Zaxcom introduces recording transmitter
Zaxcom, a provider of audio equipment for the television and film industries, has introduced a new plug-on recording transmitter for microphones.
The TRX700 is designed for quick integration with the shotgun-type microphones typically used in boom-pole applications. It records up to 12 hours of time code-referenced audio on a removable miniSD card, a feature that provides an automatic backup of the system’s RF transmission.
The transmitter provides much of the functionality of its existing TRX900 series of digital wireless microphone transceivers, but with the ease-of-use of a plug-on system designed specifically to address the needs of boom-pole operators.
From two AA batteries, it provides a run time of four hours and 48V of phantom power to support the operation of boom-pole microphones. The TRX700 uses 100 percent digital modulation with audio quality that rivals a hard-wired connection.
