Las Vegas, NV (May 1, 2006)–Given the positive response to the Venue Receiver system introduced at last year’s NAB, Lectrosonics designed the VR Field receiver to provide audio/video professionals with a portable receiver for remote recording applications. The specifications and performance of the VR Field are identical to those in the standard rack-mounted version.
Lectrosonics VR Field receiverTo meet field criteria, the VR Field system is powered from a single NP1-type battery and features a compact design to integrate with mobile bag systems for ENG, video and film production. A front panel cover was added to prevent spray and dust from collecting on controls or display.
Salient features of the Venue Receiver System includes a modular design hosting up to six receivers and employs the company’s Digital Hybrid Wireless architecture for compander-free audio in native 400-series mode. Additional modes are selectable, allowing compatibility with older Lectrosonics systems and also transmitters from two other manufacturers.
The system operates with standard VRS receiver modules or VRT modules with tracking front-end filters for congested RF environments. Offering three selectable diversity modes–phased, ratio and frequency diversity–and RF scanning for easy selection of clear frequencies, the receiver can be programmed and monitored via USB with supplied PC software interface.
