Microphone & Speaker

Microphone & Speaker

This combination of a network interface and a table top microphone with speaker, will connect directly into a SoftRadio system.
For use in places where you have no radio units and no operator PC.
We call it Direct Talk position.

There are situations where a dispatcher would like to talk to a person in a control room, or other place, where a SoftRadio operator PC or a portable radio is not suitable.

Below are some examples of how the system can be used as an add-on to radio remote control in SoftRadio.

Situation room

You are working in a (temporary) situation room. You don´t want to be disturbed by radios talking or a whole dispatch PC. But from time to time you need to quickly talk to the dispatchers that operate the radios. Just push PTT!

Secure location

You have a room where radios are not allowed, copper wires are not allowed and PC´s are not allowed. Place a Direct Talk microphone here and connect with fibre cable.

Supervisor control

Using the CrossPatch function in SoftRadio a supervisor can connect each Direct Talk microphone to one radio at a time. And change the use totally in the next instance.

Lunch room

You need to get hold of a person that is on his break. With a speaker and microphone in the lunch room, you can talk to that person from the radio dispatcher.

Interface and Microphone

The microphone has a built in speaker and PTT key. It connects directly to a network interface and from there over any IP connection to the larger SoftRadio system.

For the SoftRadio dispatcher it looks and works like a radio device in the GUI.

Cross patch to radio

If the SoftRadio dispatcher has the option CrossPatch installed, the operator can patch a radio call to the microphone. Thus making it possible to talk to any radio from the fixed microphone.

Connection direct to a radio

You can aslo build a system that connects the microphone directly to a radio, without going through a SoftRadio system. Read more here.
