Raycom Unveils UK Launch Of The SSM

News Image
Microphones have become small to the point of being virtually invisible, however the associated wireless transmitter can still pose a concealment challenge.

RF specialists, Raycom, have announced the UK launch of the SSM from Lectrosonics, designed for sound engineers struggling with a tight space or demanding talent.

Despite its small size (55x35x15mm) – about the same dimensions as a box of matches – the SSM offers an extensive feature set and performance on par with all Lectrosonics models. Frequencies are selectable in 100 kHz or 25 kHz steps across a tuning range of 75Mhz; that is, around 3,000 available frequencies across three standard frequency blocks. The servo bias input accepts mic or line level signals with a wide range of gain adjustment in 1 dB steps.

Accurate LED indications on the keypad allow precise gain adjustments to be made for the maximum signal to noise ratio and minimum distortion. The limiter in the preamp can cleanly handle signal peaks over 30 dB above full modulation, allowing the input gain to be set high enough to achieve the maximum signal to noise ratio, yet provide protection against input overload.

Power is provided by a Lithium-ion rechargeable battery and a compatible dual charger is included in the box along with a choice of mounting clips. SSM is compatible with existing analog Lectrosonics camera slot receivers and the new wideband Venue 2 rack mounted product.

Orders can be placed on the Raycom website.
