Lectrosonics has unveiled their new sister brand IFBlue - affordable yet powerful wireless IFB (interruptible fold back) for broadcast, film, and ENG. There are two new products: receiver IFBlue IFBR1C and a battery charging station CHSIFBR1C. Receiver IFBlue IFBR1C works with Lectrosonics digital hybrid units in IFB mode.
The IFBlue receiver provides simplicity and flexibility in a tough package that is intuitive for untrained users to operate. In spite of its small size, the receiver pack offers excellent performance and convenience. The dock charging feature and supplied rechargeable batteries make daily use a snap, while 10 programmable preset frequencies give you excellent flexibility on set or in the studio.
The receiver operates on AA batteries that will provide more than 12 hours of operation. The LED indicator changes color from green to red as the battery voltage declines to provide plenty of warning before operation ceases.
Inside the battery door is a USB port for firmware updates in the field. The IFBR1C is housed in a durable, injection molded package. An attached belt clip is included and provides a secure mounting on a wide variety of belts, pockets and fabrics.
The IFBlue receiver pack is offered in different frequency ranges to match existing T4 transmitters: A1 (470-537 MHz), B1 (537-614 MHz) and C1 (614-692 MHz). Transmitters available from Lectrosonics include the IFBT4, IFBT4-VHF, or any Digital Hybrid Wireless transmitter in IFB compatibility mode.
In addition to receiver IFBR1C, Lectrosonics unveiled battery charging station IFBlue CHSIFBR1C. It can charge up to four IFBR1C (with NiMH rechargeable batteries) at once. Includes DCR5/9AU power supply and AC cord.
The receiver will drive a wide variety of earbuds, and headphones at substantial levels, with loads from 16 Ohms to 600 Ohms.
Wireless IFB (interruptible fold back) systems are used for talent cueing and crew communications in broadcast and motion picture production. In other cases, the IFB system is used by directors and other management to monitor program audio during a production. The IFBR1C receiver provides simplicity and flexibility in a package that is intuitive for untrained users to operate. In spite of its tiny size, the new IFBR1C receiver offers excellent performance.
