KBOO Web Stream Upgrade
We are pleased to announce that KBOO Engineering has installed a new Telos Zipstream R1 audio streamer to upgrade our online audio experience for our listeners. The new hardware went live on Thursday March 9th. Our old streamer was a desktop PC with an onboard audio processing card, and has served us well for years. Now, our new Telos Zipstream will handle professional audio input/output connections and offers onboard signal processing to improve overall audio quality. This network based audio streamer will also communicate with our new Production 3 Wheatstone audio console for future podcast or secondary live web stream presentation.
Z/IPSTREAM R/1 OVERVIEW
Z/IPStream combines audio processing with MP3 and AAC encoding in one convenient, single-rack unit. The AAC encoder supports AAC-LC, HE-AAC and HE-AAC v2 formats, and is fully managed and configured remotely with any standard Web browser. Z/IPStream features a wideband AGC, 3-band compressor/limiter, EQ, low-pass filter and a precision look-ahead final limiter; processed audio can then be encoded directly to MP3 or AAC streams to feed a remote replication server at your ISP. Streams can be “tagged” with “now-playing” information received from automation systems. Analog and Livewire® I/O are standard.
Thank You all KBOO Members who have made this possible. This is where your dollars go.
Chief BOO Engineer
