Zaxcom today announced a new addition to its line of wireless digital audio transceivers, the TRX900LT. The new TRX900LT combines wireless transmission, recording, and remote control receiving functions into a single lower-cost system for the production of episodic television, motion pictures, and live broadcast events. Designed to be extremely lightweight and durable, the TRX900LT is housed in a high-strength, impact-resistant nylon polymer casing that provides protection from both corrosion and water damage.
Like all technologies in Zaxcom’s popular TRX product line, the TRX900LT features 100-percent digital transmission for audio quality that rivals a hard-wired system, and it is superior to all analog and hybrid wireless units. All audio transmissions from the TRX900LT are fully encrypted to eliminate the possibility of production audio interception and theft.
With a patented internal timecode-referenced audio recorder that backs up all wireless transmissions on a removable microSD card, the TRX900LT eliminates the possibility of audio loss due to interference or signal dropout. Each TRX900LT unit will operate for up to five hours on a single AA lithium battery and is compatible with all Zaxcom wireless receivers and IFB transmitters.
Also included in the TRX900LT system is ZaxNet, Zaxcom’s new 2.4-GHz RF network that enables distribution of remote control signals, timecode, IFB audio, and metadata. With ZaxNet, TRX900LT users will be able to control gain and audio replays remotely via a timecode reference so that multiple Zaxcom wireless systems can replay audio in sync. The TRX900LT-ZaxNet integration also will allow production sound mixers to remix audio from multiple transmitters, creating a virtual multitrack playback and re-record system.
“With the new nylon polymer housing, the TRX900LT packs a serious punch for its size, weight, and cost. It provides the rich feature set that audio professionals in television and motion picture production need, with the high quality level and innovation for which Zaxcom is known,” said Glenn Sanders, Zaxcom president. “The TRX900LT will be the star of our booth at the 2010 NAB Show, and we’re anticipating a lot of interest among audio mixers worldwide.”
The TRX900LT with integrated recording will be available early summer 2010 for a list price of $1495 USD. Microphones are sold separately by Zaxcom authorized distributors.
A full range of professional audio technologies from Zaxcom, including the TRX900LT, will be on display at the 2010 NAB Show, Booth C154. More information about Zaxcom’s full line of audio systems is available at www.zaxcom.com.
