Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer
The Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer is expressly designed for use in electronic-news-gathering vehicles and small production truck applications.
Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer features include four mic/line inputs with +48 volt phantom power, four line inputs, two output buses, LED level metering, flexible monitoring, and AC and DC powering. Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer was specifically designed as a dual-channel audio mixer, rather than as a typical stereo device. This approach makes it excellent for "dual-path" on-air applications. As a utility mixer Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer can create two independent monaural signals, excellent for general signal monitoring, talent cueing, or intercom support uses. Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer is targeted for use by operators with numerous audio sources that need to be quickly and reliably adjusted and routed to create one or two independent audio mixes. In these days of operators having too many tasks to handle, and too little time to do them, Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer is a refreshing combination of performance and simplicity. Using their experience in mobile broadcast applications, the engineers at Studio Technologies were able to design Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer to include all the crucial features required to meet the needs of fast-paced news-gathering operations, while still providing the operator with an easy-to-use product.
The hallmarks of Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer are application flexibility, simplicity in use, audio quality, and long-term reliability. For powering, the unit can be directly connected to an AC mains source. A true "universal input" design that's intended for worldwide use, the input voltage can range from 100 to 240 volts, 50/60 Hz. A source of 10 to 18 volts DC can also be connected to power Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer. If both AC and DC sources are connected, the AC source will power the unit while the DC source will serve as a backup. In this way a battery can be connected, ready to serve in a standby capacity. A carefully selected feature set ensures that Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer will be a "team player" when it is integrated into an audio system. A number of internal configuration "jumpers" allow the unit's performance to be tailored to the needs of specific installations. And while there's flexibility on the inside, the operator is presented with an easy-to-use set of front-panel controls and indicatorsâ?"the operator typically never has to access the back panel to operate the unit. In this way the goal of delivering successful on-air and production audio, day-after-day, can best be achieved. Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer's audio quality is "pro" throughout. The components were carefully selected to deliver low-noise, low-distortion performance.
Long-term reliability was also part of Studio Technologies Model 742A Audio Mixer's design criteria. To that end the unit's enclosure is made of lightweight yet rugged aluminum with a steel front panel for overall rigidity which adds to rack-mounting stability. On the inside, a conservative circuit design combines state-of-the-art integrated circuits for sonic quality with numerous filtering and protection components for long-term reliability.
