Audio-Technica’s Alteros wireless microphone system offshoot is launching a new Ultra Wideband wireless mic system, the GTX series.
The GTX series operates in the license-free 6.5 GHz spectrum. It is planned to provide up to 24 channels of 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio. According to a release the system is designed to minimize interference. “The GTX Series operates far beyond the UHF and VHF television bands, requires no frequency coordination, license, database registration or STA, and does not cause interference or create intermodulation products. The system is ideal for studio-to-studio operation since it emits less intentional radiation than the typical PC and will not interfere with surrounding signals.”
It debuts with the GTX3224 control unit, GTX24 body-pack transmitter and GTX32 transceiver. The release adds, “The unit features MADI, Dante and AES67 digital outputs that are all available simultaneously and allow for seamless integration with IP-based infrastructures. A single-mode fiber output supports long-distance runs.”
A 7-inch front-panel touchscreen provides access to system settings, monitoring tools, performance reports and other controls. Up to 32 transceivers can be connected to the controller via Cat-5 cable. The controller has dual power supplies for redundancy and can be remotely operated.
