Tools for interpretation are important in today’s global AV and broadcast industries, with specialized personnel required to manage single- and multi-language feeds. Studio Technologies now offers a device specifically for interpretation use, the Model 201 Interpreter’s Console.
Making its debut at ISE 2024 (Stand CS530, Congress Square), the Model 201 is a Dante audio-over-Ethernet-enabled unit that is suitable for use in single- or multi-language situations both locally or in remote applications.
The Model 201 creates a complete interpreter position and includes both standard features as well as advanced functionalities that are not typically provided by “off-the-shelf” interpretation equipment.
The product includes the ability to create two independent interpretation audio channels. Configuration choices allow a variety of audio content to be included in the interpretation audio; content that can be automatically muted or dimmed (reduced in level) when interpretation is active. This is especially important for off-site or Internet streaming applications.
A dual-channel (stereo) headphone output can be configured to meet the needs of the interpreter. This includes selecting the audio sources, channel routing, and sidetone (confidence) signal operation. A set of buttons and rotary controls allow the user to establish the site-specific operating conditions they desire.
Studio Technologies will also have a range of its solutions to aid integrators and a range of AV projects at ISE 2024, including its Dante leader clocks, bridges, and intercom engines, as well as announcer consoles and beltpacks.
