Studio Technologies Introduces eSports Audio Hub

Studio Technologies has introduced a control hub for eSports audio applications.

Studio Technologies said the Model 207 eSports Console is optimized to address the microphone, audio monitoring and interfacing needs of eSports players and personnel. Housed in a compact, tabletop enclosure, the unit incorporates both analog and Dante audio-over-Ethernet technology to allow direct integration with personal computers and Ethernet-based audio networks.

“As the popularity of eSports has continued to grow, so has the expectations for the technology used by the competitors and event personnel,” said Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. “We saw a trend in customers using our existing products for broadcast and streaming eSports applications. The results were adequate but not optimal, which led us to explore the field. We designed the Model 207 expressly to support the needs of these emerging applications.”

Integrating the Model 207 into applications requires only a few standard connections. By providing both a 5-pin female XLR and a 3.5mm 4-conductor TRRS jack, a wide range of headsets can be connected. The XLR connector supports traditional “professional” headsets that are commonly used with intercom systems. The unit’s 3.5mm TRRS jack allows direct interconnection with low-cost stereo gaming headsets. These headsets are frequently used in gaming applications and can offer excellent performance as well as meeting the needs of player sponsorship.
