Tieline Announces New Gateway-4 IP Codec

Tieline has announced the addition of the new Gateway-4 IP audio codec to its range of professional IP audio codecs. Shipping March!

Gateway-4 Replaces Merlin and Genie STL Codecs:

The Gateway-4 supersedes Tieline’s Merlin and Genie STL codecs – It supports 4 full-duplex audio channels* in 1RU to expand channel density by one when compared with these codecs.






Reminder: Gateway-8 and Gateway-16 codecs supersede the Merlin PLUS and Genie Distribution codecs. Production of the Merlin and Genie families of codecs has ceased. Tieline will continue to provide support and software updates for all Merlin and Genie codecs.


The Gateway-4 provides two stereo connections, or one stereo and two mono connections, or up to 4 mono full duplex connections. The Gateway-4 also supports multiple unicasting to up to 20 endpoints and multicasting.


Gateway-4 supports 4 simultaneous full-duplex remotes

The Gateway-4 is designed for solutions requiring between 2 and 4 audio streaming channels, plus unrivaled redundancy features and remote configuration and control. Customers with higher channel requirements will gravitate towards the Gateway-8/16 multi-channel codec.”

For larger networks, the Gateway-4 is ideal for transmitter sites, remote trucks or rack-mounted remote kits. For affiliates and smaller stations it can be used to transport studio-to-studio links, or a stereo studio-to-transmitter link signal plus another stereo connection, or dual mono connections for remotes.

Its feature-rich and compact design is interoperable with all Tieline IP codecs and compatible over SIP with all EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326 and 3368 compliant codecs and devices.

Gateway is configurable through an embedded HTML5 Toolbox Web-GUI interface and is also fully controllable using Tieline’s Cloud Codec Controller.

* The Gateway-4 codec supports 4 channels only and is not upgradable to support more channels.
