The new UniFace 'Universal Interface' from ARX: A user-friendly way of adapting existing systems to be `podcast-ready' by simply inserting it into the existing signal chain.
Automatic Gain Control
Two Balanced XLR Line input channels feeding into the Automatic Gain Control circuitry taken from our unique UniMIX. Specially tailored parameters ensure that levels remain constant, irrespective of Mic placement and user technique. The result is a consistent level for the recording, removing the need for fulltime monitoring and the risk of overloading and distortion. The Recording Outputs are stereo balanced XLR connectors, transformer isolated to prevent ground loops and associated noise.
For the room system, the UniFace has two Balanced XLR outputs, looped from the Balanced Inputs. The Input and loop Output XLR's are hardwired so there is no interaction with the existing room system. Industry standard connections ensure that the UniFace neatly and compatibly interfaces with existing systems with no wiring modifications being required.
Wide Dynamic Range
Internally, careful attention to the signal path design, using precision components found in high-end mixing consoles, has resulted in a unit with very wide dynamic range. The UniFace has enough headroom to cope with the hottest line signal, and better than digital noise specifications. Other applications include Boardroom/Annual General Meeting recording, Courtroom, Houses of Worship, and much more.
