Zaxcom has announced that it has received a U.S. patent for the company’s virtual wireless multitrack recording systems.
Awarded by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the patent covers the entire Zaxcom TRX family of digital wireless systems with built-in backup recording.
“Our TRX family of digital recording wireless systems provides television and film production teams with the unique ability to automatically and simultaneously record multiple tracks of digital audio while wirelessly transmitting the signals,” said Glenn Sanders, Zaxcom’s president.
“The ability to perform all these functions in a single, compact, reliable system lessens equipment weight and cost while also safeguarding against the risk of lost audio.”
“We’re excited that this system has been recognized by the U.S. Patent Office as a significant and unique technology.”
All units in Zaxcom’s TRX product line feature 100 percent digital transmission for audio quality that rivals a hard-wired system.
With the optional patented internal timecode-referenced audio recorder, each TRX system backs up all wireless transmissions on a removable microSD card to eliminate the possibility of audio loss due to interference or signal dropout.
A wide feature set is available, including support for reception of IFB audio, timecode, and remote control signals.
