Studio Technologies has released the Model 211 Announcer’s Console, designed to serve as a broadcast audio control centre for announcers, commentators and production talent.

Studio Technologies Model 211The unit integrates all on-air, talkback and cue audio signal routing into one compact system with the configuration flexibility for a wide range of applications. For simple installation, standard connectors are used to interface with analogue microphone, headphone, talkback and talent cue signals. Whether the Model 211 is used for microphone switching, talkback output or headphone cue feed, analogue audio quality is maintained.

‘The Model 211 fits into our 200-series line of analogue announcer’s consoles by addressing some specific features requested by field production personnel,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes. ‘Based on our popular Model 210, the Model 211 offers an alternate feature set, specifically in the area of directly supporting analogue cue audio sources. Rather than being designed for compatibility with powered IFB, the Model 211 allows connection with standard balanced and unbalanced audio signals. All of the 200 series units offer ease of use, configuration flexibility and sonic excellence, and the Model 211 is no exception. The unit is at home when used for on-air television or radio broadcasting, live-event streaming, stadium announcement and other general-purpose audio applications.’

Key Model 211 features include mic preamp with selectable gain and 48V phantom power, two line-level cue inputs, two pushbutton switches that offer programmable ‘click-free’ audio path control, and transformer-balanced main and talkback outputs. The mic input is compatible with balanced dynamic or condenser microphones and incorporates a preamplifier circuit that provides low-noise/low-distortion amplification over a 20-60dB gain range in 10dB steps. The main output is intended for use as an on-air, stadium announce or other primary audio feed. The talkback output contains resistors in series with its output connections, allowing the user to directly combine talkback outputs from multiple units.

Extensive configuration choices are accessible via DIP switches located on the bottom of the tabletop unit’s enclosure. Audio routing is performed using solid-state devices and each critical audio path features ‘clickless’ electronic switches for noise-free control. All inputs and outputs make extensive use of protection components to help prevent damage from real-world signal anomalies.
