RTS’ new DKP-4016 desktop intercom key panel was launched at the ISE show in Amsterdam. The KP-Series is designed for a wide range of intercom applications such as broadcast production studios, theater and sports venues, houses of worship and outside broadcast (OB) trucks.
The new DKP-4016 desktop keypanel is available as both as a desktop and a wall-mount version and can be operated with all existing RTS matrices. This is ensured by a comprehensive set of connectors, including general purpose input/output (GPIO) and rear connector (RC). RJ45, Ethercon and fiber module (SFP) sockets enable full connectivity to either analog four-wire or digital IP networks; two different headset connectors (four-pin and five-pin) and one analog auxiliary (AUX) input offer numerous connectivity options.
The DKP-4016 features OMNEO IP technology on board. OMNEO is based on two key technologies — the media transmission component Dante from Audinate Pty, Australia and the system-control component OCA (Open Control Architecture). By utilizing open public standards, OMNEO provides highest interoperability, flexibility, reliability, resilience and future-proof technology. OMNEO enables a secure setup at a competitively low system cost due to the use of standard IT components, simplified installation and lower maintenance costs.
Like all new KP-series devices, the DKP-4016 desktop keypanel features a full-color, wide-angle high-definition display, which is always readable — even under difficult lighting conditions. The 16 four-way lever keys are ergonomically designed for the specific use as desktop/wall-mount versions and provide listen/talk and cross point level functions.
The DKP-4016 desktop keypanel delivers superior audio quality free of noise and other audible artifacts. Sturdy housing and field-tested lever-keys also contribute to the improved usability of KP-Series keypanels. A lockable power connector ensures interruption-free operation, especially in the wall-mount configuration. Rubber feet at the bottom of the device provide maximum stability. The DKP-4016 desktop keypanel is also suitable for expanding its functions via future software updates.
The RTS DKP-4016 will be available worldwide in spring 2016. More details are here.
