Telemak is a double preamps that allows to connect any kind of analog audio source to a DSLR camera. Furthermore, Telemak allows any kind of analog audio source to be amplified for beeing recorded on any consumer audio device provided with mike input (Zoom H2, M-Audio Microtrack, Sony PCM-D50, etc.)
Telemak comes with:
- Two balanced inputs mike preamps with 48 V Phanto, a low frequency cut filter (-3 dB@100 Hz, -12dB/oct.) and a +10 dB booster. The two output signals can be summed on both output.
- An analog stereo mike level output on a single minijack.
- A headphone amplifier with its own routing, which can be used as a low level line output (-12 dBu).
- A dedicated circuitry that recognizes a TC (TTL level only) plugged in the proper connector (Lemo), and switches it to the right output while bypassing the audio signal.
- An optional rig for fitting Telemak between the camera and its stand.
Telemak can run on one or two 9 V batteries or an external 9 V – 18 V DC power supply. When no Phantom power is needed and no headphone plugged, battery life extends to several days. With two Schoeps CMC 6 and a HD 25 headphone connected, Telemak can run for over four hours on only one 9 V battery.
Aside its audio quality and small size, one of Telemak major features is its very low power need thanks to its power saving mode:
- With no Phantom power invoked, the 48 V DC/DC converter goes into sleep.
- When no jack is plugged to the Monitor output, the headphone amplifier goes into standby mode.
- When running on internal battery, the Power On led flashes while keeps lit when running on external power.
Telemak enclosure is made out of anodized aluminum, and its dimensions are 93 x 90 x 42 mm. Telemak weighs 250 g with one battery and no rig mounted and is below 420 g with the rig and two alkaline batteries.
Telemak is exclusively on rental and for sale at DC Audiovisuel.
