Zaxcom today introduced the TRX900LTS (LTS), a new recording wireless transmitter that supports two microphone inputs and independent transmission of two isolated audio channels, all on a single RF carrier signal. This revolutionary new product will allow for the first time ever audio professionals in the television broadcasting, live event, sporting, and theater markets to transmit a stereo image wirelessly from talent via a single body pack. Available in October 2010, the LTS’ unique dual-microphone input greatly enhances the production of 5.1 surround sound.
“Our new LTS two-channel recording wireless transmitter is ideal for any type of wireless audio production where a stereo image, with its clear right/left perception of audio, will enhance the sound track,” said Glenn Sanders, Zaxcom’s president. “As a lightweight bodypack with no heat generation and a six-hour run time on just one AA lithium battery, the LTS is likely to be very popular with both production staff and talent alike. Users even have the option of switching the LTS to single-channel transmission, ensuring flexible production options no matter what audio needs our customers face.”
Incorporating the key functionality of Zaxcom’s patented wireless-recording technologies, the LTS records timecode-stamped, two-channel, back-up audio directly within the body pack to eliminate the risk of audio loss due to interference or signal drop out. With 100-percent digital audio wireless transmission and no intermodulation, the LTS provides superior audio quality that rivals that of a hardwired connection. Each unit also features an internal SMPTE timecode reader/generator. The LTS provides up to 96 hours of recording time, and is supported by the ZaxNet remote control network for easy adjustments on-the-fly.
The LTS is available for purchase at a list price of $1,995. More about Zaxcom’s full line of audio systems is available at www.zaxcom.com.
