Henry Engineering Talent Pod
Mic and headphone controller
Talent Pod gives an announcer control of his mic and headphones. It lets the announcer turn his mic on and off, and also lets him create a mix of local and return (IFB) audio in his headphones. There are two headphone volume controls, one for local audio (from the remote site mixer) and another for return audio. The return/IFB audio is normally sent to the remote site from the main studio. To prevent confusion between the local and return audio, Talent Pod has two PAN switches, so the announcer can position the local and return audio in the center, left or right channel of his headphones. For broadcasts with multiple announcers, several Talent Pods can be linked together using CAT-5 cables, eliminating the need for multiple power sources, DAs and complicated wiring.
What the Pick Hits judges had to say:
"This fixes an age-old studio problem"
"This is also useful for remotes."
