Expanded Backup Options

The Genie Distribution IP codecs have multiple levels of power, audio and network redundancy. The codec features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual internal power supplies, automated audio silence detection and IP network backup solutions to ensure you’re always on the air.

Applications

Genie Distribution delivers superior quality audio over IP (AoIP) on LANs, WANs, the internet, satellite IP, 3G, 4G, Wi-MAX and Wi-Fi. It is specifically designed for continuous operation over mission critical audio paths throughout broadcast IP networks. It is ideal for:

  • 3 x bidirectional stereo connections, or
  • 2 x stereo and 2 x mono bidirectional connections, or
  • 1 x stereo and 4 x mono bidirectional connections, or
  • 6 x mono bidirectional connections.

Multiple Backup Options

Genie Distribution IP codecs have multiple levels of power, audio and network redundancy. The codec features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual internal power supplies, automated audio silence detection and IP network backup solutions to ensure you’re always on the air.

An automated network failure detection feature provides switching to a backup IP LAN connection. You can also fail over to backup ISDN or POTS connections as required using optional ISDN or POTS modules.

Genie Distribution can 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 to outputs if power fails.

SmartStream PLUS redundant streaming

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

Bond multiple interfaces with Fuse-IP

Imagine the peace of mind knowing you can bond Ethernet ports or Wi-Fi from different Telcos and let Tieline’s Fuse-IP technology automatically manage the data capability of each link!
