The SPORTS POD Microphone/Headphone Controller & Intercom System from Henry Engineering is designed for use at sporting events, on-location broadcasts, or in any studio. This SPORTS POD system features an integrated intercom system, an active microphone audio On/Off switching, and the ability to remotely control the microphone. It solves the problem of providing the performer with a mix local and return (IFB) headphone audio, and provides duplex off-air communication with a producer or an engineer. Its simplicity allows for error-free use by non-technical users, and it provides an easy way to link several units for use at broadcasts with multiple announcers.

The illuminated microphone On/Off button of this system lets the announcer control the microphone; the cough button momentarily mutes the microphone audio. The microphone can also be turned On/Off via a remote push-button, with a Tally LED to remotely indicate when the microphone is On. The Talkback button lets the performer to talk to an off-site producer or an engineer. Pressing the Talkback button mutes microphone audio from the main (air) output, and sends it to the Talkback output. When used with a MultiPhones II Master unit, duplex off-air communication (intercom) is possible, allowing the producer to talk to the performer via the performer’s headphone audio.

The SPORTS POD System also provides control of the announcer’s headphone audio, allowing remote-site local audio to be mixed with the return audio that is sent to the site from the main studio. There are separate inputs for local and return audio with a volume control for each source, so the performer can adjust the mix in his headphones. To minimize confusion between the 2, two Pan switches can independently position local and return audio in the left, center, or right channel of the announcer’s headphones. The local button, on rear, allows monitoring the microphone via the Local headphone input if there is no source of local headphone audio. For studio installations, the Stereo mode will enable both the headphone channels to be controlled by the local volume control.

For broadcasts with multiple announcers, several SPORTS POD systems can be used so that each announcer can control his own microphone, headphone volume, mix, and pan settings. Multiple SPORTS POD systems can be quickly linked with Cat5 cables (sold separately), distributing power, local, and return headphone audio to all units and eliminating the need for multiple power sources, DAs, and complicated wiring. This system can be mixed and matched with Talent Pods, MiniPods, and Guest Pods (sold separately). It can be used separately or integrated with Henry Engineering’s MultiPhones system or SixMix USB Audio Console (sold separately).

The SPORTS POD Microphone/Headphone Controller & Intercom can be powered with an external wall transformer; a single transformer will power several units linked with Cat5 cables (sold separately). If used with a MultiPhones Master unit or a SixMix USB Console (sold separately), the transformer is not required. It can also be mounted using the Desk Mount or the wall/cabinet mounting brackets (sold separately).
