Sound Devices has annuonced that it will host a live streaming session focusing on the company’s new multichannel, true diversity wireless receiver, the A20-Nexus, presented by director of product design Paul Isaacs and RF applications engineer Gary Trenda. The session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 7 (2023) beginning at 10 am U.S. Central time. (Register here.)
The session will include a demonstration of the A20-Nexus receiver’s capabilities, an overview of compatible accessories, plugins, and software followed by a moderated Q&A session. Isaacs and Trenda will discuss the A20-Nexus receiver’s 470 to 1525 MHz global tuning range via SpectraBand, NexLink long distance remote control of transmitters, integrated RTSA, and PoE and audio via Dante. They’ll also talk about the new 4-Channel Expansion Licenses that increases the A20-Nexus receiver’s eight receiver channels to 12 or 16.
The duo will also demonstrate a new feature that was just introduced with a recent firmware update, the AutoAssist function. AutoAssist automatically scans the current tuning band for clean frequencies and assigns them to multiple channels. The clean frequencies are then automatically pushed to NexLinked transmitters. “With AutoAssist, you can deploy multiple wireless transmitters from long distances in just seconds. It saves a lot of time,” says Isaacs.
Questions for the Q&A session can be submitted beforehand via online registration for or during the live stream via chat. Again, go here to register for the live session.
