Zaxcom today announced that it will introduce a new plug-on recording transmitter at NAB2007, booth N9017. The new TRX700 is designed for quick and easy integration with the shotgun-type microphones typically used in boom-pole applications. The TRX700 records up to 12 hours of timecode-referenced audio on a removable miniSD card, a patent-pending feature that provides an automatic back-up of the system's RF transmission.
“The TRX700 provides much of the functionality of our popular TRX900 series of digital wireless microphone transceivers, but with the ease-of-use of a plug-on system designed specifically to address the needs of boom-pole operators,” said Glenn Sanders, president of Zaxcom. “We're very excited to introduce this product as a means for quickly integrating audio recording and transmitting capabilities into microphone systems that are already owned and used.”
From just two AA batteries, Zaxcom's TRX700 provides a run time of four hours and 48 volts of phantom power to support the operation of boom-pole microphones. The TRX700 uses 100 percent digital modulation with audio quality that rivals a hard-wired connection. Zaxcom has engineered the only professional wireless systems to use digital modulation, which frees audio professionals from the distortion effects of companders, FM modulation, pilot tones, antenna diversity switching, and RF interference that degrade the quality of all other broadcast wireless systems.
