  4. Zaxcom and Lectrosonics both get an Oscar, I call BS! Not to be rude to Zaxcom or Lectrosonics but when a company like Zaxcom and Lectrosonics both get Oscars for “Technical Achievement” you look at what they have achieved. Zaxcom created full digital wireless with on transmitter recording systems, Lectrosonics developed ½ of ½ of that and called it a hybrid digital wireless system. Please, Zaxcom has clearly advanced motion picture technology in a profound way and deserves a Scientific & Engineering Award from the Academy. This choice by the Academy cheapens the award because of the obvious inequity of the achievements. This is like giving an award to Ford for its parallel parking assist system when the Tesla is searching the next parking lot finding a space without a driver at all. The integrity of the Academy has taken a step down. David Thomas, Lawrence E. Fisher and David Bundy for the design, development and engineering of the Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless Microphone System. The Lectrosonics system has advanced the state of wireless microphone technology by developing a method to digitally transmit full-range audio over a conventional analog FM radio link, reducing transmitter size, and increasing power efficiency. Glenn Sanders and Howard Stark for the design and engineering of the Zaxcom Digital Wireless Microphone System.The Zaxcom system has advanced the state of wireless microphone technology by creating a fully digital modulation system with a rich feature set, which includes local recording capability within the belt pack and a wireless control scheme providing real-time transmitter control and time-code distribution.

  6. The current conversion or update price to change an SRa to an SRb is $250 in the US. That price will be good until 31 July 2013. It will increase 50% to $375 after 31 July 2013. At the end of the year, we will drop the conversion "deal". Current cost for a block change is $752.38 and the SRb conversion uses exactly the same parts and requires the same alignment. So, at the end of the year the conversion may get pricey. Note that at $375, it is still half price. If you can't get a unit in before 31 July, simply make an appointment before then for a conversion before 30 Sept 2013. This gives you 50+ days to decide to rob the piggy bank and 111 days to find a break in your schedule. If you have a firm appointment, the crew is good about turning the units around for a specific return date. In the past few months, we have have done a thousand conversions in bulk. That is slowing down and in a few months it will start becoming similar to a regular repair. Hence the pricing change. Best Regards, Larry Fisher Lectrosonics

  10. Hi, I am having problems with a SMQV M Block 26. I have own for 4 years this equipment and always have worked well. I use a DPA 4071 microphone. When I use this wireless kit there is a constant static I have changed microphones and its the same. I have never had any problem with mi Lectrosonics before. I own other kits but this is my only block 26 kit so I can't check if the problem is in the transmitter or the receiver. I think is the transmitter because I hear the static even when I don't plug the microphone in the SMQV, and when I plug it the static becomes louder. Have you had a problem like this?? Should I send my kit to service?? Thanks

  12. Has anyone else had the error message "DSP Failed" when turning on an LT transmitter? I am getting the error message fairly frequently when booting the transmitter up however it usually goes away when it gets power cycled again. Firmware is up to date.
  13. hey folks. just spent a couple hours making an ANDROID app to play the sleep and unsleep sounds for lectrosonics transmitters because i just needed that ability and didnt want to pay $20 for the LectroRM android app. my app isnt available on the google play store because i havent figured that out, and it doesnt have a nice icon because i havent figured that out either. anyone that wants it is welcome to download it (if it will link here) or hit me up for a signed APK. i just used the sounds freely available on lectrosonics site. keep up the good work out there. thanks. (newer one is next post)
  14. Hi guys, I'm on a feature and have run across a strange problem. I'm using lectro smqv tx and dual srb receivers into a 633. -All receivers are set to +5 -All 633 channels receiving lavs are set to line -All receivers are using ta3 to ta3 connectors -All receivers are using the same cos-11 lavs -All tx have audio levels set to 23 (for testing purposes) The problem is that 2 tx, set at audio levels of 23 with normal dialog sound normal, and show up on the 633 meters around 0. Fine. The other 2 tx, also set to audio levels of 23, with normal dialog are super hot. They're clipping. I had to turn them down to 8. I've tried the following troubleshooting: -ensuring all cables are wired for line level -switching mics (they are all the same) -rebooting 633 It seems like a tx issue. They are all the same smqv, same lav mics but 2 are fine at 23, and the other 2 are hot as hell. Can't figure out what I'm missing. Any help would be mucho appreciated.
  15. This is really strange. Several years ago I had bought some universally wired COS-11D's from a dealer and then noticed that they seem to be wired out of phase with some other universally wired COS-11D's that I have from a different dealer. I noticed the phase effects when holding them close to each other and listening to them mixed. (Could this happen when the white and black wires are reversed? I can not see how they are wired because of the heat shrink tubing.) Mostly I did not use the different phased mics together on jobs so the phase issue has not been a problem. And all the mics have worked fine on older UM200a transmitters and also some SMQV's that I have. But I have just this week purchased some new LT's and an SMV. The phase-reversed COS-11D's hardly work on them -- I have to turn the transmitter gain up all the way to hear a little audio, and of course, there's too much hiss and something is clearly wrong. But my older non-phased reversed COS-11D's sound fine on these new LT's and SMV. Has something changed about the wiring to the input connector on the newest Lectrosonics transmitters? Something that is different even from SMQV's that are about 3 years old?
  16. It is with great sadness that we tell of the passing yesterday of John Arasim, former President and Chairman of the Board for Lectrosonics. He was in the company of his family. His two passions were his family and his work. It was under John’s guidance that Lectrosonics became a standard of motion picture, television, news and reality programming. His impact on ENG, television and motion picture production encompassed 3 decades. During his tenure, the lexicon for production was expanded to include terms such as "camera mount receiver, "plug-on transmitter", "bag system", “camera hop” and "quad box". Always innovative, his first diversity receivers featured hand-made 6 pole helical resonators machined from pipe couplings. John’s previous work included many years at Sparton Industries where he ran the New Mexico operations. He kept a sample of his work, the mechanical UHF tuner for the F-105 Starfighter, in his desk and would happily show it off to those who inquired. Other accomplishments include developing the first directional sono-buoy and designing high reliability failsafes. His tireless efforts to build a company where everything that could possibly be made internally was a testament to his commitment to American jobs and the concept of "Made in the USA". His philosophy of manufacturing and engineering demanded the best and rewarded the result with good pay, good benefits and great place to work. He was always on the lookout for engineering talent, seeking the best available. “We are an engineering driven company” was his mantra. He had three rules of business. "We build the best product we know how to build. We don't do business with the government. We have fun." We will miss him and will continue to honor him through the continuation of his principles. God Speed, John. We do not yet have word of plans for his memorial but will post more information as it becomes available per the requests of the family. Gordon
  17. Good morning! Our latest transmitter, shipping soon! (As soon as the certification process is complete) 3-block tuning, IR port for quick sync, USB port for firmware updates in the field. http://www.lectrosonics.com/US/introducing-the-hma-digital-hybrid-wireless-plug-on-transmitter.html
  18. In case you didn't plow through all the previous posts in the HMa announcement thread that started in January, HMA is shipping now and due to popular demand, responds to the RM tone controls. No Sleep or Unsleep (the hardware is not on the board for that) but you can exert the other commands (freq, level, LF rolloff etc). Because the levels cover a wider range, New Endian has been notified of the change so they can add the additional level commands. Not sure when or if there is a new version available. But you can always use the incremental adjustment until then.
  19. Hey all, I've had some strange behaviour lately with my Wideband Mid Venue. Yesterday I lost half the screen when powered up and lost audio at the same time. This has happened before. 6 months ago I lost the screen on both sides upon powering up. Simple reboot fixed the issue but makes me nervous. I have contacted Lectrosonics and I am sending in for service. Just seeing if anyone else has had the issue, and maybe how it was solved. The unit is just over a year old. It's powered by Meon Life. Thanks in advance. B
  20. DPA Microphones, K-Tek, Lectrosonics and Sound Devices are teaming up to host the next Sound Summit. The event will be located at Full Sail University on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 9. Registration is free! We hope to see you there. http://thesoundsummit.org/orlando/
  21. Possible upcoming shoot in Hawaii - any known wireless issues / conflicts would be helpful - thanks! I'm using 19, 21 & 26
  22. I started a new thread on this since the earlier one was straying off on tangents. We took a long look at the HMa and it looks like we can add dweedle tone controls for frequency, mic levels and maybe roll off. We cannot mute or enable a Sleep mode, the circuits are not there to support those functions. Adding those circuits at this time would mean huge delays and additional, very costly approvals testing since we are already 99% finished with those tests at the lab (and have paid heavily to do so). So, we have "pulled the trigger" on writing the code. It remains to be seen if the new code will be immediately available when we begin shipping but the HMa has a nice little USB port, so you can update anytime we come up with the new firmware. Fair warning - we may yet encounter some other technical problem but we are committing to the change as of this morning. Thanks for all the input - great ideas!
  23. Has anyone bought SMDB's and what's the main difference between them and smqv's and smv's. I know from the lectrosonics website smdb's are sold in the UK and Europe? I was wondering if there would be any problems operating them in the US and is any one has or is currently using them in the US? Thanks
  24. Hey guys, Avid reader and new to the production sound scene. I've doing location sound for about a year now with good success doing corporate, 2 features and a bunch of shorts. Upgraded to my first nice indoor mic (neumann km150). So here's the deal: got my first gig that's got me pretty nervous. I've been asked to do sound for an interview with Martin Scorcese. My first thought was that I have to upgrade to a sound devices and some lectros or zaxcom lavs along with my indoor boom. I've been getting by with a tascam 680 and sennheiser g3's with a cos-11 mic. I know it's prosumer and I"m saving up for the next round of upgrades (I can rent too) but just not there yet. I'm confident that I can deliver clean, balanced tracks using my gear to it's full potential. What I'm kinda scared of is showing up on set with my gear and getting looks from Scorcese and the production crew like, 'who invited this guy?' Am I right to be nervous about my gear or is this a case of 'it's not the arrows but the archer'. Your thoughts and opinions would be much appreciated.
  25. Hi there, This is my first post so thanks in advance for being gracious with me. I'm beginning to build my audio kit and, because i'd like to buy a COS-11D lavalier mic, i reached out to Sanken with a question. But, after their reply, it seems clear to me it simply wasn't understood. Here's what i asked: And here was the response from Sanken: Am i missing something obvious? Was this their way of saying, "No, what you want to do is simply not possible." Or were they instead just saying, "We'd really prefer you buy two microphones. That always works out better for us." Any advice and nudges in the right direction would be deeply appreciated. Many thanks.
