9 April 2015, Cleveland Ohio, USA

The Telos Alliance is pleased to announce its partnership with Wowza® Media Systems (, one of the industry’s leading streaming media service providers with clients in more than 150 countries.

Telos Alliance is now a part of the Works With Wowza™ partner program, ensuring that Z/IPStream products are tested, integrated and supported with Wowza Streaming Engine™ software. This further simplifies streaming for joint Wowza and Telos Alliance customers.

Z/IPStream streaming audio processor / encoders from The Telos Alliance give broadcasters powerful, easy-to-use tools that supply listeners with clean, clear and artifact-free audio. The integration with Wowza Streaming Engine provides an easy deployment path for broadcasters who want to set up an audio-only streaming workflow.

Z/IPStream is the third generation of professional streaming-audio products that originated when Telos launched the world's first MPEG streaming hardware, the AudioActive Encoder, in 1996. In 2002, we leveraged our experience, introducing Omnia A/X, the first native PC software to combine audio processing, stream encoding, and integration with third-party streaming servers. Now, the Z/IPStream family includes software, hardware and plug-in PC cards — allowing users to choose the solution that best suits their needs and operational philosophy. All Z/IPStream products feature audio processing algorithms from Omnia Audio and genuine Fraunhofer IIS codecs for superior streaming audio.

Z/IPStream X/2, 9/X2, R/1 and S4 products provide easy integration with Wowza Streaming Engine software. The Z/IPStream family of products ( includes:

  • Cloud-ready Z/IPStream X/2 and Z/IPStream 9/X2 software for Windows® PCs
  • Z/IPStream R/1, a professional, rack-mounted hardware processor + encoder
  • Z/IPStream.S4 multi-channel PCIExpress cards for computer-based streaming + encoding
  • Z/IPStream F/XE processor + encoder for file-based streaming content
