Digital wireless microphone system launched10 February 2015
The DMSTetrad digital wireless microphone system is being introduced at ISE 2015 by Harman’s AKG. Said to be ideal for a variety of applications ranging from concerts and clubs, to conferences, the licence-free wireless system is claimed to offer uncompressed audio transmission, superior RF performance and 128-bit AES standard encryption.
The AKG DMSTetrad digital wireless microphone system features an integrated 4-channel mixer, and an antenna front mount kit. With 24-bit, 48kHz audio coding, it provides uncompressed studio-quality transmission and a linear frequency response. The DMSTetrad’s 128-bit AES standard encryption prevents tapping of the audio signal, which AKG says makes it a perfect companion for high-security conferences.
The entire DMSTetrad system features the DSRTetrad Digital Stationary Receiver, the DPTTetrad Digital Pocket Transmitter and the DHTTetrad Digital Handheld Transmitter, available with AKG’s 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.
The DMSTetrad can, says AKG, 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 (DFS) ensures that only the cleanest frequency bands are selected for the connection between receivers and transmitters automatically.
