STUDIO TECHNOLOGIES Model 5205 Mic/Line Input to Dante Interface
General-purpose audio input device for use in Dante Audio-over-Ethernet applications. The rugged, compact, and
portable unit features two mic/line inputs with adjustable gain, P48 phantom power, and level metering. The unit
requires an Ethernet with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection to supply both the data interface as well as power.
Can also be powered by a PoE midspan power supply. See Accessories for PS-POE-01, purchased separately.
The Model 5205 Mic/Line to Dante Interface is a general-purpose audio device that supports applications utilizing the Dante Audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. Two analog microphone or line-level audio signals can be connected to the Model 5205. They are amplified as required and then converted to digital audio channels on an associated Dante connection. With the inherent interoperability of Dante, the Model 5205 can be used with other Studio Technologies Dante-enabled products or a multitude of devices from many other manufacturers.
Microphone or line-level balanced analog audio signals are connected using two 3-pin XLR connectors. Using front-panel pushbutton switches the gain of the associated microphone preamplifier circuitry can be selected for 0, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 dB. P48 phantom power is provided to support condenser microphones. Separate pushbutton switches control the on/off status of phantom power. LEDs display the status of the gain and phantom power functions. Multi-step LED meters provide confirmation of the level of the two Dante transmitter (output) audio channels.
The audio quality of the Model 5205's two audio channels is excellent, with low distortion, low noise, and high headroom. Careful circuit design and rugged components ensure long, reliable operation. A wide range of applications can be supported, including TV, radio, and streaming broadcast events, corporate and government AV installations, and post-production facilities.
The Model 5205 requires an Ethernet connection to supply both the data interface as well as Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) power. This requires an Ethernet connection from a PoE-enabled Ethernet switch. Alternately, the Model 5205 can be powered by an external midspan PoE power injector.
