Excellence in Broadcast

New from Tieline in 2019

At IBC2019, leading audio codec manufacturer Tieline unveiled the new Gateway IP audio codec, which is a compact and powerful multichannel IP audio transport solution for radio broadcasters. The Gateway streams up to 16 IP audio channels with support for AES67, AES3 and analogue I/O as standard.

Featuring Tieline’s revolutionary SmartStream PLUS redundant streaming and Fuse-IP data aggregation technologies, the Gateway heralds a new era in multichannel IP codec streaming.

“The new Gateway codec delivers up to 16 mono channels or 8 stereo streams of IP audio in 1RU to increase efficiency and reduce rack space requirements,” said Charlie Gawley, Tieline’s VP Sales APAC/EMEA. “The Tieline Gateway interfaces with legacy analogue and AES/EBU sources, as well as newer broadcast plants with AES67 IP audio infrastructure. An optional WheatNet-IP interface will also be available.”

Tieline Gateway is perfect for STL, SSL and audio distribution applications, as well as managing multiple incoming remotes at the studio. Its feature-rich and compact design is interoperable with all Tieline IP codecs and compatible over SIP with all EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326 and 3368 compliant codecs and devices.

Configurable through an embedded HTML5 Toolbox Web-GUI interface, the Gateway can also interface with the TieLink Traversal Server for simpler connections and is fully controllable using Tieline’s Cloud Codec Controller.

Tieline has also announced the official release of the Cloud Codec Controller software tool. The Controller is designed to manage an entire fleet of Tieline codecs remotely, and allows engineers to configure, connect and monitor all remote codecs from the studio. 

“Remote control is a powerful tool for broadcasters and Tieline’s Cloud Codec Controller delivers a simple user interface to control all functions of a remote codec from the studio, at home, or anywhere they have an internet connection,” said Charlie Gawley, Tieline’s VP Sales APAC & EMEA.

“The Cloud Codec Controller integrates Tieserver and the latest cloud computing technologies to deliver secure real-time monitoring and remote control of all your ViA, Merlin, Genie and Bridge-IT codecs, as well as smartphones using Report-IT Enterprise.”

Tieline offers two versions of licensing for the Cloud Codec Controller:

A Private Network License allows monitoring and management of an unlimited number of codecs over a private network for a low one-time fee.

A Public Internet License allows monitoring and management of codecs over the public internet using Codec Client Licenses available as an annual subscription in packs of 10. This license also includes the features of a Private Network License.
