Pompton Plains, NJ (March 4, 2009)–Zaxcom has introduced the TRX992, a boom pole unit that performs the functions of an audio transmitter, monitor return receiver, backup recorder, and phantom power supply, all within one wireless system.
The TRX992 features patent-pending internal recording that backs up transmissions to guard against lost audio files. Users can record up to 24 hours of audio to a removable mini or micro SD card using the TRX992. The system features a user-selectable power output ranging from 10 mW to 100 mW. The audio dynamic range is 106 dB, reportedly making the TRX992 sound like a hard-wired microphone.
The TRX992 can be used for critical monitoring applications, with a 2.4 GHz digital monitor return receiver that relays return audio, timecode reference, and RF remote control commands. Alternatively, TRX992 users can elect to transmit high-resolution IFB audio instead of time code and remote control signals. It is a true diversity receiver, and the system’s internal monitor mixer allows users to mix transmitted audio and a monitor return together, controlled by a pan pot on the top of the unit. The TRX992 also features mic/line level input and a balanced XLR input with 48 V phantom power.
A single low-cost, widely available rechargeable battery system, tthe VPX rechargeable battery system is said to hold roughly twice the energy of today’s lithium packs and support more than 500 recharges.
