EV launches R300 wireless mic system

AUTHOR: Inavate

Electro-Voice is targeting the entry-level professional market with the R300 wireless microphone system.

The company has included features such as One-Touch ClearScan and Ezsync. It has a rack-mountable metal receiver, metal bodypack and handheld transmitters, and remote-mountable antennas.

The R300 receiver system is equally suitable for table tops or a 19-inch equipment rack. It has simple controls and an easy-to-read. Rack-mount kits and front-mount antenna cables are available for professional installation. For applications with up to four receivers in one rack, the APD4+ antenna splitter can provide antenna and power feeds.

The BP-300 metal bodypack transmitter uses two AA batteries for 14 hours of use. The unit’s mute function keeps the RF signal live while muting the audio, to protect the channel and prevent noise in the audio system. Two preconfigured bodypack systems are available, with either a lapel or a headworn microphone. The bodypack’s TA4 connector allows the unit to be used with other Electro-Voice lapel or headworn microphones.

The HT-300 metal handheld transmitter has a PL22 dynamic microphone capsule with a cardioid pickup pattern.

Electro-Voice’s ClearScan system scans through the R300’s 32 preset channels and selects the clearest channel.

EZsync uses infrared technology to set the transmitter to the correct frequency, confirming operation in an automatic step.
