Tieline’s new Gateway Multichannel IP audio codec has been selected as a winner of one of the broadcast industry’s most prestigious technology honors, the 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year Award.

The Tieline Gateway is the most powerful DSP-based 1RU IP codec enabling transport of multiple channels of mono or stereo audio across the Public Internet or any QoS-enabled IP network, including T1 and T3 connections and private WANs with MPLS. The Gateway streams up to 16 IP audio channels with support for AES67, ST 2110-30, AES3 and analog I/O as standard.

“Broadcasters these days want more functionality within a compact rackmount footprint, combined with simple connectivity and flexible remote control features,” said Will McLean, Tieline’s CEO. “The Gateway delivers world class functionality and interoperability for IP streaming over WANs, as well as integration with AES67 and ST 2110-30 compatible networks.”

Flexible Distribution and Contribution Solutions

The Gateway is perfect for large-scale audio distribution as well as managing multiple incoming remotes at the studio, with hitless packet switching using SmartStream PLUS redundant streaming and bandwidth aggregation using Fuse-IP technologies over internet connections. It supports 16 bidirectional mono or 8 bidirectional stereo streams of IP audio in 1RU to increase channel density and reduce rack space requirements.

Its feature-rich and compact design is interoperable with all Tieline IP codecs and compatible over SIP with all EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326 and 3368 compliant codecs and devices.

The Gateway has two standard versions. One supports 8 Channels in/out (8 Mono or 4 Stereo) and the other supports 16 Channels in/out (16 Mono or 8 Stereo). The codec also supports a flexible upgrade path that allows you to buy a Gateway with 8 channels and upgrade the codec over time as needs change or your network expands.

The Tieline Gateway interfaces with legacy analog and AES/EBU sources, as well as newer broadcast plants with AES67 and ST 2110-30 IP audio infrastructure. An optional WheatNet-IP card will also be available.

Configurable through an embedded HTML5 Toolbox Web-GUI interface, the Gateway can also interface with the TieLink Traversal Server for simpler connections and is fully controllable using Tieline’s Cloud Codec Controller.

The Gateway will be available towards the end of 2020 and for more information visit www.tieline.com/gateway or contact Tieline sales:
