Studio Technologies unveils first esports-specific audio product

Model 207 incorporates both analogue and Dante audio-over-Ethernet

Studio Technologies has launched the Model 207, a new control hub for esports.

The console is optimised to address the microphone, audio monitoring, and interfacing needs of esports players and personnel. Housed in a tabletop enclosure, the unit incorporates both analogue and Dante audio-over-Ethernet technology to allow direct integration with personal computers and Ethernet-based audio networks.

It includes both a 5-pin female XLR and a 3.5mm 4-conductor TRRS jack, which means a wide range of headsets can be connected. The XLR connector supports traditional ‘professional’ headsets that are commonly used with intercom systems.

“As the popularity of esports has continued to grow, so has the expectations for the technology used by the competitors and event personnel,” said Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. “We saw a trend in customers using our existing products for broadcast and streaming esports applications. The results were adequate but not optimal, which led us to explore the field. We designed the Model 207 expressly to support the needs of these emerging applications.”
