can also use STL-IP Connect over an existing company LAN at your
radio station - so you can do a live report from your desk instead
of going into the studio. Then again, your desk might even be in

STL-IP Connect system works in the following way:
STL-IP Connect software installs on your Laptop or PC.
connect your microphone and headphones to your Laptop - the built
in soundcard is normally sufficient quality for news use.
can also use a professional audio interface, or we can supply
USB headsets which are very easy to use and offer excellent quality
(and they are hands free!).
connect to the studio (where they have the STL-IP rackmount unit
installed) and do your live report... STL-IP Connect gives a live,
studio quality, low delay connection that is bi-directional (so
you can get program cue back in your headphones if needed).
File Playback functionality allows you to use pre-produced
audio on your computer during a live connection. For example, you
might use clips of an earlier interview or audio recorded at a press
conference during a live broadcast. Or you might use this function
to send an entire report that you have pre-produced on your computer
back to the studio, or play it into the program live.
