The new Stingray Comtek Pouch from K-Tek is a silicone based protection sleeve which safeguards the COMTEK PR-216 series receiver while giving easy access to all controls and battery compartment.
K-Tek has a series of protective pouches for different accessories, and the line up is expanded now with the introduction of another solution, the K-Tek new Stingray Comtek Pouch, custom designed to provide optimum protection for COMTEK PR-216 series receivers while transporting and working on set or location. With a compact form factor, this black essential cover provides easy access to jacks, switches, controls and the battery compartment, while it safeguards the receiver.
The Comtek Pouch fortifies the receivers with 0.2-inch (5mm) rugged molded hypoallergenic silicone to cushion the electronics and the housing. The belt clip makes it easy to attach the ComTek unit to pockets and belts. The included 47-inch (1.2m) lanyard can be clipped to the pouch and worn around the neck or over the shoulder, and can be used to hang the unit off a director’s chair, on a sound cart, or any convenient hook.
K-Tek’s designers targeted two parts of the receiver that need special fortification: the battery compartment and the top user interface. An ample rectangular opening fully exposes the entire operating panel, allowing fingertip control of the on/off switch and the volume knob. The headphone jack still accommodates straight and 90-degree connectors. The test LED remains fully visible while the Stingray Pouch’s tall silicone lip helps protect the top panel, even when dropped.
To safeguard the battery compartment hinge, the Pouch features a protective 0.2-inch (5mm) latex-free silicone cover that shields the battery compartment yet easily bends away to allow battery pack changes. The Stingray Comtek Pouch has a list price of $42.00 and is available online or from K-Tek dealers.
K-Tek has a vast range of solutions to protect gear, but the company does not stop there, and recently we presented here at ProVideo Coalition the Stingray Audio SunHat, a new special heat and sun protection, designed to be used by professional sound recordists on location.
