NEW AVT Scalable Telephone Hybrid & Audio Codec Software Solution

The new MAGIC Server by AVT expands their telephone hybrid portfolio with a scalable, software-based telephone hybrid & audio codec server.

AVT_MAGICServer_ software-solution_Dashboard_TEVIOS

With MAGIC Server, MAGIC telephone hybrids and audio codecs are available as a centralized, scalable software solution. As AVT explains: “The integration supports all functionalities of the hardware system and integrates MAGIC Collaboration Services for MS Teams and WebRTC connectivity which were introduced at IBC 2022.”

In addition to the MAGIC Server Software, just a regular server or VM is required.

Two versions of MAGIC Server will be available:

MAGIC Server Basic

  • 1-8 VoIP telephone channels
  • 1-8 web operating clients
  • 1-2 studios

Integrate two stereo Audio Codecs and Collaboration Services such as WebRTC or MS Teams for high-quality audio and video transmissions. This makes two lines OPUS-, PCM-, WebRTC– and MS Teams-capable.

MAGIC Server Professional

  • 8 to 96 VoIP telephone hybrid channels
  • 24 studios with 48 application-specific web control clients
  • 48 recording booths (News Desks) for telephone interviews
  • 6 Intercom groups for communication with correspondents or remote stations

Use up to 24 channels for high-quality stereo audio transmissions (OPUS, PCM), and add 48 audio or 24 audio/video WebRTC / MS Teams collaboration services.

In other words, MAGIC Server Professional makes it easy to expand the system whenever necessary.

Witness this scalable telephone hybrid & audio codec software solution firsthand at IBC 2023, stand 8.F76.

AVT Announces MAGIC Collaboration Server with Video

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.

“Best in Show” for AVT’s New Video Feature for Telephone Hybrids

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:

MAGIC TH1Go – 1 channel

  • Single-hybrid with analogue audio interfaces
  • Digital echo canceller, AGC (automatic gain control) and expander
  • Pretalk via analogue telephone or second audio interface

MAGIC TH2plus – 2 channels

  • 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.”

New MAGIC THipPro Lite Telephone Hybrids by AVT

The MAGIC THipPro 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
  • GPIO contacts
  • 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.

Telephone Hybrids by AVT Support Microsoft Teams

AVT is expanding their VoIP MAGIC telephone hybrid systems by enabling connection to the Microsoft Teams collaboration software.


Soon, calls made with AVT solutions via Microsoft Teams will be just as easy as classic phone calls. Plus, they will include all familiar features: PRETALK, HOLD and ON AIR. Search directly through the MAGIC THipPro LANphone book for MS Teams users within the organization. Displaying scheduled meetings makes participation simple and easy.

Thanks to the widespread use of MS Teams, integrate reporters and correspondents into live broadcasts in the best HD Voice audio quality.

MAGIC Collaboration Server, the new Windows PC application, runs as a service on a (virtual) server, establishing the connection to the MS Teams Server. A full version of Microsoft Teams, included in most Microsoft 365 plans, is the only requirement for using the feature.

Contact us for more information about when various AVT telephone hybrid models will support Microsoft Teams.

AVT Introduces new MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge

The MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge by AVT is a multi-channel PCM system that enables transmission of up to 32 uncompressed audio signals via wide area networks (WAN). This enables Dante Network connections over large distances.

AVT_MAGIC Dante WAN Bridge_audiotransmission_TEVIOS

More specifically, 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. What’s more, manage up to 10 systems (including graphic surveillance) from 5 workplaces thanks to the 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).

Marketing & Sales Assistant Lukas Mahler presents the AVT MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge:
