By John Lux

[fusion_dropcap class="fusion-content-tb-dropcap"]I[/fusion_dropcap]DEAS announced the addition of a Telos Zephyr Xstream ISDN box to its post production audio department. The Telos Zephyr Xstream is a full-featured rackmount ISDN transceiver with built-in ISDN terminal adapter for worldwide use. The Zephyr Xstream is added to the existing Dolby Fax ISDN box at IDEAS.

“This upgrade is a great enhancement for both our clients and for us, we’ve always been able to do exceptional ISDN work worldwide, the addition of the Zephyr Xstream now gives us added flexibility.” John Lux, COO of IDEAS, remarked. “The Dolby Fax box that we have been using for years is the industry standard for sending and receiving ISDN for ADR sessions that require picture lock. The Zephyr Xstream box is the industry standard for sending and receiving ISDN for voice over recording,” Lux continued. “Being able to continue to do the ISDN ADR sessions that we have done for many years while adding the flexibility of a box that will make us fully compatible with our VO recording clients gives us the best scenario, regardless of what session we are doing.”

The Telos Zephyr Xstream is a rackmount-style transceiver specially designed for use with a single ISDN line. The Zephyr Xstream is perfect for broadcast or voice over studios, permanent remote locations or wherever high-quality transmission of news, sports, music or production is needed. It includes AES/EBU I/O and features full duplex stereo operation of up to 20kHz audio on a single ISDN line. The two-channel flexibility over a single ISDN circuit, or two synchronous links, can be used to transmit and receive 20kHz stereo audio to and from a single location, or two broadcast quality mono channels to and from separate locations.
