Hybrids (Location)

Portable units which allow a remote program contributor to send audio over a phone line or internet connection back to the studio for broadcast.  Some units such as the RemoteMix modules offer an in-built mixer for handling multiple microphones and headphones as well as line level audio inputs.  There are two common types.  The POTS hybrid works on a regular telephone line whereas a handset line tap replaces the telephone handset to connect to the circuit.  This may be useful where access to the phone wiring is not permitted.
