GLENSOUND BROADCASTERS MOBILE PHONES - 3G

Glensound HD Voice Broadcasters' Mobile Phones make it possible to use the 3G UMTS network as an audio link, with a bandwidth of up to 7kHz, for broadcast applications. The increased bandwidth is more suitable for live reporting applications as well as higher-quality IFB and talk back applications. Should a 3G network not be available, they will also act as a normal quad-band 2G GSM phone. They have balanced, line-level connections, with XLR connectors, for ease of interfacing to broadcast mixers, recorders, or computers. The portable version also has a dynamic microphone input. The phones connect as a voice call, so will have the same quality of service as a normal mobile phone call. The call quality will remain constant over the duration of the call regardless of the number of other mobile phones being used in the area. As a result, they are particularly suitable for reporting in highly-congested mobile phone areas such as football matches or concert venues.

The phones connect to 3G mobile phone services, as well as 2G. When connected to a 3G service offering 'HD voice', they provide a bandwidth of approximately 7kHz; a substantial increase in audio quality compared to a 2G or PSTN phone. However, in order to take advantage of the increased bandwidth, the call must be received by another 3G phone using 'HD voice'. Glensound 3G phones can be used to connect to PSTN or 2G phones, but in these cases the bandwidth increase is lost.

Glensound also offer 2G mobile phones. These connect to a mobile network and offer an audio bandwidth of approximately 3kHz. They can make a call to a another mobile phone or a PSTN phone number. With PSTN, the audio contribution can be accepted by an existing telephone hybrid, coupler or a phone-in system. Alternatively a Glensound portable or rack-mounting mobile phone can be used to receive the call, either at fixed premises, or on location, say in a outside broadcast vehicle. The 2G models are suitable for areas where 3G 'HD voice' services are simply not available, or it is not possible to have a 3G 'HD voice' phone at both ends of the connection, or simply that the enhanced audio quality is not required, perhaps for a cue feed.

In 3G UMTS mode, the standard version offers 900MHz, 1900MHz, and 2100MHz bands. An optional 3G UMTS version is available for compatibility in other parts of the world offering 850MHz, 1900MHz, and 2100MHz. In 2G GSM mode, they connect to any quad-band network at 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, and 1900MHZ for international compatibility. Audio bandwidth is 50Hz to 7kHz in 3G mode or 300Hz to 3.4kHz in 2G. Audio circuits are shielded from radio frequency interference, so the self generated RF will not interfere with the audio.

A large LED flashes and a sounder, which can be switched off, rings to indicate incoming calls; there is a variable auto answer. A nine-memory phone-book offers access to stored numbers and a redial button can be used to call the last-called number. A 6.35mm A/B gauge headphone socket is available for monitoring. The balanced, analogue, (XLR) audio inputs and outputs have separate controls for level adjustment. The aerial is connected by a standard SMA socket; different aerials may be connected. Power is supplied by 4x AA batteries in portable units, or, optionally, an external DC source. Rack mounting models mostly have an internal switch-mode supply, some are available as alternative models which accept DC power.

GS-MPITBU003 - Rack mounting - With line-powered telephone hybrid

This is a single mobile phone in the same rack mounting case as an independent line-powered telephone balancing unit: The two are completely independent in operation. The mobile phone section on the left of the front panel is similar to the phone module in the GS-MPI005HD.

It has the dialling keypad with nine-number phone book and the slot for a SIM card. Two large square buttons are used to dial or hang-up a call, each with LED status indicators. Configurable auto answer may be selected. There are separate level controls for the input and output levels, +/- 10dB; a volume control sets the level for the A/B gauge 6.35mm jack socket for headphones of 200 - 2000 ohms impedance. An LED indicates that the compressor/limiter is active to aid setting the input level. A tri-colour LED indicates the signal strength. Advanced configuration allows setting of echo canceller, noise suppressor, peak compressor, and headphone audible alert.

On the right of the front panel there is a line-powered GS-PASTE 201 telephone balancing unit. This is a manually-balanced TBU, requiring no power supply as power is received from the analogue (POTS) telephone line. It provides a balanced, line-level audio input to and output from the telephone line. A large switch provides for on hook, off hook operation, with an adjacent LED to indicate an incoming call; a switch selects the ringer to be on or off. A recessed button enables a noise source. This facilitates the impedance matching of the analogue phone line using the three, capacitance, resistance, and balance controls. Instructions are printed on the panel to assist with this. Two rotary controls set the audio send and receive levels. A tri-colour LED indicates blue for off-hook, green for -10dB or red for -3dB referred to nominal phone line level.

The mobile phone section on the right of the front panel is similar to the phone module in the GS-MPI005HD.

It has the dialling keypad with nine-number phone book and the slot for a SIM card. Two large square buttons are used to dial or hang-up a call, each with LED status indicators. Configurable auto answer may be selected. There are separate level controls for the input and output levels, +/- 10dB; a volume control sets the level for the A/B gauge 6.35mm jack socket for headphones of 200 - 2000 ohms impedance. An LED indicates that the compressor/limiter is active to aid setting the input level. A tri-colour LED indicates the signal strength. Advanced configuration allows setting of echo canceller, noise suppressor, peak compressor, and headphone audible alert.

The digital hybrid is on the left side of the front panel. A keypad and a single on/off hook switch are used to dial and receive calls. An LED illuminates when connected and turns off when disconnected. A sounder, which can be disabled for studio environments, provides indication of incoming calls. There are separate level controls for the input and output levels of the hybrid. The switch to select which link - the mobile phone or the hybrid - is in use is a large paddle switch, located centrally. LEDs indicate which is in use.

The rear panel has a female and a male XLR providing the balanced, analogue, line-level, audio input (0dBu) and output (+13dBu maximum). The antenna connection to the mobile phone is an SMA type. An RJ11 socket accepts the connection to a standard analogue telephone. A screwdriver operated switch selects between 13 different country settings to set line impedance levels. An IEC inlet accepts 100-240V AC. RF power output: 2W. Dimensions: 486 x 223 x 44(w x d x h) mm; 1U rack mounting. Weight: 1.78 kg.

Included accessories: T-bar aerial, 2.5m cable.

N-Type Aerial Upgrade Kit

This is an upgrade for the GS-MPI005HD and the GS-MPI007HD that allow placement of the aerial up to 50m away from the main unit. It must be ordered at the same time as the base unit.

While external aerials may be connected to the standard SMA socket to improve transmission and reception, the benefits are limited to cables with a length of up to approximately three metres, due to the losses in cables types which actually can be fitted to an SMA plug. This upgrade replaces the SMA connector with an N-type connector, which can take larger diameter cables, such as flexible 'LR-400' style, for use with lengths up to 25 metres, or semi-flexible 'LDF4A-50A' or equivalent 'heliax' style, for use up to 50 metres.

Included accessories: N-Type aerial, N-Type male and female connectors for LR-400 style cable, and N-type wall mount bracket.
Optional accessories: Pre-terminated cables are available in multiples of one metre, flexible and semi-flexible, in lengths up to 25 and 50 metres respectively. Please contact Sales for assistance.
