Zaxcom will unveil 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 in Amsterdam, Sept. 10-15.
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.
Zax-Net will be available for all current Zaxcom hardware via a free software update.
