Pompton Plains, NJ (April 12, 2010)–Zaxcom has launched a line of encrypted bodypack receivers for interruptible feedback (IFB).
Slated for display at the 2010 NAB Show this week, Zaxcom’s ERX1 and ERX1TCD bodypacks receive digital audio, timecode and metadata from any IFB transmitter in the Zaxcom TRX product series, providing a platform for television and film production crews to manage the full range of IFB signals required for their productions.
Both the ERX1 and EXR1TCD feature an LCD display for showing timecode and current scene-and-take metadata in real time, and offer a hold button that enables script supervisors to record timecode-based events. The ERX1TCD model builds on this feature set by including an integrated timecode reader/generator and an output to continuously jam digital slates. According to the company, this feature prevents timecode drift between Zaxcom’s Deva or Fusion audio recorders/mixers and the slate, ensuring that the timecode stays accurate even in the case of an extended RF dropout.
The ERX1TCD additionally has the capability to delay received audio signals by up to 300 milliseconds or 10 video frames, allowing producers to match viewing of the scene on different monitors to the audio, and compensate for varying video delays introduced by each monitor’s video signal processing.
For a demonstration of the ERX1 and ERX1TCD, visit Zaxcom at the 2010 NAB Show, booth C154.
