Axia and Telos Systems share one of the largest R&D teams in the broadcast industry, and are responsible for many innovations and technology breakthroughs. Here you'll find White Papers and PowerPoints related to Axia technology and IP-Audio.
When we introduced AoIP to broadcasters in 2003, many didn't know what to make of it, or why it should matter. The intervening years have addresed those questions in spades! But, as Axia's Greg Shay explains in this paper delivered to the Audio Engineering Society in 2013, the technology itself isn't as important as the results. In his paper, Greg explains the significance of the AoIP "ecosystem", with an eye toward the AES67 standard and future developments.
Digital audio networking is here to stay. It is the state of the art, and it is the future. But with which standard? Today there are multiple competing systems, and work on a compatibility standard is underway. What should broadcasters do in the meantime to get ‘over the hump’ of these next few years? Greg Shay, The Telos Alliance's Director of Technology, lays out some ideas in this White Paper presented at NAB 2013.
In 2012, we celebrated a decade since the first public demonstration of AoIP. Does that seem too long a time? It’s not — although officially revealed a year later in 2003, Livewire actually debuted at NAB in 2002. Sitting hidden inside Telos display furniture, it was secretly powering the demo of our SmartSurface mixing console. So it seems appropriate that we look back on how AoIP began and evolved, see where it has taken us today, and maybe take a peek into the future. (Originally presented in NOW! 2012.)
Together with Ethernet for transport, Audio over IP (AoIP) is driving a revolution in audio studio design, replacing traditional purpose-built mixers, routers and switchers with an architecture that's more computer-friendly, more scalable, faster to install and future-proof. At the same time, Voice Over IP (VoIP) telephone switches are replacing old-style PBXs. VoIP phone systems and AoIP studio networks can be tightly interconnected, creating numerous benefits with regard to ease of installation and support of desirable features. Find out more in this 2010 NAB White Paper presented by Steve Church and Michael Dosch.
