Mike H Posted August 16, 2016 Report Share Posted August 16, 2016 I would appreciate some help in understanding this system. I will likely buy either Zaxcom or Lectrosonics. I haven’t been able to reach anyone in Zaxcom Sales or Tech Support for two days. I don’t want to start a debate on the two systems. They are both top quality professional systems. I have a decent understanding of Lectrosonics L Series and just need the same understanding of Zaxcom. The initial use will be very simple for commercials/promos/documentaries, with expansion for indies later: - A DPA 4060 lav mic wired to the transmitter (as an option to our Sennheiser MKH-416 shotgun mic). - The receiver will be wired into a Sound Devices 702 recorder. - The 702 will record, and also will output its input to a RED Weapon camera to facilitate syncing waveforms in post. - Questions - As I understand it, Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid technology converts analog to digital in the transmitter, encodes in digital, converts back to analog and then transmits analog FM, along with the digital encoding. How does ZHD differ? - I would want to buy the TRXLA3.5 transmitter, correct? (It provides 100mW capability for only $100 over the TRXLT3). - The dedicated ZHD receiver is not yet available. Any ETA? Any description? - If I buy now I would need to buy the QRX200 receiver if I want to use ZHD modulation, correct? When the dedicated ZHD receiver is available, will I being missing out on any capabilities if I just hold on to the QRX200? I worry about buying just before the new receiver is released. - What is the latency of the ZHD system? - What is the bit rate and sample rate of A-to-D converter in transmitter? - What are the major advantages Zaxcom claims for its system, in addition to a recorder in the transmitter? Thank you. Wonderful to have choices between great equipment. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
