Digital Audio Repeaters 

All of our audio announcers are "automated" in that once they are set up they will not require any further intervention unless the internal message needs to be changed.  In the event of a power interruption/failure our announcers will auto-start and immediately resume playing your message.

NOTE: These are commercially designed audio announcers specifically engineered for 24 hour/365 day operation. They have numerous features that off-the-shelf "MP3" players do not.  Most home-style MP3 players run on batteries only and they will not "AUTO-START". They will not automatically begin to replay your message once the power is restored and they will require human intervention to be placed into the play mode again. Do not take the chance of harming your corporate image by using inferior equipment not specifically designed for these tasks.

MCDAR-90   (4) Channel 90 Second Commercial Grade Audio Repeater

The MCDAR-90 is an advanced 4-channel record/playback Speech Processor Module that enables speech recording and playback up to 90 seconds.  A different message can be recorded on each of the 4 "channels", and each channel can be automatically and separately played back, by triggering the corresponding input. A unique design feature allows the number of messages at one site to be increased virtually without limit, by cascading any number of MCDAR-90 units.

Recording can be done using the on-the-board internal microphone or an external audio source. The playback output is 1Watt across an 8-Ohm loudspeaker. For maximum efficiency, each outgoing message can be composed of a short "individual" message or sound effect and a longer "common" message (location, address or alert signal). The common message can be joined to the beginning or the end of each individual message, as desired. Upon triggering one of the 4 channel inputs, the relevant individual message and the common message are played back in succession, in the order chosen and in accordance with the selected playback mode.

MCDAR-90™ Features:

The total available combined recording time is shared between the 4 seperate channels,  Totals 90 seconds.
Playback from each channel can be triggered by motion sensors or any type of momentary switch/button.
The channel inputs can function with normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) switches.
A microphone, RECORD pushbutton, volume control and LED status indicator are included on the PC board.
Audio source selector permits you to choose between recording speech directly from the internal microphone or using a pre-recorded message from an external audio source such as a CD player.
Suitable for mounting within the host system cabinet or inside any loudspeaker housing.
Non-Volatile EEPROM memory. 100 year memory retention without power.
Interval/cycle between message repetitions – 2 seconds.
Output (1) Watt across 8 Ohms (attenuated to 1 V p-p max. if the VOL control is set to Minimum)
External audio input of 100 mV p-p max. / 4 k.
Operating power: 12 VDC.
Current consumption of 10 mA (standby), 30 mA (record), 300 mA peak (playback into loudspeaker)

CF Player/Commercial Grade MP3 Player
Uses a CompactFlash Card

The CF Player™ is an MP3/WAV player designed specifically for broadcasting a continuous audio announcement.  With its true CD sound quality and smaller MP3 file size, the CF Player™ can also be used to broadcast a large amount of crystal clear audio via a PA system (storecasting), through a Telephone's Message-On-Hold System and through Autmated Advertising's low power AM/FM radio stations.

Digital sound files created in a recording studio or on a computer can be easily and quickly copied directly onto a standard CompactFlash Card without the need for any conversion or re-digitization. Therefore, the sound quality is preserved 100% as compared to the original. At the end user's site, the CompactFlash Card is simply inserted into the CF Player and the unit is ready to continuously play your messages. Absolutely no downloading is needed.

The CF Player is directly compatible with the industrial standard MP3 and WAV formats, which means that virtually any PC can be used to create and edit the sound files. A CompactFlash Card reader is used to copy one or more sound files to the card, and a particular file can be selected by pressing a button on the unit. This feature permits you to store multiple messages on the card and utilize them as required.

The 1250i’s integrated two-way (push or pull) ConnectBack™ feature combined with DigiLAN’s powerful scheduling abilities provide unlimited flexibility and convenience.

The IP-NET100 stores and continuously plays a digitized audio production for Message-On-Hold applications and Low Power Radio Stations. The unit  receives (pulls) audio and configuration updates over the Internet or intranet from a Content Management System. Connection to a local area network is made by a standard Ethernet interface on the unit.


The IP-NET-100 stores audio in standard mp3 formats. Mp3 bit rates of 32, 48, and 64 kbps are available. Depending on the bit rate used, the total memory of the unit can vary from approximately 7-14 minutes of storage.

The device's IP address is entered into a computer's web browser on the Local Area Network (LAN). A graphical user interface is presented to the user for device configuration and audio adjustment.

Volume/Tone Control
An 8 ohm and a 600 ohm output are available from the amplifier. Volume and tone control changes are made by using a standard web browser operated from a computer on the LAN. Up/Down volume buttons are located on the unit as well. All of these adjustments are made in real time on the machine.

The IP-NET-100 periodically communicates to a Content Management System (CMS). Generally, this is done at defined intervals of time (typically every 1-12 hours). First the IP-NET-100 unit identifies itself to the CMS by a serial number. After identification, the CMS will determine if there is a new audio file to download. It then pulls this file from the CMS and stores in flash memory.

Product Updates
The unit also has the ability to receive firmware updates during these checks to the Content Management System. Premier will notify dealers of firmware updates as they become available. The dealers will then have the option as to whether or not they want to update the equipment.

E-mail Notification
The Content Management System can be set up to automatically notify your customer when their audio production has been changed. Other automatic notifications are also available to you the dealer and your customer.

Detailed Network Communication Information
All communication between the device and the Content Management System is via http protocol and is over port 80. This is the standard Internet communication protocol. As a result, firewall security is not a concern with IT professionals. Communication with the CMS does not jeopardize network security.

Content Management System (CMS)
Access to this website is secured by user name and password. Serial numbers of units are entered by Premier into the web site as units are shipped. The dealer creates groups and assigns individual units to each group. Audio mp3 files can be uploaded by the dealer to the web site library. Each group is assigned one or more mp3 audio files. Dealers can schedule uploading of audio files to units in the field at different times and dates in the future.
