The Express ip was designed to provide a quick and easy solution when it is necessary to provide interfacing for two commentators, with simple facilities, into a Dante network audio network. This high quality commentary unit is ideal for those looking for cost effective solutions without paying for unwanted features; the Express Box is worthy of investigation.
Two front panel mic inputs with selectable 48v phantom power.
Each mic input has its own individual output. The second mic output can be switched on the rear panel to be a mix of both mic inputs. The two talkback circuits have individual outputs and are common for both commentators.
There are four inputs for external sources, and one sidetone pot of their own voice. These are available independently to each commentator on individual pots, so each can adjust the inputs for their own preference of mix level. There are two 6.35mm headphone sockets – 1 for each commentator. A 7 segment LED PPM meter displays level.
The network connection is AES67/Dante compatible and is available on the rear panel on an RJ45/CAT5 connection. It offers 4 input channels and 4 output channels.
There is an internal switch mode AC power supply, or the Express ip can be powered by PoE if powered by a switch that provides power over Ethernet.
