Survey: Wireless receivers integration in the Cantar family.

Recommended Posts

Was idly browsing Aaton Digital’s website when I came across this survey they recently posted. No explanation, though curious how this comes soon after the Audio Ltd. acquisition by Sound Devices.

We saw mixers and recorders integrated together, I bet the next step is integrating wireless into them until they too become the standard everywhere.

Maybe I am not reading this right, but I am fairly certain that they don’t want to actually integrate the receiver into the Cantar only the interface, much like the SuperSlot thing Sound Devices offer.

Integrated wideband receivers with emulators for all of the typical wireless systems would be great! Maybe a royalty deal with the wireless companies for providing emulator support.

You read it exactly right. That's why the ad copy says "...wireless receivers interface..."

I replied to the survey, and suggested Lectro for consideration, since many of us all over the world are using Lectro.

And yes, the dual receivers are the ones that make sense for this concept.

Somewhere in the dusty part of my memory I seem to recall that15-20 years ago Sennheiser offered an integrated mixer, recorder, wireless unit that was about $10-$12,000. Does anyone have a better memory of the unit?

You are right Eric.  I saw that unit, thought what a really great idea, just way out of reach at the time.  Rather like clothing fashions old is new again.

I remember sucking in a deep breathe when I saw the price and our stuff wasn't bargain basement. I don't remember a recorder though.

Best,

It was mixer with four rxs and a transmitter for a hop.   No recorder -   This was awhile ago- 20 years .....?.   Wisycom made some sort of portable “quad box” rig as well.    My guess is that these were just prototypes or one offs for a specific application.
