Telos Alliance® Announces 25-Seven PDMX

Newest member of the PDM family of program delay managers.

USA: Telos Alliance®, trusted global leader in broadcast audio for more than three decades, announces the 25-Seven PDMX Program Delay Manager.

PDMX is a software version of the 25-Seven PDM II Program Delay Manager and the newest member of the PDM family of products that major broadcasters worldwide have trusted for over fifteen years to keep their on-air content free from objectionable material.

PDMX is delivered as a container and can be hosted on-premises on a COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) server, on cloud-hosted services such as AWS. It is also available on the Telos Alliance AP-3000
hardware platform.

“PDMX is the next giant step in the evolution of the program delay,” said Geoff Steadman,
Product ManagerOmnia and 25-Seven. “It brings all the great features that broadcasters love from
the PDM and PDM II hardware boxes to the pure AoIP and virtual deployment world, which is something
we’re really excited about.”

PDMX offers up to 99 seconds of stereo audio delay and a “dump” function that removes a user-selectable amount of audio each time the button is pressed. Alternatively, PDMX’s Overkill™ feature can play a show-specific fill file and play it over the dump buffer instead of collapsing the delay. Delays can be built through pre-rolling, time expansion, or by playing a locally stored audio file. Exiting a delay can be done through time compression or by using the Cough button to empty the buffer before exiting.

The patented PD-Alert™ feature automatically sends an email with two archived time-stamped audio files capturing both on-air and off-air audio to the Program Director, General Manager, or other station personnel each time the Dump button is pressed.

PDMX’s proven algorithms deliver smooth, artifact-free audio, even when the delay buffer is being built,
and even with stereo music. With its data delay features, meta-data, PAD “now playing” serial data streams, and Livewire GPIO closures can stay in sync with the audio.

PDMX will be available starting April 15, 2024, through the worldwide network of Telos and Axia partners.
