Telos has updated its IP-based VX broadcast Ethernet phone system with new features available at no extra cost. Stations using the industry's first built-for-broadcast VoIP (Voice over IP) phone system, the Telos VX, can now upgrade their systems with a no-cost software update downloadable from the Telos website.
Telos VX is the world's only scalable multi-studio, whole-plant telephone system designed specifically to meet the needs of radio and TV professionals. Using proven IP-Audio technology, VX users can move and share telephone lines between studios as needed, dynamically adding call capacity where it's needed most.
VX uses standard Ethernet to interconnect studios, so it can easily grow to accommodate new operational needs.
Two separate updates, one for the Telos VX engine (v1.1.1) and one for the VSet12 phone set (v1.1.0), are full of new features, including improved noise gate functions and caller ID handling with NTP integration.
It also has support for Nortel (News - Alert) CS1000 switches with syslog server support for VSet phones, which can now be configured and updated using Axia iProbe network management software.
Telos VX is incredibly powerful and flexible, and highly scalable – a powerful whole-plant broadcast phone system that’s also economical enough for stations with just two or three studios. It is actually powerful enough to manage clusters of up to 20 studios – but is surprisingly cost-effective for even single stations with more modest talk shows.
Sixteen hybrids can be on-the-air simultaneously, and conferencing capabilities support as many as 48 active calls at once. A selection of 12-, 6- and 1-line VSet phone controllers are also available, along with drop-in control modules for Axia IP-Audio mixing consoles.
VX connects to traditional POTS and ISDN telephone lines via standard Telco gateways. But it can also connect to VoIP-based PBX (News - Alert) systems and modern SIP Trunking services to take advantage of low-cost Internet-delivered phone services. Using standard Ethernet as its data backbone, VX significantly eases the cost of phone system installation, maintenance and cabling, while making it easier than ever for talent to take control of their phone system.
With VX, you can move and share lines between studios at the touch of a button.
VX is naturally scalable, capable of serving even the largest of facilities – while remaining surprisingly cost-effective for even single stations with more modest needs.
