Studio Technologies Model 43D IFB Interface

Interface providing broadcast-standard powered and non-powered analog audio IFB outputs from audio signals that are being transported using the Dante audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology
MFR# M43D

Product Description

The Studio Technologies Model 43D IFB Interface provides broadcast-standard powered and non-powered analog audio IFB outputs from audio signals that are being transported using the Dante audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. IFB, also known as "interruptible foldback" or talent cueing, is a method commonly used for on-air talent and related personnel to receive one-way (listen-only) audio signals associated with live-event broadcasts. Especially important in sports and entertainment events, IFB plays a crucial role in virtually all broadcast applications that require people to stay "in the know." Dante has found wide acceptance as an audio "backbone" due to its ease of use, high performance, strong interoperability, and wide adoption by a large number of equipment manufacturers. The Model 43D is a specialized "tool" that helps to extend Dante's capabilities into the important but specialized world of broadcast and production IFB.

Dante audio-over-Ethernet technology is used to transport the four audio channels that are associated with two, 2-channel IFB outputs from their source to the Model 43D. Each of the Model 43D's two powered IFB outputs supply operating power and two audio channels to groups of listen-only user devices. Two line-level analog outputs are also provided for general-purpose use. The Model 43D is compatible with the latest broadcast and audio equipment that uses Dante technology. An Ethernet connection is all that's required to make the Model 43D part of a sophisticated, networked audio system.

A Model 43D utilizes four digital audio input channels typically provided by Dante-enabled devices such as matrix intercom systems, DSP processors, broadcast routers, and audio consoles. The powered IFB outputs allow direct connection with listen-only user beltpacks such as the popular Model 32A from Studio Technologies. The line-level IFB outputs are provided for connection with a variety of devices that use analog interfacing. Careful attention to circuit design and component selection ensures that excellent audio quality is maintained. Audio level meters provide confirmation of system performance during setup and operation. The Model 43D can be powered by Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or an external source of 12 volts DC.

Standard connectors are used for the powered IFB outputs, line-level IFB outputs, Ethernet, and DC power interconnections. The Model 43D's enclosure has a "1/2-rack" 1U form factor and weighs less than two pounds, making it well suited for use in portable applications. Alternately, using one of the optional rack-mount front panels, one or two Model 43D units can be mounted in a single space (1U) of a standard 19-inch rack enclosure.

FEATURES:

  • Dante audio-over-Ethernet technology
  • Powered 2-channel IFB outputs
  • Line-level IFB outputs
  • Excellent audio quality
  • PoE and 12 Vdc powering
  • Table-top, portable, or optional rack-mount use

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
