Lectrosonics introduces the new DBu-LEMO bodypack transmitter as part of the D Squared product series. The DBu-LEMO is fully compatible with the DSQD digital receiver and features a tuning range of 470MHz to 608MHz (614MHz for export version). The new transmitter includes specially developed, high efficiency circuitry for extended operating time on two AA batteries, and offers RF power selections at 10mW, 25mW, and 50mW. (roughly equivalent in operating range to 25mW, 60mW, and 120mW in an FM transmitter). With an audio frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz +0.0, - 3dB, a DBu-LEMO’s dynamic range features of 110dB before limiting.
The pure digital architecture enables encryption for high level security applications. Studio quality audio performance is assured by high quality components in the preamp, wide range input gain adjustment, and DSP-controlled analog limiting. Input gain is adjustable over a 52dB range in 1dB steps to allow an exact match to the input signal level, maximizing audio dynamic range and signal to noise ratio. The two-way IR port ensures quick setup and allows for encryption key transfer and other data sharing between units.
A multi-function switch on top of the transmitter can be configured as power on/off, mute, talkback, or bypassed altogether. A micro USB jack on the unit can be used to update the unit's firmware in the field using Wireless Designer software running on a Mac or PC.
The durable, machined aluminum housing is the same size and shape as the previous generation DBa and DBu units so that standard accessories are useable with the new unit, including the belt clips. The 00 Lemo three-pin connector and input wiring is also the same as on the SSM micro transmitter, allowing the use of existing lavaliere microphones cable and audio adapter accessories.
"The DBu-LEMO is a very important addition to the D Squared digital wireless system product line," says Karl Winkler, VP of sales and marketing at Lectrosonics, Inc. "Those looking for outstanding audio performance, the overall compactness and flexibility of the D Squared system, and the industry-standard Lemo connector for their existing stock of lav mics -- this should be a must-have item."
