New Intercom from Studio Technologies for NAB 2019

Studio Technologies will introduce a new intercom station at NAB 2019, the Model 348.

The Studio Technologies model 348 Intercom Station, offers eight talk-and-listen audio channels that can be configured for intercom, talent cueing (IFB) and REMI/At-Home applications. Utilizing Dante audio over Ethernet network technology, the desktop station offers extensive resources in a compact table-top enclosure. It is ideal for traditional sports and news broadcasting, live event, corporate AV, theater, and eSports applications.

The unit has eight rotary controls with integral RGB LEDs to permit monitoring of the eight Dante audio input channels. Two additional controls allow adjustment of the headphone and monitor speaker outputs. Pushbutton switches provide the user with talk control. The Model 348 is compatible with both intercom-style and personal computer gaming headsets. 

A gooseneck microphone can be connected as an alternate talk audio source. In addition to an internal speaker, two Dante monitor output channels can be used for external audio signal monitoring. Two Gigabit Ethernet connections allow the Model 348 to support both switched and redundant Dante operation. Power for the unit can be supplied by Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or an external source of 12 volts DC.
