Audio Limited to Offer Recording on U.S. A10-TX Wireless Transmitters

Audio Ltd. has announced a new recording feature for A10-TX Digital Wireless transmitters sold in the U.S. market. The firmware revision 2.0 brings built-in recording from balanced microphone and line-level inputs to the A10-TX.

Audio Ltd. said the A10 Digital Wireless System includes two components, the A10-TX transmitter and A10-RX two-channel receiver. The A10 U.S. system operates on UHF frequencies from 470 to 608 MHz. Up to 15 systems can operate simultaneously on a U.S. television channel.

The system is fully digital. Microphone signals are converted to digital at the transmitter and remain digital all the way through to the receiver’s output. A digital system offers full-bandwidth, full-dynamic-range audio without the audible artifacts associated with analog RF links.

The A10-TX transmitter offers a universal audio input accepting two-wire lavalier microphones, balanced microphones (selectable 12V or 48V phantom power) and balanced line-level signals. The new firmware adds an integrated digital recorder with a precise timecode generator.
