Quadra digital wireless monitor and Mute Switch from Lectrosonics
Lectrosonics has introduced the Quadra digital wireless monitor (IEM) system.
The Quadra system operates in the license-free ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical) band between 902-928MHz and has a throughput latency of 1ms for the analogue inputs, and <0.5ms for the digital inputs. Consisting of the M4R belt-pack diversity receiver and the M4T half-rack transmitter, the new Quadra system features digital RF modulation, two or four channels of 24-bit/48kHz digital audio, analogue or digital inputs, and a unique mixing interface for users.
The M4R diversity belt-pack receiver features a user-friendly interface with a high-resolution, backlit LCD and membrane switches. A four-channel mixer enables the performer to tailor the mix in real time, based on what is sent to the transmitter from the monitor console. Several channel setups and knob configurations are available.
The M4T half-rack transmitter features transmission power of 200mW for extended operating range. Locking XLR connectors facilitates up to four channels of either analogue or digital (AES/EBU) audio sources to be applied to the transmitter. A large, high-resolution, backlit LCD and large membrane switches provide an intuitive interface that is operable even in the most challenging environments. The included hardware supports rack-mounting of two M4T units together in a 1RU configuration. A USB jack provides for future firmware updates in the field. The M4T operates on AC mains power, avoiding the use of a wall-wart.
Designed for use with the company’s belt-pack transmitters, Lectrosonics’ Mute switch is a belt-mount unit that provides instant, pop-free audio muting. It uses an optically coupled switch to silence the audio signal without any clicks and pops, even when located in a strong RF field.
It is an active device that is powered by any five-pin Lectrosonics transmitter, including the new Servo Input transmitters such as the SM Series, LMa, and UM400a. It works with most two- and three-wire lavaliere microphones wired according to Lectrosonics guidelines. Including a weather resistant package, the Mute switch is suitable for outdoor sporting events. The toggle switch can be controlled under garments, while the reversible, stainless steel belt clip enables it to be adjusted to the user’s preference.
An included wiring kit provides a 5-pin connector, strain relief parts, and an additional water resistant vinyl boot to protect the lavaliere microphone connector from moisture.
