Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console
The Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console designed to serve as the audio control center for announcers, commentators, and production talent.
With its digital audio input and output resources the tabletop unit is well suited for numerous applications including on-air television sports broadcasting. The broadcast-standard interfaces allow direct integration into contemporary "all digital" environments. Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console integrates all on-air, talkback, and cue audio signal routing into one compact system. Some of the unit's highlights include ease of use, configuration flexibility, and sonic excellence. Whether it's microphone preamplification, switching of main and talkback audio signals, or the headphone output, superior audio quality is maintained throughout. A microprocessor provides Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console's logic power, allowing precise control of the unit's operation. A range of choices allows the desired operating configuration to be easily selected. While flexible, the user is presented with an easy-to-use set of controls and indicators. The digital audio interfaces are directly compatible with system environments that use AES digital audio signals as their preferred transmission method. Unbalanced, 75 ohm interfaces (AES3id) are standard with balanced 110 ohm (AES3) support also available.
While "all-digital" audio installations are getting closer and closer to reality, analog signals continue to play a role and will probably do so for many years. As such, Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console also offers support for analog audio inputs, main output and talkback outputs functions. While requiring the installation of optional connectors or modules, these analog resources can help complete specialized applications. A truly next-generation product, extensive research into the needs and desires of field production personnel was integral to the creation of Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console. While primarily targeted for on-air television applications, specialized features are included to allow Studio Technologies Model 212 Announcer's Console to be used in a variety of other audio applications. These include on-air radio broadcasting, stadium announcement, live production, and voice-over/narration booths.
