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 Integrates Ravenna module

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.

VIDEO Highlights Pretalk Streaming Feature on AVT Telephone Hybrids

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.

AES67 integrated into AVT Telephone Hybrids

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.
