Telos Hx-1 Digital Telephone Hybrid.
POTS phones never sounded so good.
In the mid-1980s, Telos pioneered the very first digital adaptivetelephone hybrid. Since then, our POTS phone hybrids haveearned a worldwide reputation for extracting clean, clear calleraudio from even the most difficult calls.
We've pioneered plenty of improvements to POTS hybrid technologyin the past 20 years, and the Telos Hx1 and Hx2 representthe highest state-of-the-art in hybrid performance. Advancesin DSP have been pretty great as well. We've used every bit ofknowledge gained to make Hx1 and Hx2 the best, most advancedPOTS hybrids we've ever made, without much doubt.
Inside the single-hybrid Hx1 and dual-hybrid Hx2, you'll find Telosprocessing technologies that take the POTS hybrid to a new levelof consistently superior performance, regardless of telephone linecharacteristics. This advanced hybrid technology brings newstandard features that sweeten and control caller audio betterthan ever beforefeatures you won't find in other POTS hybrids.
Hx1 and Hx2 have Auto-Answer, caller disconnect detection,sophisticated new audio-leveling and anti-feedback routinesfor enhanced open-speaker applications, call screening and lineholdfeatures, and front-panel send and receive audio metering- plus much, much more.Audio processing tools include a new symmetrical wide-rangeAGC and noise gate by Omnia, with adjustable gain settings to helpkeep caller audio smooth and consistent from call to call. Studioadaptation and a subtle pitch-shifter help prevent feedback inopen-speaker situations. Adjustable caller override improvesperformance even further, and allows you to individualize thedegree to which the announcer ducks the caller audio. Finally, our
famous Digital Dynamic EQ, coupled with an adjustable smartleveler, keeps audio spectrally consistent from call to call.
On the front panel, you'll find EQ Meters for each hybrid, to tell youexactly how much DDEQ is being applied. Next to those, separateSend and Receive level meters monitor each hybrid. There's alsoan animated line status display that visually indicates when a lineis ringing in, on air, on hold or available. A complement of Take,Hold and Drop buttons complete the front-panel control set.
Around back, you'll find a switchable mic/line input, balancedanalog receive-out output, RJ ports for telco input and phoneset,input level adjustment, and a DB9 remote control connectorwith GPIO closures for hybrid control and status indicator lamps.Need digital I/O? No problem - Hx comes in an AES/EBU versionwith built-in sample-rate converter.
