DH30
Digital Telephone Hybrid
With the variety of phone systems in the world today, it is
becoming increasingly difficult to have all callers sound
the same on-air. To help bring uniformity and high quality
sound to a broadcast talk show environment, we have
created the DH30. The DH30 provides a high quality
interface between a standard telephone line and your
audio equipment.
Designed with both AES/EBU and analog inputs and
outputs, the DH30 can interface with the latest digital and
analog consoles. To ensure quality sound in studios that
have open speakers and microphones, the DH30 was
created with an acoustic echo cancellation feature.
The DH30's digital signal processing (DSP) has multiple adjustable parameters to provide you with the best
send and caller audio signals. New audio processing
features such as the compressor and downward expander
functions ensure that the best audio reaches your
audience. All audio processing features are programmable
via the front panel controls. For the deepest, most reliable
hybrid null, and the best quality caller audio for your
application, the DH30 is the answer.
Easy to use and install, the DH30 has simple front
panel controls and remote control capability. These
controls put the On, Off, Rec, and Cue functions right at
your fingertips. The DH30 also includes a 2W
monitor amp with volume controls right on the front
panel. The Rec function sends a start/stop signal to your
external recording device. The Cue function allows you to
control which audio signal should be sent to the caller,
allowing you to switch from the Send input to the Cue
input at the touch of a button.
The DH30 features acoustic echo cancellation to
ensure quality sound in studios with open mics.
