Rio Rancho, NM (October 12, 2017)—Lectrosonics has unveiled two wideband transmitters in its SM Series—the SMWB (single AA battery) and SMDWB (dual AA battery)—which offer a number of new features, including the ability to act as a transmitter or as a body-worn recorder.
The SMWB and SMDWB units tune across three standard frequency blocks and come in several frequency ranges: A1 (470 – 537 MHz) and B1 (537 – 614 MHz) for the North American and export markets, and B2 (563 – 640 MHz) and C1 (614 – 691 MHz) for certain export markets. RF power for these models is selectable at 100, 50, or 25 mW (North American version) and 50 or 25 mW (certain export markets).
The SMWB and SMDWB feature a standard TA5 connector with servo-bias mic input, so lavaliere microphones wired for other SM Series units and all current TA5 beltpack units will also work on the new models.
The SMWB and SMDWB units can be configured either as a transmitter or a recorder, with files stored on Micro SD card memory, allowing use as body worn recorders. Audio files are recorded in the industry standard Broadcast Wave (.WAV) format at 24 bits, 44.1 kHz sample rate. The Micro SD memory card can also be used to update firmware in the field.
The SMWB has an MSRP of $2,060 and the SMDWB has an MSRP of $2,150. Both models are available now.
