The QT-5100 RefMic HD is a compact transmitter designed for umpires, referees, or anyone who needs mute switch control over their wireless signal. It's contained in a flexible water-resistant case with an internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery and heavy duty 1-pin Lemo connector. It works with Q5X’s line of wireless receivers, as well as Lectrosonics UCR and SRC receivers and offers approximately 3,000 individual channels tunable in 25 kHz steps.
What sets this transmitter apart from the standard QT-5100 RefMic is the re-designed microphone connector. With a side-exit orientation, the lavalier is firmly secured in its connection and can't be accidentally removed by the wearer. Similarly, this transmitter is designed with high-impact situations, like football or hockey games, in mind. If a referee were to get hit as a player went out of bounds, or struck by an errant slap shot, the RefMic HD is strong enough to withstand the impact, and keep the mic connection protected.
Situated on the bottom of the RefMic is a large, non-popping mute switch. With one flick, the wearer can mute or unmute their signal without causing any audible pop. This makes the QT-5100 RefMic HD ideal for a variety of sports officials or corporate presenters who need to control when they can be heard while also having top-notch audio quality.
The size and weight of the RefMic makes it great for extended wear. Weighing two ounces and only a 1/3 of an inch thick, it can be stored almost anywhere and your talent will barely notice it's there. For high activity talent like athletes, the RefMic comes housed in a rubberized, flexible case that protects the transmitter from shock, impact, and water.
The QT-5100 RefMic HD utilizes the RCAS™ (Remote Control Audio System) to allow an audio tech or engineer to control transmitter settings from a central computer or hand-held remote control. They're ideal for situations where you need many transmitters across a wide area and cannot be hands-on with each transmitter, such as a large sporting event or a live theater show.
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.
