Updates and adaptations

Published:

Firmware v4.0 has been released by Lectrosonics to supply its IFB-R1a beltpack receivers with the ability to operate in two different user interface modes. Following the update, Scan Mode delivers the original IFB-R1a interface experience whereby users scan for carrier frequencies, storing up to five at one time. Direct Entry Mode, meanwhile, provides the option to program channels directly using the pushbutton and hex switches, and increases the channel-storage count up to 10 at a time.

The manufacturer notes that the firmware update not only caters for those using larger IFB systems, but that it also simplifies and speeds up the setup time. Users can switch between the two UI modes using the hex switches on the side of their receiver.

The latest version of the firmware is included with all new UHF IFB-R1a receivers. Older units may be installed with the v4.0 update via Lectrosonics’ parts and repairs department.

On the hardware side of things, the American manufacturer has produced a bottom plate adapter for its SR Series receivers. The SRAES3 is compatible with all SR Series dual-channel slot receivers, including the SRa, SRb, SRc, and SR, as well as their 5P variants. It provides audio in AES3 digital audio at 48kHz sampling with an internal clock and 44.1, 48 or 96kHz sampling with an external clock, and balanced analogue audio from -50dBu to +5dBu in 1dB increments. The CH1 jack on the device can deliver one or two channels of digital audio, while CH2 feeds analogue audio.

The SRAES3’s multi-pin interface and mounting holes have the same design as on all receiver output adapters in the SR Series and an external word clock may be fed to the device via a BNC connector. A field changeable jumper applies a 75-ohms word clock connection termination.
