Telos Alliance has launched Telos Infinity VIP Virtual Intercom Platform. The new option is part of Telos Alliance’s strategy to offer virtual audio solutions that further expand its growing virtual ecosystem.
Infinity VIP delivers comms virtually, making cloud-based media production workflows available on any device — smartphone, laptop, desktop or tablet. Users can also use third-party control devices, like Elgato Stream Deck, to control Telos Infinity VIP.
The platform allows users to benefit from Telos Infinity IP Intercom’s features anywhere: at home, on-prem, site-to-site or in the cloud.
“Telos Infinity has revolutionized comms forever by eliminating the outmoded centralized matrix,” said Martin Dyster, VP of Business Development for Telos Alliance. “We are doing it again with the new Telos Infinity Virtual Intercom Platform, the next evolution of Infinity that, for the first time, puts fully-featured broadcast Intercom in the Cloud. This opens up a whole new world of virtual comm workflows, responds to customer demand for remote workflows, and aligns with Telos Alliance’s larger push toward virtualization across product lines.”
Telos Alliance offers several deployment options for VIP, which the company explains scales to suit users’ varying requirements, from a few remote smartphone VIP instances to an enterprise solution requiring hundreds of instances. These include:
- On-Prem — Uses Telos Infinity VIP hardware appliance or customer’s own server for on-prem installations.
- Integrated — For both on-prem or cloud versions, the Telos Infinity VIP system can be integrated with Telos Infinity beltpacks and hardware panels or any third-party intercom or audio subsystem using AES67 or SMPTE 2110-30 connectivity.
- Cloud Server — Software for supported cloud platform installations. A complete communications infrastructure in the cloud with connectivity options for integration with third-party cloud-based and on-prem audio subsystems.
- Software as a Service (SaaS) — Various third-party Telos Alliance partners will offer a Telos Infinity VIP SaaS option, allowing users to lease it in a virtual environment.
