JK Audio Inkeeper LTD
Booth Number: N2125
Innkeeper LTD is a desktop digital hybrid providing talk show quality phone connections. Our simplest digital hybrid yet, innkeeper LTD sends line level signals into the phone line while maintaining separation between the operator's voice and the caller. The balanced XLR output jack contains only the caller's voice. This digital hybrid connects audio signals to a standard analog telephone line without the transmit/receive crosstalk common to analog hybrids. Its Digital Signal Processor (DSP) continuously monitors both the phone line and audio signals. This proprietary, dual-convergence echo canceller algorithm can achieve separation typically exceeding 50 dB, without any setup and without sending a noise burst down the line. An auxiliary telephone is only required to place outgoing calls. The Remote jack allows connection to a JK Audio Guest Module, for remote control and dialing without an auxiliary telephone.
