Las Vegas, NV (April 11, 2016)—At NAB 2016, Sound Devices will debut its new RF Scan feature for the 688 mixer/recorder and SL-6 powering and wireless system, available as part of the 688’s upcoming firmware version 3.00 update.
When using the RF Scan, the scanned block (low to high) is displayed on the 688’s larger color LCD, giving users a bigger, clearer picture of what frequencies within the block are free of RF noise. Users can zoom in on the graph for a better visual, and the 688’s interface speeds frequency selection.
This new feature works with SuperSlot-compatible receivers, such as Wisycom MCR42 and Lectrosonics SRb and new SRc. With three slot-in receivers in the SL-6, the RF Scan’s triple-scan capability utilizes parallel processing to cut the time it takes to run the scan.
The optional SL-6 powering and wireless system attaches to the top of the 688 and accepts up to three dual-channel, slot-in receivers. When using the 688 with the SL-6, production sound mixers now have the benefit of cable-free powering, audio interconnection, and antenna distribution.
The firmware v3.00 upgrade for the 688 will be available later this month.
