The Remote Revolution is Here...
It’s time to reimagine remote broadcasting with the definitive remote
codec of our generation. Tieline’s revolutionary new ViA portable codec
sets a new standard in wireless remote broadcasting and will
fundamentally change the way you perform live remotes.
Picture yourself or an announcer taking your codec to a remote site,
powering it up and tapping a single button on a color touchscreen to get
connected – just like making a phone call. Wouldn’t it be great if
remotes were that simple? Well now they are – with ViA.
Remotes without limits
Our mission is to empower you with the technology to go live where no
broadcaster has been before, and make it simpler. To achieve this, ViA
delivers more IP choices and backup options than ever before.
Connect using dual LAN Ethernet ports, or 2 USB modems, or use the
on-board Wi-Fi module to connect over Wi-Fi. Insert an optional POTS or
ISDN module and the codec is instantly transformed to connect over
alternative network transports. This means you can configure primary and
backup connections over different network transports as required, or
use them as your IFB circuit.
Fuse-IP and SmartStream PLUS
Tieline’s proprietary Fuse-IP data aggregation technology lets you bond any IP interfaces you choose, including:
- 2 USB modems, or
- On-board Wi-Fi, or
- Dual Ethernet LAN ports.
Imagine the peace of mind knowing you can bond 2 USB modem data links
from different Telcos and let Tieline’s Fuse-IP technology
automatically manage the data capability of each link!
Tieline understands flexibility is paramount for remotes, so you can
even bond a USB modem with a Wi-Fi connection, or bond two Ethernet
ViA also includes Tieline’s SmartStream PLUS dual redundant streaming
software, which has set the benchmark for redundant IP streaming over
the public internet. Some manufacturers charge thousands of dollars for
IP management software like SmartStream PLUS as an optional extra,
however Tieline believes high performance and rock-solid reliability is
an essential part of each and every broadcast, so you get it for FREE!
Nobody likes a traffic jam, least of all broadcasters dealing with IP
packet congestion! With Tieline’s SmartStream PLUS and Fuse-IP
technologies, as well as automated jitter buffer management and error
correction strategies, you can be assured of trouble-free motoring on
the information superhighway!
Program and Communications
ViA seamlessly integrates with Tieline’s Merlin and Merlin PLUS audio
codecs to transmit high fidelity, full duplex stereo program audio with
a separate bidirectional IFB circuit. As an example, you could use a
USB data modem to broadcast your main program feed and another USB modem
or Wi-Fi to transmit your IFB circuit. Now that’s flexible!
New at NAB 2017
At this year’s NAB Show Tieline will unveil a new firmware release
with a suite of new features focused on routing and connection
flexibility. The new ViA codec firmware upgrade includes:
- A comprehensive configurable mixer with simple touchscreen routing controls for all inputs and outputs.
- Touchscreen PA output controls to route outgoing program audio and
mix-minus return audio to XLR PA outputs. These outputs are often used
to send audio to a PA system at a remote broadcast site.
- A graphic equalizer for adjustments to input audio.
The configurable mixer supports saving and recalling matrix profiles for remotes with different routing requirements.
