New from Tieline

Dual Active SIM Module

Tieline has developed a new Dual Active SIM internal module for the ViA remote codec supporting two active cellular connections. Designed to perform in the most challenging production environments, the new module supports using SIM cards from different Telcos simultaneously for diversity with Tieline’s SmartStream PLUS dual redundant streaming. Bonding the two SIM cards can also create additional bandwidth using a single robust Fuse-IP link.

“The new ViA dual internal modem will deliver more choice to Tieline customers for wireless remote broadcasting,” said Charlie Gawley, VP Sales APAC/EMEA. “The ViA already supports dual USB modems but many customers requested an internal module with dual modems to avoid using external dongles. This innovation also means there will be seven different IP interface options from which to choose when going live.”

The ViA offers the ability to connect over dual Ethernet ports, built-in Wi-Fi (no USB modem required), dual USB modems, and now the new module with dual internal modems. Any two interfaces can also be bonded to deliver secure and robust connections from remote locations in challenging environments. The new Dual Active SIM module has 4 antenna connections to provide antenna diversity for both SIM card connections.

Tieline has also announced the official release of the Cloud Codec Controller software tool. The Controller is designed to manage an entire fleet of Tieline codecs remotely, and allows engineers to configure, connect and monitor all remote codecs from the studio. 

“Remote control is a powerful tool for broadcasters and Tieline’s Cloud Codec Controller delivers a simple user interface to control all functions of a remote codec from the studio, at home, or anywhere they have an internet connection,” said Charlie Gawley, Tieline’s VP Sales APAC & EMEA.

“The Cloud Codec Controller integrates Tieserver and the latest cloud computing technologies to deliver secure real-time monitoring and remote control of all your ViA, Merlin, Genie and Bridge-IT codecs, as well as smartphones using Report-IT Enterprise.”

Tieline offers two versions of licensing for the Cloud Codec Controller:

A Private Network License allows monitoring and management of an unlimited number of codecs over a private network for a low one-time fee.

A Public Internet License allows monitoring and management of codecs over the public internet using Codec Client Licenses available as an annual subscription in packs of 10. This license also includes the features of a Private Network License.
