Talkback questions

Hello everyone,

I'm working with a group that uses an ATEM Television Studio HD switcher. We're looking into getting 2 of the studio cameras. I noticed that the cameras had talkback functionality and that the switcher, itself, has ports for plugging in a headset. That's great and all, but we need more headset connections at the workstation near the switcher.

Is there a way to treat the talkback functionality similar to a comms headset partyline? In other words, is there a way to add more headsets near the switcher?

Thanks,
Joe

The talkback functions (for Studio) are solid for simple communication on a simple event. Once you start adding more table positions, you start to get into a true comms system.

We have hacked the switcher audio inputs with custom cables but it's really wonky and never worked well.
