  1. We have received questions from sound mixers regarding whether or not infringement of our "Recording Transmitter" patents can be avoided by not recording while set to standardized LAV bias voltages or not wearing a recording transmitter and/or not using the transmitter with a lavalier microphone. After conferring with our intellectual property counsel, the answer is no. Our counsel informs us that none of our patent claims specifically require a “lavalier microphone" or "unbalanced input” and/or that the transmitter be “worn.” Although some of the patent claims require the transmitter to have an “audio input device” or to be “wearable,” other patent claims have no such requirements. The invention of the recording transmitter and the process of replacing dropouts with time code referenced files recorded in the transmitter is clearly a desirable and unique feature. Zaxcom innovates at great cost and has advanced the state of the art. We take great pride in these inventions and what they can do for our customers every day. The patent system protects our intellectual property and allows us to profit and recover our technological investment in creating the inventions on which we have spent substantial time in order to bring them to our customer base. We thank all customers who respect our right to earn an income from our inventions and protect our intellectual property from any company that seeks to exploit our technology without permission or compensation. Should anyone have further questions, please feel free to contact us for clarification.

    John Blankenship is officially a year older today

    Hope it was a good one. Glenn
  3. I had a discussion with one of our EU dealers and it does not look like we are effected but I do want a clarification on this to be certain. Not sure about anyone else. Glenn

    The best Paul McCartney interview ever

    That was awsum. Glenn
  5. Here is an interesting use of our new hand held. The hand held was hard wired to the PA speakers. No external equipment was needed to feed wireless transmitters as the transmitter is inside the handheld itself. The handheld also provided a backup recording of the event. This allowed a seamless recording of all vocals and instruments with a Deva5.8 and a RX12 in a sound bag as well as a virtual multitrack recording contained in every transmitter synced with Zaxnet time code. The Subway players appeared more realistic without the extra gear that would be needed without the Zaxcom transmitting and cabled handheld. TRX743s were used as plant mics mounted to the ceiling. See if you can spot someone you know in the crowd.
  6. This video was recorded live with all Zaxcom recording wireless. The internal transmitter recording feature was not utilized. It is not often that our wireless is used for these musical type of applications. when they are it shows what the system can really do. I think the Never clip and digital modulation provided a great linear high dynamic range track. Receiver audio is from the RX12 AES outputs. The Nintendo instruments are a very cool part of this and were directly wired to the transmitters. Glenn

    techniques for quieting internally cabled boompoles

    You might look at the ZMT-Phantom by Zaxcom. It is a recording digital transmitter that positions behind the mic at the top of the boom pole. Pull the cable out of the pole and you have a lighter pole with no cable noise. The transmitter supplies 12V-48V phantom power and is the size of a Zippo lighter. Glenn

    ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Zaxcom wireless utilizes 100% digital modulation. The output power of the transmission constantly changes from a minimum level of 0 mW to a peak level of 75mW. This is identical to the FCC tested and approved average power level of 35 mW. Because the data in the Zaxcom transmission is contained at the peak of the signal, it is this value that is most equivalent to FM analog wireless for range comparison purposes. Glenn

    Deva 24

    Nothing has changed with our Zaxnet transmitter for Deva24. The Deva24 will work with IFB200 just like the older Devas. When we are ready the internal transmitter module will be submitted for CE and FCC testing. As it is the same as the IFB200 it will get approval and then we can distribute it. Glenn

    Deva 24

    There is no need for a external time code reference as the internal temperature compensated crystal oscillator is very accurate. Glenn

    Deva 24

    The time code rating is very very conservative.

    Deva 24

    For now the connection to the IFB100/200 will be the Zaxnet transmission source just like the older Devas. No other info is available at this time. Glenn

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Any whip antenna is wire cut to a specific length. The difference of a pixel either way can be the difference of only 1 dB and can happen just based on relative antenna position at any given moment.
  14. Congratulations Mark to you and you team. Glenn

    They are very similar in range. ZHD96 is better with reflections and takes half the bandwidth. Glenn
