Telos Alliance Presents Sessions on Audio Processing and Broadcast Telephony at PREC and NAB 2017
LAS VEGAS, NV (BOOTH #N7724 & #SU2321) / CLEVELAND, OH – 13 April 2017
The Telos Alliance®—innovator in broadcast radio and TV technology and parent company to Telos®, Omnia®, Axia®, 25-Seven®, Linear Acoustic®, and Minnetonka™—announced today that it will be heading sessions on audio processing and efficient talkshow workflows at 2017 PREC (Public Radio Engineering Conference) and NAB 2017, in addition to the AES67/AoIP-themed sessions it announced late last month.
"At NAB, we'll have a huge presence both on the show floor and through education on key broadcast technologies via seven different sessions across NAB, PREC, and IABM," says Marty Sacks, VP of Sales, Support and Marketing for Telos Alliance. "The Telos Alliance participates in so many of these sessions to share—with the industry we care so deeply for—what we've learned through our ongoing research and development and considerable field experience."

For some years, clever engineers have accommodated on-air talent’s nomadic tendencies, allowing them to host their shows from home, on the road, or even from exotic venues. Now, the “talent portability” application of SIP, VoIP, and other protocols is positively disrupting content creation workflows. In addition to the talent contributing from almost anywhere, now the call screener, producer, and even the originating studio can be nearly wherever convenience or necessity dictate. While this has always been possible, now it’s practical and even advantageous. Telecom technologies like SIP/VoIP are becoming more ubiquitous and less mysterious. Along with fast internet and VPNs, they not only enable flexible workflows, they offer alternatives to single-studio or expensive remote solutions. Moreover, cloud services create easier, secure connections among talent, producers, and callers. This presentation—led by Telos Alliance's Director of Multimedia Marketing Kirk Harnack and Project Manager Joe Talbot—demonstrates some clever implementations in use now, as well as previews strategies and techniques for achieving efficient and effective talkshow workflows.

The FM baseband or multiplex signal has long been understood as a one-dimensional construct. As such, the audio processors and stereo generators that create and manage this complex signal have always worked in the same plane as the resulting stereo baseband feed. New thinking about generating the FM multiplex signal is bringing better utilization of a broadcaster's FM transmission spectrum. The result is more loudness without using any more audio processing or audio clipping. This technology—already on-air at hundreds of FM radio stations—offers the unique benefit that quality-minded broadcasters have sought for decades, including: more loudness without more audio processing; a bigger audio impression without any added fatigue or distortion; and a measurably stronger audio signal for listeners while maintaining the exact same transmitted modulation reading. This presentation, led by audio processing legend Hans van Zutphen, demonstrates the Input and Output signals, showing how one, two, or three new FM stereo multiplex generation techniques may be combined. The result is a loudness increase of one to three decibels. These techniques work on any type of program material from spoken word and fine arts to already dense, modern commercial music.
