Comrex Plans Wireless Module at NAB

Comrex says the wireless module for its Matrix codec will be introduced at the spring NAB show.
The module lets a user send remote audio over a wireless network without needing a phone line or a separate wireless phone. Comrex said updated firmware provides up to 7 kHz response.
The module incorporates a GSM wireless phone and firmware in a compact housing, and is compatible with portable Matrix units. It adds an external antenna and more power than standard handheld phones, the company says. An optional Battery Kit lets the Matrix broadcast in the field for up to seven hours.
"We still advocate getting a phone line if you can, but finally we have a tool that gives decent audio in the absence of a line," a company spokeswoman said.
