The Saramonic Blink 500 TX is a compact and lightweight clip-on wireless microphone transmitter that delivers broadcast quality sound and is designed to work with the Blink 500 RX, RXDi, and RXUC portable dual-receivers. The Blink 500 TX has an excellent sounding built-in microphone and the entire device is small and light enough to clip directly to clothing, slide into a pocket, or discreetly set on a table or podium.
The built-in microphone is capable of capturing voices clearly and naturally, but it also operates as a traditional bodypack transmitter with the included SR-M1 omnidirectional clip-on lavalier microphone.
Even though there are very few controls to adjust, the Blink wireless system does a lot behind the scenes to ensure excellent performance. The Blink 500 operates on the 2.4GHz spectrum and automatically hops channels to avoid static noise and audio dropouts. Pairing it to a receiver is simple and all of the complicated aspects of using wireless microphones happen seamlessly in the background, letting you concentrate on storytelling.
The Blink 500 TX has easy-to-use gain buttons to raise or lower the levels, and an intelligent LED display shows you where it's set. Its internal lithium battery gets 5 hours of life from a charge and its USB-C charging port can be used to power or recharge the unit in the field with a portable USB battery pack. The 10-milliwatt power of the transmitter gives you an impressive range of 98 feet (30 meters) with obstacles, and 164 feet (50 meters) in open spaces.
Starting in 2017, the 617-652 MHz and 663-698 MHz frequencies are being transitioned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Users of wireless microphone devices that operate in any portion of those frequencies must cease operating on these frequencies no later than July 13, 2020. In addition, users of this device may be required to cease operations earlier than that date if their operations could cause harmful interference to a 600 MHz service licensee’s wireless operations on these frequencies. For more information, visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/wireless-microphones-guide or call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC).
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.
