The mPress is a radically new press audio distribution system that offers near unlimited signal expansion without degradation or noise. According to Radial's Senior Engineer Dan Fraser: "The traditional press box has always been presented as a suitcase with a mic input and a host of mic outputs.
In the past, transformers performed the task of splitting the signal and providing isolation against hum and buzz caused by ground loops. In recent years, the use of active signal buffers has replaced the transformer as a means to cut manufacturing costs. Unfortunately, this has resulted in noise creeping back into the audio system, deteriorating the audio quality. The mPress solves the problem by combining a high-octane active drive circuit with a host of transformer-isolated floor boxes called Exo-Pods. This modular approach allows the system technician to distribute Exo-Pods throughout the press gallery while assuring each member of the press receives a clean, hum-free signal. To ensure no digital trickery is at hand, the mPress is 100% analogue.'
