AKG Acoustics: Wireless secure sound system makes debut26 August 2014
A license-free wireless system, offering uncompressed audio transmission, high RF performance and 128-bit AES standard encryption, is making its debut at IBC.
Harman’s AKG DMSTetrad digital wireless microphone system features an integrated 4-channel mixer, and an antenna front mount kit. With 24bit, 48kHz audio coding, it provides uncompressed studio-quality transmission and a linear frequency response, for high vocal and instrumental performances.
The DMSTetrad’s 128-bit AES standard encryption prevents tapping of the audio signal, which makes it attractive for high-security conferences.
The DMSTetrad system features the DSRTetrad Digital Stationary Receiver, the DPTTetrad Digital Pocket Transmitter and the DHTTetrad Digital Handheld Transmitter, available with AKG’s patented D5 acoustics or as DHTTetrad P5 with standard dynamic capsule.
Two sets are available, the DMSTetrad Vocal Set including the DHTTetrad P5 and the DMSTetrad Performer Set including the DPTTetrad together with a C111 L earhook microphone and the MKG L instrument cable.
AKG said the DMSTetrad can be quickly assembled and ready to use. The DSRTetrad receiver can work with up to four channels of audio in parallel, which can be mixed down directly to its balanced XLR sum output. The dynamic frequency selection ensures that only the cleanest frequency bands are selected for the connection between receivers and transmitters automatically.
