LAS VEGAS, NV, APRIL 20, 2009 – RF Central, part of The Vitec Group’s RF Extreme business unit, and a leading provider of digital and analog microwave systems for the broadcast industry, common carrier, cable, government, military and international marketplace, is showcasing its RFX-NLL-II 5.8 GHz portable digital microwave link at NAB 2009 (Booth C3707). Taking its former model to new heights, the NLL-II offers both balanced microphone and line level inputs via switch selectable XLR connectors on both the transmitter and receiver. It is also equipped with phantom power for microphones, making it ideal for roaming news and sports crews.
“RF Central is always developing new products that streamline applications among broadcasters without infringing on the delivery of cutting-edge technology,” says
RF Extreme President Stephen Shpock. “Through our NLL-II 5.8 GHz digital microwave link, we have taken our signature product to the next level by offering the benefit of a plug and play approach that eliminates the need for an external audio mixer and preamp. By providing the means for microphones to be plugged directly into the link, mobile crews curtail costs, no longer needing to employ third-party products. Additionally, its user-friendly design saves time in the field, resulting in lower overall operating costs.”
The NLL-II offers newer features, its complete transmit and receive system continues to distribute high quality wireless digital video and audio at an outstanding 1,500 foot range; all in an ultra-compact form factor.
