Producing “Inside the Jewelry Trade” requires several pieces of pro grade audio and electrical components to get broadcast sound quality .
When it comes to interviews, one component is critical, the JK Audio Broadcast Host.
The JK Audio Broadcast
Host is a “Must Have” for
online radio shows.
Interviewing guests is an important segment for many online radio shows.
Often the simplest, least evasive way to do the interview is the land based telephone.
So how do you produce a great sounding interview over a communication network that was developed in the last century?
When you compare the 8 hz sampling rate of most land line telephones to the 44.1 khz sampling rate of a compact disc you easily see the potential sound quality issue.
Toss in the fact that on land based telephone lines the interviewer and interviewee’s voice are using the same line, you quickly run into problems in capturing a broadcast quality audio stream.
That is unless you have a JK Audio Broadcast Host.
What is JK Audio Broadcast Host?
The JK Audio Broadcast Host is a telephone / audio desk top studio interface designed for integration with computer based work stations, mixers, and recorders.
This digital hybrid connects audio signals to a standard analog telephone line without the common transmit / receive crosstalk you normally run into.
“Many professional on-air
radio stations use this exact
digital hybrid model for their
telephone interviews and call
In one simple device you have everything you need to get talk show quality phone recordings into your mixer or sound card.
A 16-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) continuously samples both the phone line and the audio signals to deliver voice separation.
All of this happens through a proprietary, dual-convergence echo cancelling algorithm which can exceed 50 db right out of the box without any setup on your part.
Seriously, you have to love technology when it works like this.
