New Commentator Unit Shipping From Sonifex
28th April 2010
The CM-CU21 is a portable commentator unit designed for use in sports-grounds and stadia which provides two fully featured commentator positions and a third guest location that can alternatively be used as a line-level input. Showcased at the recent BVE, CABSAT and NAB exhibitions, the product has now been released.
Marcus Brooke, Managing Director of Sonifex said: “This commentator unit is a fantastic new addition to our product line and we’ve had great interest in it due to its full feature set and low price. It’s as solid as a rock and has a flexible range of options allowing it to be customised for different requirements and environments.”
Each of the commentator positions has an individual output, with two additional outputs providing a mix of all active commentary channels. Two talkback output channels, with a built in limiter, are available to each of the two main commentators and they can be linked to provide simultaneous operation. Particularly useful is the inclusion of a 1kHz line-up tone which can be activated on the outputs when setting the unit up.
A wide input gain range and switchable phantom power on each commentary position allows support of a variety of microphone types including low output ribbon microphones, headsets and high output phantom powered microphones. There are 4 transformer balanced return audio inputs which, along with the commentator inputs, are routed to the headphone monitor controls. With these headphone controls, any monitor input can be adjusted and sent to either the left, right or both ears.
A bright LED meter display gives instant level information and all of the buttons are of the illuminated soft-touch type with accidental knock protection. A GPIO port gives an open-collector driven output indication of any active On-Air or talkback channel and four remote inputs provide an external call/alert to each of the talkback controls.
An On-Air lock switch prevents the On-Air buttons from being accidentally deactivated and a T/B Gang switch links the operation of talkbacks A & B.
