RADIO STUDIO EQUIPMENT DETAILS

Please review the following to determine your station’s technical needs. Our engineers will then provide the appropriate numbers for each option.

OPTION A: WFRD ISDN 1:
Contact us for the number. Telos System’s Xport supports MPEG AAC, AAC-LD and CT-aacPlus, Layer-2, Layer-3 and G.722 coding standards in POTS and ISDN formats.

OPTION B: WFRD ISDN 2:
Contact us for numbers. Telos Zephyr.

OPTION C: Telos Z/IP
The Telos Z/IP ONE combines RTP/UDP streaming capabilities with MPEG coding to deliver broadcast-quality audio over IP connections.  The ZIP/One is located at Telos’ SIP server; contact us for an address. However, we’ve had several occasions (mostly from overseas and/on Northern European Continent) where we were unable to connect. We have a default by direct: contact us for address, as an RTP push stream—the unit will respond on port 9151 with G.722 { your Bric (as an example) would ‘dial’ our address }. The unit is presently at 64kbps, AAC-ELD, stereo (medium to very good quality).  We can upgrade that easily at our end up to 320 or higher. This is quite successful with LuciLITE or /Pro. ZIP’s can connect.

OPTION D:  Full POTS modem
Comrex capabilities (Matrix) as well as the legacy field units Comrex Red Box & Blue Box. Contact us for the number.

OPTION E:
We also use and have LuciLive capabilities. Many of our contributors have the iPhone or Android app and do remotes from time to time back to Telos Z/IP One. Contact us for the address.

OPTION F:
ipDTL SIP connection capabilities. Contact us for ipDTL logon, (call in and we’ll open it up for acceptance). We have several BBC auto-answer connections already programmed into ipDTL.
