the hybrid
professionals. With
the Telos TWO, the
world’s first telephone
hybrid that works with digital phone
lines (BRI/U or S), users can exploit the
ability of the ISDN network to
cross-connect with POTS
lines, eliminating the studio
side of Telco A/D and D/A.
You have clean, pure digital
caller audio, right from the
Central Office—along with
truly independent send and
receive paths, lower noise
and distortion, faster call setup and
caller ID functionality.
TELOS TWO
ISDN HYBRID
Besides ISDN connectivity, Telos TWO
gives other important advantages: the
slim Telos TWO case contains two
2
digital hybrids, so you can conference
two callers internally. No extra hybrid
needed—because it’s already there. Of
course, all mixing and conferencing is
done completely in the digital domain.
AES/EBU as well as analog outputs give
you maximum output flexibility. And builtin Ethernet connectivity makes easy
work of remote control and software
upgrades.
Telos TWO: superior Telos technology
brings the power and clarity of
ISDN to you.

ance—for good
reason. Our advanced
ISDN hybrid technology consists of an integrated suite of
audio processing functions that help
you achieve unsurpassed audio quality.
FEATURES &
BENEFITS
■ 2-RU package includes two high
performance digital telephone hybrids.
Conference linking ability lets you set
up high-quality conferencing between
callers with no external equipment—
only a single mix-minus is required.
■ Studio-grade 20-bit A-to-D conversion, combined with noise gating and
shaping, guarantees superb send-tocaller audio.
■ Simultaneous baseband analog and
AES/EBU outputs.
■ Automatic high-precision sample rate
conversion on incoming ISDN calls.
■ Unmatched Send/Receive separation
using Telos’ time-tested Adaptive
Cancellation technology. Each hybrid
automatically adjusts to phone line
conditions, virtually eliminating the hollowness, feedback and distortion that occurs
when send audio "leaks" into the caller
output signal.
■ Sophisticated AGC/limiting functions
and three-band Digital Dynamic
Equalization ensure consistent caller
audio levels and spectral consistency.
Easy to use front-panel menus, meters
and keypad make setup and operation
simple.
■ Caller ID support and fully adjustable
Caller Ducking helps hosts stay in control.
■ Built-in Ethernet and RS-232 ports for
remote control and easy software
upgrades.

Telos TWO lends itself
to an almost infinite
variety of uses.
■ Radio station production facilities can
use the Telos TWO in the assembly of
pre-produced talk programs, interviews,
infomercials and other commercial
productions.
■ The Telos TWO can be used to
provide IFB for radio station remote
broadcasts or promotional
appearances where the
codec abilities of a Telos

are not necessary.
■ Audio production companies can use
the Telos TWO to record voiceovers
from talent located outside the studio,
or for previewing material recorded at
another location.
■ Corporations can utilize the Telos
TWO for boardroom teleconferencing
applications, conference room settings
or remote employee training sessions.
■ Telos TWO fits perfectly with schools,
colleges or other educational or institutional enterprises utilizing distance
learning programs.
Clear, easy-to-use front panel controls

TALK DIGITAL
TO ME
It’s the only
I
ntegrated
Services Digital
Network (ISDN)
is a set of international
standards for digital
way to go
transmission over ordinary telephone copper
wire (as well as over
other media). Presently, the dial-up
telephone network is nearly entirely
digital, except for the "last mile" copper
connections from the Central Office to
the customer’s site. Telos’ new ISDN
hybrids take advantage of this technology to deliver crystal clear caller audio
to the radio studio.
While the application of digital signal
processing to the problem of separating
host and caller audio—pioneered by
Telos and used in all of our ISDN hybrid
interfaces—has made a dramatic
improvement over pure analog
systems, using digital phone lines for
incoming calls further improves performance for several reasons:
➧
Even though it takes two separate
circuits—one send and one receive
circuit—to transmit telephone audio,
traditional analog lines multiplex both
circuits in order to use a single pair of
wires. This causes what’s referred to as
"leakage"—when the announcer’s audio
is present on the hybrid output, creating
an annoying "hollow" sound. A "fourwire" circuit has two wire pairs, and
therefore two independent audio paths.
Digital circuits are designed to always
offer independent and separated signal
paths. (Though a digital circuit may
today not use wires at all, but rather
fiber, or microwave radio, or satellite,
telephone engineers, bowing to tradition, continue to refer to all separated
speech paths as being "four-wire.")

■ Lower Noise.
Analog lines are
exposed to a variety
of noise and impulse
trouble-causers as
they move across
town on poles and
through your building.
Hum is the main one,
owing to line proximity to pole transformers and power lines, but there are
also sources of impulse noise from
motors, switches, and other electrical
activity. By contrast, digital circuits
aren’t susceptible to induced noise;
digital lines convey the bits precisely
and accurately from the phone network
to your studio equipment without any
inductive disturbance, so the audio
remains clean. Even when the caller is
using an analog phone line to call in, the
noticeably quieter digital connection
between the hybrid and the telephone
network helps the hybrid achieve better
rejection of outgoing audio leakage.
■ Elimination of D-to-A conversion.
The analog-digital conversion equipment used in telephone central offices
is of poor quality compared to the con-
6
verters used in professional audio
equipment. Using a digital phone line
enables you to maintain a digital path
all the way from the caller’s CO to your
studio equipment—requiring only the
initial conversion to digital, and doing
away with the need to reconvert from
digital to analog audio. (AES/EBU
outputs are provided in the Telos Two
ISDN hybrid, TWO-x-Twelve Talk Show
System, and Series 2101 Talk Show
System to help accomplish this direct
connection to digital studio gear.)
■ Higher Gain and Reduced
Feedback During Multi-line
Conferencing. When conferencing is
required on 2-wire circuits, very good
hybrids are needed to separate the
two audio paths in order to add gain in
each direction. When the gain around
the loop exceeds unity, the unpleasant
result is feedback. Since the conference
path usually includes four AGC functions, the hybrid must be able to cover
the additional gain that may be dynamically inserted. Because of the 4-wire
nature of digital telephone lines, the
hybrid function is more effective–and
more reliably so across a variety of
calls. That means more gain can be
inserted between calls before feedback
becomes a problem.
■ Better Line Monitoring, Call Setup
and Supervision. On an analog line,
one discovers a problem only from a
failed attempt to use the line. Digital
phone lines maintain a full-time connection between the Central Office and
your studio on the "D" channel, so you
can quickly detect when a line is a not
working.
■ Furthermore, the sophisticated
transactions on the "D" channel keep
both ends of a call accurately informed
about line status. For starters, digital
lines feature call set-up times of only a
few milliseconds, enhancing production
of a fast-paced show. More importantly,
when a caller disconnects while waiting
on hold, this status change is communicated instantly (contrasted with the
usual 11-second delay on most analog
lines). One of the most common complaints of talk hosts is that they go to a
line where they expect a caller, only to
find a blaring, annoying dial tone. The
chance of this happening with a digital
line is close to zero.
