USA - Lectrosonics has announced the introduction of the DCR822 digital, dual-channel portable receiver. The new receiver is compatible with all the current Lectrosonics mono and stereo digital transmitters and is backward compatible with any of the Digital Hybrid Wireless transmitters made in the past 18 years.
The DCR822 provides two independent receiver channels at the highest level of RF and audio performance available with a versatile feature set in a compact design for field and location production.
The DCR822 tunes across 144 MHz (A1B1 version) or 155 MHz (B1C1 version) and offers over 6000 frequency choices. Settings can be made from the front panel with tactile buttons and high-resolution LCD interface, making the unit ideal for use in portable bag systems and on sound carts.
An RF spectrum analyser and SmartTune are built into the receiver to alleviate interference problems in an increasingly congested RF spectrum. 2-way IR sync makes quick work of setting up matching transmitters. The new receiver includes a USB jack on the back panel for connectivity with the Lectrosonics Wireless Designer software for frequency coordination and RF system monitoring.
The mechanical design of the receiver fits into the same dimensions as the legacy UCR411A so that existing mounts can be used.
In addition to the data transfer capability via the microSD card slot, The DCR822 can record audio channels directly from the receivers onto the card in the industry standard .wav (BWF) file format at 24 bits/48 kHz for compatibility with any audio or video editing software.
“The DCR822 represents the state of the art in portable receiver performance,” says Karl Winkler, vice president of sales & marketing at Lectrosonics. “The UCR411a has long been revered as the top choice of receiver for tough jobs in difficult RF environments. We knew we had to make something that was able to top this performance, yet bring in a host of modern features and design. That’s what the DCR822 is all about. I’m very proud of the design team’s accomplishments with this product.”
