Zaxcom‘s TRX990 Wireless Mic Now Shipping

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J. -- Jan. 10, 2008 -- Zaxcom, a pioneering provider of professional audio equipment for the television and film industries, today announced that its TRX990 wireless microphone transceiver is now shipping and available to audio professionals in the broadcasting, film, and special event industries. The TRX990 is engineered primarily for use in boom pole, sports parabola, and ENG camera-to-bag applications and combines the functions of a wireless transmitter, 48-V phantom power supply, IFB receiver, and walkie talkie in one compact unit.

“We‘re pleased to begin shipping our TRX990 system to audio professionals who are looking for both simplified production and superb audio quality,” said Glenn Sanders, president of Zaxcom. “By integrating an IFB receiver directly into the body of a wireless transmitter, the TRX990 allows sound staff to support multiple functions with just a single unit instead of the belt full of gear that‘s normally required. And of course it features Zaxcom‘s trademark sound quality and digital modulation, with audio that rivals that of a hard-wired connection.”

Zaxcom's TRX990 is engineered as a complete solution to boom-pole-type transmitters and offers two audio channels with integrated 48-V phantom power. Zaxcom‘s TRX family -- which also includes the lavaliere-style TRX900 -- features the industry's first wireless microphones with an internal IFB receiver and integrated audio recording with timecode. This patent-pending feature set allows audio professionals to record up to 12 hours of audio directly to a Flash memory card and then transfer the .wav files to either a PC or Macintosh for post-production. The TRX990 provides a 114-dB dynamic range, mono or stereo wireless transmission, and RF remote control.
