BCN wired intercom/Main station
The best partner for FD-400A to build Intercom & Tally system for simple multi-camera system
The FD-900S is the base station for FD-400A as a part of the BNC connection intercom system.
It has some of very useful functions especially for building multi-camera & multi operators shooting.
There are five groups with a FD-900S at max. 8 units of FD-400A can be connected per each group.

Up to 5 FD-400A units can be connected to one system.
FD-900S can be configured to connect 5 groups per unit and 8 units FD-400A for each group. For example, when using in a multi-camera operation system, FD-400A can be placed on each of up to five cameras, and the FD-400A can also be placed on the staff accompanying each camera.
In addition to being able to have conversations with all the slave units FD-400A and the master unit FD-900S for each system, it is also possible to have conversations across all systems. It is extremely powerful in events and recording operations operated by a large number of staff.
Equipped with power supply function for FD-400A
When the FD-400A is connected to the FD-900S, the drive power for the FD-400A is supplied from the FD-900S, so there is no need to put batteries in each FD-400A.
This makes it possible to use it without worrying about the battery consumption of the handset when it is used as a permanent facility in various studios, halls, and event venues.
Equipped with a microphone jack and built-in speaker on the front panel
In addition to the headset terminal, the front panel of the FD-900S is equipped with a general XLR 3-pin connector for business microphones and a built-in speaker.When the FD-900S is deployed in a command room, the head You can use it conveniently without wearing a set.
Program audio can be distributed
The FD-900S is equipped with a function that inputs the main program audio (line audio) for event venues, etc., and mixes and distributes it to each income line.
In recording work such as concerts and events, it is often the case that a binaural closed headset (DL-550 etc.) is used in order to listen to the income sound even in noisy venues. However, each staff can work while listening to the program sound at an appropriate volume.
Deliver tally signal from switcher to FD-400A
By connecting the D-Sub15 pin connector or BNC connector on the back of the FD-900S to the tally output of the switcher, the tally signal output from the switcher can be transmitted to the FD-400A via the FD-900S. As a result, the tally LED of the FD-400A is lit, and a tally signal is output from the mini jack of the FD-400A, and the LED of the external tally indicator TU-10A can be lit.
This makes it possible to use the tally function, which is essential for studio cameras and camera transmission adapters, even in low-budget systems such as small camcorders. Especially in multi-camera recording, it is possible to improve the quality of the recorded video by accurately telling the cameraman and the subject which camera is currently used.
