  1. Regarding A10 Bluetooth range I finally found time to do some testing. Devices: iPad (6th Gen), older Huawei P9 lite, newer Huawei P9 Smart With the P9 Smart running Android 9 I could not get any connnection at all. Must be a software version problem, very annoying. The older P9 lite needed some refreshing in the app, and the iPad found the A10 instantly. I found that orientation of the A10-TX and the iPad/Huawei made a big impact on signal strength - maybe something I had overlooked in the past when not beeing able to connect and change stuff on a busy set - leading to disabling and completely forgetting about the A10s BT functionality until today. The iPad had the best connection and signal strength when having the screen face TOWARDS the A10-TX. Turning it away from the TX, like you would hold it normally standing before a wired person (facing yourself), reduced signal dramatically! When it was facing the A10, I could be 2m away - turning the iPad around mostly killed the connection. This is a little problematic because the reception is best when facing the A10, but to operate the iPad like that you would stand in between the two devices, which again decreases the reception a lot... I managed somehow to not be in the way by holding it to the side. The Huawei P9 Lite did not really care much about orientation - although I had the impression the phone liked it more when facing AWAY from the A10-TX. More convenient but I felt the connection was a little more unstable than with the iPad. Both devices had the above described reception when beeing held UPRIGHT and NOT HORIZONTAL like you would normally do when looking down on the tablet or phone in your hand. Holding them horizontal decreased signal strength drastically. I may had that wrong in the past! Biggest factor: Having the A10-TX facing TOWARDS the controlling device and having no body(!) in between the devices. When the A10 faced away or against the body, signal dropped the most. Very important for me to know when hiding the TX - with the key hold function activated I never cared if the face was looking away from the body. I could not find a difference with opened or closed battery door (but that would not be practically anyway when hidden under clothing, in a pouch etc.) This led me to the question if the 833 with its external Bluetooth antenna, which should have pretty good range, will get the functions from the app and be able to control the A10-TX directly from the 833 over Bluetooth? This would add some basic ZaxNet functionality to the 833/A10 package. With the ability to maybe connect an even stronger antenna (maybe on a cart) this may be a workable solution? I can't imagine the addition of an connector + external antenna to the 833 only to connect to the SD Remote app. I would really like to hear what is planned for the future integration of the A10 system into the 8-series as this is really important for buying decisions right now, with so much nice stuff coming out from other manufacturers. With competition like the Nova, I really think the time of not saying what's planned is over! Last but not least - not BT related but interesting: I got the tip from my collegue Tjandra Warsosumarto to put some fabric tape around the regular whip antennas to enhance reception when bodymounted. The idea is to create space between the body and the antenna. I can not confirm 100%.... but I have the strongest impression it helped. At least with the last 5 sitdown interviews I did, reception did not completely fail when talent lent back in a chair, burying the TX behind the body. Happened before several times. Maybe this helps someone. Greetings from Austria
  2. Just bought one of these babies, on offer for a tenner on amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bluetooth-Transmitter-Technology-Simultaneously-BT-C3/dp/B00Y0JGI8U They have APTX so make a nice little TX for giving up to two aptx enabled feed headsets for director/cameraman. The aptx is low enough latency to use for non critical use I reckon. Am going to make a headphone out cable for my SD633 aux outputs. Just thought I would share.... Chris King
  3. Hey All, I'm looking for a solution to quickly dump a sound report from my 664 to my iPhone so I can email it off quickly at the end of my workdays. Research so far has led me to WiFi enabled SD cards, WiFi SD card readers and Lightning SD card readers. Currently I think my best potential solution is the WiFi enabled SD cards. It is smallest of the solutions. Most cards seem to have their proprietary apps you have to use to transfer files. Some, like the Eye Fi brand, only allow you to transfer photos and video from cameras. Toshiba Flash Air seems to allow all files to be transferred from their SD cards. Documentation on these products, their specs and transferring functions has not been the easiest to find. NOTE: I am well aware that these cards are not approved media- they would be used to quickly transfer a sound report from the CF to the WiFi SD then onto my iPhone. I am not looking to record successfully on said cards. So before I go blow some $$ on something that may not work, I thought I would ask you wonderfully helpful people here at JWSG: Has anyone had experience using this solution or these WiFi cards in a Sound Devices mixer for simply transferring files to their iPhone/mobile device? Does anyone have another solution that they successfully use to get sound reports to their mobile device in the field without lugging around a laptop? Thanks! Todd Steinhauer

    Bluetooth to XLR

    On a TV show I will have to record a FaceTime call on a phone. The director do not want to see any wire. Do you know if there is a bluetooth to xlr adapter ? I will probably have to send ton the phone the progra (minus 1). Any ideas ? Thank you
