Support Documentation:

Hx6 is Telos’ most advanced six-line digital Talkshow system. It features two high-performance digital hybrids and includes Telos’ famous Digital Dynamic EQ, noise gate, caller ducking and acoustic echo cancellation. Works with analog or digital phone lines (6 POTS or 3 ISDN BRI). Single-cable Ethernet hookup via Axia Livewire+ I/O, or choice of analog or AES/EBU I/O with one input and one output per hybrid, and one Program On-Hold input. Includes complimentary XScreen Lite call screening software from Broadcast Bionics.

  • Six line capacity; works with POTS (analog) or ISDN (digital) phone lines.
  • Our most advanced digital hybrids, with DSP algorithms optimized for superior performance with today's wide variety of far-end call types (VoIP, cell, POTS, app-based).
  • Telos DDEQ (Digital Dynamic EQ) and adjustable smart-level AGC ensure spectrally consistent audio from call to call - even on notoriously tough cellular calls.
  • Excellent trans-hybrid loss of >55dB.
  • Smooth, proven, symmetrical wide-range AGC by the audio processing experts at Omnia Audio.
  • Studio adaptation and a subtle, inaudible pitch shifter to prevent feedback in open-speaker studio environments.
  • A sophisticated caller override that improves performance and allows precision adjustment of the degree to which talent audio "ducks" the caller audio.
  • Striking Telos VSet6 six-line phone controllers with large, colorful VGA LCD displays that provide intuitive operation and setup. Telos-exclusive Status Symbols provide producers and talent with animated, high-contrast icons that communicate line and caller status at a glance.
  • Three different Hx6 versions matched to your choice of analog POTS phone lines, ISDN-S (Europe), or ISDN-U (North American) digital phone lines.
  • Caller ID for both analog and digital telephone connections, which is displayed on the VSet6 phoneset
  • and the included XScreen Lite call screening application.
  • Livewire+ IP-Audio allows fast, one-cable integration with Axia networks, and provides Axia board operators with seamless, on-console control of multiple lines and hybrids. Standard Ethernet backbone provides a common transport path for both studio audio and telecom needs, resulting in cost savings and a simplified studio infrastructure.
  • Choice of standard Analog I/O or optional, extra-cost AES/EBU I/O.
  • Easy setup and configuration via Ethernet using any PC and your favorite Web browser.
  • XScreen Lite call screening software from Broadcast Bionics, provided at no cost.
