that provide infinite scalability and increased functionality in a simplified, cost-effective, and more elegant form for distributed IP network systems.
The Telos Infinity IP Intercom converges voice communication and contribution audio on a single IT backbone employing the latest standards-based VoIP and Livewire+ AES67 AoIP protocols. By eliminating the central matrix, it is possible to create a dynamic, self-healing system built on a system of distributed DSP. This design provides more capacity as the system grows — eliminating previous concerns about running out of ports on a matrix. And, as an AoIP-based system, it enjoys the expected and significant reduction in the necessary cabling and interconnections and creates an attractive value proposition that can be more easily presented to the corner office.
“Telos Infinity IP Intercom was first introduced to serve the needs of television and radio broadcasters requiring high channel volume and flexible configuration on the fly”, says John Schur, President, TV Solutions Group. “That same scalability and versatility makes Infinity ideal for non-broadcast environments as well, including education, security, houses of worship, corporate applications, live events, sports, theater, and entertainment”.
Hardware includes rack-mounted Intercom Master Panels and Master Expansion Panels, Master Desktop Stations, and wired Dual Channel Partyline Beltpacks. The Telos Infinity Dashboard software provides access to any networked endpoint.
Because Telos Infinity IP Intercom natively supports Livewire+ AES67, it seamlessly connects with the full line of Telos AoIP products as well as those from other supporting manufacturers — making for easy integration into existing analog, AES, SDI, and MADI environments.
