Studio Technologies Unveils Model 381 On-Air Belt Pack

News Image
Studio Technologies has introduced the Model 381 On-Air Beltpack featuring Dante® Audio-over-Ethernet technology.

The highly-compact, lightweight unit can provide a complete on-air position for on-air talent or related personnel. The Model 381 will support broadcast environments that include traditional sports and live entertainment events, eSports, newsgathering, and streaming applications. The unit offers simple deployment, configuration flexibility, and an intuitive user experience - all while maintaining pro-audio quality and reliability. Dante support allows compatibility with many contemporary audio applications. The Model 381 can be used 'standalone' or integrated with a multitude of other networked audio devices that utilize standard Ethernet networking infrastructure.

"We feel that with the Model 381, there isn’t a simpler solution for creating a high-quality broadcast 'standup' position. Whether at the side of a court, field, or pitch, the unit provides on-air talent with everything they need in a hassle-free package," said Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. "With only a PoE Ethernet connection, the Model 381 seamlessly integrates into contemporary, Ethernet-based environments."

Deploying the Model 381 requires just a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection, a microphone, and a pair of headphones or an earpiece. Once connected, users are provided with main and talkback output channels with associated status pushbutton switch, two audio listen channels, and sidetone capabilities. The compact and lightweight aluminum enclosure incorporates a belt clip to allow direct attachment to on-air talent’s clothing. The unit is equipped with an etherCON® RJ45 jack for the PoE Ethernet connection, a 3-pin XLR connector for the microphone input, and ¼-inch jack for interfacing with the headphones or earpiece.

Two Dante audio input channels provide users with talent cue (IFB) signals. An integrated sidetone function can be enabled to provide users with a microphone confidence signal. A pushbutton switch on the Model 381's top panel provides a combination talkback and 'cough' function.
