Zaxcom New QRX100 Receiver to Provide Four-Channel Audio Support
With an industry-standard mounting kit, the QRX100 will integrate quickly and easily with any broadcast camera. The QRX100 will receive two separate transmitter signals on two separate frequencies simultaneously – providing unprecedented flexibility and ease-of-use in a broadcast ENG receiver. The unit will receive one to four channels of 100 percent digital audio and will output the channels in both analog and AES digital formats, ensuring audio quality that can only be matched with a hard-wired system. Digital modulation of the audio signals will remove concerns of the interference that would typically add distortion to an analog-based ENG system.
The QRX100 will operate in frequency blocks between 512 and 860 MHz with a digital sampling rate of 32 to 196 KHz. Weighing just six ounces, the QRX100 will feature a compact profile of 3.230″ X 1.25″ X 5.0″. The system will require a voltage range of 6 to 18 VDC and a power consumption of 200 mA at 12V. Multi-camera serial remote control will be supported with RS422 and RS485 ports.
With the addition of the QTX50 2.4-GB IFB return option, the QRX100 will be equipped to send a mono return channel to Zaxcom’s TRX900, TRX900AA, and TRX992 wireless microphone systems. The QTX50 option will additionally allow each receiver to control RF frequency and audio level. Adding the QSYNC50 option to the QRX100 will ensure subframe locking of multiple video cameras with an integrated video- and timecode-referenced sync generator. The QSYNC50 will even control the record/stop function of each camera remotely.
