Rio Rancho, NM (March 23, 2016)—Intended for field production and applications amidst rough conditions, Lectrosonics has released its new SRc and SRc5P Digital Hybrid Wireless dual-channel diversity "slot" receivers with Smart Tuning and SuperSlot compatibility.
The Lectrosonics SRc and SRc5P units each consist of two receivers which are built into a single, compact housing, with optional adaptors for video camera receiver slots and for standalone use. The two internal receivers can be operated separately, each using switching, antenna combining diversity or in tandem with ratio diversity reception.
The audio inputs of the receivers can be mixed internally or left separated for discrete recording tracks or external mixing. The 5P variant allows dual channel operation for cameras with only one audio channel in the slot.
The new receivers include a tuning range of three standard Lectrosonics blocks or 76 MHz. Tuning steps of 100 kHz or 25 kHz allow for up to 3,072 frequencies per band. Tracking front-end filters provide out-of-band rejection of RF noise, and DSP compatibility modes allow the receivers to be used with a variety of Lectrosonics systems, including IFB transmitters, as well as a variety of other wireless systems. An IR (infrared) port is included to simplify setup with IR enabled transmitters.
The SmartTune feature automatically selects frequencies based on local scan data. Audio frequency response: 40 Hz - 20 kHz +- 1dB. Four frequency ranges are available for worldwide use: A1 (470-537 MHz or blocks 470, 19, and 20), B1 (537-614 MHz or blocks 21, 22 and 23), B2 (563-640 MHz or blocks 22, 23 and 24) and C1 (614-691 MHz or blocks 24, 25 and 26). Output adaptors and mounting options are also available for the SRc and SRc5P for camera slot or external mounting operation.
