  1. Zaxcom has reached out to Rode regarding the introduction of the Wireless Go II product and a potential license for our recording wireless patents. We have not had a response yet but are willing to begin a dialog to reach a deal that would be beneficial to both companies. The result of the IPR cases (Patent office cases) filed by Lectrosonics against Zaxcom in an attempt to invalidate our patents was a clear win for Zaxcom. While our claims were amended, the court held that the amended claims were valid. All 3 of the patents challenged were upheld with all amended claims left stand
  2. 12 channels is no problem and about to be super easy with the RX4 and a MRX414. The antenna connections go right into the Nova RF outs and the AES goes into the 4 AES ins. If QRX200s are used an external splitter will get the RF to the 2 receivers. There is about 2 dB gain in the Nova RF out to compensate for the splitter loss. You can always go with whips on the 4 extra receivers as well. Put the new channels on Fader Bank2 or just let the auto mixer handle it with 12 pre fader iso tracks plus your mix track and the the auto-mix track. Glenn
  3. As many have said here. An IFB needs to be good and inexpensive. Removing the SMA antenna helped us keep the price down.
  4. While power consumption is important the size and weight are in many ways more important. With no need for external receivers and their bulky holders and antenna connection cables the Nova stands alone. Test everything out and go for whatever seems right.
  5. Ok I will run some tests Monday. I could be off. I just reran the numbers and got between 9 to 10 hours on paper. Glenn
  6. The Nova will draw about 5 watts without the MRX414 enabled. Each MRX414 4 channel receiver draws 3.6 watts. With 4 working receivers you should get over 11 continuous hours of operation on a 98Wh battery. This is with Zaxnet remote running for transmitter control and time code distribution. Our distributors in France, Belgium or Germany can set you up. Best Wishes Glenn
  7. There will be one. We should get to it soon.
  8. This thread reminds me of a few things. I miss Senator Mike for his ability to point out the obvious in ways no one else could. I hope he is ok. It also reminds me of how good the trx900cl is. After 7 years there is no other stereo link that compares . Two channels of audio and time code transmission , backup recording, 16 kHz audio bandwidth (high fidelity In today’s world). Thanks to all of our customers who embraced this technology and have made it your link of choice
  9. It is a shame Cojo did not test the Zaxcom Boom wireless products. The two units we offer ZMT phantom and the TRX743 offer features that others do not. The best system for Boom will of course sound great and with neverclip there is no Compressor or limiter distortion on our TRX743. We have been selling 100 percent digital wireless with like a hard wire performance for the last 18 years. It is also the only unit to support AES42 (super cmit) mics transmitting both audio channels at the same time. It also directly supports 2 channel transmission with 5 pin xlr stereo mics. We also support intern

    URX100 reception

    URX will not give the same distances as RX200. It is a different animal. If you use a properly sized antenna in the headphone jack you might get close.
  11. The minimum and maximum frequencies have become corrupted in the update. Roger at everything audio can sort you out.
  12. As pointed out here Zaxcom wireless has everything nailed down with nearly 20 years of digital transmission experience. Zaxnet links recorders wireless mics and IFB into a system with unique and powerful capabilities. Wireless time code sync with no need to jam, Transmission reliability, remote control from great distances, recording transmitters, excellent audio quality, crazy small transmitters, multiple transmitter and receiver options, remote replay and re-record and most important, a great dealer in Ambient. I hope you will attend the CAS discussion this Saturday to find out how our syste
  13. If you are considering new gear you should consider Nova by Zaxcom. To keep costs down you can go with used QRX212 receivers inside the Nova. Also you can go with any number of used Zaxcom recording transmitters that will be very cost effective. By starting with Nova you will put together the smallest, lightest sound bag that is set for the future. With Zaxnet remote control you can offer your services without the need to get near talent to make changes to the packs and you will offer a guarantee of a transmitter recording to back up transmission. The Nova cost at $5500 is competitive on its o
  14. I know that our customers sometimes are hired due to the Zaxcom transmitter recording and remote control features of our system. While I always believe it is the craftsman and not the tools. In our case the tool allows the craftsman to show the work in ways not possible otherwise. I would not think we are IBM but I hope we are Apple. Or at least that is the goal. Glenn
  15. Any input can be assigned to any bank up to a single time in each bank. The 2 line level returns are where the count is 18.
  16. Yes it has analog outs if you are not using the Dante outputs. If you use the Dante you must use AES outs or you can use the connections for 8 AES ins and 8 AES outs to connect together 2 RX8s for a total of 16 receivers remoted through Dante with POE.
  17. The RX8 will work with any Dante or AES audio interface. All 8 receivers can be locally controlled in a sound bag or on a sound cart. Remote control directly from Nova and Deva 24 will be supported. There will also be apps to remote control from a sound cart with non Zaxcom recorders. It is our goal to make RX8 work for everyone.
  18. I think the dollar is sitting on top of the RX8. Yes it is really small and lite. Glenn
  19. Our meeting Thursday will be our chance to hold what I would best call a town meeting with anyone who would like to ask any questions about anything Zaxcom or Zaxcom related. I hope we can learn from you so we can make better products and we can answer everyone's questions about how to get the best sonic performance and functionality from our gear.
  20. I will start a thread to reply to you as it is very off topic.
  21. There is alot of behind the scenes tech we do that only seems relevant in the light of compatition. We tend to focus on the big picture. Sometimes when you dig deeper you find the real deal.
  22. There is a link in JWsound under Current. Glenn
  23. Yes the MRX414 is fully compatible with the RX12. We are holding a Zoom meeting on this Thursday. I hope all can attend. The info is on our Nova/Wireless Facebook page. You never know what might be announced.
  24. The Nova and Zaxcom wireless is not all or nothing. In fact, nothing backs you up as well. The 4 MRX414 receivers are internally separate so it is unlikely if not impossible for all 4 channels to go out. If a receiver did need to be swapped it takes about 1 minute. With all of the recordings backed up in the transmitters even RF interference or failure to roll will not cause a loss of audio. The reliability of the system has been amazing so I would not think this would be a consideration for the Zaxcom Nova and its 8 internal MRX414 receivers.
