Studio Technologies, the manufacturer of audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, recently started shipping the StudioComm System with Dante Support, consisting of the Model 792 Central Controller and the Model 793 Control Console.
According to the company, there is an increased need for specialized source selection and level control equipment in audio personal given the variety of audio formats and channel counts used in modern production workflows. The company added that by utilizing the latest StudioComm System, users can now conveniently monitor high-channel-count Dante digital and analog audio sources while maintaining audio quality.
“While Dante has found wide acceptance in professional applications, analog signals continue to play an important role in audio workflows,” says Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. “That fact, combined with the range of audio formats, can make monitoring a challenge. We’re excited to offer our customers a high-performance yet easy-to-use solution with our newest StudioComm System.”
According to Studio Technologies, the StudioComm System incorporates an internal 16-channel architecture, providing direct support for a range of surround audio applications. Additionally, audio level control and processing is performed in 32-bit programmable logic which helps maintain the standard of audio quality.
Moreover, with Dante digital and analog audio inputs and outputs and an extensive set of operating resources, users can seamlessly integrate the system into virtually any contemporary facility.
Going into other specifics, Studio Technologies revealed in a statement that the Model 793 serves as the system’s “command center.” According to a statement, the unit is designed to reside at a user’s location for quick access to all monitoring functions and a direct view of status information.
On the other hand, Model 792 contains all the circuitry required to support the Dante digital and analog audio input and output signals. The one-rack-space unit also links with the Model 793 using a 9-conductor D-subminiature cable.
Studio Technologies added that an integral web server allows fast and flexible configuration of the unit’s Ethernet networking, Dante, and analog audio performance, which in turn allows for an optimized performance of the system so as to meet the needs of other specific applications.
