Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier Details
Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is a self-contained listen-only "beltpack" unit that drives talent earpieces or headsets. The unit is powered by, and receives audio from, single- or dual-channel broadcast-standard IFB or party-line intercom circuits. A 3-conductor microphone-type cable links the IFB or intercom circuit with Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier's input. Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier's resources were selected so that a range of single- and dual-channel applications can be supported. For flexibility the dual-channel audio output is provided on both Â¼-inch and 3.5 mm jacks. The jacks are 3-conductor and are compatible with both monaural (2-conductor) and stereo (3-conductor) plugs. An LED indicator lights whenever input power is present, providing setup assistance and user confidence. Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is housed in a lightweight, yet rugged, aluminum housing. A belt clip allows it to be directly attached to clothing or accessories. An optional mounting adapter is available, enabling the Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier to be installed in a permanent location.
Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is intended for use by on-air broadcast and production support personnel. The unit provides two user-accessible rotary level controls and an output mode switch. The switch is used to select how the one or two audio input sources are routed to the connected earpiece or headset. In the switch's stereo position input channel 1 (XLR pin 2) is sent to the left output channel while input 2 (XLR pin 3) is sent to the right output channel. The two controls allow the left and right output levels to be independently set. When the output mode switch is set to the mono position, a "mix" of input channels 1 and 2 can be created. Using the level controls, camera or production personnel can create a unique cue mix of either or both audio inputs. This allows independent IFB signals, such as those intended for use by on-air talent and technicians, to be simultaneously monitored. By design, Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier's level controls cannot be set to fully attenuate ("mute") the input sources. This helps to ensure that users will never accidentally miss important "cues" from directors or producers. While audio quality is not normally considered a factor in IFB or intercom systems, Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is built to "pro audio" standards. This helps to ensure that the best possible audio reproduction is provided.
Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is compatible with virtually every standard broadcast IFB and party-line intercom circuit. This type of circuit typically uses 3-pin XLR-type connectors for interfacing with connected equipment. XLR pin 1 serves as common for DC power and audio. Pin 2 provides DC power and, in the case of a dual-channel circuit, DC power and channel 1 audio. Pin 3 provides channel 2 audio in dual-channel systems or channel 1 audio in single-channel systems.
Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier has been tested for correct operation with IFB and intercom circuits associated with systems from RTS®, Clear-Com®, and Studio Technologies. Good performance can be expected when Studio Technologies Model 34 Talent Amplifier is used with IFB circuits associated with the ubiquitous RTS Model 4010 Central Controller and IFB-828 Interface. With IFB circuits provided by interface units from Studio Technologies, excellent audio quality and support for lengthy cable runs can be expected.
