A new company - Digital Talkback - has been formed to manufacture a new range of wireless communication products. The company has been set up by Mike Weaver of Mike Weaver Communications, and already has Andy Lillywhite (also of Mike Weaver Communications) and Richard Barman - formerly a director of Autograph Sales - onboard. Lillywhite and Barman are undertaking technical and marketing/sales roles respectively.

The first product launched by Digital talkback is the DTB-2001 wireless beltpack system which has been developed over the last 12 months by radio communications specialist Weaver. The product debuts at IBC (in September - and will be previewed the preceding week at PLASA in Earls Court on the Autograph Sales stand (B4). The DTB-2001 beltpack/base station system is based on DECT technology and is licence exempt in the UK, as well as the rest of the EU and many other territories. The system avoids competing with the already clogged radio frequency networks, and over 100 users can use the system in a single location, with no frequency management or time-consuming and complex set-up necessary.

Digital audio transmission also enables all packs to be full duplex, and ensures that audio quality is always crystal clear. Each beltpack has its own dedicated base station, and each base station can be integrated with either 4-wire systems, standard two-wire ‘party line’ intercom systems or even both at the same time.

Digital Talkback can be contacted at Unit 6, Fullwood Close, Coventry, CV2 2SS, UK. Tel: +44 (0)2476 617743.
