Zaxcom Introduces 2.4-GHz Support, Virtual Multitrack Recording With New Audio Transmitter

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J. — Aug. 1, 2007 – Zaxcom, a pioneering provider of professional audio equipment for the television and film industries, today announced a new entry into its family of wireless microphone systems, the IFB100 transmitter. Designed to integrate with the company’s popular TRX900 series of wireless microphones, the IFB100 transmits a single RF carrier — containing time code, IFB audio, and remote control signals — to any number of TRX900 wireless systems. The unit provides users with the patent-pending ability to record a group of channels and then play them back as a virtual multitrack recording. Additionally, the IFB100 can be used in conjunction with a bag-to-camera link to provide ongoing confidence monitoring with audio relayed directly to the sound mixer.

“We’re pleased to introduce our new IFB100, which will be shown for the first time at IBC2007. Because the unit operates on the 2.4-GHz wavelength, it can be used license free in almost any country, effectively expanding the reach of our company and technologies to a more global marketplace,” said Glenn Sanders, president of Zaxcom. “By transmitting signals to any number of wireless recording systems, the IFB100 is robust enough to facilitate a virtual multitrack recording, yet compact enough to be used on sound carts, mounted on the side of video cameras, or in the studio.”

The IFB100 contains a two-channel audio mixer that combines two separate channels of audio into a single digital transmission. The unit directly accepts SMPTE timecode and balanced audio at line level. Zaxcom’s IFB100 also contains a SMPTE timecode generator that can run at all common frame rates. The system can continuously jam external code or operate in Free Run mode independent of timecode.

The unit’s 125-mW RF power output provides a range of up to 300 feet for transmission of IFB audio and up to 1,000 feet for remote control and timecode transmissions. The unit has a low power consumption of just 125mA at 12 V DC, and can operate with a voltage between 8 V DC and 18 V DC. Users can check the transmitter status and timecode of the IFB100 quickly and easily with the integrated LCD panel.

The IFB100 is available now. To learn more about this product and Zaxcom’s full line of wireless audio systems, please visit www.zaxcom.com.
