The Kamesan KS-4320 MoniCough Switch from Tascam is a box designed for commentators in a broadcast situation. It acts as a preamp for the commentator's mic, integrates with the production intercom, and provides a headphone output. The KS-4320 has a mic preamp built-in, which offers phantom power to the mic (if needed). A mute button on the top allows the commentator to disable their mic. Depending on how much the commentator needs to speak, the button can be configured for push-to-mute, push-to-talk, or toggle On/Off.

The KS-4320 works with standard intercom communication systems. The input can be switched from line level, an RTS IFB feed, or either of the 2 ClearCom configurations. Pressing the TALKBACK button mutes the commentator's mic on the on-air feed, sending it to the intercom line for the production crew.

The KS-4320 can draw power from a 4-pin 12V input or it can run on 3-AA batteries for over 5 hours.
