Rio Rancho, NM – March 2009… Lectrosonics, recognized as the world’s premier manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products, is pleased to announce the company recently received technical certifications for its products in Europe and Japan, and has completed the conversion to lead-free solder and production to meet RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) requirements for Europe. Products to be distributed for these export markets are all based on Lectrosonics’ highly acclaimed Digital Hybrid Wireless® technology and initially include the SM “Super-Mini” Series of belt-pack transmitters, the new HM plug-on transmitter, the UT handheld transmitter, the SRA slot-mount, dual-channel receiver, and the Venue modular receiver system.

We have already forged several excellent partnerships in Europe and Japan, and I feel that we are off to a great start.”
