When Poland’s Eleven Sports Network approached Pawlaki Pro Audio for a bespoke audio function, company founder Sebastian Pawlak turned to audio, video and fibre-optic specialist Studio Technologies – who responded with a software-based update to the Model 5412 Audio Interface to support his needs.

Eleven Sports NetworkPawlak needed to replace an analogue audio interface used with cameras and associated control units that carried 4-wire intercom audio, mixing up to eight sources to one output and distributing one return source to up to eight destinations. Eleven Sports had been using a legacy product commonly used in Poland, as well as in worldwide.‘It was a widely used tool in this region, especially in outside broadcast van applications,’ Pawlak says. ‘Suddenly, the manufacturer’s product was no longer available, which presented us with a problem. Most intercom systems we offer provide digital audio transport via Ethernet, so we asked Studio Technologies if they had a compatible product. Following our suggestions, Studio Technologies suggested its Dante-connected Model 5412. 

‘The company made a few software changes and provided us with an excellent solution. The product ended up doing more than we expected, providing the needed features along with the flexibility to select just the number of channels required.’ 

At no additional charge, Studio Technologies quickly developed a firmware update to the Model 5412 and has now made the new capabilities of the standard features offered by the unit. Using a browser-based menu selection, users are able to achieve the required intercom interface function. The Model 5412 is available in two versions, the -01 with eight inputs and outputs, and the -02 with 16 input and outputs versions. Both support analog line-level input and outputs with audio transport via Dante. Three Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and both AC mains and 12V DC powering allow support for a wide range of installations.According to Pawlak, the Model 5412-01’s new flexibility allows it to be used as an eight-port intercom interface unit, as well as for six- or four-port applications. Remaining channels can be used for standard analog to and from Dante interfacing applications. Additionally, he highlighted the benefits of the unit’s compact, lightweight enclosure, which mounts in one space of a standard 19-inch rack.

‘The Model 5412 has matched our previous interface solutions while also offering additional features in just one rack unit,’ explained Pawlak. ‘Having that functionality along with less space, less weight, and a lower price is invaluable for applications using outside broadcast trucks.’Pawlak’s first customer to use the Model 5412 is Eleven Sports Network. The station is part of Polsat, the biggest private broadcaster in Poland. The Model 5412 has served as the perfect replacement audio interface, as the network needs both analogue and Dante capabilities. 

‘Our customers have already put the Model 5412 into their current and future budgets, thanks to its functionality,’ he adds. ‘Looking at market needs and the future of audio technology, Studio Technologies will be my number one audio interface for customers in Poland and worldwide.’
