Montreaux, Switzerland

� The colorful sounds eminating from the Montreaux Jazz Festival were enjoyed by more ears than usual this year with the help of the Telos Zephyr Xstream. Six of the highest rated stations in Switzerland joined together to retransmit a daily half-hour program with interviews and some songs of the concerts.

The Zephyr Xstream uses the MPEG2 AAC/MPEG4 AAC low delay encoding algorithm. It is the first codec to implement this method. The low delay AAC mode offers quality equivalent to Layer 3 with about 75% less delay (less than 60mS).

The Zephyr Xstream received a BE Radio Pick Hit award at NAB2001.
