Learn about Tieline’s ViA, the world’s most advanced remote codec which can stream live and record and play audio files.

Remotes without limits...

Our mission is to empower you with the technology to go live where no broadcaster has been before, and make it simpler. ViA delivers 6 IP interface options, making it simpler to go live than ever before.

Connect over IP with dual Ethernet LAN ports, or 2 USB modems, or an internal dual active SIM LTE module, or use built-in Wi-Fi. There’s no need for an external Wi-Fi modem and you can connect to access points in seconds. Stream using a cell-phone Wi-Fi hotspot, or connect to hotels and other public Wi-Fi access points using the integrated web-portal in a snap!

Insert an optional ISDN module and the codec is instantly transformed to connect over alternative network transports. This means you can configure primary and backup connections over different network transports as required, or use them as your IFB circuit.

Stream, record & play

Stream live audio and view and manage recordings, create playlists of local and imported files, then control playback routing to encoders and analog and digital outputs. Produce & record your own broadcast quality podcasts to removable media, or upload files directly from the unit via FTP.

intuitive interface

The color touch screen has menus designed to provide a familiar and intuitive user experience, similar to using a smartphone. Navigate and configure settings with the touch screen, or use front panel navigation buttons - the choice is yours. Adaptive light-sensor controls ensure the screen is readable in even the toughest light conditions

Power on the GO!

A rechargeable Lithium-ion smart battery delivers up to 6.5 hours* of broadcast time. Extend battery performance with features such as screen sleep time-out, screen brightness controls, plus automatic low battery power saving measures.

Wi-Fi Built-In!

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and an integrated web portal expands your connection options from access points in hotels, fast food chains, or even a smartphone’s Wi-Fi hotspot. Add Wi-Fi access points in seconds and stream program audio or your IFB circuit.

Dual Cellular USB Modems

ViA supports many pre-tested cellular USB modems out of the box. Insert a modem into a USB port and you're ready to go live in seconds! Bond data from modems with Fuse-IP, or use 2 modems with SmartStream PLUS dual redundant streaming

Route any input to any output

ViA delivers the ultimate in flexibility by allowing any input to be routed to any output using the simple touch screen Matrix Router. The codec also supports saving, renaming and loading custom matrices. Customize Cue and Talkback functionality to easily route communications audio locally, or to the studio.

SmartStream PLUS redundant streaming

Connect two inexpensive IP links to codecs with SmartStream PLUS and stream simultaneous redundant data streams from different IP interfaces to deliver seamless redundancy when streaming over IP.

Bond multiple interfaces with Fuse-IP

Imagine the peace of mind knowing you can bond 2 cellular data links from different Telcos and let Tieline’s Fuse-IP technology automatically manage the data capability of each link!
