  1. Arri Amira AES inputs with zaxcom QRX

    Hey thanks guys. Good to hear. Cheers. Arri is the stuff.
  2. The Arri Amira has 2 AES inputs both stereo. If I wire up the TA5 output on the QRX to a single XLR and switch to AES input on the amira, can I have 2 separate talent tx's going direct to the QRX and have it feed to the single input B (aes mode) on the Amira on ISO tracks? Or is this only possible if it's a stereo hop from a bag. My other option is to use the 2 analog ins, or 2 separate AES ins, or wire up a TA5 to 5 pin XLR. Be cool if I can go direct from 2 talent to the RX, and have both feed into the single AES input.
  3. ZMT wet weather sleeve.

    Nice, can't wait to see it, Will probably end up doing something similar.
  4. Active Noise Cancellation

    Leave it for post. making a decision in the field on headphones with something like noise reduction doesn't make much sense. I can't think of any post guy that would appreciate it. Like Marc said, theres always a price to pay, unless your making pre and post noise reduction recordings, it's doing more harm than not.
  5. Boom operators - Cool photos

    The most effort ever put into a drive by.
  6. So who showed what at NAB

    Hoping the stick mic style has enough range. I'm guessing it will get 150 feet. But when used with sharkies I bet it will perform very similar to the antenna version. Or at least I hope. No antenna and no cabled xlr is so attractive. The 742 is to heavy for end of pole use. Anyone saying otherwise is probably sitting mixing vs swinging . I'm mostly bag work but always run wireless boom for a backup recording. I can't wait to do without the internal cable and weight.
  7. Rechargeable battery recommendations for Zaxcom TRXLA3

    The amazon nimh ones. I think they r 16$ for 8. Are great. Same performance as the eneloop pros. Price is perfect. Last a couple years if taken care of. But all of them including eneloop lose their mojo after a year in my experience
  8. new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    Well then the plugon version is the clear choice for me. I guess increased range being the main reason, but failing to see any other reason why anyone would buy the lemo version? Oh. And why not an optiOnal antenna for the plug in tx? Cool as is. Optional antenna a good option.
  9. new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    I love the idea of the xlr version. But the lemo version is interesting in that it can be used with lav and boom. Be cool if they sold a boom clamp for the top of the boom to mount the lemo version. Anyone know of a simple way to mount the lemo version up too.
  10. zaxcom 742 as stereo transmitter for zaxcom 200

    I run the 742 at 25mw on my boom while carrying the bag all the time, almost always, doesn't seem to effect the range much of the talent TX running on the same block range.
  11. Recommend a walkie talkie?

    Something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Business-CLS1110-1-Channel-Two-Way/dp/B0000AUFKI/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0000AUFKI&pd_rd_r=DXMV3ZSBWP1QGK487BAS&pd_rd_w=GZPez&pd_rd_wg=Cur1u&psc=1&refRID=DXMV3ZSBWP1QGK487BAS
  12. Recommend a walkie talkie?

    The name is a turn off hahaha, but really appreciate the option, that might be a good option for cost and performance. I was initially settled on a middle to high end motorola system, in the motorola world any recommendations?
  13. Recommend a walkie talkie?

    Looking to grab about 8 walkie talkies, any recommendations?
  14. DUGAN for the 633!! Firmware update 4.50!!

    Sure many will try, and many of those who try will end up butchering the production, they will learn very quickly that dugan automix is nothing more than a feature that 'professionals' 'may' use to enhance the final feed to camera on reality. There is a million and one other things it doesn't do, the main one being it doesn't give the operator an experienced ear. I completely disagree, I think each time technology is released many people worry this will render operators useless, but it won't and never will, sure some productions will do it, but they were probably already doing it. I remember when HDRx mode on the red camera was released, there was a similar thread over on the red forum how this feature negates many of the skills a DP has.... laughable at best. The hacks that would be willing to hire sound PA's to mix any show will remain hacks and many of us would have never worked for such hacks in the first place.
  15. zaxcom 742 as stereo transmitter for zaxcom 200

    When I say the 742 would be receiving TC from the Nomad and forwarding to the rx200, i'm not saying it would forward via zaxnet, I meant it would forward as you explained earlier embedded in the UHF feed, correct? Receives TC from zaxnet, embeds in the UHF. Well at least if it can do this than it would work.
