    business development at Lectrosonics, Inc., amateur classical musician, and generally a nerd.
  1. Congratulations to Kevin O'Connell, Andy Wright, Robert Mackenzie, Peter Grace, and the Hacksaw Ridge team for winning the Academy Award for Best Sound Mixing!
  2. The Lectrosonics HH and HHa handheld transmitters have a programmable button, FWIW. It can be set up as Mute or Talkback. I could see either being used for a VOG mic.
  3. If anyone here is missing an HM-26 transmitter and may have left it at the Newseum in Washington, DC, please contact Anne-Marie Kaczorowski there, verify the serial number, and retrieve your transmitter. 202-292-6543
  4. We do make the case ourselves.
  5. At the very least, put things at opposite ends of the band. For instance, if you have IFB on 23 and you're using B1 talent mics, put the IFB at the top of 23 and the talent towards the bottom of B1. And, physically separate everything as much as you can. A handy tool for that is the coax antennas we make, both with BNC and SMA connectors. These can help get your IFB or hop transmitter antennas out of the bag and away from your talent receivers.
  6. Keep in mind that we went to the extreme low end of the gain to illustrate this point. I was actually surprised how little it appeared to affect the sound - the noise floor was not as high as I expected. But it did affect the range to have such a low level of modulation.
  7. There is probably low-level, wideband RF coming from the mixer, which then interacts with the IFB transmitter by generating intermods. This is one reason why we (and others) generally recommend having your IFB and your talent transmitters on two different frequency blocks.
  8. Check out the latest firmware! http://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/category/93-firmware.html
  9. Should be 8-9 hours or so. Hopefully some users can chime in to confirm or deny this estimate.
  10. It will be very interesting to see what happens with the 4th round auctions! We're getting close: they are supposed to close on Jan 13th (this Friday). If anyone is interested in following the auctions, here's a link: https://auctiondata.fcc.gov/public/projects/1000 And if you want a quick tutorial about how the auctions work: http://wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/1001/resources/reverse_auction_new_stage_tutorial/presentation.html
  11. Hear Hear!
  12. For those interested, here's a video Bruce Jones and I made about using the SmartTune and IR Sync features of the SRc receiver. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-5DApspPC8
  13. Hi folks, the latest update for the PDR (v1.10) now defaults to 24 bit recording, and offers greater reliability with a wider variety of Micro SD media. Please update your units with the latest firmware, using the files and info here: http://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/category/93-firmware.html
  14. Thank you, David & Jan. Yes - pretty exciting week around here with this news! I think it is great that the Academy is giving out awards this year for audio technology - it is a rare thing, even though dialog is so central to every movie. Great job to our engineering team, and great job to Glenn & Howie, too. Well done all around!
  15. Just a reminder that Saturday, 12/31 is the deadline for ordering this combo if you want to take advantage of the rebate.
