News: Switronix is pleased to announce three new products at NAB 2013 Booth Central Hall C11728!
Switronix New Product Releases Recon Micro
(Westbury, New York--April 8, 2013) The Recon Micro is the newest edition to our Recon Wireless line. Check out our new products in the Central Hall at Booth number C11728.
An all SDI Wireless Monitoring Transmitter and Receiver system, the Recon Micro can transmit high-quality, encrypted HD video to any field monitor with a latency of less than 1 millisecond, making it ideal for real-time viewing. The transmitter includes one 3G-SDI input and a loop-through output, while the receiver features two 3G-SDI outputs for dual monitoring.
The scaled-down design of the Micro exceeds all others on the market. Designed from the ground up for wireless transmitting HD from any camera to field monitors, the transmission is uncompressed and encrypted for safety. Furthermore, in case of interference with another RF system, its 5.1GHz~5.9GHz will automatically adjust frequencies.
The new “Broadcast Mode” feature allows you to hook up multiple receivers. The director, producer and even film crew can see real-time shooting from the camera. Additional receivers will be sold separately and each transmitter can support up to 5 receivers.
The Recon Micro features a double-walled, compact ABS housing with ¼-20 mounts on back and bottom. A Powertap to 4-pin Lemo cable is included for easy powering.
The Recon Micro will be available for purchase from any Switronix authorized dealer in May.
