Lectrosonics Expands L Series Mics

News Image
Lectrosonics has added three new products to the company’s L Series 'Large Bandwidth' line of wireless microphones. The new L Series units all share a tuning range of three standard Lectrosonics blocks, or 67.5 to 76.8 MHz, depending on the specific frequency band, and employ Lectrosonics' patented Digital Hybrid Wireless technology for compandor-free audio along with compatibility modes for interoperability with older analog systems.

The new L Series product group consists of the LMb and LT beltpack transmitters, and the LR miniature receiver.
The LMb is the latest successor in Lectrosonics’ line of economical beltpack transmitters. It features an all-metal housing, wire belt clip, 50 mW of RF power, 25 or 100 kHz tuning steps (yielding up to 3,072 selectable frequencies) and an integrated multi-function switch with menu-selectable modes for power, mute or talkback. A graphic LCD and membrane switch panel plus IR synch port make setup and operation a snap. Power is provided via two AA batteries.
The LT transmitter features 25 or 100 kHz tuning steps (yielding up to 3,072 selectable frequencies), an integrated multi-function switch with menu-selectable modes for power, mute or talkback and a graphic LCD and membrane switch panel, plus IR synch port.
The LT additionally facilitates user-selectable RF transmission power of 50 or 100 mW. A detachable antenna allows for remote mount antennas. The LT responds to remote commands from either dedicated Lectrosonics RM remote unit or smartphone apps with this capability.
It is housed in a newly designed machined aluminum housing featuring a super-hard EbNi Ebony conductive finish. Power is provided via two AA batteries.
The LR receiver is designed to be portable for use with DSLR, 4/3, small 4K and other compact HD cameras. A wide tuning bandwidth with tracking front-end filters provides flexibility while avoiding the vulnerabilities of wider pass bands. Tuning steps are user selectable at 25 or 100 kHz, yielding up to 3,072 operating frequencies. Compatibility modes enable the LR to operate with older analog transmitters. Dual antenna diversity improves range and resistance to dropouts.
The RF spectrum analyzer and Lectrosonics’ SmartTune capability locates clean frequencies on site. A large, backlit LCD provides information for setup and status monitoring while operational. Detachable antennas allow for remote antenna mounting. The LT is housed in the latest machined aluminum shell with super-hard EbNi ‘Ebony’ conductive finish. The unit is powered with two AA batteries.
All three L Series units are available in four different frequency ranges for worldwide use: A1 (470.100 - 537.575 MHz), B1 (537.600 - 614.375 MHz), C1 (614.400 - 691.175 MHz) and D1 (691.200 - 767.975 MHz). Overall system audio specifications are as follows: digital conversion: 24 bit/88.2 kHz sampling rate. Frequency response: 40 to 20 kHz +/- 1 dB, THD+N = 0.3 % in Digital Hybrid mode, > 95 dB s/n ratio. Audio output levels are adjustable from - 50 to +5 dBu in 1dB steps.
Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics’ Director of Business Development, said: "These new wireless mic products fill a growing need for frequency flexibility in the face of ever more crowded and shrinking RF spectrum. We've taken our hard-won experience in making robust, reliable and user-friendly wireless microphones along with plenty of user input and distilled this knowledge into these three products. The super-small LR in particular should be of interest to the growing population of digital filmmakers using smaller and smaller cameras."
