Studio Technologies has announced the introduction of the Model 209 Talent Console, offering a combination of microphone input, headphone output, remote control, and tally-output resources.

The Model 209 is designed for a variety of podcast, voiceover rooms, and fixed/REMI broadcast applications. It supports AES67 and Dante Audio-over-Ethernet technology for integration into contemporary applications, as well as being compatible with Audinate’s Dante Domain Manager software application.

“While originally designed for podcasters, the Model 209 is an ‘all-Dante’ solution that can deliver audio in many modern broadcast applications,” says Gordon Kapes, President of Studio Technologies. “It offers a range of configurable features, with a highlight being the unit’s compatibility with the m!ca microphone mounting products from Yellowtec. With just two signal interconnections, the Model 209 can directly control both of its LED status indicators.”

The Model 209 integrates directly into Dante environments. An installation requires just a PoE Ethernet connection, a microphone, and headphones or an earpiece to establish a complete audio “position.” Additionally, remote control inputs and tally outputs allow personnel to deploy the unit in more complex applications.

By design, the unit is ready for integration with DSP-based processors or remote-control systems. The Model 209 can also provide a solution for REMI or “at-home” applications, sports and entertainment events for TV and radio, streaming broadcasts, corporate and government AV installations, and post-production facilities.

The Model 209 is configured using the Studio Technologies STcontroller software application. This allows technical personnel to select the unit’s operation modes to meet the exact needs of a specific installation. STcontroller versions, available free of charge at, are available to support the WinOS and macOS operating systems.
