The Design of Speech Input Consoles for Television

Document Thumbnail

This paper outlines briefly the basic requirements for a speech input console specifically designed for television service, noting the differences from normal AM practice. Two actual systems designs are presented-the first being that for a large studio setup and the second being for smaller centers. The larger installation, of the type used at CBC's Montreal and Toronto studios, possesses certain unique features which facilitate the production of a sound component well matched to the picture. The smaller system may be used either in its basic form or with two similar units integrated mechanically and electrically to form a highly flexible double-channel console. Both designs are shown to be eminently suitable for high-grade sound broadcasting.
