Calabasas, CA (August 27, 2010)—Line 6 has released a new line of XD-V series digital wireless microphone systems, which includes two handheld mic systems and two beltpack systems that include lavalier microphones.
XD-V30 and XD-V70, the two handheld microphone systems, use Line 6 digital modeling technology, so XD-V70 is aimed for various vocal applications with seven selectable sounds and timbres based on popular live-sound mics. The XD-V30 has a single microphone model based on a live-sound mic.
The handheld mics also feature cardioid polar patterns, removable microphone capsules for polar pattern and frequency response customization, and convenient internally mounted antennas. The two beltpack systems, XD-V30L and XD-V70L, feature internal antennas, quarter-inch inputs, and condenser lavalier microphones.
XD-V digital wireless systems use DCL (Digital Channel Lock) and PDP™ (Proprietary Data Placement) technologies, which Line 6 states defend wireless transmissions against audible audio interference. The digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4GHz band, which allows for license-free use worldwide.
XD-V digital wireless systems are free of companders. Each system’s audio specs (including 10Hz – 20kHz frequency response, up to >120 dB dynamic range, and 24-bit conversion) are closer to those of a cabled microphone than those of a traditional analog wireless system.
