AudioTools Server is also a VST plug-in host, enabling third-party plug-ins as part of an overall AudioTools Server workflow.
File-Based Workflow and Next Generation Audio Support
With the requirements for broadcasters’ talent and editorial staff getting more and more difficult, automating as many file-based audio processes as possible makes good business sense. Broadcasters will need to support Dolby Atmos® and MPEG-H content—as well as your existing deliverables requirements—but tools that can do it all are scarce. AudioTools Server meets broadcasters’ existing needs to automate workflows for file-based loudness management, encoding/decoding, QC, and more, as well as easily adding Next Generation Audio support to those workflows.
Telos VXs Virtual VoIP System for Television
Powerful and adaptable Voice over IP virtualized system for broadcast and live TV production
Telos Alliance first introduced broadcasters to the benefits of VoIP a decade ago, with our first VoIP phone system, Telos VX®. VX replaced racks of phone couplers, contribution hybrids, and engineering coordination lines with a single hardware VoIP Engine. Now, Telos VXs is here to help broadcasters reap the benefits of true virtualization as they adapt to changing broadcast workflows, all while making it easier for remote teams to tap into production and engineering partylines.
From remote IFBs to audience call-ins, VXs can run anywhere from one or two lines in a small studio to the on-air phones for your entire plant, giving you incredible operational power, adaptable workflows, and superior audio quality.
Production facility design is evolving, moving away from dedicated hardware connected to centralized router frames to flexible SMPTE 2110 media networks with software-based workflows. VXs software can be deployed on shared servers in the centralized data center or in cloud instances. These deployment options enable the benefits of true virtualization, such as easier facility-wide upgrades, automated deployment, and more, without site visits. Broadcasters can scale VXs in size from a single contribution audio line to a facility-wide IFB system to a multi-facility system, meeting the exact needs and budget of the facility now, with the ability to upgrade at any time with no penalty.
For decades, phone-based IFB and comms have been neglected in video production facilities. Instead of treating these critical communication paths as invisible background connections, VXs allows these assets to be brought to the forefront for detailed monitoring and control via customizable Pathfinder HTML-5 user panels for applications such as OB Truck to HQ Comms.
Standards-Based for Easy Connectivity
Support for SMPTE-2110 and AES67 environments brings a new level of compatibility and flexibility to VXs, allowing for direct integration with intercom systems, audio consoles, and other production systems over existing multicast media networks. Support for SAP advertisement means VX smoothly integrates alongside AES67-enabled Dante® devices, as well.
When combined with the Telos Infinity™ IP Intercom system, the drag-and-drop Infinity Dashboard interface allows remote IFBs and engineering coordination lines to be centrally configured, added to partylines and groups, and assigned to Infinity IP Intercom panels quickly.
For those without an IP media infrastructure, Telos Alliance AoIP Audio Nodes provide high-density AES3, SDI, and analog I/O to integrate with any console or intercom system now while providing an upgrade path to direct AoIP connectivity as your facility evolves in the future.
Don’t have IP-Audio networking yet? VX will work with all console and intercom brands, networked or not, using Telos Alliance Nodes with AES3, SDI, and analog I/O, as well as GPIO.
The diagram above shows an example system with a non-AoIP mixer and intercom system using a Telos Alliance AES xNode and SDI Node.
Support for Livewire+™ AES67, AES67, and SMPTE 2110-30 environments brings a new level of compatibility and flexibility to VX VoIP systems. Support for AES67 gives broadcasters the capability of integrating VX into any AES67 environment or compatible SMPTE 2110-30 environments. Support for SAP advertisement means VX smoothly integrates alongside AES67-enabled Dante® devices.
The diagram above shows an example system consisting of a Livewire+ audio console and Telos Infinity® IP Intercom.
When combined with Axia® Pathfinder™ Core PRO Broadcast Controller, you can create touchscreen-friendly custom HTML-5 panels to monitor and control every aspect of the VX system from any web browser. Comms managers and producers can use panels to manage all the IFB, contribution, and tech coordination lines in the facility. Gone are the days of reporters calling in to the wrong IFB and missing their live shot. With an HTML-5 control panel, producers can see the status and caller ID of each IFB line and even have the ability to call the reporter directly.
Every call gets 5th-generation audio processing, packed full of technology engineered to extract the cleanest, clearest caller audio from any phone line—even noisy cellular calls. VXs makes TV talents’ in-ear and comms feeds more intelligible as well. It includes Smart AGC coupled with Telos’ three-band adaptive Digital Dynamic EQ, a three-band adaptive spectral processor, noise gating, and Acoustic Echo Cancellation.
HD voice calls will benefit from VX’s native support of the G.722 codec, instantly improving speech quality.
TelosCare™ PLUS Customer Care
We know that your VX is just one piece of the telephony puzzle, which may include your VoIP provider, PBX vendor, IT team, network security team, and more. We love to leverage our combined centuries of telephony experience to serve as your trusted VoIP ninjas and help you complete and maintain your telephony puzzle for years to come. TelosCare PLUS gives you the one-stop service and support you need long after the sale, going far beyond basic support and troubleshooting with proactive, holistic service and membership perks.
Telos VXs Virtual VoIP System for Radio
Powerful and adaptable Virtual Voice over IP system for broadcast with legendary Telos high-performance audio.
Telos Alliance® introduced broadcasters to the benefits of VoIP a decade ago with VX, the world’s first VoIP talkshow system, in a hardware appliance. Now, Telos VXs is here to help broadcasters reap the benefits of true virtualization as they adapt to changing broadcast workflows and operations, all while making it easier for teams to produce great-sounding and compelling content.
Legendary Telos Audio Quality
Using VoIP, VXs combines modern networking with the power of digital signal processing developed by Telos over the past three decades. Every call gets fifth-generation audio processing packed full of technology engineered to extract the cleanest, clearest caller audio from any phone line—even noisy cellular calls.
VXs includes Smart AGC coupled with our famous three-band adaptive Digital Dynamic EQ, a three-band adaptive spectral processor, and noise gating. Call-ducking and host override are part of the VX toolkit as well. Users can conference multiple lines with superior clarity and fidelity. Send audio gets its own sweetening with an AGC, limiter, and Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) technology that eliminates open-mic feedback.
And if you choose to use compatible telco services, calls from mobile handsets with SIP clients, HD capable telephone sets, and PC apps will benefit from VXs’s native support of the G.722 codec, instantly improving caller speech quality.
Standards-Based for Easy Connectivity
Telos VXs systems are “facility-wide” broadcast phone products. That means multiple studios, multiple stations, multiple shows—with minimal hardware requirements. Telco is delivered via IP from your SIP PBX, hosted VoIP service, or UCaaS provider. For carrier-grade reliability and redundancy, a dedicated SIP trunk circuit can be integrated via a Telos-configured Asterisk-based PBX; legacy circuits such as POTS, ISDN, or T1 can be integrated in the same way. Once connected, all telecom and audio connectivity flows via Ethernet.
Don’t have IP-Audio networking yet? VXs will work with all console brands, networked or not, using Telos Alliance xNodes and the VXs Call Controller drop-in controller for your console. xNodes, like the Telos Alliance Mixed Signal Node, break out audio into analog and digital formats, along with GPIO logic commands. The diagram below shows a typical studio with an analog mixer, using a Telos Alliance Mixed Signal xNode to connect to the console and other broadcast equipment.
Installing a VXs VoIP system in facilities already powered by Livewire+™ AES67 networks requires even less time and hardware. Your new VXs phone system will plug right in for seamless integration.
Additionally, support for AES67 gives broadcasters the capability of integrating VXs into any AES67 environment or compatible SMPTE 2110-30 environments. With plug-and-play connectivity, you can network multiple channels of audio with any manufacturer’s AES67- compliant hardware. Support for SAP advertisement means VXs smoothly integrates alongside AES67- enabled Dante® devices.
When combined with call management software, producers and talent can screen and air calls from anywhere with a computer and a solid internet connection. Producers can identify repeat or unwanted callers and enter information about the call, such as topic and mood. This information is available to other production staff and talent in real-time. Various software options are available from Telos Alliance partners.
Use with Axia® Pathfinder™ Core PRO
For more custom needs, Axia® Pathfinder™ Core PRO can monitor, control, and display all aspects of your VXs system. This enables customized solutions such as drag-and-drop construction of custom control panels (pictured), timed Show changes based on studio schedules, or even API translation between third-party systems to display caller information or control lines. The possibilities are endless.

With Aqua TrakStak, the new track is appended to your asset at up to 80 times real-time, without the need to re-ingest the video.
Initially the new track is aligned to the video using the timecode to synchronise. Any adjustment to the track alignment is made easily in the intuitive user interface – at the click of the mouse you can nudge the track, frame by frame, either backwards or forwards to ensure accurate lip sync correction.
Tracks can be re-ordered at any time, so it really doesn’t matter which track arrives first. Using a powerful 3rd party integration with Telestreams Vidchecker the QC of a full asset can now be fully automated, adding notes to the media timeline and ensuring there are no hold ups in the workflow. TrakStak is ideal for Quality Insurance, multi-language broadcasting and audio and subtitle reviewing.

VSNExplorer MAM has also been integrated with the Artificial Intelligence systems of IBM, Google, Microsoft Azure and Etiqmedia for automatic metadata detection and content cataloging. This systems can also be “trained” (known as machine learning) to automatically detect informacion adapted to user’s needs, such as people first unknown to the system who will be automatically recognized from that moment on. Apart from facial recognition and objects analysis, thanks to AI systems VSNExplorer MAM can also perform advanced searches relying on metadata, automatic speech-to-text, translation and subtitling, advanced Cloud transcoding to different formats or even help on content moderation processes through the detection of sensitive or adult content, among others.
VSNExplorer MAM now includes Wedit, the web video editor integrated within VSNExplorer platform, to boost collaborative work and increase efficiency in media management and video editing through its cloud-based functionalities, whether assets are stored in deep archive, nearline or online files. 100% HTML5, Wedit allows journalists and editors to easily locate and edit media files within a single interface, without necessary changing to an NLE.
- Open and scalable architecture: It easily integrates with existing or newly installed third-party systems, becoming the "orchestra conductor" of all workflows and ensuring a seamless transfer of files and information between systems. Its scalability allows the system to grow as the business grows, reducing the risk of quick replacement or obsolescence in the future.
- Ingest & Transcoding: VSNExplorer MAM organizes and manages all the media and content of a company, controlling all files from the ingest. Users can change the files' format (transcoding) depending on their needs and the system that they plan to use later, during the production, editing, delivery and broadcast or publishing of content.
- Advanced metadata structures: Create complex custom metadata structures, ideal for the most demanding needs in media cataloging and management. The hierarchy of areas and classes of metadata with inheritable properties allows for a totally versatile system, boosting collaborative work between several departments or multiple companies.
- Segment and layer cataloging: Segment cataloging allows for fast and easy access to relevant parts of a media file. This is specially useful for creating sport event highlights, press conferences, automatic transcriptions, quality check results, etc. Moreover, layer cataloging (strata logging), allows you to assign different thematic metadata layers (technical, documentation, marketing, etc.) to the same asset.
- Advanced content searches: For any media and broadcast company, it is essential to locate in a fast and easy way all its media assets. VSNExplorer MAM offers a tool for quick and advanced searching, which allows users to save time and to access any asset whenever is needed. You can also classify your content in different areas and add metadata layers depending on the type of asset.
- Thesaurus management: The correct integration and management of a thesaurus is essential for the archivists’ work. Create a list of standard terms for different usages to achieve terminological coherence when cataloging your content. In addition, the system allows for the validation of the proposed terms by the users depending on their permisssions.
Finally, VSNExplorer MAM is completely integrated with the main social media platforms, such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, allowing users to share content directly from their MAM interface, automatically converting media files into MP4 and completing the metadata required by these platforms with the metadata detected from each media file.
Latest product update (09/2020): The VSNExplorer platform has a new functionality for users to create dashboards from which to operate all the tools and functionalities of the system in a centralized way. Each user can create their own control and operation panels from the top menu of VSNExplorer and easily customize them by combining different widgets that allow to use and operate all the tools and functions of the VSNExplorer system from the panel itself and without having to open each one of them.
TMD’s Media Portal has been developed to provide a standardised method of receiving content. It is designed to make it simpler for media organisations to manage the process of receiving content, along with making it easier and more efficient for studios and third-party collaborators to deliver content to them. Media Portal provides an intuitive solution to transfer media content, with no technical knowledge required. This is preferable to many other methods of transferring content, where there may be limitations on file sizes and formats as well as security challenges.
With Mediaflex Media Portal, all that is required is for suppliers to access the web address of the organisation’s portal, which could be on the public internet. Once logged in the user is immediately presented with what media content they need to transfer to the Mediaflex platform. The first screen the user sees is a hierarchical list of media content grouped by Series, Season, Episode and Versions, all ordered by deadline date.
Once uploaded, the video content then goes through an initial set of pre-configured ingest technical QC processes, making it easy to see which files have been successfully uploaded, passed the initial technical checks and are ready to send onto the next stages of the content supply chain processes. Any number of users can upload at the same time from different user accounts located across multiple locations around the world. Configurable metadata fields are completed by the user at the same time, enabling discoverability and searchability of the content once it is enters Mediaflex as a media item.
Media Portal includes comprehensive logging of events including capturing the details of all files uploaded, sent and deleted. The interface is configurable for each media organisation, and intuitively provides support information and support availability based on the location of the user.
The Mediaflex Video Browser is an intuitive web-based UI, enabling the viewing of all Parliamentary sessions in legislature chambers and meeting rooms, as well as recordings from studios and external locations. Where recordings are from the chambers, during and after the sessions, senators and senate aides and any authorised personnel can view the recordings and access any section of the clips in near real-time as they are being recorded. Selected clips can be added to a workflow, which makes the clip recordings available to senators and staff for use in their parliamentary duties.
The Video Browser is configurable for access rights. It can be set to only be accessed via a login screen from an authorised network, so it is only available to approved users, or set to have open access if desired.
Recorded content is searchable by configurable criteria, including date, what is currently being recorded, by location, and by keyword (the content of each recorded session). All sessions are recorded to a preservation format and a browse format, with the browse format being configurable including live frame-accurate HLS with closed captions. A thumbnail of the recording and the close captions can also be viewed. The Video Browser reads the captions with corresponding timecodes from the database and/or a file. It supports captions in any language, and in any number of languages.
A recording may be many hours long. Video Browser enables the user to select a single clip from the recording, several short clips as well as single or multiple clips from multiple recordings. The user is the able to see the selected clips in a timeline, which can then be added to a workflow.
The consumption of content continues to accelerate on an upwards path and the need to efficiently acquire, manage and deliver across the entire content supply chain becomes ever more compelling.
To achieve optimum performance we need to consider following a digital transformation strategy that builds on the four pillars of the content supply chain:
- Content – in all its forms, digital and physical, video, audio, graphics, captions, subtitles, scripts and documents, as well as all the associated and additional metadata
- Workflow – Nothing happens to content without direction, as simple or complex as needed. Business processes, logic and decisions must be performed to create cohesive and efficient workflows, taking into account both manual, and the increasing amount of automated tasks
- Resources – Workflows don’t happen without somebody or something managing and orchestrating them, whether it be a person and/or technology
- Analytics – How do you know how well your operation is running and that you’ve implemented efficient working practices? Analytics. Being able to measure and manage the business across the above 3 pillars enables an organisation to automate elasticity in resource utilisation, to understand the metrics of its operation, how efficient they are and ultimately how the bottom line is affected by them.
Undertaking a strategy that creates tight integration of all 4 pillars will deliver significant benefits to the organisation. Maximising the benefit requires the implementation of an agile and flexible content supply chain solution, so implementing a business solution, such as Mediaflex-UMS (Unified Media Services), that embraces all 4 pillars will ultimately lead to a significantly more efficient operation.
From its concept, Mediaflex-UMS has been designed to integrate these 4 pillars and place clients in control of their content, metadata and the business processes across their content supply chains. Equally as important, it was designed to place our customers in control of the Mediaflex-UMS platform.
So often organisations find out the hard way that the implementation of a new system requires them to go back to the vendor and/or rely on technology experts to modify the code to cater for new business processes, or modify existing ones, as the business changes. This often leads to the question “Do I build or buy?”.
With Mediaflex-UMS you get the best of both worlds: buying a system that allows authorised personnel to use the tool-sets built into the system to design, modify and configure it to meet the ever-changing demands of the business as the consumption of media continues to change.
Fan engagement is sure to increase for broadcasters when they can deliver better, more vivid graphics resulting from the new integration between SMARTLIVE and Singular’s cloud-based technology for live graphic overlays. Graphics can be inserted into the SMARTLIVE auto-generated EDL, reviewed in the player and then burned in when the EDL is flattened. This major development gives broadcasters the capability to enhance storytelling by layering graphics on top of highlights.
SMARTLIVE has also incorporated AI Cloud technology that detects replays in LIVE feeds allowing the solution to automatically complete a story, action or highlight with action replays.
In addition, SMARTLIVE can now create sophisticated transitions between EDL segments, such as fade in/fade out, adding a dynamic element to highlights.
Tedial HYPER IMF
IMF allows broadcasters and content producers to streamline media processing and delivery procedures through componentized media management, eliminating the need to replicate media for each new version, thus optimizing storage and reducing expenses. Continuing their participation in the IMF User Group, Tedial’s HYPER IMF maintains its position as the singular end-to-end IMF workflow adding value to each customer’s workflow with unique and new features including Component-based assets with Multi-resolution MPEG-Dash Streaming and End-to-End IMF Workflows with 3rd Party Systems Integrations.
