  1. 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
  2. Deva 24

    There is no need for a external time code reference as the internal temperature compensated crystal oscillator is very accurate. Glenn
  3. Deva 24

    The time code rating is very very conservative.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Congratulations Mark to you and you team. Glenn
  7. ZHD96

    They are very similar in range. ZHD96 is better with reflections and takes half the bandwidth. Glenn
  8. Zaxcom STA042 accept spdif 75 ohm Signal?

    Since this is none standard I can see my staff not knowing. If you simply go through a balancing transformer it will work. Glenn
  9. The TRX900 with stereo adaptor is one of our best products and totally unique. Stereo audio quality has never been a customer complaint in the 15 years the product has been out. In fact the Audio quality far exceeds any Analog wireless link available today. Glenn
  10. Sound Devices Mix Pre 6 With Zax wireless

    It is the same on the IFB200 and the TRXCL. You can adjust the trim pots on the back for max level. If you are not feeding the IFB200 balanced you should connect pins 3 and 5 to 1 on the ta5 input .
  11. Zaxcom Bluetooth

    Blue tooth is not able to have accurate time code and has a very limited range. Both are show stoppers for us. Zaxnet overcomes all of that. Glenn
  12. Zaxcom ZMT3 Battery Life

    Real Fuji NP50s are like the needle in the haystack. Tough to find . Our ZMT transmitters will do 5 hours on the real ones. In our tests we have found that real batteries have Panasonic cells and work very well. Off brand and fake Fuji cells last about 3.5 to 4 hours in our transmitters. Glenn
  13. Deva 24

    We have been shipping Deva24 for the last 2 Months in our "Soft Release program". There will be official news soon. Feedback from our early adaptors has been excellent. Glenn
  14. Zaxcom TRXCL3

    Re-blocking older camera links is not cost effective as there are large filters that can not be unsoldered without a lot of time time and effort that would not be cost effective for the customer. The new wide band camera link has a much lower noise transmitter output that is the same as the one we use in our current series of wide band wireless transmitter that eliminates the need for the large filters. Glenn
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Speedy Recovery

    I am sure you got "sound medical advice" get well soon. Glenn
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Deva 24 seminar

    Yes I will do one with Gotham Sound In about 1 to 2 weeks.
  24. 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
  25. 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.😊
