i-Mix G3 replaces Thousands of dollars worth of live remote broadcast equipment in a single box.

In this video I am going to show you
The incredible flexibility of the Tieline i-Mix G3 IP codec as a remote broadcast
and communications tool I will show you how it replaces thousands
of dollars worth of equipment i-mix combines 6 essential live broadcast
Products into 1 box
Weighing just 4lbs or 1.8kgs It can be used for talk shows, sports, music,
Field to studio communications
And live events i-mix was designed by live sports radio and television
event broadcasting specialists To integrate communications,
Control and programming functions While significantly reducing the set up time,
Number of people required on site, endless wiring and signal distribution costs. Let’s start with the front panel the mixer.
There are 5 mic line switchable inputs with configurable comms on each channel each channel has its own on/off button with fine input gain adjustment The on/off button can be configured as a cough button. which is permanently on
And then press to cough and then we are back on air software gain can also be set up.
for line level, unbalanced and 3 mic levels of
55 db, 65 db and 72 db with fine gain adjustment on top of that The next major feature is IFB and Comms This row of yellow buttons enables
a powerful suite of communications lets say I had 3 commentators on inputs
1, 2 and 3 plus an effect microphone on
input 4 and a producer on input 5 I can configure i-mix so that when commentator 1 presses comms 1, it mutes input 1, splits the
headphones for each person at this
end of the link into program in the left ear and comms in the right ear
and everyone can hear him I can also configure the producer’s comms button
to activate the cue matrix on the remote tieline so he can speak directly to the studio
all this happens without interrupting the program indecently we have found some customers like
to have on/off buttons and comms buttons switched around so that on/off is here and comms is here. also the input and headphone control knob
functionality can be switched. This is a
simple software switch to make this happen now we have the send/return mix this allows any headphone to select between hearing
only what’s going to the studio or what’s coming from the studio for fold back
or a mix of both The telephone coupler feature i-mix comes with two RJ11’s on the back one is a built in POTS modem allowing
15 kHz bi-directional audio
over a standard analog telephone line. the other one is a voice coupler
which allows voice calls to be made using the front panel telephone coupler
I can take live callers in the field when the call comes in it will flash on this button I can pick up the call by pressing the button
which puts the caller into cue mode Input 1 mic is muted for program and announcer 1
can talk to the caller off air when we are ready to take the caller live
we just press the on button and this brings the call into the mix. special telephone ducking software ensures that the
caller can never talk over the announcer and it has a built in mix-minus so the caller can not
hear themselves back over the line then we can but the caller back into cue mode
to take details or talk off air. and then hang up the call. the PA output feature the PA output gives me control over whether I send
local audio or return audio from the studio
out to the speakers or a mixture of both I have control over the PA with the on/off button I can also send live callers to my output
with my main program over here we have configurable hot keys this is where things get really powerful built into the i-mix is the ability to configure profiles,
trigger local relays, trigger remote relays
over your codec link switch comms channels automatically dial
specific locations with pre saved profiles
and many more these 4 hotkeys can be easily programmed to do
any one of those things Tieline can be configured for non technical users before sending it into the field, the engineer
can pre-program all parameters so all the
talent needs to know is how to plug in a microphone and the power. Then press one button to connect to the studio
over any network and you are on the air you can connect to an IP network and deliver
20 kHz mono, stereo or dual mono with low latency to another Tieline on the
other side of the planet you can also plug into an ordinary analog telephone
line. Also known as POTS or PSTN lines and dial back to another Tieline delivering up to
15 kHz bi-directional audio with less than 100ms delay there is an additional module slot which takes a wireless
3G card capable of 2 channels of 20 kHz stereo
over wireless cell phone broadband networks this card will also connect of GSM networks
and make a wireless voice call all you need to do is plug in your SIM card and choose your country
and your network in the menu and you are ready to dial the module slot can also take an ISDN card
which will connect to any brand of ISDN codec and we even have a x.21 digital leased line card each card is sold separately the digital matrix router Built into each i-mix is a powerful digital audio matrix router
which enables you to route any audio input to any audio
output lets say you wanted commentators on inputs
1 and 2 to go to codec encoder 1 only
and headphones 1 and 2 you can choose to put their audio on PPM 1
and the background noise microphone on PPM 2 you can then route their communications buttons
to either side of their headphones or the other
end of the codec link a producer would not go to air. So input 5 will only
go to encoder 2 which is for comms or taking
live callers. you can also set up profiles for each broadcast.
Simply load the profile to broadcast to different
locations or studios now lets turn it around and look at the back you can see we have the power cable here it’s a 4 pin XLR that snaps into place and cannot be
knocked out. The i-Mix can also run on 12vDC so you
can hook up any 12vDC battery source or even a UPS and run the codec without wires here are the 5 mic balanced switchable inputs.
and two balanced outputs the RCA’s are an additional unbalanced input there are 4 headphone outputs.
now we get to another major feature of the i-Mix
Remote Control between the RS232 port and these two sets of CMOS relay closures
you can trigger relays at each end of your codec link or connect up a computer with control software
and send control data via the RS232 channel don’t forget there is also the remote control of the talents
input audio as well this is a CAN (Control Area Network) interface to expand
the number of relays from 2 in and 2 out, to
8 in and 8 out with a Tieline Can 8×8 Accessory box this is the LAN port which will enable IP audio as well
as remote control and configuration using the Tieline
toolbox software kit. this is a USB port which can also be connected
to a computer for remote control this is a RJ11 telephone connector for voice calls
over analog telephone lines and this is the RJ11 for the built in POTS codec. in summary Tieline i-Mix G3 is more than just a remote
broadcast codec it has mixing capability, configurable communications,
send/return mix monitoring, live callers in the field,
PA outputs for monitoring or a live show programmable hotkeys, 6 different codec transports
for delivering program or communications
any where in the world as well as a complete suite of remote control
and a built in digital matrix router this replaces literally tens of thousands of dollars
worth of equipment plus countless hours of setup
and configuring all in a simple box that’s why we say it’s like an entire
remote truck in a single box i-Mix can be as simple or as complex
