STAC is a telephone talk management system that puts you in control of your talk shows, call-ins and phoners with great sound, ease of operation and scalable configuration.


STAC incorporates a pair of Comrex high-performance digital hybrids with automatic audio level control. The result is the most natural sounding telephone audio, even when conferencing multiple callers. A compact, rack-mounting mainframe houses the hybrids, the multiline controller and all telephone and audio connections.


Call screening and control are available from any networked computer, using a standard web browser, with the included STAC IP. With STAC IP, your talent can host their shows from anywhere there is an Internet connection or you can economically create more control points from any computer on your local network.


The STAC interface features a clean, logical design, which allows functions to be mastered quickly. Dedicated buttons, with associated multicolor LEDs, minimize the number of button presses and make it easy to determine status of phone lines and callers.





Key STAC Features


Dual, high performance digital hybrids for reliable, natural sounding caller audio, even when conferencing.


Configurations for six and 12 phone lines. Easy to expand in field.


Flipping a switch on the back of a control surface is all that is required to select Studio/Producer or Screener Mode.


A standard web browser can be used on any locally networked or Internet connected computer for call screening and control.


Auto Attendant for automatically answering incoming calls with your custom outgoing message. Call is answered after two or six rings, the message is played and, at the end of the message, the line is put on hold. If no message is recorded, lines will automatically be answered and put on hold. Function selected from control surface.


Two phone lines can be assigned to VIP mode, removing them from the priority rotation and Auto Attendant. These can be reserved for placing outgoing calls and incoming hot lines.


Selectable auto-disconnect of calls termintated by caller.


Selectable automatic gain control for consistent levels on-air and send audio down the line to your callers. A separately controllable caller level boost may also be used.


Talent can maintain "control" of the conversation by using selectable caller ducking that lowers caller audio level when talent speaks.





STAC Mainframe


No configuration required after initial installation. Set-up controls are behind an easy-access panel and include pots for level adjustments and DIP switches for configuring Auto Attendant, auto-disconnect, automat- ic audio gain control, VIP and other settings.


Front panel features three bicolor LEDs indicating level status of audio input and hybrid levels.


Telephone line connections provide loop-thru to other systems or tele- phone sets sensing loop-thru provided for PBX interconnection.


STAC Breakout Kit available for converting RJ45 connectors to 3x RJ11 connectors.


Callers are conferenced within the STAC mainframe requiring only one mix-minus audio input to feed both hybrids.


A separate audio input is used for program-on-hold.


Each hybrid has an individual audio output to send to your audio mixing console or router.


A third audio output sums the two callers with the host audio—great for connection to a recording device.


• Hybrid Expansion Port allows for addition of external discreet hybrid. Useful when conferencing of callers isn’t desirable or for split studio applications.


Ethernet port allows the integrated web server to deliver call screening info and to control all call functions via STAC IP.


Software is field upgradable via compact flash port.
