Intercoms (computer)

Postby somnonaut » Mon Jul 18, 2016 2:43 pm

Has anyone ever used the acquiring computer as the room intercom? Meaning, you speak to patient over microphone attached to computer and pt room microphone also comes through computer speakers, with no external intercom boxes used? Basically, using the sound card in the computer as a room to room intercom?

I have been unable to locate help on doing this. I wonder if I could split the outputs (front vs Back) for differential use.

Alice does this using an Axis video/audio server. It accesses the server through the software, but i was just looking at the manual and looks like you can just use the server page.

But this implies using the AXIS equipment. My point was not have to rely on any outside equipment, just the computer sound system.

Not sure what you were reading, but Alice does use the computer's own hardware/sound board, etc. There is actually a cable from the speaker output that runs into the room, using regular old speakers, and the tech room speakers plugged into the computer. Also uses a mic plugged into the computer.
