Alteros has added two new handheld transmitters – the GTX24-HHP (performer handheld) and GTX24-HHB (broadcast handheld) – and a remote and network control platform to its GTX Series of Local Area Wireless mic Network (Lawn) Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system.

The GTX Series Lawn UWB system is a professional broadcast/live performance solution that offers immunity to radio frequency spectrum regulatory changes, bandwidth loss and channel crowding. The system provides fully digital, 6.5GHz interference-free performance in settings. It can be se to without the need for frequency coordination, database registration, licences, or complicated support equipment.

Fitting into modern workflows, it supports unlimited repeat deployment (studio-to-studio and location-to-location) of 24 simultaneous, high-quality, low-latency (< 3ms), uncompanded 48kHz, 24-bit audio channels in any indoor or outdoor broadcast or performance environment in a system that is easier to set up and operate than a computer wi-fi network.

The latest additions joining the GTX3224 control unit, GTX24 body-pack transmitter and GTX32 transceiver include the GTX24-HHP (performer handheld) and GTX24-HHB (broadcast handheld) microphone transmitters. The GTX24-HHP ‘performer’ version wireless handheld mic is intended for live performance applications and features a lightweight, comfortable design which accepts popular thread-on microphone capsules using a 1.25-inch/28 thread pitch, allowing the performer to select the preferred microphone sound and performance from a wide range of manufacturers, including the new selection of Audio-Technica capsules.

The GTX24-HHB ‘broadcaster’ version wireless handheld mic includes additional features such as a dedicated ‘flag mount’ section and incorporated talkback button. The GTX24-HHB also incorporates interchangeable microphone capsule mounts, allowing for maximum flexibility in sound and performance. Available this summer, the GTX24-HHP (performer) and GTX24-HHB (broadcast) handhelds will round out the system.

Also new is a network and control platform that makes it extremely simple to set up and operate this advanced professional wireless system. ‘Modern facilities and systems are taking advantage of IP-based networking technology to reduce operational costs, simplify workflows, ensure the ultimate in production quality and even simplify equipment setup and operation’ says Alteros President and CTO, Jackie Green.

‘The GTX Series Lawn gives users the power, the performance and the simplicity of modern workflows in a complete, intuitive high-performance package, along with the added benefits of operation outside of the increasingly crowded UHF spectrum, free from data-base registration, licensing and even RF coordination.’

To gain insight into the features and performance required for the quick and simple integration of the GTX Series Lawn into a facility or venue setup, the Alteros R&D team worked closely with key professionals in the live, touring and broadcast markets to identify their desired workflows, interfaces and functionality. The resulting Ethernet-based system allows setup, control, monitoring, naming, network and clock management in a sophisticated user interface that can be accessed directly or remotely on multiple device platforms. The system allows 24 channels of wireless microphone operation to be deployed and operated with nearly plug-and-play ease (more simple than hooking up a computer and wi-fi).
