ADENA Hack: How to choose between AREC Media Stations?

There are currently 8 Media Station models in the LS/KL series. All of these devices share core features, such as recording, streaming, automatic backup, calendar scheduling, video layout, overlay, background controls and more. But there are certain differences that can help you choose the right model for your needs. We’ve previously covered some of these unique differences in the ADENA Hack №54, and so this time we are diving deeper into the topic.

To begin with, we can divide the Media Stations into three categories - 2, 3, and 4 video

channel models. By channels here we mean the maximum simultaneous number of video sources that a Media Station can work with. 2 channel models are LS-US2(N), LS-110, LS-2, and LS-200, 3 channel models are LS-300 and KL-3T, whereas 4 channel models are LS-400 and LS-860(N). Within these categories, these models are different from each other in terms of their AV inputs and outputs, as well as certain unique features.

For example, we’ve highlighted the unique feature of LS-110 in ADENA Hack №33. LS-US2’s unique feature is its ability to work with USB video inputs and also an optional NDI-HX licence. LS-2 and LS-200 are both rack-mounted stations, with the LS-2 being a more budget model. As for the 3 channel models, KL-3T is defined by its inbuilt touchscreen, which makes it perfect for placements on lecterns, podiums, and mobile usage. Lastly, in the 4 channel category, LS-860 is defined by its multiple HDMI and 3.5mm line/mic inputs, optional NDI-HX licence, and inclusion of a specially integrated accessory called ARECast.
