Overview

Introducing the innkeeper 1x/1rx™

Innkeeper 1x and innkeeper 1rx will allow you to send and receive audio over analog telephone lines. While this may seem like a simple task that any telephone can do, the challenge is getting the best quality audio from such a miserable audio path.

What is a Digital Hybrid?

The innkeeper 1x/1rx digital hybrid 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 (Digital Signal Processor) to continuously monitor the phone line and local audio signals to deliver excellent trans-hybrid loss, also known as separation. Our dual-convergence algorithm can achieve excellent separation, typically exceeding 50 dB.

Ready to go?

The innkeeper 1x/1rx controls and connectors are clearly marked and ready for operation. If this is your first exposure to a hybrid, we suggest that you read the entire manual to allow you to take advantage of all these features.

Any Questions?

Before you pick up the phone... Please thumb through the rest of this manual.

You might find those deep technical questions are covered on later pages.

Getting Connected

Setting Up

1. Connect the supplied RJ-11 phone line cable between the jack marked

<Line> and your wall jack. Be sure this jack supports standard single line analog telephone operation.

2. Connect to your mixer using the Mix-Minus method. See Figure 7a.

A mix-minus signal is an audio signal that contains a mix of your local microphones plus any other audio, minus the Caller’s own voice. Sending the Caller’s audio back to the innkeeper 1x/1rx will cause an echo, or feedback.

1. Connect a microphone or mixing console output XLR cable to the

<Send> jack on the innkeeper. Be sure to set the innkeeper <Mic/Line> switch to the proper position for your application.

2. Connect the <Caller> jack to a line level input on your mixing console.

For whichever input channel you have the <Caller> connected to on the mixer, turn the corresponding <Aux> control to minimum. All other

<Aux> controls should be set for audio sent to the phone line. Each

<Aux Send> bus is completely separate from all other outputs, so these Aux controls will not affect what is heard on the Main outputs or on any other Aux buses. We recommend using an <Aux Send> bus that is pre-fader, so you can use the fader controls to set the levels of each channel to the main output without affecting what is sent to the phone line. If your mixer does not have an <Aux Send> bus, you can use <Pan> controls with the Left and Right outputs. Pan all the microphones, etc. to the Left output and pan the Caller to the Right output. Then connect only the <Left> output to the innkeeper 1x/1rx

<Send>. Or, you may use an external Mix-Minus box that will create this signal for you.

3. Connect the supplied AC power cord to the back of the innkeeper and then to an AC power outlet.

Your innkeeper 1x/1rx is now ready to take calls. You may want to connect an auxiliary telephone to the innkeeper <Phone> jack so you can dial out and set up calls, or use the <Auto-Answer> feature to answer incoming calls.

Place a test call to a quiet location. Set the <Send> level control so that while you are speaking into the microphone, the Send LEDs on the hybrid light the -20 dB green LED consistently and flash the -9 dB green LED. If you flash the -3 dB red LED, lower the level. Set the <Caller> control for good recording level of the caller audio at the output jack.

Operation

8

Send Signal Level

The <Send> LEDs display the signal level as it goes out to the phone line. The goal is to drive the phone line at high enough levels to avoid phone line noise, but not so loud as to cause excessive clipping. Adjust the <Send> level control until you see occasional flashes of the second green LED (-9dB) and very rarely any flashes of the red -3dB peak Send LED. These flashes should occur only during loud speech bursts. If the red LED stays lit for extended periods you can assume that much of your speech is being clipped or distorted. In this case you should lower the <Send> volume control.

Receive Signal Level

The <Receive> LEDs display the signal coming from the phone line and out of the DSP. The <Caller> level control does not change what you see on these

LEDs. Adjust the <Caller> level control to give you the best signal at your equipment.

AGC

When the Automatic Gain Control <AGC> is used, innkeeper 1x/1rx automatically adjusts the <Caller> level to maintain acceptable levels between calls. In this way an unusually loud caller will be similar in level to the unusually soft caller.

Caller Ducking

The Caller <Ducking> option lowers the level of the Caller’s audio by 9 dB when local audio is present. This is a good way to regulate those obnoxious callers when the talent is speaking.

Presence

The <Presence> feature is a custom digital filter that boosts low frequencies in the 120Hz to 500Hz region to compensate for losses in the telephone network.

This is a single ended algorithm that treats only the Caller signal before it leaves the digital hybrid. You may notice that it has more of an effect on low pitched, or deeper voices.

1 kHz Tone Generator

The <1 kHz tone> generator is a three-state button used for setting levels on your other equipment. It is not used to null the phone line. When pressed once a full scale 0dB maximum output level signal is sent down the phone line. This will allow you to calibrate levels at the other end of the call. When pressed again, this same signal is sent to the <Caller> output only. This will allow you to calibrate the signal level at your console. The tone generator is disabled when pressed a third time.

Auto-Answer

The <Auto-Answer> feature will answer on the first ring. When <Auto-Answer> is enabled, you can still make calls manually using the <Call> button.

When finished, you can either drop the call manually or allow the call to

Auto-Disconnect. innkeeper will look for a CPC (Calling-Party-Control)disconnect signal or ROH (Receiver-Off-Hook) message from the phone company to determine when a call has disconnected. This can take up to a minute.

innkeeper 1x/1rx™

Digital Hybrid

Configuration

Auxiliary Telephone

innkeeper 1x/1rx does not disconnect the auxiliary telephone when you press the <Call> button. You can use an auxiliary phone to place or screen a call and then place it on hold. When you are ready to take the call on innkeeper 1x/1rx, simply press the <Call> button. Your telephone will automatically release the hold. If you need to take the call back on the aux telephone, simply pick up the telephone handset before the innkeeper 1x/1rx <Drop> button is pressed. If you prefer to disconnect the aux phone when the hybrid takes a call, please refer to the Optional Jumper Settings section below for Jumpers 2 and 3.

Optional Jumper Settings

To change the setting of an internal jumper, disconnect power from the hybrid and remove the cover of the innkeeper 1x/1rx. The default jumper position is Closed (covering both pins). To Open the jumper, remove the jumper or cover just one pin.

Warning! The AC cable must be unplugged from the back of the innkeeper any time the case is opened. Failure to follow these instructions could result in in injury or death.

Jumper 1: Attenuation

If the incoming caller level is too high and peaking the red -3 dB LED, change Jumper 1 to the Open position. This will provide 6 dB attenuation of the incoming audio signal. This does not affect transmit level.

Jumpers 2 & 3: Auxiliary Telephone

In the factory default Closed position, the <Line> jack and <Phone> jacks are Bridged.

In the optional Open position, the jacks are Switched.This means that when the <Call> button is pressed, any phones connected to the phone jack of the innkeeper are disconnected.

Configuration

Configuration

Custom Dry Line Installation

Innkeeper 1x/1rx was designed to work on standard (wet) telephone lines as well as on custom PBX (dry) lines. Dry line installation is always a custom configuration and requires substantial telephone system knowledge. These installations are found in radio and television studios for both PBX and intercom applications.

Wet lines are typical tip / ring telephone lines that carry ring voltage, talk battery, and full duplex, balanced audio over two wires to an analog telephone. Dry lines carry the balanced, full duplex audio but without the ring voltage or talk battery.

Innkeeper does allow dry line operation with a few limitations:

• If talk battery is not present when the <Call> button is pressed, a dry line is assumed.

• If talk battery suddenly appears during a dry line call, it becomes a wet line call, and auto-disconnect will occur when a disconnect signal occurs, or if talk battery disappears.

• Auto-answer does not work on a dry line.

• The aux telephone jack will not support an analog telephone during a dry line call.

FAQs

1. Does the innkeeper 1x/1rx send a burst or beep down the phone line at the beginning of each call like our current hybrid?

No. Innkeeper 1x uses the actual transmit signal to evaluate the phone line and tune its algorithm. As you begin to speak, innkeeper 1x is hard at work canceling your voice from the Caller Output jack. Within milliseconds your voice is reduced into the noise floor.

2. Will your innkeeper 1x/1rx provide phantom power for my condenser microphone?

No, our devices will not provide phantom power. If you plan to connect your microphone directly to an innkeeper 1x, you should use a dynamic mic.

3. Are there more ASCII commands I can send through the serial cable or can I add my own?

The complete list of currently acceptable commands is listed on page 12.

4. Where is the software to control the serial port?

There is no software provided with the innkeeper 1x/1rx. You will provide your own terminal emulator, such as Hyper-Terminal.

5. How do I know what firmware my innkeeper 1x/1rx is running on and how can I update it?
