New Telos Hx POTS hybrids win at NAB

17 May 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA

New Telos Hx1 single-line and Hx2 dual-line POTS hybrids came away from NAB 2011 with a fan club - and the award to prove it.

"We knew that our new Hx hybrids were going to be popular," says Telos product manager Joe Talbot, "but winning an award - well, that's icing on the cake!"

Hx1 and Hx2 are the recipients of Radio magazine's "Pick Hit" award, given annually by a panel of broadcast professionals to their selection of the top 15 new products introduced at NAB. For broadcasters with analog call-in lines, the new Hx1 and Hx2 are an inexpensive, immediate way to improve caller audio. The new hybrids contain the most advanced Telos digital signal processing ever, and include sweetening from Omnia Audio to automatically manage AGC and EQ.

Hx hybrids are full of sophisticated standard features like built-in auto-answer capabilities, new caller-disconnect detection, ingenious audio-leveling and anti-feedback routines that make the best of open speaker studio applications, call screening and line-hold features, front-panel meters for send and receive audio levels, and a bulletproof internal universal power supply. A choice of standard analog or optional AES/EBU I/O is available.

Perhaps most importantly, Hx hybrids have new DSP coding that help them tame even the most out-of-control cell phone calls, smoothing dynamic swings and enhancing intelligibility.

Hx1 and Hx2 hybrids are now shipping. The single-line Hx1 starts at just $795.00 US MSRP, and the two-line Hx2 at only $1,295.00. For more details, visit
