Telos ships over 50 Z/IP ONE IP codecs in first 30 days

3 June 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Z/IP ONE, the new Zephyr IP codec from Telos, is already showing signs of becoming a big hit at radio, with over 50 units shipped in just 30 days. Radio loves theZ/IP ONE 's ability to extract excellent, broadcast-quality remote audio from unpredictable public Internet connections.

College and University broadcasters seem to be finding Z/IP ONE especially appealing, thanks to its space-saving 1RU form factor, and its friendly $1,995 (USD) list price. Recently, Z/IP ONE codecs have shipped to a far-flung selection of educational broadcasters such as California State University, Chico's KCSC-FM, Iowa State University, Ames' KURE-FM, and Columbia Union College's WGTS-FM in Takoma Park, Maryland.

Z/IP ONE sounds extraordinarily clean and clear, thanks to Telos' exclusive ACT feature (short for Agile Connection Technology), the foundation for its exceptional performance on Internet links. When the network connection is good, Z/IP provides the lowest possible delay and the highest possible fidelity. If bandwidth decreases or latency rises, Z/IP ONE's ACT routines automatically lower the bitrate and increase buffer length to ensure the best possible audio is delivered with the least delay. Another reason Z/IP ONE sounds great is its huge choice of high-performance codecs - the largest in the industry: AAC-ELD, AAC-HE, AACLD, MPEG Layer 2, MPEG 4 AAC LC, MPEG 2 AAC LC, G.711, G.722 and linear PCM, as well as SIP protocol support for VoIP devices. There's also a transparent RS-232 channel and an 8-bit parallel port for signaling and control, and twin LAN ports for streaming and control.

Z/IP ONE's small size is ideal for remote kits; its wireless connection capabilities allow connecting to IP networks via Wi-Fi, EVDO, and UMTS, and a Telos-tested Wi-Fi stick is included with every Z/IP ONE. Telos' free Z/IP Server service helps users get around troublesome firewalls and NATs, and provides easy "buddy list" connections to other Z/IPs.

Z/IP ONE carries a list price of just $1,995 and is shipping now. Visit to find your local distributor.
