Studio Technologies - Model 380 On-Air Beltpack

The Model 380 On-Air Beltpack offers a unique combination of audio resources, providing main and talkback outputs, talent cue (IFB) input capabilities, and essential user controls in a compact, portable package. Optimized for broadcast sports and live entertainment events, news-gathering, and streaming broadcast applications, the unit allows incredibly simple deployment while maintaining "pro" audio quality and an intuitive user experience. The Model 380 integrates directly into both Dante audio-over-Ethernet and standard analog audio environments. With just a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection, a dynamic microphone, and a pair of headphones or an earpiece, a complete broadcast "stand-up" on-air position can be created. And by using the Model 380's microphone output a direct connection to an analog microphone-level input on an associated camera, camcorder, or audio console is also supported. Key features can be easily configured including microphone preamplifier gain, talkback button operation, headphone signal routing, and sidetone operation.

Case Studies

When NEP Group, Inc.’s newest mobile unit, a facility dedicated to supporting sports production, went on the road to cover Thursday night football and professional golf events, it turned to Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video and fiber-optic solutions, for their Dante-enabled intercom and on-air audio products.
