The innkeeper 1x gets audio in and out of telephone lines. Its excellent caller audio output does not exhibit the transmit / receive crosstalk common to analog hybrids, making it perfect for radio or television talk shows, teleconferencing, or auto-answer IFB feeds. The main function of any hybrid is to bring in the caller’s voice from the phone line, as clear and clean as possible. In the real world, when you send your voice down the telephone line it has a tendency to bleed over into the caller’s audio. The hybrid must adapt to the phone line in order to properly separate transmit and receive audio. We use a 16-bit DSP to monitor the phone line and audio signals continuously in order to deliver excellent separation. Our dual-convergence echo canceller algorithm can achieve excellent transhybrid loss, typically exceeding 50 dB, without any setup and without sending a burst of noise into the phone line.
