Studio Technologies has expanded its line of Dante-compliant products with the Model 374A Intercom Beltpack – an update of the Model 374, with additional capabilities and a personal-computer-based method of configuring the unit.

Model 374A Intercom BeltpackThe beltpack continues to offer four channels of high-quality party-line (PL) intercom in a compact, user-worn package, which makes it ideal for a variety of on-air broadcast, live event, theatre and commercial environments. ‘The Model 374A builds on the success of our original Model 374 and adds new features and performance enhancements,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes.

‘By adding support for our STcontroller software application and responding to field requests, we anticipate the Model 374A will be well received by both users and support personnel. With its range of features and configuration choices it should seamlessly bridge the gap between typical partyline and more complex digital matrix intercom systems. The Model 374A leverages the power of Dante and standard LAN networking to offer exciting new ways to meet the needs of sports, broadcast and general intercom applications.’

A standard Ethernet connection provides both PoE and digital audio transport. Over a local-area-network (LAN), multiple Model 374A units can be configured for PL intercom applications with the help of an external Dante-enabled audio matrix, such as the Studio Technologies Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine.

Key features can be easily configured using the STcontroller software application. Supporting the Windows operating system, the application is used to quickly confirm and revise Model 374A settings as required. Configurable parameters include electret microphone powering, microphone preamplifier gain, talk button operation, headphone channel assignment, and integrated sidetone level. The Model 374A is AES67 compatible and compliant with the Dante Domain Manager software application.

‘The wide range of easily configurable features, along with the clear and ‘clean’ audio quality provided by the digital audio signal path, offers an excellent user experience,’ adds Kapes. ‘Like the rest of the Model 370-Series, we built the Model 374A specifically for demanding broadcast and pro A/V environments. Production personnel can be assured these units will provide reliable intercom time and time again.’
