The Game Show GS8 is a Quiz indicator system that caters for up to 8 contestants.

The system is modular, so you can purchase the number of contestant stations you require and scale the configuration up or down as your needs dictate.

At the heart of the system is a single rack unit Master Station, which has 8 Contestant Inputs, 8 indicator LEDs, 1 adjustable Audio Output, and a Reset Button.

Contestant Stations come in several styles and are sold separately, so customers are able to purchase to suit their own requirements. The entire system is plug-and-play, so any Contestant Station may be connected to any input, and any number may be used, up to a maximum of 8 units.

The system is initialised by pressing the large green Ready/Reset button on the front of the Master Station. When that button is illuminated, all other lamps and LEDs are extinguished and the unit is ready to receive button presses from the Contestant Stations.


When the first Contestant Button is pressed, its corresponding LED will light up on the Master Station front panel, the adjustable Audio Tone will be triggered and appear at the Audio Output, and also at the local Speaker if desired. At the same time, on that first Contestant Station, the Audience Lamp and Confidence LED will illuminate.

After this point the Ready/Reset button no longer glows, and all other button press inputs are rejected by the Master Station. The system will remain in this state with the first-in contestant lamp illuminated until the next time Ready/Reset is pressed. In normal use the Ready/Reset button is pressed once before each question.

All connections are via standard Microphone Cable, and runs may comfortably exceed several hundred metres (over 600 feet) to input or output devices.

If you would like the unit to automatically trigger external lighting and audio effects, a Tally Output option is available. Other custom configurations can also be arranged by special order.

First... Choose a Master Station



Standard model features 8 Contestant Inputs, 8 indicator LEDs, 1 adjustable Audio Tone Output, and a Reset Button.

Just add the number of Contestant Stations you require, and you're done.




This option adds 8x individual and 2x global outputs to trigger external device FX such as Audio Playback and Lighting Ballyhoo. Grub screw terminated line plugs are included.

This is the most typical Tally arrangement (transistor open collector output) and is used extensively in vision mixers. In their 'off' state, each output presents a high impedance. In their 'on' state, outputs are switched to ground. For example, if contestant 3 is first to press, then Tally Output 3 and both 'Any' pins will switch to ground, leaving all other pins high.

Outputs are designed to sink maximum <100mA at up to 50 volts DC for switching purposes, and should not be used to drive loads directly. See data sheet.

**Due to rear panel space limitations, international dual supply switching is not available with this option.

Then... Choose your Contestant Stations


The Mushroom Button Contestant Stations each feature a machinery grade 60mm Contestant Button, bright 70mm Audience Indicator Lamp, and 10mm Contestant Confidence LED, all housed in a tough die-cast aluminium enclosure with neoprene rubber base.

Default Cable Entry is via the front panel, to follow the normal cable dress of microphones etc from front of table. Customers may instead order XLR placement at rear or sides, or even tails, at no additional charge. Just ask, and specify the number of Buttons required, from 1 to 8.


- RED       $182 each
- WHITE   $182 each

These 100mm illuminated Dome Buttons are designed for gaming and are happy to take a pounding. Button and Lamp are one and the same, so there is no need for an extra confidence LED, or audience lamp.

Symmetrical construction means the XLR can face any direction, and there is also room for signage on the side facing the audience - perhaps a contestant number, or team name.

Comes in Red or White, so choose as few or as many as you like, or maybe get a mix and have different coloured teams.
