Studio Technologies Announces The Dante Equipped Model 342 Intercom Station

Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, introduces the Model 342 Intercom Station, a two-channel intercom user station that supports Dante Audio-over-Ethernet (AoE) workflows.

The compact, desktop device integrates seamlessly with other Studio Technologies Dante-based intercom system products to create flexible and great-sounding intercom resources. The Model 342 can be used in a variety of broadcast and live events, including education, theater, sports, entertainment, house-of-worship, corporate, and aerospace applications.

Data and power for the Model 342 requires a standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection. Hardware features include a dual-channel (stereo) headphone output, two headset connectors, integrated sidetone support, call signal receive display, and remote mic kill (“talk off”). With both 5-pin XLR and 3.5 mm TRRS headset connectors, the Model 342 is compatible with professional broadcast headsets, gaming headsets, and mobile phone earbuds. The microphone input circuitry supports both dynamic or electret microphones. The unit’s two LED-illuminated talk pushbutton switches can be independently configured. Two "push-in/push-out" rotary controls are used to set and maintain the desired headphone output level.

This offering supports both Dante and AES67 operation and is compatible with the Dante Domain Manager (DDM) software application. Its Dante transmitter (output) and receiver (input) channels can be routed with other Dante-compatible devices using the Dante Controller software application. 

The extensive range of operating parameters are configured using the STcontroller software application. The controller allows production personnel to quickly and easily configure the unit’s capabilities to meet an application’s exact needs. STcontroller is offered in versions that are compatible with the WinOS and macOS operating systems.
