At the heart of his rig is a full rack comprising eight industry standard Lectrosonics UDR200d dual-channel, half-rack, diversity UHF receivers. \"Everything in my world is done wirelessly - the boom operator, the cast members - and we move so quickly that we don't have time to deal with cable.\" Daly is also responsible for wireless headphone feeds to everyone on the set, including Lectrosonics IFBs to several key people. With the production shot very quickly in the streets of New York - up to ten script pages a day, compared to three pages on a feature film - the Lectrosonics gear has to be 100 percent reliable in an environment thick with background RF signals. \"In New York, you've always got the potential of getting hits from competing productions in the area,\" says Daly, who is thankful for the 256 user-selectable frequencies that the UDR200C receiver offers. \"Having the ability to switch channels is great. Sure, everything works when you're standing next to the receiver, but go 50 feet away and everything can change.\" Having taught electronics in the Navy before starting his career in the film business, Daly has a strong background in RF technology and was attracted to the Lectrosonics frequency-agile system as soon as it hit the market in 1995. \"It was so intelligently done, with the LecNet software. It's genius. With LecNet you're able to actually look at the RF spectrum and see what's happening on the next block. That really sold me.\" LecNet provides remote computer control and monitoring of the receiver via the unit's serial port. \"So I've been a fan for a couple of generations of Lectrosonics products,\" continues Daly. He was already using the company's original VHF system when, after 21 years of working asa sound mixer on films such as \"9 1\/2 Weeks,\" \"JFK\" and \"Six Degrees of Separation,\" he moved to television and \"Law & Order.\" That was well before the diversity receivers, that are now so commonplace, were available. But as he notes, \"The thing that was generally missing at the beginning of RF mic use was the solid RF link. When Lectrosonics came out with their original VHF system it was like a miracle. I had a solid RF link that sounded great.\" Indeed, the Lectrosonics system is so rock solid that Daly experienced only his first failure in 15 years just recently. Not bad for a system that gets pounded in an eight-day per episode shooting schedule, 18 hours a day, nine months a year, for the two dozen episodes that make up a season. \"But that's nothing compared to what the actors do to the transmitters - all the fights and chases, as well as getting slammed against walls and rolling around in water and mud,\" he points out. But if anything does go askew, Daly says, Lectrosonics - and Gotham Audio, who supply much of the show's gear - are there to support him. \"When I first got the system both Lectrosonic's president, Larry Fisher, and vice president, Gordon Moore, came in to meet with me. Now we've got sales support from their east-coast rep, Howard Kaufmann, who has been invaluable. Howard has been to the set a dozen times over the past years and brings his frequency spectrum analyzer with him for in-depth measurements.\" Daly, who has worked on various Dick Wolf productions since starting in television, reveals that sound mixing is \"one of the few jobs in the film business where you are not told what to use. In fact, the less they know the better they like it. The only caveat is that it had better work. You have to be able to clearly hear the dialogue. When you're spending millions a week on a show, you can't afford audio screw-ups. So Lectrosonics is the lifeline to my work.\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971,Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.

As a result, ESPN has greatly benefited by the widespread appeal of this burgeoning gaming competition and is currently preparing to air coverage of the 2005 WSOP tournament, held June 2-15. For Tony Kremer, principal engineer and founder of Kinetic Productions Las Vegas, the World Series of Poker is one of the more enjoyable location recording events. \"I work on the Olympics for NBC and have a wide range of other sports clients, such as Championship Boxing for both Showtime and HBO,\" explains Kremer, who launched Kinetic in 1990. \"Obviously, this is not a physically active sport like most you see and hear on television. It's, well, a bunch of people sitting down at a table to play a game of poker! But it does require intense mental skill and stamina.\" The intimate, subdued drama of a broadcast event such as the World Series of Poker essentially demands superb location sound. \"There is no second chance,\" explains Kremer. \"In terms of actual game play on the table, what happens is what happens, and we've got to get it. If somebody mutters something clever or interesting, ESPN wants it to be there on tape. It's got to be as clean and clear as possible with no breakups or hiss.\" Realizing this, Kremer chose to record all current and future WSOP events using the Lectrosonics Venue Series of receivers along with LM Digital Hybrid Wireless(tm) transmitters and Countryman EMW lavaliers. According to Kremer, Kinetic Productions' mobile recording rig greatly benefits from the ergonomics for which the Venue Series has become quickly and deservedly known. \"I've had great experiences using all of the Lectrosonics ENG stuff,\" recalls Kremer. \"Lectrosonics is well known for reliability and durability. Their transmitters are made of machined aluminum, and they take a pounding in thefield while always working strong. Last year, Lectrosonics' Gordon Moore showed me a prototype for the Venue receiver, which really interested me. At the time, I realized that I was going to start doing more reality-type television programming where multiple microphones would be required in a very small amount of space. After seeing the Venue receiver, I knew it would fit this application nicely.\" Operating via Lectrosonics' exclusive Digital Hybrid Wireless technology, the Venue Receiver System is a six-channel, 1U modular UHF unit that works seamlessly with both digital hybrid and select analog transmitters. The Venue Receiver combines 24-bit digital audio with an analog FM radio link, overcoming channel noise while eliminating compandor circuits and their accompanying artifacts. Features include 256 synthesized UHF frequencies per receiver module, a built-in antenna distribution amplifier, and much more. The Venue's DSP compatibility modes, in addition to the Digital Hybrid Wireless mode, allow backwards-compatibility with all Lectrosonics analog wireless systems and certain models from other manufacturers. For Kremer, this was an especially attractive feature. \"With the exception of older VHF stuff, the Venue worked with the existing transmitters that I already had,\" Kremer explains. \"That was an interesting benefit of which we are just now starting to take advantage. We had some Sennheiser handheld microphones that we wanted to use with the Venue Receiver, and after testing them, we found that they worked great.\" For recording WSOP events, Kremer and sidekick Alan Strusser, record all production audio - ten player mics, two dealer mics, a PA feed and a hardwired stereo effects mic - to two sync'd TASCAM DA-88 machines via a Mackie 1604 VLZ mixer. \"The Mackie is used for the reference mix,\" explains Kremer. \"The receivers plug into the Mackie. Then we take the preamp outputs straight to tape. Our configuration uses two Venue receivers and a total of twelve wireless units. At any given time, we canhave anywhere up to ten players at the table. We also pre-wire a second dealer because dealers are always changing out, and both dealer mics are always being printed to DA-88.\" The addition of the Lectrosonics Venue receiver to Kinetic Productions' mobile rig has also physically lightened Kremer's load. \"Suddenly I could fit six receivers in one rack space,\" Kremer explains. \"The Venue has the features I need to do multi-channel wireless without additional bulk. It's not just six receivers. It's six receivers, plus an antenna multi-coupler with looping outputs. That's a great advantage because we only need one set of antennas to feed all twelve receivers instead of a separate antennas, multi-couplers, etc. The Venue receiver has everything I need in one package. It even has a spectrum analyzer built in.\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.

The SM (for \"Super Mini\") is ideal for professionals desiring an incredibly high-powered, cost-effective and compandor-free wireless transmitter in a remarkably tiny and splash-proof package. No stranger to wireless technology, Adrianos has worked as a production sound mixer for television, movies and documentaries for the past 33 years. Adrianos was intrigued with the SM from the first moment he saw the prototype at NAB 2004. \"I got very excited about it because of potential production applications due to the very small size\" he relates. \"On a movie set or on location, speed is important... and anything to make our job go faster is key. At the same time, size is very important because of practicality. So when they finally offered me a unit for beta testing on the show, I told them that I can't just show up with one of these things - the other actresses will all want one, too. I'll need enough for all of them right away!\" Adrianos describes the particular challenges faced on the show. \"Women's wardrobes are becoming scantier than ever thus it's always difficult hiding transmitters. With the SM, once they are set up it's very quick for us to get them on and off the actors as well as hide them in, ahem, places where they are not seen on camera. This product gives us a clear advantage in terms of invisibility.\" The small size and light weight were important factors in one specific shoot. \"In the last episode, there was a scene where the guys get into a fight in a rock quarry. Normally, larger transmitters would have a tendency to shift or come loose in an active scene like this. But with the SM, it was not a problem. We were underpretty difficult conditions; outside and a good distance away because of the wide shots, but they performed great!\" Adrianos is also pleased with the compatibility modes offered in the SM. \"The emulation factor - that the transmitter can work with any of the Lectrosonics receivers - makes it very versatile for people who have the different series. I have UCR205s and UCR195s, which are a little older, and I was able to dial the SM right in. It worked immediately with my receivers and sounded great.\" One further thing noted by Adrianos is the support given by the manufacturer. \"Lectrosonics has been tremendous. I always have the ability to call them for full technical support or any issue from their engineering staff, either through email or on the phone. And typically when radio mics are used, I use Lectrosonics - I've always used them. And the SM is a winner in my book!

While unpacking the few pieces of live audio gear she travels with - dual Lectrosonics UR100 and UM100 UHF belt-pack receiver\/transmitter wireless systems - she once again heard familiar praises directed towards her wireless systems of choice. \"The sound technician at Carnegie Hall said, 'Lectrosonics? I love this gear!'\" recalls Stanfield. \"He said, 'This is great wireless equipment,' then shows it to another technician, saying, 'This is what they use in the movies.' Cool, huh?\" Stanfield and her company, Keynote Concerts, provide music-based motivational events - \"concerts with a message, \"- and have built quite a successful business in doing so. Rayburn, who calls his show 'Classically Trained... Comically Derailed,' is a deft, tasteful guitar player with a quick, witty tongue. Together, the duo graced the stage of Carnegie's Zankel Hall via their individual mettles of music, humor, and stirring messages. Clearly, Stanfield, along with Rayburn, who also employs Lectrosonics wireless systems in his act, is a proud Lectrosonics user. After years of using - and breaking - other wireless systems, Stanfield made the switch to Lectrosonics with the encouragement of Bill Johnson, owner of Bill Johnson's Western Connection in Phoenix, Arizona. For 20 years, Johnson has marketed and sold the Lectrosonics line to the motivational speaker market. \"I heard from Bill and other speakers that Lectrosonics was the best, and I bought the systems from him,\" Stanfield explains. \"I use a flesh-colored Countryman ISOMAX Stealth earset microphone with a wireless pack for my voice and a wireless pack for my guitar, which I wear on my guitar strap. I think the best thing about the Lectrosonics gear is its 'dropability.' I've tested them on concrete andmarble floors around the world, and played with this system in countries including Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Bali, and Canada. So far, I've dropped it in three-fourths of those countries.\" Rayburn, who was encouraged to purchase the same Lectrosonics wireless systems by an elated Stanfield, cites several reasons why switching to the UR100\/UM100 gear was such an important decision. \"First of all,\" he begins, \" It's hard to get something that sounds good and is small enough to travel with. I'm in a different place each night, so it has to be durable. It's reliable, sounds great, and I've never had anything to go wrong with my transmitters and I've had them for three years.\" Offering 256 synthesized UHF frequencies, the Lectrosonics UM100 belt-pack transmitter gives users unprecedented transmission quality and is perfect for environments where radio interference can be a problem. The lightweight, aluminum-constructed UM100 features wide range input limiting, dual LEDs for accurate gain adjustment, a dual-band compander, and a variable low-frequency roll-off. A small, yet rugged alloy antenna and a contoured, wire belt clip is also included. According to Stanfield, a performer working in the realm of motivational speaking almost requires having a wireless system like her Lectrosonics rig. \"If I'm going to the other side of the world to perform, I can only take two bags,\" she explains. \"One is my Calton guitar case, which I check on an international flight. The other bag holds everything else I need for the trip - clothes, shoes, a few CDs, and my two wireless systems, all of which has to be under 50 lbs. This gear is so small that it hardly takes up any room and adds virtually no weight.\" Finally, an all-battery operation combined with impeccable build quality make the UM100 a no-brainer for Carnegie Hall-worthy artists such as Stanfield and Rayburn. \"I don't have to worry about plugging it in while in different countries,\" explains Stanfield with a sense of relief. \"And finally, I know that ifsomeone says to me, 'We're having a problem with your sound,' I know it's not my wireless. I can say to them, 'I use this equipment all around the world, and I never - ever - have a problem with it.\" Often, illustrates Rayburn, a motivational speaker doesn't know what to expect of their next performance venue. Because of that, arriving with a fail-proof wireless system goes a long way to reducing audio-induced headaches. \"Every night is a different system,\" Rayburn explains. \"One minute you have a professional sound company and an arena system, the next you're in a hotel meeting room with a small Mackie mixer and a couple of JBL speakers. What you want to do in those situations, as simply as possible, is limit the variables. If you have something you can really count on, like the Lectrosonics systems, it just makes life easier.\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.

The renowned guitarist, who has been performing and writing with Billy Idol for all but a few of the last 23 years, is currently mid-tour promoting the singer's new album, \"Devil's Playground,\" the first album of new material from Idol and Stevens together in over 12 years. Designed for use with both electric and acoustic instruments, the Lectrosonics IS400, consisting of the IM transmitter and R400A receiver, utilizes a proprietary digital algorithm to encode the audio signal into an analog format for transmission over an FM wireless carrier, which is then converted back into digital audio via DSP at the receiver. According to Stevens' guitar tech, Tim Kennedy, it was about time. \"We've been waiting for years for something like this to appear,\" he says. Having researched the options online, Stevens had Kennedy contact Karl Winkler, director of business development at Lectrosonics. \"Karl came to our show in Albuquerque with a brand new unit for us to try out. Steve plugged into it, played a couple of chords through it, and then I plugged him into a cable to hear the difference. It was really, really close to the sound of the cable. Steve said, that's it, it's the best one I've ever heard.\" Kennedy continues, \"It's as close to a straight wire that we've been able to find. My ears aren't the greatest from years of abuse but even I could tell the difference! And Steve's still over the moon about it.\" The design of the IS400 effectively eliminates the need for an analog compander circuit and provides superior audio dynamic and frequency response when compared to analog systems. Kennedy confirms, \"It has an overall great sound, a nice warmth to it, and an all-around full sound, as you'd get from a cable.\" Setup could not be easier, according to Kennedy. \"It's very user friendly from a tech aspect. One cool feature is SmartTune\u2122.It basically scans the frequencies and finds the best frequency at that location. Even if the frequency you used the night before comes up, it may not be the cleanest frequency available at the moment.\" Performance and reliability have also been rock solid, he observes. \"We haven't had any issues with the RF side. From a small club stage to a festival stage with 50,000 people, we haven't had any signal loss, no dropout and no compromise to the sound. Lectrosonics did their homework and built a great product.\" It has been completely trouble free, according to Kennedy. \"We've been using it for about two months and, other than operator error, have not had any problems with it. Any issues I have had, the people at Lectrosonics have been great and taken care of us right away. It really is a great product. And a little known secret, but within the year it'll be the hot little kid in the neighborhood.\" Idol and Stevens have been busy promoting the new release all over Europe and are currently performing throughout the U.S., including the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, and dates across Canada. \"It's a good show, and for the most part we're selling out everywhere we go,\" Kennedy shares. \"We're also doing some dates on the Warped Tour and showing the little punk skater kids how it's supposed to be done!\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.

In late 2001, Prof. Michael Potegal of the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics approached Orfield Labs - a Minneapolis-based firm specializing in acoustics vibration, vision, lighting, architecture, and market research - about choosing and testing equipment for a study that required the acoustic monitoring of children in the midst of a tantrum. Upon accepting the project, Orfield Labs' task was to devise a means of recording the children's vocalizations in an accurate and unobtrusive manner. To capture and record the study's associated histrionics effectively, Berg insists that having a superior wireless recording system is a must. \"In all cases, we needed equipment that was accurate, compact, durable, and easy to use.\" As a result, Orfield Labs chose to record all sounds via a miniature microphone embedded in a vest worn by the child. A compact wireless transmitter would also be located on the vest, and its associated receiver and a digital recorder would be located nearby. Once recorded as .wav files, tantrum audio data could be transferred to audio workstations for evaluation and further manipulation. After much consideration, Orfield Labs selected and field-tested a small, yet crucial, recording rig featuring the Lectrosonics MM400a transmitter, Lectrosonics R400 receiver , Countryman model EMW microphone, and the Marantz PMD670 digital recorder. \"When selecting the wireless link for our project, we had several general requirements and several additional requirements specific to our needs,\" explains Berg. \"For the transmitter, we needed a compact and durable package with minimal controls and a usable battery life. The receiver's form-factor was less important, but the link required high dynamic range, wide frequency response, and low noise. A requirement specific to our use isfaithful reproduction of the dynamic character of the signal being recorded. For this reason, we chose a system that eliminates the compandor circuitry found in most wireless links. The Lectrosonics 400 Series wireless systems utilize a digital hybrid technology that eliminates the need for compandor circuitry.\" The MM400A miniature transmitter uses Lectrosonics' compandor-eliminating Digital Hybrid Wireless(tm) operational technology, which combines 24-bit audio with an FM radio link to suppress noise and improve fidelity. Features of the MM400A include 256 synthesized UHF frequencies, 100mW of hearty output power, wide range input limiting, dual bicolor LEDs for indication of gain adjustment, and a waterproof machined aluminum casing. A perfect compliment to the MM400A, the R400 Digital Hybrid Wireless receiver offers such trademarked Lectrosonics features as SmartSquelch and SmartDiversity, has 256 UHF frequencies, and is compatible with all 400 Series transmitters as well as many analog models. The unit provides a backlit LCD display, a balanced XLR audio output, and a compact, sturdy chassis. \"After looking over the offerings and talking to Lectrosonics, I focused on the M400A,\" explains Berg about his choice of Lectrosonics transmitters and receivers. \"It had the performance we were looking for, combined with high-durability and a very small size. A lack of bulky controls was also important as well, as each system is calibrated and 'locked down' for field use. The M400A has only a small gain control, which, fortunately, is resistant to inadvertent adjustment. The R400 was the natural receiver for our purposes. There was no need for battery power, extreme portability, or multiple channels, like is offered in a Venue Series receiver. Also, the batter level monitoring feature on the receiver was nice.\" Berg's experience in helping the University of Minnesota find a superior wireless recording system for its tantrum studies has resulted in another sure but independent conclusion: Berg now wantsLectrosonics gear of his very own. \"Prof. Potegal (or the investigators) will be purchasing several additional systems for the study at the end of their beta testing period,\" explains Berg. \"I also look forward to acquiring and using a Lectrosonics UH400 Digital Hybrid Wireless plug-in transmitter for use in audio system measurement and possible use in other field acoustic testing applications. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to specify Lectrosonics systems for use in many wireless audio applications.\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.

Citing the numerous challenges of performing in an unflattering acoustic environment, Jim Elliott, technical director for the Amarillo Opera in Amarillo, Texas, has miked opera singers, but always quite regretfully. Finally, Elliott felt that it was due time for \"a better solution\" than their well-worn and 15-year-old Telex wireless microphone systems. \"The most important thing to know about opera is that it and microphones don't mix,\" explains Elliott, laughing. \"It's an insult to most opera singers if you put a microphone on them - it's something that's just not done very often. Our problem is that we currently perform in a venue that seats 2,400 people and doesn't have a balcony. It's a long, flat room, and there are some definite dead spots. Even the best opera singer cannot fill that hall because of the acoustics. For the last ten years, we've 'sweetened' the sound of opera singers by miking them. The great thing about all of that is that we're getting ready to move into a venue where we won't have to do that anymore. But in the meantime, we needed a better solution.\" So Elliott began his search for a well-built and unobtrusive wireless microphone system, something that would also offer superior frequency agility. \"We now perform in a civic center, which has a coliseum right across the hallway,\" illustrates Elliott. \"There are also two banquet and two exhibit halls in the building. With the coliseum hosting tractor pulls, hockey, and indoor football, we're always running up against strange frequencies. We needed a product that would search for frequencies and helped us re-assign quickly. With the help of Kyle McMenamin of Pro AV Texas, we found the Lectrosonics Venue System. After seeing local, Paramount Terrace Christian Church use it, and with just a little more research on our part, I knew the Venue was what we needed.\" Pro AV Texas'McMenamin has been a fan of Lectrosonics gear for quite some time, a fact that allowed him to confidently recommend the Venue system to Elliott and the Amarillo Opera. \"I can't speak highly enough of the Lectrosonics Venue,\" McMenamin offers. \"Jim had been looking for a new wireless system, and I priced a Lectrosonics that actually beat the price of a much lesser system. He was gracious enough to give me the bid, and after using it, he felt that it was the greatest wireless system in the world. They had no more wireless problems.\" Nominated for a 2005 TEC Award, the Venue Receiver is a modular UHF wireless unit designed to operate with Lectrosonics' Digital Hybrid Wireless\u2122 and some analog transmitters. The Venue Receiver features a Venue Receiver Master (VRM) - (comprised of an antenna multi-coupler, computer communications interface, and receiver module rack-mounting) as well as one to six plug-in receiver modules. Operational features of the Venue Receiver include 256 synthesized UHF frequencies per receiver module, built-in antenna multi-coupler, LCD interface for setup and monitoring, USB\/RS-232 computer interfacing with included software, and much more. The Amarillo Opera chose to purchase ten channels of the Lectrosonics Venue Receiver system in two chassis - one with six modules, and one with four. Citing \"invisibility\" as a clear perk, Elliott completed the wireless system package with Countryman IsoMax E6 EarSet microphones and the compact Digital Hybrid Wireless\u2122 LM transmitter beltpacks. To ease transport for the Amarillo Opera's numerous location events, the Venue units reside in a rack-mounted and castered road case with on-board distro system. \"We're also going to use the Lectrosonics system with our outreach teams,\" explains Elliott. \"They perform in schools all over the Texas panhandle and needed a small PA system for traveling.\" The portable PA - also configured by Pro AV Texas - features a 12-channel Soundcraft Spirit mixing console, a dbx DSP processor, and JBL Eon loudspeakers. As the Amarillo Opera completes a production of \"Beauty and the Beast\" and prepares for a fall production of \"Hansel and Gretel,\" Elliott finally feels confident with his chosen microphone wireless system. \"Having the small beltpacks and smaller microphones will be great for all the action involved in 'Hansel and Gretel,'\" says Elliott with eager anticipation. \"In the spring, we move into a brand new hall and I hope that we don't need to use the microphones there.

Working closely with some of the U.S. military's most distinguished surgeons in the Medical Multimedia Flagship, Miller daily records both audio and video of the latest surgical processes, which is then compiled to train others stationed in Air Force hospitals worldwide. Miller insists that for the longest time, his department possessed a very capable video system, yet the quality of his audio gathering tools was lacking to the point of his perpetual embarrassment. \"The equipment that I was provided was never up to par with what these doctors expected from a professional organization,\" explains Miller. \"I've had wireless audio equipment that just wasn't reliable, and would have to make 'workarounds' for things just to function. I literally had a junk drawer full of wireless mics that we used. It was like using a 500 horsepower dragster in the Avid system, and then my audio system was like using training wheels on it. Doctors would ask, 'What do you mean you have a $164,000 Avid system? And the audio sounds like this?' I finally said, 'That's it, I'm not going to skimp anymore.'\" After doing a bit of research and talking with Texas Media Systems, Miller discovered Lectrosonics wireless audio systems. \"I called Lectrosonics to find out why their equipment has such a good reputation and learned a lot about their stellar manufacturing process,\" he recalls. Soon after, he purchased a bevy of aluminum-housed Lectrosonics products: the UCR201 Compact UHF Receiver, UCR411a Digital Hybrid Wireless(tm) compact receiver, UM200C wideband UHF belt-pack transmitter, and the UM400 Digital Hybrid Wireless UHF belt-pack transmitter, which, says Miller, is still on back order. He can hardly wait to get it. \"I have the othermodels, but the UM400 is going to be my baby. Now I have equipment that's better than what 'combat camera' gets; it's so rugged that it could go off to war, if need be.\" Blake Naleid at Texas Media Systems explains that \"The absence of analog companders in the 400 series completely removes the audio artifacts from the equation\" and adds that the MM400A \u201cis also very small and comfortable to wear, which is important to doctors conducting surgical procedures. Both the analog UM200C and the Digital Hybrid MM400A have a powerful 100mW RF output which reduces audio dropouts.\u201d Along with his new Lectrosonics wireless microphone equipment, Miller's audio and video rig features Canon GL1-S cameras for location video recording, dual Avid Media Composer systems, and an analog Mackie mixer for his productions' dialogue-only audio tracks. \"We'll incorporate the Lectrosonics equipment into our in-house recording setup, too,\" insists Miller. \"I'm going to use it for everything.\" The compact UCR201 receiver is designed for use in camera-mounted applications for field production and location recording, and is compatible with all 200 Series transmitters. The UCR201 offers 256 selectable frequencies over a 25.6 MHz bandwidth in standard frequency blocks in 25 MHz steps from 537.600 to 742.200 MHz. Other features include microprocessor control, balanced XLR output, and a multi-function LCD display for audio level, antenna phase, frequency, and a graphic RF spectrum analyzer. The UCR411A is also designed for field and location use, and offers all adjustments from its front panel, making it a perfect choice for use in portable, rack-mount carriers. Lectrosonics' patent-pending Digital Hybrid Wireless(tm) technology is used in the UCR411A, which also features 256 selectable frequencies, auto-tracking front-end filters, DSP-based pilot tone, a backlit LCD display, balanced XLR output, and compatibility modes for use with analog transmitters including those from the 200 Series. The UM200C is a 100mW UHF transmitterincorporating a circulator\/isolator and is ideal for use in environments where television and radio broadcast equipment can cause frequency coordination problems. The UM200C features 256 frequencies selected in 100kHz steps, dual LEDs, a variable low-frequency roll-off adjustment, wide-range input limiting, and a dual-band compandor. Built for use with Digital Hybrid Wireless(tm) receivers, the UM400 offers 256 synthesized UHF frequencies, dual envelope input limiter, dual bicolor LEDs for level checking and mode indication, a circulator\/isolator output stage, adjustable frequency roll-off, DSP-based pilot-tone signal, and a big 100mW of output power. Miller's work on surgical videos places him in demanding environments where there simply isn't a second take. As a result, he simply cannot worry about whether his audio system is working properly. With his new Lectrosonics wireless microphone setup, substandard audio 'cleanups' and making do are no longer the standard for Miller. \"The quality of the audio is very important in the narrative aspect when the doctor puts the video together,\" Miller explains. \"Before, I would have to use the equalizer built into the Avid system to get the sound to an acceptable level. But even then, it really never got there. It never had the quietness or dynamic range that the Lectrosonics equipment provides. Now, the people we record will be more confident. They are rarely speakers and often shy away from the microphone. When I tell them that this is a piece of equipment that will get their message across, which in turn teaches them to save lives over in the war, they're going to feel a lot more confident and sound a whole lot better.\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.Lectrosonics is a US manufacturer based in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. . .

The 16 input, 12 output DM1612 matrix mixers are a key component in the recording and sound reinforcement systems installed by CourtSmart, a leading supplier of fault tolerant, database-driven courtroom audio\/video recording and archiving systems. \"The Lectrosonics DM1612 mixers form the cornerstone of the audio collection process in 94 courtrooms,\" explains Andrew Treinis, president and CEO of CourtSmart. Treinis, whose company installed all of the audio equipment in each of the 94 courtrooms, from the microphones to the digital recording systems, describes the basic signal flow. \"All the microphones signals go into the Lectrosonics mixer. And out of that mixer comes the analog audio signals that go into the CourtSmart digital recording systems. So the DM1612 is a very critical piece of the digital recording process and keeping and maintaining the record.\" The mixers also support the sound reinforcement systems and assistive listening devices in the courtrooms. The choice of manufacturer was the result of a thorough evaluation process, he reports. \"We did an extensive search and compared three different mixers - Lectrosonics and two other products - which we installed in three courtrooms in DC. The evaluation showed that the Lectrosonics DM mixer was the best of the three products tested overall.\" \"When we looked at everything,\" he continues, \"including reliability, function and price-performance, the Lectrosonics ended up on top of the list.\" Of those features, reliability is the most critical, he says. \"Even though we have fault-tolerant computers and redundancy across the board, from dual servers, encoding paths and wiring, the single fail point is the mixer. If the mixer in the courtroom fails, there is no backup.\" The evaluation process was exhaustive, he says. \"We tested these products for acouple of months, very extensively, and we talked to users. We took the DM1612 apart to the board level. We inspected every component. We saw how it was put together. We made sure they were using the right components, and quality components. And we looked at the way they were manufactured, making sure that there was no loose solder or questionable manufacturing. Based on that, we decided that the Lectrosonics product was probably going to be more reliable than any of the others. So far, we haven't had a single failure.\" In total there are 11 two-Terabyte primary servers, three archive servers, and five backup servers located in a central machine room for fault-tolerant, non-stop, voice-activated recording of all court proceedings. Two remote buildings also stream audio into that central location. The DM1612 mixers and the sound reinforcement systems are located in each individual courtroom. Treinis marvels, \"The economies are tremendous when you consider the amount of money that used to be spent, having a single person in every courtroom. Now, you have a central repository that's networked and any judge can access anything that's been recorded. Even though it's our technology I continue to be amazed at how efficient, reliable, and accurate it is!\" About Lectrosonics Well respected within the film, broadcast, and theater technical communities since 1971, Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems and audio processing products are used daily in mission-critical applications by audio engineers familiar with the company's dedication to quality, customer service, and innovation.
