Commander G3 Studio Rack Mount

Overview

Tieline Commander G3 IP codecs are amongst the world’s most
successful and widely used codecs for remote broadcasts,
studio-to-transmitter links and audio contribution. The new TLR300B
Commander G3 is a 2RU studio codec with comprehensive front panel
hardware controls.

All Commander G3 codecs are EBU
N/ACIP Tech 3326 compatible over IP and the company is committed to
developing new IP and 3GIP applications that take advantage
of emerging network infrastructures around the globe.

2RU Commander G3

2RU Front Large

The 2RU Commander features two balanced XLR inputs with both
front and rear panel headphone outputs and mic inputs. It also has
four front panel PPM meters that can display send, return or
selected channel audio levels. The screen features real time link
information and all controls are available at a touch of a button,
or they can be locked out.

Free PC Control Software

2 FREE software packages are supplied with each
Tieline Commander G3 rack-mount codec. The Tieline ToolBox PC
software package provides the ability to configure your codec to
suit each broadcast.

The TLG3 GUI software controller emulates the hardware front
panel of the 2 RU Commander G3. It can be used to control 2RU
codecs using USB or RS-232 serial connections, or either local area
networks or the internet. This advanced software GUI can control
all normal codec functions such as dialing, menu navigation, audio
monitoring and level controls..

Digital AES/EBU Inputs = Unsurpassed Audio Quality

Commander G3 IP codecs offer a choice between analog or digital
input modules – so now you can capture crystal clear digital audio
and keep it in the digital domain using Tieline’s AES/EBU
input/output modules.

You can choose either an analog two input/output card with XLR
connectors or an AES/EBU two input/output card on XLR connectors.
AES/EBU clock choices include internal clock, external AES/EBU
clock and external word clock. Tieline has also implemented an
automatic failover from the selected external clock to the internal
clock in the event of an external clock failure.

When purchasing any TLR300B codec you can choose any single
input/output card and it will be included in the price of the codec
(i.e. there will be no additional cost to the rack-mount price for
the first card you choose).

1. Analogue 2 in 2 out interface (Part No: TLANA2IN2OUT)

Analog input card for Rack Mount Codec- Analog Commander Rack
Mount codec input card. Featuring 2 input and 2 output on XLR
connectors plus balanced Aux in/out on 6.35mm (1/4″) jack. Balanced
Aux out may also be used as a headphone out.

2. AES EBU 3ID interface (Part No: TLAESEBU3ID)

Digital Input Card for Rack Mount Codec:- AES/EBU Digital Card
with 2 in and 2 out balanced AES3 on (XLR) plus unbalanced (BNC)
AES3 (jumper selectable) with unbalanced word clock input as AES3
output sync reference.

Redundancy through Automatic failover

This powerful software option provides automatic switching from
one network to another in the event of a link failure. For example,
if your IP link fails it can automatically switch to a backup POTS,
ISDN or 3G link. This provides great peace of mind for
studio-to-transmitter links and live remote broadcasts in
particular.

Flexible Connections and Control

All Commander IP codecs feature serial, USB and LAN interfaces.
Two GPIO relay control inputs and two outputs (expandable to 8
using the optional Tieline CAN8+8 relay box) offer a variety of
internal audio matrix routing and external machine controls. Front
panel hotkeys can be programmed to trigger relay and routing state
changes, or external relay devices can be interfaced to trigger
machine control at either end of your link. RS-232 or raw control
data can also be sent via the codec serial port and delivered to
the other end of your codec link for external machine control.

Commander G3 is still the only codec to enable control of remote
codec audio inputs from the studio, so your announcers no longer
have to worry about understanding correct audio input levels. You
can control one remote audio input or gang all remote audio inputs
to a single control in the studio.
