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
The 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 With Tieline’s proprietary Fuse-IP data aggregation technology you can bond multiple IP interfaces, including options like: – 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 Ethernet connections. 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!
