    Product Description


    Tieline Commander G3 field and studio rack-mount IP codecs are used by thousands of radio and television broadcasters around the world every day for remote broadcasting, studio-to-transmitter links (STLs) and studio-to-studio audio distribution.

    Recognized as the world’s most powerful and reliable IP audio codecs, the Commander G3 can connect over a variety of network transports. Featuring interchangeable module slots, they can be customized to connect over a variety of connections according to each broadcaster’s unique requirements.

    All Commanders feature two module slots, which accept your choice of hardware plug-in modules. This allows broadcasters to send high quality, low-delay live audio over IP, 3G/4G, POTS/PSTN analog telephone lines, ISDN, X.21, GSM and B-GAN satellite networks.

    All Tieline codecs are EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326 compatible over IP and the company is committed to developing new IP and 3G/4G wireless IP applications that take advantage of emerging network infrastructures around the globe.
