The Most Powerful DSP-Based 1RU IP Codec
The Tieline Gateway introduces a new era in high-density multichannel IP codec streaming. The Gateway supports up to 16 mono channels or 8 stereo streams of bidirectional IP audio in 1RU to increase efficiency and reduce rack space requirements. It interfaces easily with legacy analog and AES/EBU digital sources, as well as newer broadcast plants with AES67 and ST 2110-30 IP audio infrastructure. An optional WheatNet-IP card is also available.
The Gateway is perfect for large-scale audio distribution to single or multiple locations, as well as managing multiple incoming remotes at the studio using SmartStream PLUS redundant IP streaming and Fuse-IP data aggregation technologies over internet connections. It is interoperable with all Tieline IP codecs and compatible over SIP with all EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326, 3347 and 3368 compliant codecs and devices.
Bond multiple interfaces with Fuse-IP
Imagine the peace of mind knowing you can bond data links from different Telcos and let Tieline’s Fuse-IP technology automatically manage the data capability of each link!
Perfect for STL, SSL and audio distribution applications, with support for multicasting and multiple unicasting technologies. It is also perfect for managing multiple incoming remotes at the studio and can simultaneously connect to up to 16 hardware codecs or Report-IT Enterprise smartphone app users.
Multiple Backup Options
The Gateway has multiple levels of power, audio and network redundancy. The codec features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual internal power supplies, automated audio silence detection and IP network backup solutions to ensure you’re always on the air.
Automated network failure detection provides auto switching to a backup IP connection. The codec can automatically switch between 4 backup audio sources to maintain program output at transmitter sites.
