The Studio Technologies Model 210 Announcer's Console is an audio control "hub" for announcers, commentators, and production personnel. Compatible with essentially all broadcast and production audio system environments, the tabletop unit is often used for on-air sports broadcasting. Ease of use, configuration flexibility, and sonic excellence are some of the unit's highlights.
The Model 210 is compatible with most broadcast and audio system environments. Standard connectors are used to interface microphone, headphone, talkback, and IFB signals. Whether it's microphone switching, talkback output, or headphone cue feed, superior audio quality is maintained. A microprocessor provides the Model 210's logic power, allowing exacting control of the unit's operation. A range of configuration choices allow the desired operating parameters to be easily selected. While flexible, the user is presented with an easy-to-use set of controls and indicators.
A high-performance microphone preamplifier circuit provides low-noise/low-distortion amplification over a 20 to 60 dB gain range. The gain is adjustable in 10 dB steps. The input is compatible with balanced dynamic or condenser microphones. The microphone power source is 48 V nominal and meets the worldwide P48 phantom power standard. The preamplifier's gain can also be set for 0 dB, allowing a line-level audio signal to be connected. This could prove useful in special applications such as when an external preamp or mic processor is being used.
An LED indicator serves as an aid for optimizing the setting of the preamplifier's gain. The output of the microphone preamplifier is used by the main output as well as being routed to the compressor circuit that supports the talkback function.
