zaxnet commands from maxx.

Recommended Posts

Great news for Maxx owners:

Just spoke to Glenn and asked him about zaxnet commands from maxx TC out.

He assured me it will happen.

No timeline yet but still a positive development.

So how would that work? ZaxNet menu inserted into main menu system? Could it adjust transmitter settings as well?

Yes there will be a new ZaxNet menu in the Maxx that will have all the remote commands in it.

You can control TX gain, frequency, output power level and start / stop the recorder.

A dedicated Menu for Zaxnet on the Recorder is great. We don't even have this on the Deva/Fusion!! Have to use the flimsy Ifb100 screen and buttons.

 

Yes and no.  Via an IFB100, the Deva can control the start and stop of transmitter recording, and individual transmitter gain controls can be mapped to any of the front panel, or virtual, level controls.

 

Transmitter sleep, wake, and frequency adjustments are via the IFB100 buttons.

Sounds great! If only there was a way to network the QRX receivers with the Maxx/Nomad/Deva so that when you scan the receiver and pick a freq it auto remote changes the right Tx, which is the absolute coolest feature of the QRX235+IFB combo. Currently I think you can only achieve that function if you have an IFB option QRX in the bag and have all the receivers strung together with the macguyvered USB cables...

 

Zax should have started putting ethernet connectors on all their gear awhile ago!

+1 for Zaxnet screen for the Deva/Fusion.

Perhaps it could even use the shifted Mon button (wireless) that doesn't do anything, for a Zaxnet menu?

It's been a very long time since any attention has been paid to the Fusion and it's feeling left out! :)

However, it would be WAY cooler if the Maxx could have an IFB200 module instead of a camera link module so we don't have to take up more bag real estate. Any plans for that?

Agreed! And Zax would sell more ERX receivers...

Or.. maybe they should make a UHF IFB receiver...

Ha ha.

I proposed that long time ago.

Wanted more range.

Now I use comteks for range.

Meaning you don't use ERX's at all any more? Or switch out when you need more range? No luck with a booster of some sort for the ERX's?

On my cart I use 1w Amp, Corner antenna and ERX on cameras and director/producers.

In my bag I use erx on cameras and comtek for director/producers.

It's called a Nomad? If they offered IFB on Maxx, it would surely cannibalize the Nomad 10.

However, if they offered a camera link module in Nomad 10 I would be all over it.

Does this make the TC out switchable? If so, when in ZNet mode, what it's the command signal path? Through the Maxx SMA, out of the TC BNC, or some other way?
