  The new HTML5 Toolbox Scheduler

Tieline's major new firmware release v2.16.80 for the Genie and Merlin codec families debuts at IBC 2017.

This release delivers a range of powerful new features, including a new HTML5 Toolbox web-browser GUI for all codec control and configuration. It runs seamlessly on modern browsers, including Mac, Windows and Linux platforms, and removes any connectivity issues due to regular Java updates designed to mitigate exposure to security vulnerabilities.

A powerful program scheduling tool also provides the ability to automatically connect and disconnect scheduled programs using a simple calendar-based user interface. Enhanced network security features include new support for SSL certificates and SIP whitelist and blacklist configuration.

Genie STL and Genie Distribution codecs can now automatically switch between 4 backup audio sources to maintain program output at transmitter sites. Options include:

  • Connection audio.
  • Icecast streaming client.
  • Audio file backup.
  • Hardware bypass of audio inputs.

Fuse-IP bonding support and USB Wi-Fi connectivity has been added to all products, as well as support for:

  • Deterministic SIP routing.
  • 6 SIP user accounts and 2 SIP interfaces.
  • WheatNet-IP logic I/O in WheatNet codecs.
  • Line hunt call answering.
  • Codec caller IDs.
  • Codec upgrades using a USB stick.
