Rio Rancho, NM – April 1, 2011… Lectrosonics, recognized the world over as a leading manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products, is introducing a new feature for their Digital Hybrid Wireless receivers that precisely limits the range of the system without altering transmitter power. The new Bounded Squelch feature is in response to users concerned about leakage of wireless microphone transmissions when several facilities are in close proximity, such as theaters in downtown areas or adjacent TV studios. The traditional method of limiting range by using very low transmitter power is demonstrably a poor solution and has become less and less effective due to rising RF noise floors in urban areas. Furthermore, the continuing deployment of white spaces devices will cause increasing problems with low power transmissions. more

Vaddio Unveils New HD Robotic PTZ Camera Comparable to 3-Chip Broadcast Camera

New ClearVIEW HD-20 Features “True Native HD Imaging?

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 1, 2011) – Experience true 1080p HD video quality, without the artifacts and noise so many single chip HD cameras produce, with Vaddio’s newest high definition camera, the ClearVIEW HD-20. With a glass multi-element 20x motorized zoom lens and the newly designed precision slip-clutch robotics, the HD-20 provides fluid broadcast-quality motion control with smooth pan/tilt operation for accurate camera movement and control.

“The challenge with building the industry’s first True Single Chip HD PTZ camera was finding an imaging sensor that could natively display 1080p images,? explained President of Vaddio Rob Sheeley. “Because traditional CMOS pixels get really small in sensors larger than 2-megapixels, most video camera manufacturer’s stay with lower resolution sensors and scale a 720 image to 1080. By scaling the image, the pixel size remains large, while still reducing the noise and light more
