Features Description Downloads Ask a Question

  • Optional single producer's unit
  • CAT 5 cable links with 150m range
  • 6 monitoring sources

This CAT 5 system is very popular in studios where having small, individual commentary boxes is an advantage. The two programme outputs also make it very useful when the same event may require two separate commentary outputs. For example, two separate programmes in different languages, or one programme for the 2D commentary and the other for the 3D commentary. The CAT5 link also provides a high audio quality level. A very versatile all round commentary system.

GS-GC21B Commentary Control Unit

There is a front panel microphone for engineer talkback. The engineer has access to pushbuttons for direct talkback to each individual commentator, talkback 2 and 3, and the 2 producer's circuits. There is a separate line ident for each of the 2 programme outputs. Each of the 4 commentators can be selected to either the programme 1 or programme 2 outputs. All outputs are on the rear panel and are on D-type connectors with direct commentator pre-fades, master I/O and talkback.  They are all on separate connectors.

The front panel features a 6.35mm jack socket for headphone monitoring where there are two pots for level adjust of the left ear and the right ear. Talkbacks are coloured red and are presented in the left ear, all other monitoring sources are coloured green and appear in the right ear. The monitoring outputs are also presented on a D-type connector on the rear of the unit. There is a 14 segment LED PPM meter.

There is an internal switch mode power supply 100-250v AC.

The remote unit links going back to the GS-GC21B are all via CAT5. This link carries bi-directional audio information, data, and power, and has a maximum useable distance of 150m.
