For all cameras without receiver slot

The RX200 is a 200 MHz wide compact battery powered ENG receiver. It has a tunable tracking front end filter for receiving any frequency in any block from 20 through 27, or 512 – 698 MHz, while still filtering out unwanted RF.

RX200 can output AES digital audio or analog audio at -35dB mic level, -10dB consumer level, or 0dB line level on a single TA5 connector. It’s is also capable of receiving and outputting the embedded SMPTE time code on a BNC connector also on mic, line or consumer levels.

The RX200 / TRX900CL Camera Link combo is a great solution for sending two channels of 100% digital audio with embedded SMPTE timecode from bag to camera. Small and light-weight with Zaxcom’s patented side-mounted LED’s, the RX200 is easy to mount on any camera – from small format DSLR to a full size ENG rig. RX200 has an automatic tracking front end filter so you can receive on any frequency in any block from 20 through 27 (512-698MHz) with impressive range. The ultra compact unit isn’t only small, but powers itself on 4 internal AA batteries for up to 12 hours for use with any camera big or small

Digital Modulation
All of Zaxcom’s wireless microphone system uses only 100% digital modulation, this results in audio quality superior to any analog or digital hybrid FM wireless system.

Zaxcom transmits its audio as 1s and 0s in a 100% digital form so no companding is needed to alter the audio content; this results in a much higher quality reproduction of the original audio under all circumstances.

Conventional FM wireless systems, including standard companded FM and digital hybrid wireless, use analog FM modulation and contain no digital content. Noise reduction systems, pilot tone squelch, FM distortion and RF interference all contribute to system performance that cannot begin to match that of a pure 100% digital system like Zaxcom’s digital wireless.

The range of Zaxcom’s new digital wireless 2.0 is now equivalent to, or better than, that of any FM radio system.

Encrypted Audio
Traditional FM wireless audio can be hacked into and listened to by any commercially available scanner.  In some situations this isn’t an issue, but there are times where privacy is necessary. For example paparazzi with an inexpensive device can listen in on your set. Or in the case of some corporate settings where there may be sensitive or legal matters discussed and you want to ensure that you have maximum privacy.

Zaxcom wireless systems, both the UHF transmission as well as audio sent via ZaxNet, features full digital audio encryption. Digital encryption is the only way to keep all audio transmission private.

The way it works is if you set an encryption code the transmitter, the audio will be encrypted and can only be listened to if the receiver has the matching encryption code entered. If you are trying to receive an audio signal and the codes do not match, all that will be heard is white-noise or silence.

Zaxcom’s encryption system features two sets of three numbers that form a single six-digit encryption code; this provides a total of 16,777,216 possible code combinations. So when using Zaxcom digital encryption you can ensure that your audio will only be heard by those who you want to hear it.
