Tieline Codecs Broadcast Live Around The Globe From The Beijng Games

Leading codec manufacturer Tieline Technology has announced that a number of high profile broadcasters are using its Commander and i-Mix audio codecs to broadcast live from the Olympic Games in Beijing.
Broadcasters such as the BBC, NBC, Fox News, NPR, Corus Radio in Canada and various People's Broadcasting Stations throughout China, are using Tieline codecs in Beijing. Darren Levy, Tieline's International Marketing Manager, said: "Our codecs have a track record of success broadcasting from major sporting events.
"i-Mix codecs are extremely well suited to sports broadcasting and were first used at the Olympics Games in Athens. Tieline codecs have been used extensively by both radio and television networks to broadcast from major sporting events since then."
Tieline's i-Mix and Commander codecs have also been used by broadcasters to stream live audio from the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and the 2008 UEFA Champions League football competition.
Levy said: "At the Games in Athens, our codecs primarily connected over ISDN and POTS lines. These days, our codecs are increasingly being used over IP and 3GIP wireless networks. The i-Mix contains all the tools found in a remote sports broadcasting studio. It has a mixer, matrix router, relays, communications and talkback facilities as well as codecs and remote control functionality."
All Tieline codecs are software configurable and capable of connecting over POTS, ISDN, X.21, GSM, IP and 3GIP networks using interchangeable plug-in modules tailored to each connection transport.
Levy said: "In Beijing, our codecs will be used over ISDN, POTS and IP networks. This flexibility provides broadcasters with the opportunity to dial over whatever connection transport is available at sports venues and other locations in Beijing and China.
"IP is the new frontier of broadcasting and since 2005 Tieline has been committed to shipping IP solutions for wired and wireless networks. Our QoS Performance Engine software enables Tieline codecs to withstand significant packet loss over IP and 3GIP connections and still deliver continuous high quality audio."
He continued: "Broadcasters can now confidently use IP and 3G networks for their primary broadcast connection. We anticipate that the proliferation of high-speed 3G and terrestrial LAN networks around the globe will increase the focus on IP broadcasting. Tieline will continue to develop new technologies that complement and improve current implementations of IP as broadcast infrastructures and technology continues to evolve."
Tieline codecs featuring POTS/PSTN, ISDN, X-21, GSM, IP, 3G/IP and SIP interoperability can be ordered for demonstration at any Tieline international office in the US, Switzerland and Australia, or from any listed Tieline dealer at:
