Zaxcom to spotlight Zax-Net 2.4GHz RF network
Zaxcom will highlight its Zax-Net, a 2.4GHz RF network for the distribution of remote control signals, time code, IFB audio and metadata for production sound, at IBC2009.
Zax-Net wirelessly links Zaxcom's Deva/Fusion digital recording wireless, encrypted IFB receivers and compatible digital slates into a single system for audio recording and metadata distribution. The Zax-Net signal is generated by Deva/Fusion and broadcast via an IFB100 on a 2.4GHz signal. The IFB audio, time code, metadata and wireless remote control commands are then received by the ERX1, ERX2 and TRX series digital wireless units.
The company also will showcase its new ERX1 and ERX2 encrypted IFB bodypacks for reception of high-quality digital audio, time code and metadata from a Zaxcom IFB transmitter. They have an LCD display for showing time code and current scene and take metadata in real time with a hold button for script supervisors. See Zaxcom at IBC2009 in Stand 8.D79.
