Version 2.2, December, 2008
It’s been a tradition since Telos’ very first product, the
Telos 10 digital phone system, that I share a few words
with you at the beginning of each manual. So here goes.
In radio broadcast studios we’re still picking up the
pieces that have fallen out from the digital audio revolution. We’re not using cart machines anymore because
PCs are so clearly a better way to store and play audio.
We’re replacing our analog mixing consoles with digital ones and routing audio digitally. But we’re still using decades-old analog or primitive digital methods to
connect our gear. Livewire has been developed by Telos
to provide a modern PC and computer network-oriented
way to connect and distribute professional audio around
a broadcast studio facility.
Your question may be, “Why Telos? Don’t you guys
make phone stuff?” Yes, we certainly do. But we’ve always been attracted to new and better ways
to make things happen in radio facilities. And
we’ve always looked for opportunities to
make networks of all kinds work for broadcasters. When DSP was first possible, we used
it to fix the ages-old phone hybrid problem. It
was the first use of DSP in radio broadcasting.
When ISDN and MP3 first happened, we saw
the possibility to make a truly useful codec. We were the
first to license and use MP3 and the first to incorporate
ISDN into a codec. We were active in the early days of
internet audio, and the first to use MP3 on the internet.
Inventing and adapting new technologies for broadcast
is what we’ve always been about. And we’ve always
been marrying audio with networks. It’s been our passion right from the start. In our genes, if you will. As a
pioneer in broadcast digital audio and DSP, we’ve grown
an R&D team with a lot of creative guys who are openeyed to new ideas. So it’s actually quite natural that we
would be playing marriage broker to computer networks
and studio audio.
What you get from this is nearly as hot as a couple
on their wedding night: On one RJ-45, two-way multiple
audio channels, sophisticated control and data capability, and built-in computer compatibility. You can use
Livewire as a simple sound card replacement – an audio
interface connecting to a PC with an RJ-45 cable. But
add an Ethernet switch and more interfaces to build a
system with as many inputs and outputs as you want.
Audio may be routed directly from interface to interface or to other PCs, so you now have an audio routing
system that does everything a traditional “mainframe”
audio router does – but at a lot lower cost and with a lot
more capability. Add real-time mixing/processing engines and control surfaces and you have a modern studio
facility with many advantages over the old ways of doing
things. OK, maybe this is not as thrilling as a wedding
night – perhaps kissing your first lover is a better analogy. (By the way, and way off-topic, did you know that
the person you were kissing was 72.8% water?)
While we’re on the subject of history… you’ve probably been soldering XLRs for a long time, so you feel a
bit, shall we say, “attached” to them. We understand. But
no problem – you’ll be needing them for microphones
for a long while, so your withdrawal symptoms won’t be
serious. But your facility already has plenty
of Ethernet and plenty of computers, so you
probably already know your way around an
RJ-45 as well. It’s really not that strange to
imagine live audio flowing over computer networks, and there’s little question that you are
going to be seeing a lot of it in the coming
years.
The 20th century was remarkable for its tremendous
innovation in machines of all kinds: power generators,
heating and air conditioning, cars, airplanes, factory automation, radio, TV, computers. At the dawn of the 21st,
it’s clear that the ongoing digitization and networking of
text, audio, and images will be a main technology story
for decades to come, and an exciting ride for those of us
fortunate to be in the thick of it.
Speaking of years, it has been a lot of them since
I wrote the Zephyr manual intro, and even more since
the Telos 10 – 20 years now. Amazing thing is, with all
the change around us, I’m still here and Telos is still
growing in new ways. As, no doubt, are you and your
stations.

A Note From The Founder/CEO of Telos
Introduction • viii
A Note From The President of Axia
20 years ago, I designed my first broadcast console
for PR&E. I look back on that time with great fondness;
we were building bullet-proof boards for the world’s
most prestigious broadcasters, making each new console
design bigger and fancier to accommodate a wider variety of source equipment and programming styles. The
console was the core of the studio; all other equipment
was on the periphery.
Then things changed: the PC found its way into broadcast audio delivery and production. At first, PC audio
applications were simple, used only by budget stations
to reduce operating expenses. But soon the applications
evolved and were embraced by larger stations. Slowly,
the PC was taking center stage in the radio studio.
Like many, I was captivated by the PC. Stations
retired carts, phonographs, open-reel decks, cassettes
— even more modern digital equipment such
as DAT and CD players, replacing all with PC
apps. Client/server systems emerged and entire facilities began using PCs to provide most
– or all – of their recorded audio. Yet consoles
continued to treat PCs as nothing more than
audio peripherals. I knew that we console designers were going to have to rethink our designs to deal with computer-centric studios.
During this time, traditional broadcast console companies began producing digital versions. But early digital consoles were nearly identical in form and function
to their analog predecessors. It took a fresh look from a
European company outside broadcasting to merge two
products – audio routing switchers and broadcast consoles – into a central processing engine and attached
control surface. Eventually nearly every console and
routing switcher company followed suit, and a wide variety of digital “engines” and control surfaces flooded
the market.
But, advanced as these integrated systems were, they
still handled computer-based audio sources like their
analog ancestors. Sure, the router and console engine
were now integrated, but the most important studio element – the PC – was stuck in the past, interfaced with
100-year-old analog technology. The PC and console
couldn’t communicate in a meaningful way – strange,
considering that PCs everywhere were being networked,
fast becoming the world’s most popular and powerful
communication tool.
Then a group of Telos engineers developed a method
of using Ethernet to network real-time audio devices, allowing computers and consoles, controllers and peripherals to interact smoothly and intelligently. Powerful, flexible networks had finally come to our studios. As with
the transition from carts to computers, the benefits are
many and impressive. A few networked components can
replace routing switchers, consoles, processing peripherals, sound cards, distribution amps, selector switches
and myriad related devices.
This deceptively simple networked system costs a
fraction of other approaches, yet has capabilities surpassing anything else. The system is modular and can
be used to perform discrete functions in a traditional
environment. Concurrently, it easily scales to serve both
the humblest and the very largest of facilities.
Console, router, and computer work in harmony.
So, equipped with this new technology
and countless ideas, we launch Axia, the newest division of Telos. Axia is all about delivering innovative networked audio products to
future-minded broadcasters. On behalf of our
entire team, I welcome you as a charter client. Axia is
the culmination of nearly 40 man-years of some of the
most ambitious R&D ever applied to the radio industry.
And this is only the beginning. We have more products,
innovations, and partnerships in the pipeline.
You already know your Axia system is unlike anything else. So it shouldn’t be surprising that your new
system is loaded with new thinking, new approaches,
and new ideas in virtually every conceivable area. Some
concepts will challenge your traditional ideas of studio
audio systems, but we’re certain that once you have experienced the pleasures of the networked studio, you’ll
never want to go back. And now, for something completely different...

Introducing the GPIO node
This section will allow you to get to know the GPIO
node and describes the unit’s features, connectors, and
installation requirements.
This manual is written with the assumption that you
have read the Introduction to Livewire – System Design
Guide & Primer document. While the Axia Livewire
technology is easy to use in powerful ways, it does represent a radical new way of thinking for broadcasters. That
document will serve to get your feet wet and to orient
you. We highly recommend you review that document
first, before building a Livewire audio system.
Description
The GPIO Node provides the ability for logic (closure) inputs and outputs to be sent via Livewire streams.
The GPIO node has 8 groups of inputs and outputs. Each
group of Livewire closure inputs and outputs is on a separate connector and each must be assigned a Livewire
“channel”. Since GPIO closures are often associated
with specific audio stream(s) the GPIO closure channels
may, or may not, be the same as the channel number for
an audio stream.
The function of the GPIO Node is to provide 40 optically-isolated “General-Purpose I/O” ports to interface
to customer equipment, like CD players, tape decks, etc
(40 input and 40 output ports total). Any GPIO enabled
Front Panel Controls and Indicators
The Livewire GPIO node incorporates front panel indicators to allow the operator to verify proper operation
quickly and confidently.
Status LED indicators
Three LEDs indicate the status of the Ethernet connection, as well as system synchronization as follows:
POWER
Indicates that the unit is connected to AC Mains power and operating.
LINK
Indicates that the Ethernet LINK is connected correctly, and that Ethernet “Link Active” pulses are being correctly received. This does NOT mean that the
unit is transferring any data, nor is it an indicator of
the quality of the connection; simply that the Ethernet link is OK from a hardware point of view. If no
Ethernet link is present, it will flash slowly.
DATA
This tally can indicate several different states depending on whether the ID button has been pressed
in the previous 10 seconds:
•
OFF – Unit is booting up, or the processor has
stopped functioning
Version 2.2, December, 2008
1: Introducing the GPIO node • Chapter One:
device can send commands to the GPIO node over a 100
Base-TX Ethernet interface. Using these input/output
ports, it can control, or convey the status of, connected
equipment.
•
ON – Processor and system are operating normally.
DATA (After pressing ID button)
• BLINKING (slowly) – Unit in configuration process.
• ON – Unit configured, but idle.
• ON (flickering) – Unit configured and data being
transferred. The unit is operating normally.
ID Button
The I.D. button is used as part of the configuration
process. If the DATA status LED indicates that the unit
has not been configured, this button is used as part of the
configuration process. When button is pressed, it triggers
the GPIO node to identify itself and request an IP address from a BootP server on the Ethernet network (more
on this later).
IMPORTANT! As with any piece of modern electronic gear, it is advisable that precautions
be taken to prevent damage caused by power
surges. Standard line surge protectors can be
used to offer some degree of protection. It is
the user’s responsibility to ensure protection
adequate for their conditions is provided. This
equipment is designed to be operated from a
power source, which includes a third “grounding” connection in addition to the power leads.
Do not defeat this safety feature. In addition to
creating a potentially hazardous situation, defeating this safety ground will prevent the internal line noise filter from functioning. If fuse
replacement is required, please note: For continued protection against fire, replace fuse only
with same type and value. See the DETAILED
TECHNICAL INFORMATION section for information and cautions. Axia nodes are intended for
use with an Ethernet Switch that supports multicast and QOS (Quality of Service). On a nonswitched Ethernet hub, or a switch that is not
enabled for multicast, this will result in network
congestion that could disrupt other network activity.
I/O Port Connectors
Rear Panel
The rear panel of the GPIO node is pictured below:
These are 15-pin D-Sub connectors, used to provide
I/O drivers for customer devices. Eight of these connectors are available; each one providing 5 optically-isolated
inputs and 5 optically-isolated outputs for interfacing to
customer equipment.
AC (Mains) Power
1: Introducing the GPIO node • The AC receptacle connects mains power to the unit
with a standard IEC power cord. The power supply has a
“universal” AC input, accepting a range from 85 to 265
VAC, 47-63 Hz. A fuse is located inside on the power
supply circuit board.
Installation Guidelines
AC Mains Requirements
Livewire (100 Base-T) Connector
The Axia GPIO Node has an auto-configuring AC
power supply that will work with a power source between 85 to 265 volts at 47 to 63 Hz.
This connector is for connection to another Livewire
node, or an approved Ethernet switch. It has two integral
LEDs. The green “Link” LED indicates the presence of
a live signal (same as the front panel “Link” LED). The
“Activity” LED indicates that Ethernet packets are being
sent or received over the link.
It is essential that the third “grounding” pin not be defeated on the power cord and that the power cord be connected to a properly grounded receptacle. If a grounded
receptacle is not available, a qualified electrical contractor familiar with the regulations in your area should be
Version 2.2, December, 2008
contracted to install one.
Rack Mounting and Ventilation
The Axia Livewire GPIO Node is designed to be used
at ambient air temperatures between 0 to 40 degrees Celsius (32 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit) and a relative humidity of 0 to 98% non-condensing.
The GPIO node should not be placed on bedding,
carpet or other materials where the side-panel ventilation
openings could be blocked. Do not block the ventilation
openings on the top and sides of the unit.
The GPIO node is contained in a “1U” (rack unit)
19” rack-mount enclosure. The system does not contain
a cooling fan, so only convection cooling is available.
What’s Next
1: Introducing the GPIO node • Now that you know about all the GPIO Node’s controls, indicators and connections, turn to Chapter Two
and let’s hook some stuff up. Q

Version 2.2, December, 2008
Chapter Two:
Input/Output Connections
& Basic Configuration
This chapter covers the nitty gritty: the I/O connections, and how to program the IP address
The illustration shows the port connector pinouts
and functions; 5 inputs and associated common return,
5 output relays and associated common return, a +5 volt
power source, and power source ground. The 5V and
ground are connected through “solid state fuses,” which
limit the current used to less than 0.9 amp. These “solid
state fuses” go to a high-resistance state during over current conditions, and return to a low resistance state when
circuit faults are removed.
Input Connections
The rear panel of the Axia Livewire GPIO terminal
has eight 15 pin connectors labeled 1 to 8. Each connector has 5 opto-isolated inputs and 5 solid state relay
outputs. Each port can be assigned to a Livewire channel (see the “Introduction to Livewire: System Design
Reference & Primer” reference for more on Livewire
channels). For convenience, a port can be assigned to
the same channel used for related audio, or they can be
assigned a unique channel if desired.
GPIOs can be used independently. By entering <ip
address>/<port number> of each port on GPIO “A” will
be mapped to the outputs of the matching port on GPIO
“B”. This permits easy extension of contact closures
throughout the facility over the Livewire network. Just
as with audio nodes, two GPIO nodes may be connected
with an Ethernet crossover cable rather than a switch to
form a “GPIO snake” See Chapter 3 for more details.
Current on these inputs must be limited to 20 mA, or
less, through the use of a current-limiting resistor. Recommended current-limiting resistors are as follows:
Input Voltage (VDC)
External Series
Resister Required
5-6
None
12
680 Ohm @ _ Watt
24
1.8K Ohm @ _ Watt
An external power source (24 volts DC maximum)
is recommended for all inputs and outputs, to prevent
ground loops between equipment. However, if customer
equipment is completely isolated (see below for more on
this), then using power from the GPIO Port connectors is
acceptable. See Figure 2-1 (next page) for details of both
types of connections.
Version 2.2, December, 2008
2: Input/Output Connections & Basic Configuration • Optically Isolated I/O Ports
2: Input/Output Connections & Basic Configuration • Figure 2-1: GPIO Input Connections
Output Connections
The Axia Livewire terminal’s outputs are opto-isolated. Current should be limited 100 mA through each
output, with the total current draw from the +5 Volt supply not to exceed 3 amps.
See Figure 2-2 for recommended connections for
outputs. The drawing shows only DC connections, and
as with the inputs, it is strongly recommended that customers provide the power (24 Volts DC maximum) for
these output devices. Only if the controlled devices are
Completely Electrically Isolated can they be powered by
the internal 5V power source (read on for details).
Version 2.2, December, 2008
A few words on equipment isolation & ground loops.
The diagrams in the previous two pages illustrate how
users can connect their remotely-controlled devices to
the GPIO’s I/O connectors. However, a bit of explanation is needed here about the concept of “isolation”.
Version 2.2, December, 2008
2: Input/Output Connections & Basic Configuration • Figure 2-2: GPIO CPU Output Connections
2: Input/Output Connections & Basic Configuration • The fact that the GPIO node has opto-isolators on all
of its input and output pins does not necessarily mean
that the customers’ equipment is actually “isolated” from
the GPIO node. “Grounds loops” and “fault currents”
can still exist, depending on how the installer powers
these I/O connections. (Refer back to the drawing for
details.) On both the “Input” and the “Output” drawings, the top half of the diagram shows the I/O interfaces
being powered from the customer’s equipment. This is
the preferred approach as there is no connection between
the “ground” on the GPIO node and the user-equipment
“ground” of the remotely-controlled device. This is the
ideal situation, and is the one that Axia recommends.
IMPORTANT NOTE! If the +5V and “Ground”
connections on the GPIO 15-pin connector are
used to power I/O devices (as shown on the
bottom half of the drawings in the previous two
sections), the grounds of the GPIO node and the
customer’s equipment will be connected together. Therefore, if the GPIO node and the remotely-controlled equipment do not share the same
ground (i.e. if they are not powered off of the
same outlet strip, for example), a ground loop
will be created, and ground loop currents will be
created. Therefore, using the GPIO’s +5V power
for I/O connections is only recommended if the
user’s remotely controlled equipment and the
GPIO node are certain to have the same ground
potential.
The GPIO’s +5V power and “GROUND” (pins
8 and 9 on the 15-pin connectors) are current limited
through solid-state resettable fuses to less than 0.9
Amps. This protects both the GPIO node and customer
equipment from potentially hazardous currents if severe
ground loops are accidentally created between the two
units. The GPIO 5 Volt power supply is rated to deliver
a maximum 3 amps total for user purposes. The installer
should keep this limit is mind and use external power
supplies if necessary.
single 15-pin I/O port, you must make sure that
the two units in question have the same ground
potential or ground loops will occur. Therefore,
it recommended that only one remotely device
be connected to each I/O port connector to assure complete electrical isolation. If multiple
devices are connected to a single I/O port there
is no over current protection. If it is necessary
to more than one device to a single I/O port,
then you must ensure that the two units share
a common ground before the interconnections
are made.
Assigning an IP Address
The node’s IP address can be remotely assigned over
the network using a program included with your node
called BootP. To do so follow these steps:
1. From the CD-Rom that came with your Node, start
bootps.exe on any Windows 2000/XP PC.
2. Press the ID button on GPIO front panel. You will be
prompted for a new IP address entry:
3. Enter new IP address and press ENTER:
Make note of the IP address you have entered, so
that you can access the Node using a Web browser (as
described in Chapter 3). You may continue to assign
additional Node IP addresses, or shut down the BootP
program.
What’s Next
In the next chapter, we’ll learn about how to use your
Web browser to program the GPIO Node. Q
IMPORTANT NOTE! All of the inputs and outputs
on a specific GPIO I/O port are “grouped together”. The 5 “Outputs” are on 5 separate output
pins, however, they share the same “Common
Return” connection on Pin #7. Similarly, the 5
“Inputs” pins are pulled to ground to activate
them, and they share a common high-side rail,
in common, on Pin #10. If more than one remotely-controlled device is to be connected a

Advanced Programming
A number of parameters may be configured using
the Livewire GPIO node’s built in web pages. To access
the built in web server from a computer, the computer
and node must be connected to the same LAN (or the
computer and node can be connected using a “crossover
10/100 Base-T” Ethernet cable).
To connect: enter the following in your browser:
http://123.456.789.101
the computer and the node must match, or additional configuration will be required. ­Microsoft
Internet Explorer versions 5 and later, and
Firefox version 1 and higher have been tested
with the Livewire GPIO Node. Other browsers
may work, however they have not been tested.
Your browser must have Java enabled and must
allow “pop up” windows.
The GPIO Node Home Page
Once you have logged in you will see the Axia GPIO
node home page. The home page simply acts as an access point, to permit access to each of the other configuration pages. We describe each of those pages in detail.
The GPIO Page
Enter a valid user name and password and click on
“OK” to log in.
The GPIO web screen, shown above, is used to configure each of the 8 input/output ports. Each port must
be assigned a name and a Livewire channel. These are
two-way channels. (For more about Livewire channels see the Introduction to Livewire: System Design
Reference & Primer manual available for download at
AxiaAudio.com .)
The default user name for all Axia nodes is: user
The default password for all Axia nodes is: <enter>
An alternative syntax is also supported in the “Channel” field:
Your browser should now display the login window
to allow you to access the node:

NOTE: The IP range (e.g. the first three numbers of the four numbers of the IP address of
<ip address>/<port number>
It allows creating “GPIO snakes”. The ip address
indicates source GPIO unit. Port number determines
port on the source unit (1 through 8). Communication
established this way is unidirectional. As it is shown on
the screenshot above, port 8 outputs mimic input port
(number 4) on 192.168.2.162/4. Careful readers noticed
that the connection had been made within the same unit;
although any unit on the network can be specified as a
GPIO source this way.
Figure 3-1: The GPIO HTTP Screen
To create a two-way “Snake”, in addition to the oneway configuration we made, enter the destination unit’s
IP address and port number in the source unit’s configuration.

program, but it can be changed here, if needed. The setting in most cases is 255.255.255.0 .
The System Parameters Page
The Systems Parameters page, shown on the next
page, allows configuring the node’s IP address and related settings. It also permits choosing between a primary
and secondary bank of software, and downloading new
software into the secondary bank. The currently running
software version is displayed here as well. You must
click the Apply button for changes to take place.
NOTE: If you change this setting you may lose
your browser connection when you click Apply,
and will need to reconfigure the computer’s
subnet mask to a proper value.
Gateway (Router)
If this node is connecting to an outside network enter
the gateway IP address. This is not typically used.
IP Settings
These are the usual IP-related
settings. Your network administrator should be able to provide
the needed values. Each unit must
have a unique IP address. For
more detail on these see Introduction to Livewire.
3: Advanced Programming • 10
Host name
The alphanumeric name for
this node, spaces are NOT allowed. This is used to identify the
node on the network. You may
wish to include the location of
the node (studio and rack) in the
name for future reference.
Figure 3-1: The System HTTP Screen
Network address (IP Address)
The IP address of the node is entered here. Each
Livewire node must have a unique IP address. The only
exception is when two nodes are connected in the pointto-point (snake) configuration. This is set using the BootP
program (see section 2, above), but it can be checked or
changed here, if needed.
NOTE: If you change this setting you will lose
your browser connection when you click Apply,
and will need to reconnect using the new IP address.
Netmask (Subnet mask)
This is the IP subnet mask of the local unit. Normally
this would be set using the front panel or using the Bootp
Syslog Server (IP address)
Various services generate syslog (RFC 3164) messages, which can be forwarded to remote daemon. Remote syslog daemon IP address can be entered on System WEB page.
Syslog severity level filter
User can customize logging by choosing log detail
level:
• Emergency: system is unusable
• Alert: action must be taken immediately
• Critical: critical condition
• Error: error conditions
• Warning: warning conditions
• Notice: normal but significant condition
• Informational: informational messages
Version 2.2, December, 2008
Debug: debug-level messages
Only messages with severity higher than specified by
the filter will be forwarded to the remote logger.
Firmware version
An Axia node has two internal memory “banks”.
Each bank contains room for a complete version of operating software. This approach allows a software update
download to be completed and checked without danger
of making the unit inoperable if the download were to be
incomplete or corrupted. It also provides and easy way
to try a new software version and still return to the old
version.
The software version in each bank is displayed here.
To change banks simply click in the “radio button” for
the desired bank and then click on Apply.
IMPORTANT! The node will reboot after you click
Apply if you change the software version. This
will result in loss of GPIO locally, and at any unit
using the local sources.
load the desired software update for your node to
your computer (this should be the computer that you
will use to access the node’s web page).
• Your local computer operating system should display
a prompt to permit you to choose where you wish
to locate the downloaded file. You can choose any
convenient location; just be sure to note the drive and
location where the file is to be saved.
• Open a web browser and connect to the node to be
updated. Click on the Browse button to locate the file
you downloaded. Once the proper path and filename
are displayed, click on Apply to upload the file to the
GPIO node.
A successful upload will be indicated by the new version being displayed in the Bank 1 field. If the upload
was unsuccessful, the field for Bank 1 would be blank.
To run the new software, click on Bank 1 and then
click Apply to reboot the node.
IMPORTANT! The node will reboot after you click
Apply if you change the software version. This
will result in loss of GPIO locally, and at any unit
using the local sources.
Saving Bank 1 Software
Software is always downloaded to bank 1 (the secondary bank). Downloading software to the Node will
overwrite the software currently in this bank, if any. If
you wish to save the software currently residing in bank
1, you can save it by moving it to bank 0 as follows:
• Click on Commit this version to Bank 0” box (see
below).
• Click on Apply. The node will now reboot. Your
browser will reconnect automatically when boot is
complete.
IMPORTANT! The node will reboot after you click
Apply if you change the software version. This
will result in loss of GPIO locally, and at any unit
using the local sources.
Downloading new software
To download new software to Bank 1, follow these
steps:

Device Profiles
When configuring your Element or SmartSurface
system, you can assign a Source type that then creates a
standard I/O profile for inputs and outputs on the associated GPIO node. For more on this, consult documentation appropriate to your audio console. We list the available profiles on the following pages for your reference
while installing the GPIO node.
Troubleshooting
Here are some basic troubleshooting tips that might
prove useful. Don’t forget that the manual Introduction
to Livewire; System Design Reference & Primer should
be your companion and has many useful tips. If you
