NEW! The IFB Controller
another problem solver from DM Engineering. Meet the new DM Engineering
IFB Controller. Simplify your remotes and sporting events by adding the
IFB Controller for instant communications with your remote site.
* Do you find yourself having to switch your control
room mic to a different buss to talk back to the remote site and then
forget to switch it back for air?
* Does your studio board operator ever forget to
take their mic out of program mode when talking back to the remote?
* Does on-air programming drown out the talk back
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you need one of these
IFB Controllers to simply solve all of the above mentioned problems with
the push of a button. There is no complicated wiring or an additional
mic-line amplifier required, it's all built in to the IFB Controller.
Installation is simple, just loop your Control Room microphone and mix-minus
buss audio through the XLR connectors on the rear of the IFB Controller.
The output of the IFB Controller can be connected directly to your codec,
be it a Telos Zephyr, Comrex, Tieline, or whatever codec you are using
for remote broadcasts.
The insertion of the IFB Controller in the mic chain will not affect the
operation or sound of the Control Room mic in any way, and use of phantom
power is not altered in any way by the IFB Controller. The IFB Controller
can also be used at a remote site or sporting event when you need to talk
to the talent on the field without going into the play-by-play or color
persons earphones. Simply install it in-line with the program audio going
to the IFB transmitter for the field talent.
The IFB Controller has a recessed front panel "mic gain" control
that can be pre-set for any type of microphone input or even line level
inputs. There is a front panel "ducking" switch for including
or not including the mix-minus program material in the output to the codec,
including a "ducking level" control to adjust the amount of
"ducking" of the mix-minus material under the talk back mic
rear panel "remote control" jack is provided for remote operation
of the IFB Controller by a set of normally open contacts or a logic-low
signal. The IFB Controller is supplied with a 15VDC power supply (wall
wart) and User Guide.
