As voice talent, we see a simplistic view of the distance remote-recording transaction.  The producer or audio engineer contacts us, we talk into the mic, they record it...we dust off our hands, and are done.  That's why the ISDN alternative technologies look so good to us.  Cheaper,...

More ISDN Death Knell Predictions?

Just a few days ago, I posted a quick blog about Telos' Z/IP product.  More than just an ISDN codec, it also has IP functionality built-in.  My point in writing about it was that here is one of the world's premier ISDN codec producers, tipping their hat to the future, seeing the writing on the IP...

Telos Z/IP

Yes...I know...ISDN is not dead yet.  OK, got it. But when one of  the top makers of ISDN codecs begins moving aggressively to design and market its newest IP solution for remote hi-fidelity recording, it moves the needle a little further towards "I" for inevitable. Telos came out with what it...

John Bisset of Telos Alliance was at the table next to mine at Faffcon 7's "meet the sponsors" event.  I didn't have a lot of time to talk to him other than to mention that I owned an XStream codec...then we were both off to talk to people visiting our displays.  He seemed like an affable,...

AudioTX Rebirth

When I first got into ISDN, I connected through AudioTX.  Not that many people are familiar with it.  AudioTX is a UK firm with a 14-yr track record in connectivity.  The equipment is nothing like a Telos or Musicam codec.  No box at all.  You get a dongle, some software, and then you have to...
