Commentatorx6 is an interface consisting of 4 apparatus: 3 reporter terminals and 1 central unit, allows to 6 commentators equipped with headset / microphone to operate simultaneously during a broadcast and receive the program feedback in the headphones. Each of the commentators pressing the intercom button of his reporter cassette can enter to circuit intercom to talk and listen to the director (the director's return is common to all the reporters).
The output to the intercom traveling on a common channel for all reporters.
A peculiar characteristic of Commentatorx6 is the ability to connect the four unit via simple not shielded flat cables also for lengths of a certain size, this is possible because all audio outputs are isolated by means of quality transformer and the three reporter cassette are powered with a 48V DC voltage from the main unit to avoid unwanted ground loops.
Each station reporter has 2 XLR input connectors for connecting headset / microphone of two commentators, each of which has one button for intercom conversation with the director (with relative exclusion of signal to the audio mixer) and an adjustment volume for the headphones. On the back there are connectors for the interconnection of 3 reporter terminals using flat-ribbon cable, and of the central unit.
On the back of the central unit are the 6 XLR connectors for the audio signal coming out of each of the 6 microphones of reporters to send to the audio mixer, 2 XLR connectors for connecting to intercom, an XLR connector for the program return, a 9-pin D Intercom GPI connector with which the director intervenes simultaneously on listening to all 6 of the commentators interrupting momentarily the program return.
The power of the central unit is 220 VAC while the 3 stations are powered by 48 volts reporter using flat cables.
The central unit can be mounted on a 1RU space 19", dimensions: 430x170x44 mm while the 3 reporter terminals have the following dimensions: 200 x 150 x 63 mm.
