Audio-Technica has released the System 10 Camera-Mount Digital Wireless System. This new digital wireless system designed to provide quality performance along with easy setup. Featuring a compact design, the system is available in handheld, lavalier and body-pack configurations. Operating in the 2.4 GHz range, this system offers easy operation and quick channel selection. Audio-Technica claims up to eight channels may be used together without any frequency coordination problems or group selection issues.
System 10 wireless systems ensure clear communications by providing three levels of diversity assurance: frequency, time, and space. Frequency Diversity sends the signal on two dynamically allocated frequencies for interference-free communication. Time Diversity sends the signal in multiple time slots to maximize immunity to multi-path interference. Finally, Space Diversity uses two antennas on each transmitter and receiver to maximize signal integrity.
