USA - Lectrosonics has introduced the two newest members of the D Squared digital wireless family, the DPR digital plug-on transmitter and the DSQD/AES-3 receiver.
The next extension of the D Squared wireless family platform which premiered in 2019, the DPR digital plug-on transmitter is fully compatible with the DSQD digital receiver and features a tuning range of 470 to 608 MHz (470 to 614 MHz for the export version). The new transmitter includes specially developed, high efficiency circuitry for extended operating time on two AA batteries, and offers RF power selections at 25 and 50 mW.
Studio quality audio performance is assured by high quality components in the preamp, wide range input gain adjustment and DSP-controlled analogue limiting. Input gain is adjustable over a 55dB range in 1dB steps to allow an exact match to the input signal level, maximizing audio dynamic range and signal to noise ratio. The two-way IR port ensures quick setup and allows for encryption key transfer and other data sharing between units.
The DPR can be configured as either a transmitter or a recorder, with files stored on microSD card memory in the industry standard Broadcast Wave .wav (BWF) format at 24-bits, 48kHz sample rate.
The new DSQD/AES3 digital receiver is a four-channel, half-rack design with high-resolution colour display, analogue or AES digital outputs, and rear BNC antenna ports with ‘loop-thru’ buffered BNC outputs to another receiver. The new receiver is compatible with the latest Lectrosonics all-digital transmitters including the DPR plug-on unit, the DBu beltpack unit, the DHu handheld transmitter, the stereo DCHT, and the half-rack M2T
Both the DPR and the DSQD/AES3 support encryption in a 256-bit AES, CTR mode format for robust security, meeting FIPS 197 and 140-2 standards.
“These key new products further extend the D Squared digital wireless mic system family in an important way,” says Karl Winkler, VP of sales & marketing at Lectrosonics. “The plug-on transmitter has always been a cornerstone of our line, and having the outstanding audio performance of pure digital, along with on-board recording and time code jam sync, will make this unit an excellent choice for a wide range of applications including boom miking. Since many location sound mixers use the AES3 digital connections within their systems, the DSQD/AES3 is also a very natural fit.”
