Wisycom Announces MPR50-IFB True Diversity Wireless Receiver at NAB

At NAB, Wisycom has announced the MPR50-IFB True-Diversity Receiver, designed for IFB applications.

Wisycom said this latest compact, belt-pack-style receiver features wideband tuning up to 232MHz, multi-companding processing via Wisycom’s proprietary ENR or ENC algorithm and a custom headphone amplifier designed to maximize headroom to a peak of +23dB.

As with all Wisycom products, the MPR50-IFB offers a wide frequency range (470-798MHz), making it an ideal solution for cinematic and television productions around the world.

“The precise handling afforded by the MPR50-IFB’s multi-companding process provides directors and talent crews with an expanded audio signal and separate release/attack,” said Massimo Polo, sales & marketing director at Wisycom.

“Additionally, its software-selectable narrowband FM-IFB modulation enhances noise immunity and coverage zones.”

The unit features dedicated function buttons and an OLED display, along with transmission and receiver sync functionality. It also features automatic receiver programming via the integrated Rx Manager application, micro-USB cables or an optional Wisycom UPKmini Infrared Programming Kit.

To accommodate the unique needs of staged productions, the MPR50-IFB is available with several disposable and reusable battery configurations, such as two AA NiMH or Alkaline, C3-VS, KLIC 8000 or CR-V3R lithium. It also includes on-board charging via an integrated micro-USB-B connector.
