New partnership for Bionics
Broadcast Bionics has teamed up with Telos Systems as a software development partner for next-generation phone systems.
The deal will allow the PhoneBOX creator to use the new TelosVX platform at the core of their software products.
“PhoneBOX has gained a reputation as one of the most innovative, useful products on the market for talk-intensive radioformats,” says Denny Sanders, Telos Systems Managing Director.
”Telos VX is the world’s first multi-line broadcast telephone system based on VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. VX uses standard SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) and RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) protocols, so it works with VoIP-based PBX or SIP-trunking Telco service and may be scaled to direct up to 80 lines of phone traffic across as many as 20 broadcast studios.
It uses standard Ethernet as its network backbone, and for interconnection with IP-Audio networks.Broadcast Bionics’ PhoneBOX VX, which will be introduced at NAB 2010 in Las Vegas this week, is a scalable, SIP-based talk showsystem that integrates directly with Telos VX systems to manage and integrate callers, emails, SMS and control of ISDN and IP codecs into a single converged system, giving talent comprehensive control of interactive audience participation such aslistener polls and competitions.
It integrates with Axia networks and consoles.“Telos VX is a very powerful, very advanced system that we believe will really open engineers’ eyes to the power of VoIP in the broadcast studio. PhoneBOXVX offers Telos VX customers the full PhoneBOX graphical user interface, including years of design, innovation and experience,” says Broadcast Bionics’ Dan McQuillin.
“It incorporates customer ideas and feedback from the mostdemanding regional and national TV and radio stations around the world. We have redesigned the GUI to beautifully complement the new Telos VX Phonehandsets; everything is dedicated to making every operation simple andintuitive. It also happens to look fantastic!”
Broadcast Bionics has also recently become the new main site sponsor of RadioToday.co.uk.
