- USB and RS-232 computer interface
The VR’s design offers a tremendous degree of flexibility. For example, each
of the three pairs of receivers can be combined and used for ratio diversity or
frequency diversity reception. Each individual receiver can be used by itself
for phase switched diversity reception. Combinations of reception techniques can
be used at the same time.
The compatibility modes are also independent between the receivers, so some
channels can be used in the native hybrid mode while others might operate with
in and analog mode to work with other transmitters.
DSP Compatibility Modes
While the Venue Receiver sounds best when used in the Digital Hybrid Wireless™
mode, it also offers backward compatibility with earlier technologies, including
the Lectrosonics 100 and 200 Series and another brand of wireless transmitters.
The VR also ensures exact time alignment of the audio outputs in the event that
digital and analog transmitters are used simultaneously. The compatibility mode
is selected with the LCD interface or computer software.
Controls and Monitoring
Setup options and adjutments can be made via the front panel LCD interface, or
with an attached computer. USB and RS-232 ports are available on the rear panel.
The LCD interface consists of six channel select switches, two selection and
navigation switches and a pushbutton rotary encoder control. A computer, or
touch screen control system, can be connected for setup or continuous system
monitoring via either the USB or serial port.
50 Ohm BNC multicoupler output jacks provide zerogain antenna
“loop-throughs” for an additional receiver, allowing convenient expansion
without the need for an external RF multi-coupler.
Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system.
Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to
certain restrictions: The system may not cause harmful interference; it must
operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no
protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should
also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone
systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the
FCC at 1–888–CALL–FCC (TTY: 1–888–TELL–FCC) or
visit the FCC's wireless
microphone Web site.
If you're a licensed Part 74 operator, you may continue to use 50mW and greater
wireless systems under certain conditions. Eligible parties include a person or
organization engaged in the production or filming of motion pictures or
television, so, to the best of our knowledge, this includes below the line
