What's Needed to Set Up ISDN in my Studio

ISDN has been the standard real-time communication link for various industries, including voice over, for decades. Providing broadcast quality and extremely low latency, ISDN has many advantages over other forms of voice transmission. However, if you plan on setting up ISDN in your home studio, there are a few things you should take into consideration.

Pros and Cons of ISDN in Home Studios

There are many advantages to having an ISDN connection in your home studio. For example, as the go-to remote audio connection for decades, it has proven to be the most reliable voice transmitter. Some of the other advantages of ISDN are:

  • Extremely Low Latency

  • Broadcast Quality Audio

  • Highly Stable Connection

Though ISDN has a number of advantages, that isn’t to say this technology is perfect. For example, while ISDN provides broadcast quality sound in real time, it can be complicated to set up initially, and unless you have the technical skills, you likely need an audio engineer to do the installation.

Additionally, the cost to maintain this service can be costly, in the neighborhood of $200 per month. Unless you are an established voice over artist, it makes more sense to utilize a studio, like CMDNYC, that has access to this technology.

Equipment Needed for ISDN Connection

In short, aside from cost and the difficulty with installation, if you live in a major metropolitan area that has access to ISDN (such as New York or Los Angeles), all you need is the hardware unit and an ISDN service provider. However, ISDN is only compatible with copper phone connections, and many phone service providers are moving to fiber. This makes the accessibility of ISDN more difficult every year.

Additionally, there are many more cost-friendly ISDN alternatives, including Source Connect, that are helping bridge the gap while ISDN becomes less accessible. In fact, many industry experts expect these alternatives to completely overtake ISDN within the next few years.

Why use ISDN for Voice Over

As far as audio transmissions go, ISDN has been the go-to for decades, and for good reason. ISDN allows for real time connection with broadcast quality, and has been used by radio stations for on air interviews since its inception.

At CMDNYC, we ‘re set up for actors to call into our Manhattan studio using ISDN to record their voice over or radio spot. While ISDN is industry standard, we also use Source Connect as well to ensure every production can be completed.

Advantages of ISDN

As mentioned, with broadcast quality and real time connection, ISDN has been the go-to remote audio connection for decades. But the advantages of using ISDN are far greater than this. For example, ISDN has extremely low latency, which is why it has been popular among radio stations. Additionally, because of its superior reliability, you don’t have to deal with major dropouts or call issues.

That said, there are some drawbacks to ISDN. With a high-quality service like this, you can expect the cost to be higher than some of the remote audio connection alternatives, like Source Connect. Also, in order to setup ISDN you need the proper hardware unit, which can be beyond the technical knowledge for the layman to install, as well as a phone service provider that uses copper connections.

In short, ISDN’s advantages outweigh the drawbacks, however, its becoming harder to utilize as phone service providers have already started phasing out copper.

ISDN Alternatives

With ISDN’s high-cost and declining accessibility, many voice over actors have turned to alternatives for remote audio connection. Source Connect is one of the most popular, but some of the other alternatives are:

  • ipDTL

  • Source Connect Now

  • Session Link Pro

If you are a voice actor looking for a cheaper and easier to use alternative to ISDN, these are some options worth looking into. At CMDNYC, however, we primarily use ISDN and Source Connect in our Manhattan studio.
