Zaxcom Receives U.S. Patent for Wireless Recording Technology

  • Zaxcom has received a U.S. patent for the company's virtual wireless multitrack recording systems.
  • "Our TRX family of digital recording wireless systems provides television and film production teams with the unique ability to automatically and simultaneously record multiple tracks of digital audio while wirelessly transmitting the signals. The ability to perform all these functions in a single, compact, reliable system lessens equipment weight and cost while also safeguarding against the risk of lost audio," said Glenn Sanders, Zaxcom's president. "We're excited that this system has been recognized by the U.S. Patent Office as a significant and unique technology."
  • Awarded by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Patent Number 7,711,443 covers the entire Zaxcom TRX family of digital wireless systems with built-in backup recording.

All technologies in Zaxcom's popular TRX product line feature 100 percent digital transmission for audio quality that rivals a hard-wired system, and are superior to all analog and hybrid wireless units. With the optional patented internal timecode-referenced audio recorder, each TRX system backs up all wireless transmissions on a removable microSD card to eliminate the possibility of audio loss due to interference or signal dropout. A wide feature set is available, including support for reception of IFB audio, timecode, and remote control signals.
