Telos Offers Special Introductory Price on Zephyr/IP

August 12, 2008, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Telos Systems is now offering the new Zephyr/IP (the acclaimed IP Codec optimized for superior operation over Internet and mobile phone data services) at a special introductory price.

For a limited time, Zephyr/IP is available for $3,995.00 USD on orders placed before October 15, 2008. “We are coming into the busiest remote season of the year,” says managing director Denny Sanders. “Sporting events are a perfect opportunity to experience the stability and reliability of the Z/IP’s exclusive technology in a long form broadcast.” Zephyr/IP’s normal list price is $5,980.00 USD.

Zephyr/IP utilizes ACTTM (Agile Connection Technology), which combines state-of-theart loss detection and concealment with dynamic buffering and auto-varying bitrate functions to continuously adapt to network conditions, minimizing the effects of packet loss, bandwidth variations, and jitter that occur on real-world networks. Z/IP also works directly with high-speed mobile phone data networks; a PC Card slot accepts standard mobile data cards.

Z/IP also introduces another technology leap: AAC-ELD, a new codec based on the LowDelay AAC coding standard. With its excellent fidelity at low bitrates, nearly inaudible loss concealment and auto bitrate and jitter tuning, AAC-ELD delivers amazingly clear, high-fidelity audio over Internet connections.

The Telos Z/IP Server enables Z/IP users to dial other Z/IPs by name, traverse NATs automatically, visualize the connection path on a world map and display the live status of Z/IPs in their speed dial list. (The Z/IP Server service is provided by Telos at no charge to Z/IP customers.)
