About Telos ISDN Talkshow Systems:

The Series 2101 and TWOx12 Talk Show Systems from Telos are the only multiline talk show systems that take advantage of the digital clarity of ISDN lines to deliver clean, clear talk segments that are free of the annoying crosstalk and inducted noise that plague analog telephone lines.


Series 2101, a powerful whole-plant telephone system designed for large studio complexes, joins computer intelligence and routing capabilities with ISDN PRI (Primary Rate Interface) telephone lines, allowing broadcasters to manage up to 96 callers using T1 lines and 120 callers using E1. Designed specifically for fastpaced talkshow production, Series 2101 controls as many as 32 studios in typical configurations. Improved line status signaling and Caller ID support combine with exclusive icon-based Status Symbol™ visual call management to give unparalleled control of the on-air environment.

Telos TWOx12 brings the power and elegance of the Series 2101 to the singlestudio setting. Talk show producers appreciate its large twelve-line call capacity, while hosts welcome the easy-to-understand Status Symbol icons. For added flexibility, TWOx12 can be configured to work with ISDN or analog (“POTS”) phone lines, or a combination of both.

Telos Systems, with headquarters located in Cleveland, Ohio, and offices in Baltimore, Maryland; San Diego, California; and Freising, Germany is a leading manufacturer of ISDN, digital network and telephone interface products for talk-show programming, call-in radio segments, teleconferencing, audio production, remote broadcasts, and intercom applications.
