The Expedition is a portable 2 channel, digital Broadcasters’ Phone with 7kHz HD Voice audio. It is used for live news and sport reporting or talkback situations. HD Voice is available on compatible 4G LTE and 3G UMTS networks. Narrowband calls are also available on 2G GSM, 3G UMTS, and 4G LTE networks.
A 2G GSM, 3G UMTS, and 4G LTE mobile phone with features specifically for broadcast.
High Quality Audio
The HD Voice system allows 7kHz mobile calls on compatible mobile networks using 3G UMTS or 4G LTE networks (see page 3).
There are independent, duplicated controls for both inputs. The illuminated on air button can be configured as latching, momentary or intelligent. There is a small gain control for setting input level.
Two Headphone Outputs
There are two x 6.35mm headphone sockets with a level adjust.
Battery power is available from 6 x AA batteries. There is also an external DC input from 10 – 15V.
The Expedition can be set to answer incoming calls automatically.
An output compressor prevents any peak in the audio being sent onto the HD Voice network. HD Voice is very sensitive to peaks and the output compressor improves the quality of the audio received at the remote end.
Glensound ‘Referee’ Input Compressor
Glensound’s Referee compressor has been specially designed and updated over many years, specifically to cope with the excessive peaks often associated with excited sports commentators.
Background Noise Suppressor
HD Voice features a background noise suppressor that greatly removes unwanted background noise.
Direct Line Output
A 3 pin XLR plug provides a clean output of the remote end of the call, with it’s own adjustable level control. This makes the Expedition a portable digital hybrid for a mobile telephone.
The Expedition has twin diversity aerials for improved reception and range when on the 4G LTE networks.
Each Expedition comes with the following accessories as standard: hard plastic case, plug top power supply, shoulder strap, pair of small SMA aerials, pair of performance SMA aerials.
