  1. Looking Into Buying Zaxcom IFB

    Maybe I am wrong here but the "Lectro Quadra" system being talked about here operated in 902MHz to 928MHz not 2.4 GHz. The Zaxcom IFB system does operate in 2.4 GHz. It is a tunable narrow band system and is of course much more than IFB with time code distribution and Zaxnet remote control. While 2.4 GHz has many users our system is great for a short range IFB monitor. Glenn
  2. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    I am sure that after 5 years of continuous use on professional football players our mechanical stability more than excceeds the requirements of a staged publicity stunt with a potato and a card board box. Glenn
  3. QRX200 internal PSU introduces noise

    Almost everything these days has 1 or more switching power supplies inside. If the frequency of a power supply (1 to 2 MHz) is too close to other devices that also have switching power supplies they can mix together and the sums and differences can fall into the audio pass band and can become a problem. I am sure this can be solved with a DC power filter or some other minor bag configuration change. I am available at the office to help over the phone. Glenn
  4. Speedy Recovery

    I am sure you got "sound medical advice" get well soon. Glenn
  5. Since Zaxcom wireless can fit 10 channels per MHz we do not foresee any problems for our customers due to this and our 100MHz transmitter tuning. Glenn
  6. Deva 24 seminar

    I have edited my original post to clearly and correctly identify our invention "The hard disk multi-track production recorder" I believe this is the text on both our Emmy and Academy award for the invention of the Deva. The Deva 24 input trims will be active on all inputs including Dante. The total track count is 24 in all modes. Dante will allow for 16 ins and 16 outs. Glenn
  7. Deva 24 seminar

    The Deva24 is a finished product in terms of hardware and there is no more "work" to do. The software will be ready for the beta testers in a couple of weeks. All units on display last week (Atlanta, LA, New York and Amsterdam) were recording files. In fact the one shown in LA had 30+ segments recorded. Showing the Deva24 in Amsterdam and in US cities was never a question. With the release of the product so close the sound community needs to see the unit in order to make informed decisions on which way they might like to go. In my opinion showing the product results in people having the best tools going forward as no one is going to wait for something that is not the best choice for them. To be fair Glen you misquoted Jack. Jack said "Its pretty real" not "it's real". One is absolute and one is not. Jack is writing the manual for us and his opinion was fair and appropriate as he has been working with the hardware and software. We and many other manufactures show products before they are ready in order to properly inform the sound community. We did not invent this style of promotion. It is in fact something that all of the other major lines you carry have done in the past or are currently doing. Current examples include Lectrosonics and Audio Limited. Because Zaxcom invented the multi-track production recorder and we have an established track record, I think the sound community has accepted the fact that the Deva24 is very "Real" in terms of a next generation Deva that is near release. The Deva24 as you have pointed out should be spectacular. It will not be long before it should able to justify that speculation. Glenn
  8. Deva 24 seminar

    I am sure the knobs will be fine. The space between them is very open. If not they are easily changed. Glenn
  9. Deva 24 seminar

    Yes I will do one with Gotham Sound In about 1 to 2 weeks.
  10. Deva 24 seminar

    The Deva24 is priced at Just under $12,000 us dollars. In reviewing all specifications and features I do not think price should be high on the list when it comes to making the decision to purchase a recorder like this . The Deva will tick all of the technical, ergonomic, ecomomic and operational boxes related to a purchase decision. I am sure someone will add the Deva24 to the many comparison lists I have seen relating to other products. Glenn
  11. Deva 24 seminar

    The seminar was excellent. The Deva 24 was used live with a AES42 microphone as part of the presentation. I am sure that the Atlanta sound group would get more feedback on this topic. A am now off to LA to show the Deva there. Hope to see many soundies there.😊
  12. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    "Yup, I had an TRX3.5LT and it was funky and wouldn't transmit... I sent it in three time under warranty and was told the TRXLT3.5 were having issues and were to be discontinued." There are no I repeat no "issues" with the TRX3.5LT. It is simply that everyone now wants the ZMT3.5 so you go with the flow. Glenn
  13. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Since I recorded the Gotham video I decided to not include the power roll feature as it did not save as much power as I expected it would at that time. Power roll is very effective with our TRXLA3.5 so it will continue to be a supported feature of that product. We do need to make sure the documentation is correct based on the final product specification. Run time of the ZMT has been limited to about 5 hours. This of course has a lot to do with the capacity of the battery. Glenn
  14. Zaxcom QRX100 - battery Power

    The QRX100 needs 12V at about 300ma. 9V can not do that for you. Use any 12V nominal battery that can supply enough current. Glenn
  15. new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    Yes they do.
