Record high-quality phone interviews or broadcast back to the station
Connect a mic and headphones for a simple broadcast back to the station. Already at the station? Use Broadcast Host in your newsroom to record high quality interviews. Broadcast Host allows you to send mic and line level signals into the phone line while maintaining excellent separation between your voice and the caller. The stereo output jack on the back of the unit provides your voice on one channel and only the caller's voice on the other channel. The balanced XLR output jack contains only the caller's voice.

Crosstalk-free transmission over phone lines with excellent separation
The digital hybrid connects audio signals to a standard analog telephone line without the transmit / receive crosstalk common to analog hybrids. The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) continuously monitors both the phone line and audio signals to deliver excellent separation. This proprietary, dual-convergence echo canceller algorithm can achieve excellent separation, typically exceeding 50 dB, without any setup and without sending a noise burst down the line.

Mic, headphones, mixer, sound card, and phone connections
Broadcast Host provides connections for a microphone, headphones, mixer, sound card, telephone and your analog telephone line. An auxiliary telephone is only required to place outgoing calls. The auxiliary telephone is disconnected when you press the "Call" button, and reconnected when you press the "Drop" button.

Auto-Answer and Auto-Disconnect built in
Broadcast Host features Auto-Answer/Auto Disconnect for use in IFB and monitoring applications. Other applications include: telephone interviews, talk shows, church PA interface, and conference room full duplex applications.

Great Product

This performed as it was described a great way to get caller audio into your system and your voice back out to the caller. I use it not for podcasts, but my work with clients over the web.

Better than Telos One

If you need to pipe a client through your board, this little guy from KJ audio works wonders. For years I was using a Telos One, and Clients had a hard time hearing me. With this little guy, they hear me loud a clear. Worth having it on board. The only downside- does not have an ON OFF SWITCH so I plugged it into a power bar with a switch

Great Device!

The Broadcast Host does exactly what it's advertised to do. I can use this box to intercept an incoming call and route it into a track in my DAW. I've used the Broadcast Host for two applications so far at my studio...1. Having a producer listen in on a recording session (mainly for voice-over work) to provide feedback to the artist or the talent and 2. When conducting some sort of a radio show that requires callers to call in and give their opinion on a product or service. It's very simple to use and the customer support at JK Audio is phenomenal. I definitely recommend this device.
