CommunicAsia 2018, 03: Telos Infinity IP Intercom at InfoComm

Award-winning Telos Infinity™ IP Intercom will be featured at InfoComm 2018, which is part of CommunicAsia 2018. This has been described as the AoIP solution that ‘changes everything’.

At booth # C713you will experience the first product in a new series of Telos Infinity solutions that provide infinite scalability and increased functionality in a simplified, cost effective, and more elegant form, for distributed IP network systems. 

More than just a talkback system, the new Telos Infinity IP Intercom provides convergence for voice communication and contribution audio on a single IT backbone employing the latest standards-based VoIP and Livewire+ AES67 AoIP protocols. By eliminating the central matrix, it is possible to create a dynamic, self-healing system, built on a system of distributed DSP. This design provides more capacity, as the system grows, eliminating previous concerns about running out of ports on a matrix. And, as an AoIP-based system, it enjoys the expected and significant reduction in the necessary cabling and interconnections, and creates an attractive value proposition that can be more easily presented to the corner office.

“Telos Infinity IP Intercom was first introduced to serve the needs of television and radio broadcasters requiring high channel volume and flexible configuration on the fly”, said John Schur, President, TV Solutions Group. “That same scalability and versatility makes Infinity ideal for non-broadcast environments as well, including education, security, houses of worship, corporate applications, live events, sports, theatre, and entertainment,” he added.

Hardware includes rack-mounted Intercom Master Panels and Master Expansion Panels, Master Desktop Stations, and wired Dual Channel Partyline Beltpacks. The Telos Infinity Dashboard software provides access to any networked endpoint.

Because Telos Infinity IP Intercom natively supports Livewire+ AES67, it seamlessly connects with the full line of Telos AoIP products, as well as those from other supporting manufacturers, making for easy integration into existing analogue, AES, SDI, and MADI environments.
