Sound Devices has announced the A-15PIN, an adapter for the Audio Ltd. A10-RX slot-in receiver that is designed to enable compatibility with Sony’s proprietary slot for wireless receivers, marking the first time a non-Sony wireless system is able to natively slot into Sony cameras and pass two channel digital audio with no extra cables.
Many Sony camcorders feature Sony’s proprietary slot, which was exclusively compatible with Sony DWX/UWP wireless slot-in receivers. The A-15PIN 15pin D-type cradle extends compatibility to the A10 digital wireless system. An A10-RX is affixed to the A-15PIN and then screwed to the wireless slot on the Sony camcorder or extension unit.
“We’re very excited about the collaboration with Sony as it allows Audio Ltd A10-RX users to use their existing two channel digital receivers in Sony camcorder slots and extension units without the need for cumbersome external cables,” says Kishore Patel, VP of Sales at Sound Devices.
The A-15PIN is supported by new A10-RX v3.00 firmware, which can be downloaded here. The newest update to companion application Mic2Wav — version 3.00 — allows sound professionals to connect to their A10-RX in its A-15PIN via USB. This enables the transfer of User Group files and updating of the A10-RX. Go here to download Mic2Wav v3.00.
