"Tieline is thrilled to have won an inaugural Product Innovation Award for Merlin PLUS, which recognizes all the hard work behind the creation of this ground-breaking IP codec,” said Will McLean, Tieline’s Manager of Corporate Operations. “Merlin PLUS incorporates state-of-the-art technology and introduces capabilities such as 6 simultaneous mono remotes and 2 simultaneous stereo remotes with separate IFB channels.”
“Merlin PLUS also includes Tieline’s SmartStream PLUS software as standard for streaming simultaneous redundant data streams. This allows high quality, rock solid audio to be transported over inexpensive DSL IP links, potentially saving broadcasters many thousands of dollars every year. Tieline was also the first IP codec manufacturer to introduce the Opus algorithm as standard in its Merlin and Genie families of professional IP audio codecs.”
