Introducing Linear Acoustic® ARC Loudness Control Solution and Showcasing Latest Advancements to Telos Infinity® AoIP Intercom

Cleveland, OH (August 21, 2018) – The Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group (TVSG) will feature its latest innovations in audio technology for the broadcast market at IBC 2018 (stand 8.D47). The big news is the introduction of Linear Acoustic ARC (Automatic Realtime Control) – our next-generation television loudness processor, affordably packaged in a two program, 2-channel, 1RU product. With a user-definable loudness target, ARC is designed for simple set up and compliance with all global loudness standards and recommendations, including EBU R128 and ATSC A/85. Telos Alliance TVSG will also be showcasing the latest additions to its breakthrough Telos Infinity® AoIP Intercom solution, the award-winning product that converges voice communication and contribution audio on a single IT backbone and eliminates the traditional challenges associated with a central matrix.

“Last year at IBC, Telos Alliance TVSG turned the industry upside down with a completely different approach to the AoIP intercom market when we unveiled Telos Infinity. This year, we will showcase the latest improvements to Telos Infinity and share the successes of the initial installations,” said John Schur, President, TV Solutions Group. “But the big focus at IBC 2018 will be the introduction of our new Linear Acoustic ARC television loudness processor. Much of the world’s television audio is still stereo, and high-quality loudness control shouldn’t be out of reach in regions where multi-channel audio, high channel density, and coded audio aren’t needed or required. ARC offers the feature we believe matters the most: The best possible audio with the features you need at a price within reach of even the most cost-conscious customer.”

Linear Acoustic ARC delivers a “set and forget” LUFS output loudness target, selectable profiles for easy compliance with EBU R128 and ATSC A/85 recommendations, 2-channel (stereo) processing for two independent programs, our next-generation APTO™ processing, and more.

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 need for a conventional central matrix, the long-standing issue of running out of ports is eliminated. And because it is built on a system of distributed DSP, Telos Infinityis a dynamic, self-healing design that actually provides more capacity as the system grows. Because it is natively Livewire+ AES67 compliant, it enjoys all of the associated advantages including reduced cabling and lower cost of ownership. Telos Infinity hardware on display at IBC 2018 will include rack-mounted Intercom Master Panels and Master Expansion Panels, along with new Dashboard Software.

Telos Alliance TVSG staff will be on hand to demonstrate Linear Acoustic ARC, Telos Infinity, and the entire lineup of Telos Alliance products.
