    Note that the suggested BlackMagic gadget appears to be the OPPOSITE of what @egproductions is asking for. The suggested gadget is used to INSERT audio into SDI video.

    Remember that the Juicedlink DAR124RX01 provides "plug-in power" of ~5V and the COS11 is wired to expect that voltage.

    If you use a "straight through" 3.5mm to XLR adapter (like a Rode VXLR) you...

    The concept of simply putting a backup recording function inside the wireless transmitter is neither "remote control" nor "multi-track". So it is not clear how that violates any of their patents. ...

    IMHO, Zaxcom have put themselves in the same category as Vitec and Monster. They have devolved from technology companies into marketing and predatory litigious organizations with likely more lawyers...

    In the USA, one company has a patent on the technology and thus a monopoly on the market.

    What are the chances that it has an analog audio path good enough to actually support 24bit dynamic range? (144dB!)

    How do I tell what bit rate of audio my canon xa20 films at?
    You seem to be confusing RATE with DEPTH (or width).
    The standard RATE for audio for video is 48KHz You can assume 48KHz sampling rate...

    I once had a "semi-automatic" turntable with an optical sensor on the head. You could directly select which track to play and it would find the track optically. Actually rather more direct than the...

    Wow, the DVXuser website munged that URL into a gigantic pile of rubbish.

    I have seen lots of variable-density sound tracks. But I have never seen a variable-area track either unilateral or bilateral.

    They rather nicely evolved from recording optical tracks on...

    Part of it was the stage-acting delivery style, including the slightly-British accent of the "upper crust". But I suspect most of it was the old sound-stage, set construction, and requirement for...

    The only reason for shielding a DC power cable like that would be if the source was a noisy switch-mode power-supply (SMPS).

    I am "only" 5 years behind you, but I agree that the basic "sonic qualities" are not very obvious. As the technology making mass-production small electret (and MEMS) mic capsules improves, there is...

    Some photos of "lavaliere microphones" from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
    Apparently colloquially also called "neck mics" (to differentiate from "clip-on"?)

    I have seen several people use those Eartec wireless kits. They seemed to work reasonably well. I expect that kind of system cannot be expanded beyond four stations. But if you will never need more...

    Please provide an authoritative source for this claim. It does not sound correct as stated.


    This has a virtually zero chance of success. Many (most?, all?) brands of wireless kits use...

    Well, we took your word for it that it was "distortion". Bit since we never heard a sample, perhaps you are right that it is not distortion at all. Your clues are sufficiently diverse that we can...
