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.

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.

Seamlessly integrated into MAGIC∙THipPro, this video feature will be available in all AVT telephone hybrid systems. With the click of a button, transfer video and audio signal to a video playout using NDI protocol. The video function is shown completely in a web browser, instead of in the classic MAGIC THipPro LAN Windows PC client.
Currently, AVT systems support video calls via Microsoft Teams.

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.

Just as most AVT systems have the software-based AES67 integration and the Dante module, now the RAVENNA module is available on select AVT systems!
Offering the Ravenna solution provides users the best possible integration in their studio environments. Integration into large AoIP networks is significantly simplified, thanks to the new module’s support of the NMOS specifications for Discovery & Registration and Device Connection Management.
Currently, the MAGIC RAVENNA module is available on the VoIP telephone hybrid system MAGIC THipPro. Once the module is equipped, 32 x 32 additional audio channels are available via IP, which can then be distributed to up to 32 network streams. Plus, continue to utilize the analogue and digital audio interfaces of the MAGIC THipPro.
Soon the Quad DAB+ Encoder MAGIC AE4 and the DAB Ensemble Multiplexer MAGIC DABMUX plus will also include the MAGIC RAVENNA module.
In order to guarantee high compatibility with other systems, the AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30/31 standards are also supported.
Finally, integrated stream redundancy for all ST 2022-7 classes effectively prevents interruptions in the audio signal caused by network problems.
Contact us for more information about the Ravenna module now available on AVT systems.
In their new series Lukas Explains, Lukas Mahler, Marketing & Sales Assistant at AVT, showcases the Pretalk Streaming Feature available for all AVT Telephone Hybrids.
Telephone Hybrids convert an incoming phone call into an audio signal suitable for the studio environment. Three different line interfaces are often used: POTS (analogue telephone lines), ISDN or ethernet interfaces using voice over IP technology.
By implementing the AES67 transmission standard into its telephone hybrids, AVT facilitates the integration of these systems into modern IP-based studio environments.
This upgrade ensures communication between AES67-compatible Ravenna and Dante devices. It has been tested with DANTE, LAWO and MERGING AeS67-enabled systems. Thanks to this upgrade, MAGIC TH1Go and MAGIC TH2plus provide four audio channels while MAGIC TH6 and MAGIC THipPro provide eight audio channels. Naturally, the existing audio interfaces can still be used.
This added functionality is provided in a fee-based software update. It’s not necessary to adjust any hardware. The only limitation is that AES67 cannot be used together with ISDN.
Contact us for more information about upgrading your AVT telephone hybrid to the AES67 audio transmission standard.
