Maxx fully loaded is the basic model four input/ 2-channel recorder loaded with the following options:
The Maxx is a powerful new tool for your sound bag. It’s an audio mixer, recorder, 2-Channel wireless transmitter, timecode reader/generator and visual timecode slate – all in one small package.
Audio MixerMaxx has four full size XLR analog mic/line level inputs with 48 V Phantom power that incorporate the Zaxcom Nomad’s microphone preamps with NeverClip™ (patent pending). NeverClip™ prevents input clipping by using two A-D converters for each input channel providing enhanced dynamic range allowing an input to exceed 0 dB full scale by 20 dB.
The four input channels can be mixed to a two-channel output bus over two sets of output connectors that can be individually conﬁgured as line, mic and consumer output levels. There is also a two-channel balanced monitor return and Mono & Tape outputs.
The mixer will run at all broadcast sample rates up to 192 KHz. Each input channel has a high pass ﬁlter, two variable notch ﬁlters, variable delay, and a soft knee compressor.
An AES input provides you with four sample rate converting inputs (2 x AES/AES42 pair). When present, the Maxx can mix eight inputs onto the stereo output buss.
Maxx output drivers are actively controlled. This maintains the maximum dynamic range at both mic and line level output. The Maxx headphone output is guaranteed to have the same dynamic range as the output. This ensures the camera audio quality is always consistent with what you’re hearing in the Maxx headphone monitor.
RecorderMaxx comes standard with the ability to record the two-channel mix output on a CompactFlash or SD card (with CF adapter). Files can be recorded at up to 24 bit / 192 KHz with a dynamic range of 137 dB.
There is also a six channel recording option giving you the ability to record four pre-fader ISO tracks along with the two-channel mix.
Built-in RF Transmitter The Zaxcom digital wireless stereo transmitter is included with the Maxx Fully Loaded This single RF signal carries two channels of audio and SMTPE timecode to any Zaxcom ENG style receiver, to receive and output timecode you’ll need a QRX100 with the QIFB option.
The Maxx’s built-in RF transmitter is designed to be used as a wireless camera link, this eliminates the possibility of level mismatch and audio distortion common to unbalanced connections between separate mixer and RF transmitter combinations. All audio is converted to the digital domain by the Maxx’s A-D converter with a dynamic range of 137 dB. When using the Zaxcom QRX100 the audio remains digital throughout the entire path to the camera input providing audio quality only a hard wired solution could match.
The RF signal is frequency block dependant, RF power output is 100 mW. A 24 MHz wide RF band pass filter eliminates interference to receivers in the sound bag. The filter takes the place of a Zaxcom FDP1 filter antenna.
Some versions of this wireless microphone device may operate in portions of the 617-652 MHz or 663-698 MHz frequencies. Beginning in 2017, these frequencies are being transitioned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the 600 MHz service to meet increasing demand for wireless broadband services. Users of this device 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.
