Rio Rancho, NM â€“ NAB Booth# C1717â€¦ Lectrosonics, recognized the world over as a leading manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products, is pleased to announce the Quadpack Receiver Dock. Designed to address an increasing demand for compact, multiple wireless receivers in location and ENG production, the new Lectrosonics Quadpack facilitates installation of two SRa Series Dual Channel Digital Hybrid WirelessÂ® compact receivers on the same or different frequency blocks into a portable, lightweight, rugged assembly. This powerful production tool provides up to four audio channels in a tiny package specifically engineered for portable mixing bag use.
The Quadpackâ€™s front panel is designed to accept the standard SRa or the SRa5P variant that provides audio outputs on the front panel of the receiver for cameras that only have one audio input in the slot. The left side of the unit provides four full-size XLR outputs while the right side provides four TA3M mini XLRs. The multiple audio outputs can be used for a redundant feed to a recorder in addition to the main outputs that would typically feed wireless transmitters in a bag system, or a mixer on a sound cart. Receivers can be installed in either of the two slots via the SRUNI Unislot adapter.
The Quadpackâ€™s housing is constructed entirely of aluminum with a durable powder-coat finish. Power is via external DC from 7 to 18 V through the LZR locking connector or via a 4-pin Hirose connector located on the systemâ€™s right side. Three versions will be available: a â€œlowâ€? version covering blocks 470 up to 26, a â€œmidâ€? version covering blocks 21-29, and a â€œhighâ€? version covering blocks 25-33.
Karl Winkler, Lectrosonicsâ€™ Director of Business Development, commented on the companyâ€™s new Quadpack, â€œInput from retailers, field mixers, ENG audio operators, and reality TV crews asking us for an even smaller package than our well known Octopack led to the development of the Quadpack. This is a product that represents the most compact and portable example of four high-quality wireless receivers available anywhere.â€?
Pricing and delivery of the new Lectrosonics Quadpack is TBA.
