Introduction

New Home

Whenever I read of a manufacturer moving to a new location, I think “oh, that’s nice”. I’m happy for them, but not really conscious of what they went through since it really didn’t affect us. Well, we just spent the last 18 months planning, building and finally moving into a new facility, and it definitely has affected our lives. While it was a tough process, we are now much more productive and responsive in all areas of the company. From now on, I’ll have a better appreciation for anyone going through this process. That said, it really does feel great to drive into the new lot!

New Gear

Amidst the pending move, we managed to complete the design of our new Four IFB Phone Bridge

(page 4). We finished just in time to send a dozen units to Torino, Italy for winter sports coverage. We are also introducing RIU-IP (page 9), our new web interface for our innkeeper digital hybrids.

Change UP

We’ve just completed redesign of our innkeeper 1x/1rx digital hybrids (page 10-11). This redesign allowed us to reduce the price of our higher end “x” series units as long as we retired the original innkeeper 1/1r models. The new innkeeper 1x (desktop) and innkeeper 1rx (rackmount) digital hybrids truly represent a new world standard in quality and value.

Wireless Phone Compatibility...

Many JK Audio products provide connection to wireless (cell) phones. While our interface cable plugs directly into the 2.5 mm headset/earpiece jack on many telephone models, there are some telephones that are wired to prevent operation with third party equipment. In most cases, if you can use a generic, third party headset with your cell phone, you can use your JK Audio product as well. Also, while some wireless phones have an acceptable 2.5 mm jack, others require a headset adapter to convert their proprietary connector to an acceptable 2.5 mm jack. JK Audio does not offer these adapters.

Warranty

JK Audio products are covered by a two year warranty to be free from defective workmanship and materials. In the event that your JK Audio product needs repair, you must call us to get an authorization, and then carefully pack and ship it to us or the nearest authorized repair center. You will pay for shipping to us and we will pay for return back to you. No free repairs will be made if the defect was caused by misuse, weather conditions, or other causes, except for defective workmanship or materials.

There are no expressed or implied warranties which extend beyond the warranty here made. Prices, features, and specifications subject to change without notice.

All JK Audio products are made in the USA and carry a two year warranty.

Thanks for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Joe Klinger

Four IFB

NEW

Four IFB

Multi-Line Phone Bridge

Four IFB is a four position analog telephone line interface designed specifically to provide flexible listen only IFB* for television field production use. Each IFB output, and the monitor input / output jacks, may be separately connected to one of the four analog phone lines through the use of rotary line selector switches. A telephone handset may also be connected for communication with the Monitor phone line.

Four IFB is designed to be used in a variety of environments and weather conditions. All controls and components are dust and moisture resistant. A non-removable hinged cover protects the unit’s selector switches, add/drop buttons and keypad while the enclosure design protects the volume controls from physical damage.

* IFB is a broadcast industry acronym which stands for Interruptible Fold Back.

The IFB signal is typically a Program Line (PL) signal from the studio console.

Telephone Audio Interface

AutoHybrid

AutoHybrid allows simultaneous send and receive audio through analog telephone lines.

This is a simple, passive, auto-answer/disconnect telephone line hybrid. Not just another half duplex auto-coupler, this is a full duplex

AutoHybrid. Perfect for monitoring remote locations, IFB feeds, and many simple studio, conferencing, and PA telephone interface applications.

Yes, you can send and receive audio at the same time. The dual transformer hybrid is capable of 20 dB nominal trans-hybrid loss. In other words, your transmit signal will appear mixed with the receive signal, but at a level

20 dB lower than it was sent into the phone line.

The “Auto” feature is very simple. When the

“Auto” switch is selected, AutoHybrid will answer on the first ring. The phone line will remain off-hook, or seized, until either the

Drop button is depressed, or until the phone company releases the line. AutoHybrid will drop the line with either a momentary loss of line current or a polarity reversal. Keep in mind that it may take several seconds before the phone company provides this release signal. Also keep in mind that some business

PBX telephone systems do not provide this release signal.

Digital Hybrid

innkeeper 1x

innkeeper 1x and 1rx

The innkeeper 1x gets audio in and out of analog telephone lines. Its excellent caller audio output does not exhibit the transmit/receive crosstalk common to analog hybrids. This makes innkeeper 1x perfect for radio or television talk shows, teleconferencing, or auto-answer IFB feeds. in order to deliver excellent separation. Our dual-convergence algorithm can achieve transhybrid loss, typically exceeding 50 dB, without any setup.

Innkeeper 1x connects audio signals to a standard analog telephone line without the variations in quality found with analog hybrids. The main function of a hybrid is to bring in the caller’s voice from the phone line, as clear and clean as possible. In the real world, when you send your voice down the telephone line it has a tendency to bleed over into the caller’s audio. The hybrid must adapt to the phone line in order to properly separate transmit and receive audio. We use a 16-bit DSP to monitor the phone line and audio signals continuously

From the front panel you can control on-hook/ off-hook, and adjust headphone volume. Frontpanel LEDs display signal levels and option status. The Send and Caller Volume controls are hidden behind an access panel to discourage unauthorized “tweaking”. Five feature switches are also hidden behind the access panel. AGC

(Automatic Gain Control) adjusts the caller volume to an average level. AGC will tame a loud caller, and boost a quiet caller or quiet long distance connection. Caller Ducking drops the Caller output level by 9 dB whenever the host speaks. This keeps the host “in charge” of the show, automatically making sure the caller never overpowers the host by attempting to talk over the host’s voice. Press the “Presence” button and you’ll get a richer sound from the caller’s voice. This digital filter brings back some of the low-end lost in transmission. The

Test Tone generator sends a 1 kHz full level tone either down the phone line or out the Caller

XLR jack. This tone represents the maximum level transmit into the phone line or out the XLR jacks. The Test Tone generator is not required for tuning the digital hybrid. Auto-Answer simply answers on the first ring and disconnects at the end of the call.

This wouldn’t be a JK Audio product without its fill of common-sense features. Check out the front-panel headphone jack and volume control.

You can monitor either the send signal, the caller’s voice, or a mix of the two. This output is also sent to the rear panel screw terminals so you can easily add a monitor speaker. As a mat-

Guest Module 1

Guest Module 1 gives you remote access to the on-hook/ off-hook and dial features of the

Broadcast Host and innkeeper 1 series digital hybrids. This little time-saver gives you call control you simply can’t get with an auxiliary telephone and a couple of switches. Connect

Guest Module 1 to your Broadcast Host and innkeeper 1 series digital hybrid using an 8 pin RJ45 modular cable. This cable provides remote power so there is no need for batteries or an external power pack. The Call button will flicker when a call comes in. Press this button to answer or place a call. The button will stay lit when a call is present. When you dial on-air, the tones go out on the line, and do not come back mixed with the dial tone or caller signal.

Guest Module 1 was designed exclusively for

JK Audio Broadcast Host and innkeeper 1 series digital hybrids.

About Digital Hybrids

Digital Hybrid

The purpose of a hybrid is to allow you to send and receive audio through a telephone line. The quality of the hybrid determines the amount of transmit audio that appears on the receive output jack, mixed with the caller’s voice. We use a proprietary dual-convergence echo canceller algorithm which continuously compares transmit and receive audio while building a model of the phone line. The first model is built within the first 200 milliseconds of the call. Afterwards, the algorithm continuously adapts to the phone line for the duration of the call. This system is not disturbed by changes such as someone taking an extension phone off-hook. Only your audio source is used as input to the algorithm. It does not require any noise bursts or “quiet time” to complete its mission. Bottom Line... Excellent separation all the time.

Multi-Line Digital Hybrid

innkeeper 2

innkeeper 2 and 4

Innkeeper 2 and innkeeper 4 squeeze two or four independent digital hybrids (respectively) into a 1U rack space. The front panel keypad, display, and handset jacks provide easy speed dialing and call setup. Digital hybrids allow you to send signals into the phone line while maintaining excellent separation between your voice and the caller. The balanced XLR output jacks contain only the caller’s voice.

The menu driven keypad and back lit display allow you to store 50 phone numbers by name in a phone list. You can also use the display to set features such as the number of rings before auto answer, master send channel selection, and test tone output. An auxiliary telephone jack is provided for each line.

The auxiliary telephone is disconnected when you press the “Call” button, and reconnected when you press the “Drop” button.

Digital hybrids connect audio signals to standard analog telephone lines without the transmit / receive crosstalk common to analog hybrids. The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) continuously monitors both the phone line and audio signals to deliver excellent separation. This proprietary, dual-convergence echo canceller algorithm can achieve excellent separation, typically exceeding 50 dB, without any setup and without sending a noise burst down the line.

Innkeeper 2 and 4 feature Auto-Answer/

Auto Disconnect for use in IFB and monitoring applications. Other applications include: telephone interviews, talk shows, church PA interface, and conference room full duplex applications.

Functions of the innkeeper 2 and 4

Keypad Dialing Master Send

Each phone line has an individual send and receive

XLR jack. While this should be enough for most applications, there are several applications that require a “Master” audio input. This additional XLR input mixes with the audio of the individual channel send jack. By default, the master input will mix into all four channels. The front panel menu system allows you to turn off the master signal from any or all phone lines.

Don’t let the display and cursor keys scare you. If you need to place a call, just press the

Call button on any line, then start dialing. To

“hang up” simply press Drop.

Remote Control

Included with your innkeeper 4 is a small terminal board with a 5 foot cable that attaches to the remote jack on the back panel. This terminal block contains two pins for each phone line. One pin provides

Off Hook indication which supplies current to a remote LED when the line is active. The second pin is for a remote toggle switch to take the corresponding line off or on hook.

Menu System

The cursor keys guide you through several features including speed dialing, test tone generation, Auto-Answer ring count, and

Master Send line muting. Speed dial list includes phone numbers referenced by an alpha text name such as “Bob Smith”. Test tone generation allows you to send a 1 kHz signal down any phone line or out any Caller output jack. This signal allows you to set levels on your existing audio equipment. Test signals are not a part of the auto-null tuning algorithm.

Auto-Answer can be set to pick up after 0-7 rings (0 = never answer).

Stereo Isolation Transformer

Pureformer

The Pureformer provides hum and noise reduction for sound cards and audio equipment, and removes ground loops and DC paths that can cause hum and signal breakup.

The Pureformer isolates the electrical grounds of two pieces of audio equipment. This is especially important in the case of computer audio cards connected to high quality/low noise audio equipment. The computer electrical ground is often filled with noise from disk drive activity and data transmission. Many audio cards use the same electrical ground for the computer and the audio signal. When the computer audio card is connected to your studio equipment, the electrical noise from the computer can leak into the rest of your audio system.

The Pureformer completely isolates the electrical ground of the two systems and only allows audio signals to pass through. Pureformer cannot remove noise once it has been mixed with the audio signal, so it is important to find and treat the source of each problem.

THAT-2

Connect the THAT-2 between your telephone and handset for quick access to audio in and out of the telephone. The THAT-2 is used by radio stations to record and play sound bites, and by TV and film sound crews to get IFB and dialog over phone lines.

The THAT-2 is the big brother of our model

THAT-1, which is very popular with news reporters for its small yet rugged design.

Over the years we’ve heard from many of our customers that they liked the THAT-1 but would prefer professional XLR jacks and compatibility with more telephone systems. Here is our answer... The THAT-2, a passive handset interface with professional and consumer jacks, separate input and output volume control, a selector switch for the different types of telephone systems, and still no batteries or

AC needed!

Simply unplug the handset coily cord from the base of your telephone and plug it directly into the THAT-2. Then, using the supplied cable, connect the THAT-2 back to the telephone.

Now connect your audio equipment to the

RCA or XLR jacks. The gray pushbutton selects which audio will be sent into the telephone (OUT = talking on the handset, IN

= sending audio in through the RCA or XLR jacks). The output jacks contain a nice mix of audio from both sides of the conversation as well as the tones being pressed on the telephone keypad. The THAT-2 has a threeposition switch which accommodates electret, dynamic, and carbon telephone handset microphone types. The THAT-2 will emulate the type of microphone that is in the handset and allow you send audio into many different types of analog and digital PBX sets, as well as ISDN telephones. The THAT-2 does not work with cellular telephones or any telephone with a keypad in the handset.
