The Henry Engineering Talent Pod is a user friendly device that establishes control over microphone and headphone levels for announcers. Announcers at sporting events, news casts and other applications have the ability to mix their own microphone audio and headphone output signals without effecting broadcasts, recordings, etc. The Talent Pod may be used as a standalone device, or linked with several Talent Pods via Cat-5 cable. Power is also distributed to additional Talent Pods while linked together. Additional features include microphone pre output, local and return control and left, center and right controls.
