Telos Z/IP One

Z/IP ONE is the newest addition to the Zephyr family — an affordable, 1 RU codec designed to help you get the best possible quality from public IP networks and mobile phone data services, even from connections behind NATs and firewalls. Agile Connection Technology (ACT), a Telos exclusive, is the foundation for the Z/IP's excellent performance on real-world networks. It delivers reliable audio despite varying network conditions, and without the need for user intervention. The Z/IP dynamically adapts to the network, minimizing the effects of packet loss and jitter.

When the network is well behaved, you will benefit from the lowest possible delay and the highest possible fidelity. Should network conditions become challenging, the Z/IP ONE automatically responds by lowering the bitrate and increasing the buffer length, doing everything possible to ensure audio makes it to your studio reliably.

Z/IP ONE extracts excellent quality from even not-so-excellent IP connections, thanks to a new codec based on low delay AAC: Advanced Audio Coding-Enhanced Low Delay (AAC-ELD), which gives excellent fidelity at low bitrates with nearly inaudible loss concealment and very little delay.

And of course, Z/IP ONE speaks fluent Livewire; in addition to standard I/O, the Livewire connection lets it connect to any Axia IP-Audio network using just a CAT-5 cable.
