studio-technologiesThe kits utilise Dante Audio-over-IP networking
USA -bStudio Technologies has announced two new party-line (PL) intercom kits that utilise Dante Audio-over-IP networking. These new kits allow customers to purchase a bundle of Studio Technologies intercom products at a reduced price point.
The Party-Line Intercom Kit 1 (DPL-KIT-01) includes a Model 5421 Dante Intercom Audio Engine and four Model 372A Intercom Beltpacks. Party-Line Intercom Kit 2 (DPL-KIT-02) again includes a Model 5421 Dante Intercom Audio Engine but with four Model 373A Intercom Beltpacks. These new offerings enable personnel to easily implement a high-performance, Dante-enabled PL intercom system in fixed and mobile broadcast facilities, post-production studios, commercial and educational theatre environments, industrial, and general entertainment applications.
“We’re pleased to offer our customers a cost-effective means of implementing a small, Ethernet-based party-line intercom system,” says Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. “Arriving in a single carton, users can easily deploy a flexible, high-performance system that leverages their existing network infrastructure. These kits can also be an excellent learning ‘tool,’ providing a great way to begin the transition to an IP-based communications environment.”
The Model 5421 Dante Intercom Audio Engine is a compact 1/2-rack unit that supports 16 Dante receiver (input) and transmitter (output) channels. Only a Gigabit Ethernet network connection with power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capability is required for Model 5421 operation. Users can configure the 16-channel audio engine to provide from one to four “virtual” intercom circuits. Unlike general-purpose Dante digital matrix devices, the Model 5421 is optimised for intercom applications, providing multiple mix-minus buses for optimal coms audio performance.
The Model 372A Intercom Beltpack offers a 5-pin female XLR connector to support single- and dual-channel headsets commonly used in professional broadcast environments. The Model 373A Intercom Beltpack provides a 4-pin male XLR connector for use with single-channel headsets that are often used in theatre or live-event applications. In addition, the units also offer a 3.5 mm 4-conductor TRRS jack that allows use of low-cost computer gaming headsets.
