Reprinted from a Azden press release:
Establishing a new low price-point for on-camera UHF, Azden Corporation, the leader in wireless for videography, is introducing its’ new 100LT system. Unlike the entry-level models of its competitors, which have 1, 2, 10 or 16 channels, the 100LT system offers 63 user-selectable channels in the 794-806MHz band. Both the new receiver and body-pack transmitter are housed in small, 3 7/8″ x 2 3/8″ x 13/16″, cases — ideal for smaller digital cameras.
The new 100UPR receiver features twin-antennas, a 3.5mm -58dB balanced mic level output jack, a 3.5mm monitor output jack (with level control), a recessed On/Off switch, a Power On/Signal Received LED and a channel selectors to set the desired frequency. Using crystal-controlled PLL synthesis, the 100UPR operates for better than 8 hours on a single 9V battery. The receiver also comes with a hot-shoe mounting sleeve, mounting Velcro and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm output cable (Azden’s MX-1 3.5mm-to-XLR cable is optional).
The new 10BT body-pack transmitter is supplied with an Azden EX-503 omni-directional lapel microphone and a metal belt-clip. In addition to the 3.5mm mic input jack, the transmitter has a Power On switch with an associated LED, a separate Standby switch for audio muting and a set of channel selector switches. It also runs better than 8 hours on a single 9V battery.
The 100LT system will be available starting in July and has an MSRP of $449.95.
