DS Digital Intercom

 

In today’s high-pressure production environments, intercoms must provide the timely and reliable communications that are critical for coordinating complex, fast-paced events. Whether at work in a theater, concert hall, performance centre, touring show, convention hall, or broadcast facility, the intercom supplies a vital information link that keeps activities flowing smoothly.

The ASL Digital Intercom network

Advanced Intercom Matrixing (AIMTM), the core technology within all systems, helps make ASL Digital Intercoms remarkably easy to install and operate. The ASL engineers created a proprietary network protocol ideally matched to “fail-safe” intercom applications. ASL Digital Intercom networks can be configured using star, daisy- chain or in-line topologies. System designers can choose the approach that is most efficient and cost-effective for the given application.

 

Matrix Units

Each compact (1U) matrix unit serves up to 40 users (beltpacks or speaker stations), and up to six units may be linked via Cat-5, COAX or  ber optic cable (using the equivalent link module) to expand capacity up to 240 user stations.

 

Straightforward, intuitive operation

The ASL Digital Intercom system is exceptionally functional and easy to use. Signal lights are easy to recognize, and offer adjustable brightness. Controls are large and clearly labeled. The DS 290 beltpacks have the unique iN-touchTM “iPod- like” touch-sensitive volume controls. The ”Audio Detect” function on speaker stations allows the operator to see which channels carry audio. In every respect, the ASL Digital Intercom controls and displays reflect thoughtful design as well as close consultation with long-time intercom users.

 

Person-to-Person and text (SMS) communication

In addition to conference communication (between users in user groups), ASL’s networking technology allows direct person-to-person communication (like a telephone call) from any user station to any other user station, without tying up a channel. In addition, ASL Digital Intercom offers text messaging from a keypad speaker station to any other user station. This can prove extremely valuable when an operator is temporarily away from his or her station, or cannot immediately respond to a voice call.

DS 4002 M Master

A single DS 4002 M Master Matrix (19”/1U) is the centerpiece of a basic ASL Digital Intercom system for as many as 40 users. The user stations are connected via five Intercom Line connectors on the rear panel. Each Intercom Line contains the data for a maximum of eight user stations. The Intercom Line connectors also supply +48 VDC over the Cat-5 cable; this power is available to beltpacks and smaller speaker stations that do not have their own power supplies.

DS 1642 Speaker Station

The DS 1642 16-channel Speaker Station (19”/1U) provides comprehensive and exceptionally flexible communication facilities for users at key command locations. Housed in a compact 1U frame, the DS 1642 enables instant TALK and LISTEN access to 16 separate user groups.

Desk Top Speaker Stations

ASL Digital Tabletop Speaker Stations provide comprehensive, flexible and user-friendly communications in a smartly styled, 3U angled surface-mount cabinet. There are five different Desk Top Speaker Stations available - the DS 230, DS 830, DS DS1630, DS 2430 (image above) and DS3230.

DS 290 Beltpack

The DS 290 2-channel beltpack offers all the features expected in any high-quality 2-channel unit: separate TALK and CALL buttons, separate volume controls, MENU button, PTP button, separate activity indicators, and a factory option for use with binaural headsets.
