Cleveland, OH (March 26, 2015)—The Telos Alliance has announced the addition of five new Axia Partners, bringing the total of Axia Audio Livewire AoIP network-compliant manufacturers to over 80.
“Broadcasters are all clamoring for interoperation. That’s why Axia Livewire is so popular,” says Axia marketing manager Clark Novak. “Axia clients love their ability to immediately connect to a huge ecosystem of software and hardware from over 80 Axia Partners—codecs, audio processors, phone systems, satellite downlinks, workstations and more, that just plug in and work. This isn’t in some theoretical future; it’s right now. No other AoIP network has this many connections.”
Reportedly, more than 5,500 radio studios are equipped with Axia AoIP networks, and over 60,000 devices now in the field connect via Livewire networking technology, developed by Axia parent Telos Systems. Livewire utilizes standard Ethernet to route and share audio and logic throughout broadcast plants. Livewire is also AES67-compliant.
The new Axia Partners include AVRA, Sonifex, Triple Audio, StreamS HiFi Audio and Wegener.
Florida-based AVRA authors radio streaming software with video server capabilities, enabling audiences to view broadcaster-provided visual content while listening to a radio station’s streaming channel on various devices.
Sonifex, a U.K. manufacturer of broadcast hardware and software, acquired Australian company Innes Corp. in 2014 and is distributing their Flashlog logging software bundled with the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows.
Triple Audio of Bilthoven, Nederlands offers a variety of system integration and other services to broadcasters.
StreamS HiFi Audio from Modulation Index provides broadcasters with software tools that work with the Livewire IP-Audio Driver for Windows, originating high-quality AAC-LC/HE Audio streams for the internet, as well as managing and synchronizing Program Associated Data.
Wegener, an international maker of products and systems for complex video and audio networks, has become an Axia Hardware Partner under the Livewire Limitless License (L3) Program. The initiative allows manufacturers to build Livewire interfaces into as many hardware products as they like, with no per-unit license fee.
