Algo 8301 IP Paging Adapter

IP Paging Adapter for Traditional Analog
Amplifiers
The 8301 is a PoE IP Paging Adapter for integrating
existing and traditional paging solutions into a VoIP
environment, whether premise or cloud. Features include
G.722 wideband support with isolated and balanced line
output for optimum clarity and intelligibility without hum or
noise.
Multicast capability allows scalability for any number of
amplifiers as well as integration with Algo IP speakers
in zoned and large scale applications. Each 8301 can
be configured for up to 50 page zones with more zoning
capability when multiple 8301s are deployed.
To the network side, the 8301 is a SIP endpoint for
easy integration with an IP telephone system and easily
configured using the intuitive web interface or provisioning
capabilities. On the paging side, the 8301 provides
balanced audio output using both an XLR connector and
terminal block for easy connection to an amplifier, along
with a dry contact closure if required by the amplifier.
Further speech enhancement is provided by automatic
level control, choice of frequency masks, and optional
speech compression. Output level is compatible with
consumer, commercial, and pro-audio amplifiers requiring
either -10 dBm, 0 dBm, or +4 dBu line level.
An audio input (also balanced and isolated to prevent
equipment ground loops) can be used for auxiliary input
or insertion of the 8301 between existing equipment. This
allows IP based paging or emergency notification to take
control of the amplifier as necessary.
The 8301 also includes a scheduler for automated and
precise play of WAV files suitable for school bells and
public announcements. Messages may also be triggered
manually by placing a SIP call or pressing an optional
external call button.
