The Radial mPress is a modular press box that can be expanded as needed to feed a community-sized press gallery or distribute audio for an international event.
The design begins with the mPress; a master head distribution amplifier that is equipped with two microphone inputs, two balanced line level inputs, 48V phantom power for condenser microphones and a built-in limiter to prevent overload from overly rambunctious orators. Eight balanced mic or line level outputs may be used to supply feeds to a small press gathering. For larger system requirements, a series of modular Exo-Pods™ may be deployed. These external modules are connected using standard mic cables and feature ten balanced outputs and four mini 3.5mm TRS connections to feed portable recorders or hand-held video cameras. In order to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops, stray DC currents and less than ideal powering systems, all outputs are transformer isolated.
The mPress modular approach replaces the spaghetti of cables that usually hampers setups with an orderly system that enables one to create zones for various groups. From each of the mPress XLR outputs as many as four Exo-Pods may be chained together, for a total of 320 microphone or line level outputs and 128 recorder outputs. A built-in 1kHz test tone provides everyone with a reference level and the built-in headphone amplifier helps when trouble shooting. To simplify setups, a main stereo output is available to feed a pair of powered speakers and broadcast the event to an audience. Separate audio inputs also enable the mPress to play background music while waiting for the guest speaker to appear.
The mPress... a modular press box designed to grow to suit your needs.
Using the mPress as a basic eight out press box
In this setup, you are using the eight balanced outputs on the mPress to feed the press gallery without using the Exo-Pods. Set the outputs to low and connect using standard mic cables.
Using the mPress in a star configuration
Connect as many as eight Exo-Pods to the mPress to create eight separate zones – each with 14 outputs for a total of 112 press feeds. All of the outputs are isolated to eliminate noise!
Extending the outputs in a series configuration
Daisy-chain one Exo-Pod into the next to expand the system while reducing cable mess. Setting the mPress outputs to high enables almost unlimited press feeds!
