mPress Broadcast Press Box

Part # R800 8010 00

About the mPress

  • Press box & splitter with expandable outputs
  • Dual mic preamps with on-board limiter
  • Program inputs for background music playback
  • Built-in test tone for easy calibration & troubleshooting

The mPress is a modular & expandable press box that distributes audio to multiple destinations simultaneously, with two on-board microphone preamps and additional controls that eliminate the need for a separate mixer when feeding both a PA and a press gallery.

mPress Applications

Using the mPress as a basic eight out press box

In this setup, you are using the eight balanced outputs on the mPress to feed the press gallery without using the Exo-Pods. Set the outputs to low and connect using standard mic cables.

Using the mPress in a star configuration

Connect as many as eight Exo-Pods to the mPress to create eight separate zones – each with 14 outputs for a total of 112 press feeds. All of the outputs are isolated to eliminate noise!

Extending the outputs in a series configuration

Daisy-chain one Exo-Pod into the next to expand the system while reducing cable mess. Setting the mPress outputs to high enables almost unlimited press feeds!

Using the mPress with the outputs of a console

You can connect the outputs of a console to the balanced line level inputs on the mPress, integrating it with your existing PA system. Simply depress the recessed switch on the rear XLR inputs to allow you to connect line level signals and distribute them to the press gallery outputs.
