  1. Do you have a parts/source list?
  2. Should be straight forward 8 channels internal + 4 channels AES... could also add 4 more with the analog inputs too (if you don't need a mix track)
  3. Right – but that's a very different production than "a low budget corporate job" that inspired Tom to make this post and what my comment is referring to.
  4. I get there are sometimes where we do need an incognito look (IEMs, no boom, nondescript bag, etc) but this doesn't sound like it was a "gear" problem, but a production problem. The producers should know where they can or can't shoot, get permits where needed, and have that all figured out before the shoot. This isn't a "low budget" problem, but a pre-production problem... but the client not budgeting enough for competent producers means they get what they pay for.
  5. The mixer can turn off the speaker (individually per unit) in the GUI software, so only "authorized" units can have that feature. Lectrosonics charger for the R1b is $600, and that "just charges" the np50s in 4 units Feel free to build one then! If Sennheiser the maker of cheapest decent wireless systems can't put out an IEM/IFB for less than $500 ($470 for the tour guide version) Why do you think Zaxcom, Lectrosonics, Wysicom, or another more niche manufacturer could do it?
  6. I'm sure they stuck with Ubuntu, as that's the "default" Raspberry Pi distro, pretty simple to then have it run a web server and whatever software they have to send serial commands to the CL3. Likely some python script to listen to the HTTP requests and translate that to the RS422 commands.
  7. Looks like it. A good number of products use an embedded pi (don't blame them, it's a mass produced, and well supported computer). That said, there's a Zaxcom proprietary daughter board, case, and of course software.
  8. I'm intrigued by the new 2021 Hybrid Ford F150 with built in 7kwh generator – hopefully that tech will make it into their vans in a couple years, would be very useful to power base camp or even as an extra generator rental to smaller productions. Not to mention van camping or backup power for your house. (The 10 mile EV only range wouldn't be too useful though) For a personal vehicle, I'd love an electric with a decent range, but with a work van you can't expect a charger at location or fit a charge stop into a production schedule. Until the car batteries can suck up a decent am
  9. There are many 2.4ghz antennas on the market targeted to wifi installations, just watch out that most are RP-SMA, so you'll need an adapter. You, however, may need 4 antennas, as I don't know of any antenna splitters that would work with the deity system
  10. I've only had 2 days on set since March. I was fortunate to have one of my clients switch almost all of their video production work over to Podcasts, so I've been doing technical directing and editorial. Not thriving, but it at least keeps the bills paid. Other than that, there aren't many remote options for our field – which is why so many of us are hurting right now.

    Inverters

    @MickTake a look at some youtube videos by Will Prowse. With just a couple videos and a trip to his website you'll have a whole new understanding of current battery systems and inverters. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoj6RxIAQq8kmJme-5dnN0Q Though he is mostly looking at off-grid solar systems, if you just take the battery and inverter half that's exactly what we need/want for our uses, but yes LiFePO4 are what you should be looking at. If you're up for the task, you can build a 100aH battery for around $400-$500 (plus another $80 for a charger)
  12. No, there's a "remove silence" but for most people's workflows searching for silence isn't something that is needed or wanted. I get why it could be useful – but that's certainly not a need of the regular users of this app.
  13. Might want to delete this and move it to the manufactures and dealers forum. Jeff is pretty tolerant of companies repping their products here – but this post is an advertisement and it doesn't belong in this section. Move it there and support this site and buy a banner Ad, I'm sure they're reasonably priced.
  14. Just saw your follow up question – The battery "everyone" is using is the Inspired Energy NH2054HD34 battery, RRC makes an RRC2054-2 battery that is compatible, and Audioroot has a battery that is OEMed by Inspired Energy, but now offers their own version as well by a different manufacturer There's also a half sized 49wh battery, ND2054hd34, RRC2054, and 48Neo that have the same footprint and charge connector, but are half the length (and power) There are batteries out there with this form factor with Remote Audio and Sound Devices labels – but they are made by Inspired Energy with priva
  15. Audio is low voltage and low current, so you can use almost any wire to repair the headphones, Just contact your favorite local electronics dealer like Farnell https://se.farnell.com/ and search for your 2 conductor wire. You might not find the exact wire used, but it doesn't really matter.
