AVT releases its MAGIC Collaboration Server with Video! With the MAGIC Collaboration Server, the MAGIC telephone hybrids enable connection to Microsoft Teams collaboration software. In other words, an integrated video signal joins the list of current functions.
The MAGIC Collaboration Server is available in a modular approach. Use it for audio only or with the addition of a video signal. Thanks to the Satin Codec used in MS Teams, the quality is independent from the network infrastructure.
At this time, Microsoft Teams calls are possible in the same, simple workflow as normal calls. The video signal is displayed directly in the user interface and can also be output via NDI.
Support for Web-RTC will be added later this year to make the MAGIC Collaboration Server even more versatile.

The digital broadcast technology DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) broadband system allows users to transmit several programmes from one or more programme provider in one Ensemble.
AVT manufactures a variety of DAB systems, offering complete solutions for DAB headends.
Digital Audio Broadcasting, the successor of analogue radio, has significant advantages including: efficient distribution options, various data services such as SlideShow for album covers, SPI(EPG), TPEG for extended traffic information etc., and noise-free audio programs.
Create 15-20 audio programmes by multiplexing a single frequency within an ensemble. Install hardware-based DAB/DAB+ Audio Encoders separately and directly from the program providers. Achieve the best possible audio quality by avoiding multiple coding in the input. Program providers who are also ensemble providers and broadcast several programs can set up software-based Audio Encoders directly on the Ensemble Multiplexer or use single or multi-channel hardware Audio Encoders.
The central system of a DAB headend is the Ensemble Multiplexer. AVT offers four different systems ranging from small-scale DAB multiplexers to professional DAB multiplexers on DSP base or based on the Fraunhofer ContentServer.
Monitor an ensemble multiplex with the ETI/EDI Monitoring Decoder. For more in-depth analysis of the DAB signal, a wired ETI/EDI analyser with integrated ensemble recorder and player is available.
And finally, the DSP-based, highly available and maintenance-free Tunnel Break-In System with integrated modulator & remodulator offers a voice break-in for up to two independent ensembles.
Contact us to learn more about the DAB/DAB+ solutions by AVT.
Audio Codecs are required for high-quality audio transmissions over various networks including IP, ISDN, 2-Mbit/s (E1) and X.21. Over IP and ISDN, use both Leased Line and temporary dial-up connections with AVT’s audio codecs.
The various applications for Audio Codecs include: reporting, studio programme contribution & distribution, and Studio-Transmitter-Links.
One of the popular Audio Codecs by AVT is the MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge. This multi-channel PCM system enables transmission of up to 32 uncompressed audio signals via wide area networks (WAN). In other words, it enables Dante Network connections over large distances. The coding is done via PCM16/PCM24/PCM32. The integrated 32-channel Dante interface provides audio connection for the audio inputs/outputs. It also features redundant GbE interfaces and supports AES67. Manage up to 10 systems from five workplaces thanks to its user-friendly operating software.
Limited maximum latency of Dante in wide area networks, high jitter and possible time differences can make reliable transmission difficult. The MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge solves these issues by offering a jitter buffer that includes an automatic mode and intelligent sample rate adaption (SRA).

AVT Audio Visual Technologies’s new video feature for their MAGIC Telephone Hybrids won “Best in Show 2022” at IBC – International Broadcasting Convention!
Telephone Hybrids, also known as Talkshow Systems, convert incoming calls into audio signals which are suitable in the studio environment. Typically three different line interfaces are used: POTS (analogue telephone lines), ISDN or Ethernet interfaces using Voice over IP technology.
AVT offers multiple MAGIC telephone hybrids with this award-winning video feature:
Digital echo canceller, AGC and expander for each channel
PC software with screening function
Pretalk function: connect up to two handsets or headsets
A “Pro” version as well as a new “Lite Pro” version also exist of the MAGIC telephone hybrids.
The RedTech News awards acknowledge “outstanding technological innovation within the radio and digital audio space.”

The MAGICTHipPro Lite telephone hybrids by AVT are based on the THipPro hardware, but with a reduced range of functions. They are available with 4 or 8 caller lines and have two LAN interfaces used for control and VoIP calls (option). Alternatively, integrate POTS modules to provide 4 or 8 POTS interfaces for connection to analogue telephone lines. Enable the line interfaces via the VoIP & HD Voice option or the integration of POTS modules.
THipPro Lite has four digital audio lines (two AES/EBU interfaces) and two analogue audio inputs & outputs. An extension to eight digital audio lines (four AES/EBU interfaces) is also available (option), as are two handset/headset interfaces. Optionally, the AES67 upgrade allows the use of eight additional audio channels (8 x RX (2 streams) and 8 x TX (1 stream)) via IP. Alternatively, use a Ravenna or Dante module (option). Assign the audio interfaces as desired to 6 installed workplaces (one licence is included) and 2 studios.
Three Operating Modes
Use the system in three operating modes. In one fader mode all callers set to ON AIR are switched to conference/available on the selected audio output as a mixed signal. Automatically generate N-1 signal for each caller line. In two faders mode there are two ON AIR lines. Callers can be output on separate audio outputs or switched to a common audio line in conference. And finally in four or eight faders mode define a separate ON AIR line for each caller. Each caller is available on a separate audio output. Mix via the mixing console.
Finally, use the telephone hybrid for two studios in one-fader, two-fader or four- or eight-fader operation. Display only the selected caller lines in each studio with each studio having its own ON AIR and PRETALK lines.
Overall features include:
Digital echo canceller, AGC and expander for each caller line
PC software with screening function
HOLD signal: external, recorder or ON AIR
Support of Ember+ protocol and DHD SetLogic IDs
Dante/Ravenna/AES67 upgrade for additional audio lines
MAGIC THipPro Pure Lite
For those who no longer require conventional audio interfaces, the MAGIC THipPro Pure Lite variant is available. Use the optional AES67 software upgrade or the Dante or Ravenna module for audio connection.
