For monitoring, the commentator can choose any mix of his own Programme and Programme return, PA, International Sound, Guide and/or Auxiliary channel. Further, the unit allows the commentator to choose for which ear what signal is to be present in his headset. Without having close the programme circuit.
The CCU rack is the control unit of the Commentary Unit and controls up to 10 commentary positions and has for each commentary position 4 independent recordable ID message tracks for id. and system line-up. The CCU provides a wide array of operational possibilities such as talk-back to commentators and remote studios or OB-vans, connection of additional audio services for commentators, etc. Summarising, the DCS-10 is a system that adapts perfectly to any technical and operational requirements for the broadcasting of an international sport event.
