Telos Xstream ISDN Codec
Telos Xstream ISDN CodecXSTREAM
The Telos Zephyr Xstream rackmount transceiver is specially designed to work with a single ISDN line or other low-bitrate transmission paths, including IP networks, so it's an ideal choice for broadcast or voiceover studios, permanent remote locations or wherever high-quality transmission of news, sports, music or production is needed.

With its two-channel flexibility over a single ISDN circuit (or two synchronous links), Zephyr Xstream can transmit and receive 20kHz stereo audio to and from a single location, or two mono channels to and from separate locations.

Zephyr Xstream also offers IP streaming with both MP3 and AAC. Its AAC decoder incorporates error concealment.

Note: Audio codec systems require two units for operation.



Telos Zephyr Xstream Features:
• G.722, G.711 and MPEG Layer-3 and Layer-2 coding for compatibility MPEG-2 AAC coding for CD-quality audio
• MPEG-4 AAC-LD coding for high audio quality with low delay
• 100Base-T Ethernet port allows remote control and streaming of AAC or MP3-coded audio over a LAN, WAN or the Internet (TCP/IP network connectivity also include web browser remote control and easy upgrade of system software via FTP)
• Livewire input/output support for easy one-connector-integration into Axia local audio networks
• Analog and AES/EBU inputs and outputs with independent sample rate converters
• Front-panel headphone jack with level control
• Auto-configuring 90-240 volt power supply
• Optional V.35/X.21 interface available
• All Telos products include a 5 year warranty

ZEPHYR XSTREAM ISDN TRANSMISSION MODES

Stereo and Dual-Mono Modes Using Two ISDN “B” channels:
• MPEG-2 AAC Joint Stereo @ 20kHz or 15kHz for maximum fidelity.
• MPEG-2 AAC independent Stereo @ 20kHz or 15kHz.
• MPEG-4 AAC-LD Joint Stereo @ 14kHz for high quality with low delay
• MPEG-4 AAC-LD Independent Stereo @ 14kHz for high quality with low delay
• Layer 3 Joint Stereo @ 16 kHz or 15kHz for high fidelity and compatibility.
• Layer 3 Independent Stereo @ 16kHz or 15kHz for compatibility and surround-sound transmission.
• Layer 3 Indepenedent Dual-Mono allows each “B” channel to independently transmit and receive 15.8kHz.
• Layer 2 Joint Stereo @ 20kHz or 15kHz.
• Layer 2 Independent Stereo @ 7.8 or 9.8kHz.
• G.722 Mono-Dual allows each “B” channel to independently transmit and receive 7kHz. Stereo Modes Using One ISDN “B” channel:
• MPEG-2 AAC Stereo 64 @ 7kHz or 10kHz.

Mono Modes Using One ISDN “B” channel:
• MPEG-2 AAC @ 20kHz or 15kHz for maximum fidelity.
