New York, NY (October 22, 2019)—The Telos Alliance introduced updates and enhancements to its Infinity IP intercom platform at AES New York 2019 in the Javitz Convention Center and showed several new products in support of ATSC 3.0 and immersive television audio at the adjacent NAB NY show.
New additions to the Telos Infinity IP Intercom platform include Dashboard Advanced software, Infinity Link and new base models of the Master Panel and Desktop Station.
Dashboard Advanced software which includes System Zone and Scene support, off-line configuration, user rights administration, and support for directly connecting third-party AES67 streams including SAP and, in the future, NMOS nodes.
Telos Infinity Link provides connectivity for Infinity systems installed in remote locations by using embedded, versatile, speech-optimized OPUS codecs to convert WAN-side VoIP (including the Internet) to LAN-side Livewire+ AES67 networks. Infinity Link is available in the form of software licenses that can be added to any host Infinity Panel or Beltpack hardware, or by way of a dedicated higher density 1RU hardware gateway.
The new INF-MP-16B Intercom Master Panel Base Model and INF-DS-16B Intercom Master Desktop Station Base Model offer the same features as the INF-MP-16 Master Panel and INF-DS-16 Desktop Station hardware, respectively, but without the rear panel auxiliary audio I/O and GPIO connections.
Next door at NAB NY, the new Linear Acoustic LA-5300 offered all ATSC 3.0 audio-related functions in a single 1RU package, including support for SMPTE ST 2110-30 and -31 workflows. It provides loudness control via the Dolby Real-Time Loudness leveler (when encoding to AC-4) with upmixing from stereo to 5.1-channel audio via the new Linear Acoustic Upmax ISC algorithm.
Also on display were Linear Acoustic’s LA-5291 professional audio encoder, which provides decoding, encoding, and transcoding to and from PCM and select Dolby–coded formats for up to 16 audio channels for television broadcasters creating live content in Dolby Atmos.
The Linear Acoustic UPMAX ISC can upmix 2-, 3-, 5.1- and 7.1-channel audio to immersive audio formats including 5.1+4 and 7.1+4. Upmixing to legacy formats including 5.1- and 7.1-channel audio is also supported.
Linear Acoustic’s ARC 2-channel television processor is specifically designed for regions and applications that do not require support for multi-channel, coded audio.
