IP Audio Distribution Without Compromise...
Tieline's award winning Genie Distribution is the world's most powerful DSP-based IP audio codec for multipoint audio distribution over a wide range of wired and wireless IP networks.
Designed for the latest digital IP broadcast networks, Genie Distribution is the most feature-packed audio distribution codec with multiple levels of power, audio and network redundancy.
Genie Distribution is the World’s most powerful IP audio codec for LAN and WAN audio distribution applications.
Genie Distribution delivers superior quality audio over IP (AoIP) on LANs, WANs, the internet, satellite IP, 3G, 4G, Wi-MAX and Wi-Fi. It is specifically designed for continuous operation over mission critical audio paths throughout broadcast IP networks. It is ideal for:
Stereo IP audio distribution to up to 50 individual multi-unicast end-points.
Stereo Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs) to multiple endpoints.
IP multicasting to unlimited endpoints over compatible IP networks.
Distributing up to 6 channels of high quality audio between two codecs
Genie Distribution is capable of 24bit 96kHz low latency linear PCM audio, delivering unsurpassed sonic clarity. The codec also features a full complement of professional algorithms including the low delay and cascade-resilient E-apt-X algorithm, as well as the popular LC-AAC, HE-AAC v1 and v2, Opus, MPEG Layer II, Tieline Music and MusicPLUS, G.722 and G.711 algorithms. Asymmetric encoding and decoding lets you send high quality audio in one direction and save on data by sending low bandwidth program on the return channel.
Multiple Backup Options
Genie Distribution features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000), dual redundant power supplies, audio silence detection and IP network backup solutions to ensure you’re always on the air.
Automated network failure detection provides switching to a backup IP LAN connection. Automatic silence detection can fail over to an alternative audio input using the optional input expansion card, or playback MP2 or MP3 audio files from a thumb-drive drive attached to Genie's USB Host port
SmartStream: Rock Solid Audio using Inexpensive IP Links
As an IP audio pioneer, Tieline was the first major codec manufacturer to integrate SmartStream features such as Automated Jitter Buffer management, Forward Error Correction (FEC) and error concealment techniques in all IP codecs. These features dynamically respond to variable conditions over unmanaged IP networks like the public internet to ensure reliable streaming.
Now SmartStream PLUS has revolutionised IP broadcasting by delivering the rock solid and reliable STL-grade audio quality you would expect over a T1/E1 link by using inexpensive unmanaged IP networks like the internet for STLs, audio distribution and remotes.

with SmartStream PLUS Redundant
Tieline can show you how an investment in new codecs will pay for itself in just a few months by using SmartStream PLUS over inexpensive IP links to transport STL-grade, high fidelity audio at a fraction of the cost of synchronous leased lines. With SmartStream PLUS:
The codec can stream simultaneous redundant data streams from both Ethernet ports and deliver seamless redundancy by switching back and forth, without loss of audio, from the nominated primary data link to the backup link if one fails and then subsequently recovers. Note: Use IP links from two different IP network providers for optimal redundancy over mission critical STL connections.
When multiple redundant audio streams are sent, the decoding codec automatically reconstructs audio into a perfect single stream on a first packet arrived basis to ensure audio integrity.
These combined measures ensure Tieline is capable of offering an IP STL solution, in which the payload capability of your network infrastructure is the only limitation to successfully distributing, reliable, high fidelity STL audio across broadcast networks.
SmartStream IP Delivers ...
Some other manufacturers charge thousands of dollars for IP management software like SmartStream as if it's an optional extra, however Tieline believes high performance and rock-solid reliability is an essential part of each and every broadcast, and therefore delivers its renowned SmartStream IP management software for free.
SmartStream PLUS delivers an additional layer of STL-grade redundancy and is available as standard in Tieline Genie Distribution.
Flexibility and Interoperability
Genie supports both IPv4 and IPv6 (Dual Stack) protocols, so broadcasters can be assured that they have made a smart investment for the future as new networks and technologies emerge over time. Connect over IP with any SIP-enabled IP codec brand that supports the EBU N/ACIP tech 3326 standard, as well as VoIP telephone devices supporting G.711 and G.722.
Wheatstone IP Interoperability
|Tieline WheatNet IP Card|
A specially designed WheatNet-IP enabled Genie Distribution is available for distributing 3 stereo channels of WheatNet-IP audio via a purpose-built rear panel and the Tieline WheatNet IP audio card.
This optional Genie Distribution rear panel provides a LAN interface for connecting the codec directly to a WheatNet-IP network and allows it to distribute audio to another studio over external IP networks like the internet. This allows you to keep your audio within the WheatNet IP Environment at all times.

Genie is also designed to be managed by Tieline’s new Codec Management System, which allows you to use any computer to manage your entire network of IP codecs remotely. You can use this powerful system to create and manage primary and backup connections and view audio PPMs and IP statistics to maintain mission critical connections. You can even adjust individual codec settings like algorithms, jitter buffers and forward error correction.
