Aimed at live broadcast, stadium, corporate and production facilities, Studio Technologies’ Dante-enabled Model 214, 215 and 216 announcers’ consoles provide announcement facilities for on-air and location broadcasting, stadium voiceover and corporate events.

Studio Technologies Model 214/215/216 announcers’ consolesEach unit offers on-air talkback and cue audio signal routing in a compact tabletop system, and support applications using Dante Audio-over-Ethernet media networking using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or an external 12V DC power source. The connection of a microphone and pair of headphones or a broadcast headset completes the installation process.

The Model 214 offers two pushbutton switches with LED indicators that control main and talkback audio output channels. The main channel serves as the on-air, stadium announcement or primary audio feed, while the talkback channel provides production trucks, control rooms or support personnel with talent-originated cue signals. In addition to these channels, a ‘hot mic’ output channel is also available. This un-switched audio output is beneficial when the Model 214 is being used in conjunction with an intercom system, audio console or any application that requires an ‘always active’ microphone signal.

The Model 215 offers three pushbutton switches with LED indicators to control three audio output channels – one main and two talkback; while the Model 216 offers four pushbutton switches with LED indicators for one main and three talkback channels. One pushbutton switch controls the status of the main output on both units and is the primary channel. Additional pushbutton switches control the status of the talkback channels, which include the audio used to communicate with producers, directors, spotters or other behind-the-scenes production personnel. The output channels can also be routed, by way of other support equipment, to the inputs on other Model 215/216 consoles, which permit a talent party-line talk function to be created.

The Model 214, 215 and 216 announcer’s consoles are now shipping.
