The Sound Devices booth at NAB (C4611) will feature several configurations of the new A20-Nexus multichannel, true diversity wireless receiver, to show its versatility.
The A20-Nexus offers a 470-1525 MHz global tuning range through SpectraBand, long-distance remote control of transmitters via Sound Devices’ proprietary NexLink protocol, integrated RTSA (real-time spectrum analysis), and Power-over-Ethernet and audio via Dante – all in a half-rack unit. Its eight receiver channels can be expanded to 12 or 16 channels with no extra hardware required, by purchasing or renting an A20-Nexus 4-Channel Expansion License.
To show the full strength of the A20-Nexus receiver, on Monday, April 17th, at 5:00pm, Sound Devices will have a pair of A20-Nexus receivers set up outdoors for hands-on demos. Guests are welcome to the Blue Lot, outside the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall, to see how well the A20-Nexus performs in a challenging RF (radio frequency) environment. The Sound Devices team will be on hand to answer any questions.
Back in its NAB booth, Sound Devices will also demo its 8-Series line, which includes Scorpio, 888, and 833 mixer-recorders. Designed specifically for sound professionals’ workflow, each 8-Series mixer-recorder has unprecedented recording power and a rugged, efficient interface.
Also on display will be MixPre II Series audio mixers, suited for field audio, sound effects, film audio, or live music. With crystal-clear, ultra-low-noise Kashmir preamps, MixPre II mixers allow multiple voices or audio for video to be recorded with superior quality – all the way up to a 32-bit float bit depth and a 192 kHz sample rate.
