The Lectrosonics SRb5P receiver offers two independent channels and fit into the standard video camera slots found on slot-equipped professional cameras by using the appropriate optional mounting kits. The two audio channels can feed separate inputs or can be mixed internally to feed a single input.
The Lectrosonics SRb5P includes a receiver front end with a more robust RF amplifier stage and tighter IF (intermediate frequency) filtering. The results are significant performance enhancements over previous designs including better immunity to adjacent channel interference and increased sensitivity. Operating range is enhanced and greater multi-channel operation is now possible with fewer dropouts.
A talkback feature is also included in the Lectrosonics SRb5P to work in conjunction with the HH handheld microphone transmitter. With the talkback feature engaged, one audio output is used for the standard signal feed. When the talkback button is pressed on the HH transmitter, the audio is routed to the second receiver output, which thus can be sent to an IFB (interruptible fold-back) system, a com desk, or anywhere else the user requires.
The two independent Digital Hybrid Wireless receivers inside the Lectrosonics SRb5P Dual-Channel Slot-Mount ENG Receiver offers 256 frequencies each in a wide variety of available frequency blocks, and operate with any of the Lectrosonics’ 400 Series transmitters without a compandor in the audio path. In addition, compatibility modes also facilitate operation with Lectrosonics’ 100 Series, 200 Series, and IFB analog systems, along with analog transmitters from two other manufacturers. Transmitter battery strength is monitored in the new receivers when using compatibility modes for 200 and 400 Series transmitters.
