More than just an IP codec15 September 2017
An updated ViA product now delivers more IP choices and backup options than before. With built-in dual-band WiFi and an integrated web browser, crews can connect to hotel WiFi and other hotspots in seconds, said Tieline. ViA also has dual LAN ports and dual USB ports for Fuse-IP bonding and SmartStream Plus dual redundant IP streaming, so that mission-critical audio can have multiple IP streaming and backup options.
ViA is a digital mixer, router and IP codec with ‘impressive’ connection options and audio processing capability, said the company. A user can adjust individual headphone mixes, input EQ, compression and audio routing via the touchscreen in seconds. The configurable mixer supports saving and recalling matrix profiles for remotes with different routing requirements.
ViA’s new firmware release also features touchscreen routing of audio sources to XLR and digital outputs, as well as analogue and digital output level controls.
Features include full duplex stereo program plus separate full duplex IFB communications; five-input digital mixer and configurable matrix router; stereo analogue line in, or stereo digital USB or S/PDIF I/O; dual LAN and USB ports and optional ISDN or POTS modules; and more.
