New Dual Channel Wireless System


Audio-Technica, has introduced the 1800 Series Dual-Channel Camera-Mount UHF wireless systems. Designed for broadcasters and videographers requiring a system for the simultaneous operation of two microphones, A-T say that the new 1800 Series provides an extremely flexible, professional and easy-to-use portable wireless solution.
The 1800 Series provides UHF reception with up to 996 frequencies user-selectable in 25 kHz steps. The ATW-R1820 battery powered, diversity dual receiver, features two completely independent receiver channels in a single unit. Ergonomically designed, this compact and rugged dual receiver easily mounts on a camera. Two balanced outputs enable signals to be mixed, or independently assigned. Independent audio level controls provide flexible audio mixing and monitoring options. Audio-Technica’s automatic frequency scanning feature searches for and selects the best available frequency in the RF spectrum, avoiding interference and intermodulation problems.
The 1800 Series comes equipped with a choice of body-pack and plug-on transmitters. The ATW-T1801 UniPak body-pack transmitter features a professional locking 4-pin connector, compatible with all Audio-Technica Wireless Essentials microphones. The ATW-T1802 plug-on transmitter features a locking XLR connector for adapting wired dynamic and condenser microphones to wireless operation. Both transmitters are powered by two AA batteries and offer selectable high (30 mW) and low (10 mW) transmission modes, to conserve battery life or maximize RF power output.
Additional 1800 Series features include True Diversity operation, Tone Lock squelch, back-lit LCD, soft-touch buttons, headphone monitor output with independent level control, and durable metal construction. Finally, system components of the 1800 Series and 3000 Series Wireless Systems can be used interchangeably, depending on frequency selection.
