  1. My bag is: recorder boom and 8 wireless, stereo hop Ifb Battery - - around 5 pounds. I can wear that all day everywhere all the time. Ok. Here is the truth: I have handled 12 wireless a few times in my carrier and it worked just fine. We are mixing for Ifb and production uses our ISOS. Not the hardest thing in the world. I have asked for second mixers and when I got them it was fine but most of the time producers are willing to risk it which puts me in a difficult situation to push myself and get it done. And honestly all thanks to zaxcom. I can not imagine being able to do it with the other gear. To many unknown and to many runing around changing freqs with a stupid anoying sound while interrupting the shoot. Thanks to zaxnet. Not to mention intermod Bullshit that I have been clear of since 2012. Actually I thin I need a t-shirt saying: RF Intermod Bullshit free since 2012 🙂 P.S. I have mixed 24 channels more then a few times. Its fine. Especially when you come from mixing music.
  2. not at all insulting to users. Users have no choice but buy this crap. I personally make my own bags so I don’t really care for myself. I care for all the users that are forced to carry those insane bags. Let’s hope we get universal health care by the time we get old. Back pain is no joke. It is a real suffering.
  3. Thanks Larry, great analogy. btw It’s not harder to operate multiple receivers over the spectrum with pure digital RF. But you guys know that now. (;
  4. I tested PSC SMA on the field with a the Las Vegas Swat team and every time somebody keyed a Digital walkie next to me there was a giant drop out. Walkies were 470mHz and my lavs were 550-560mhz. Removing the PSC SMA fixed the problem. The same goes for MicPlexer. When I removed the 35mHz filter and just used it as a wide band combiner digital walkies were causing drop outs. I believe it is more to do with a wideband distribution more than amplification.
  5. I can not find it. Just measure the switch and see what is the on position.
  6. 100% true. Rigid bags are for people who can not organize their gear and bag. Rigid bags are also an excuse to charge $350 for a bag. The companies can make light and smart bags but they don’t because it will be hard to charge $350 for some cordura fabric and closed cell foam.
  7. I don use pouches. There is nothing that can break since the screen is surrounded by the antenna and the headphone jack. The rest of it is rock solid!
  8. My favorite contribution to Nova is becoming a reality. This is a game changer for reality bag mixers! it uses Bias voltage to enable the output to activate Push to talk on the walkie. Gene Martin is making me hd26 with a mic that will be connected to Nova and I can use the microphone and com to enable the walkie. I have been routing the walkie to my mixer/recorder for a very long time and now I don’t even need to use the walkie microphone and bring it to my mount. Everything is integrated and eliminates the need for those PTT walkie microphones.
  9. Hi David, Are you going to attend this year? Also I can not find the pictures from 2019.
  10. it’s an honor and privilege. And thank you for turning me to ZAXCOM and giving me all the valuable advises through the years. It changed my carrier and led to the invention of my OneUnit that turned on it’s self in to the perfect execution of Zaxcom Nova OneUnit. So in a way it is thanks to you Jeff Wexler that Nova OneUnit exist. I and the rest of community owes you so much!
  11. 100+ days update Running Nova OneUnit since the beginning in the end of august has been free of any major issues and only had minor bugs remembering settings and unavailable options. My Nova OneUnit has been used almost every day and I am already over 100 days of operation. The evolution of the software and the interface was strong and became more and more powerful. The RF reception value on the corresponding recording track is a game changer in the way we work. Time Code is rock solid. Analog front end and output/monitoring sound great. RF Range is well above previous zaxcom gear and the swift control over zaxnet was perfected to become so easy and fast. having 8 wireless receivers in such a small box is still something that awes me every day. I dont have to break my back anymore. I have been using 1.69 since Howy released it and consider it to be a major point for bug free operation. There was a lot of work done by zaxcom and the beta testers and there is a lot more work "and extra hardware 🙂" to be done. Looking at the prioritized list of future development there is a lot of good things coming. But as of the week before the holidays most of the Nova OneUnit has been complete. Zaxcom delivered the product. Now they just need to deliver it to the many users that want it and have it preordered
