The Studio Technologies Model 240 Producer's Console is designed for producers, directors, or those who need to efficiently communicate with on-air broadcast personnel and related production crew. The unit provides the resources of a 4-channel talent cueing ("IFB") central controller combined with a 2-channel party-line (PL) intercom user station. Incorporating numerous configurable features and extensive upgrade flexibility, the Model 240 can meet the exacting demands of this important and highly specialized field. Compatible with broadcast and production audio and intercom system environments, the tabletop unit is well suited for applications including sports and entertainment television programming, radio and TV news, and corporate events. While the Model 240 is sophisticated on the inside, users are presented with a simple-to-use, great sounding "tool" to help them do their job better.
Four pushbutton switches control the routing of microphone audio to the four main outputs and, if selected, the 2-channel PL intercom interface. Each button can be configured for push-to-talk or alternate-action operation. A status LED is located above each button and provides a clear indication of talk status. Two line inputs allow a variety of audio sources to be connected. They can be used as program audio for the four main outputs or routed to the 2-channel headphone output.
