New silicone covers to protect a wide variety of Lectrosonics’ transmitters, receivers and recorders have been unveiled. They include the DCHT digital camera hop, DPR, DPR-A digital plug on and LT transmitters, as well as the DCHR digital portable, IFBR1B multi-frequency IFB and M2R IEM/IFB receivers. New silicone covers are also available for the MTCR miniature time code and PDR portable digital recorders.
All the covers are available in clear silicone, but some are also available in black (to make them less visible on camera), including the DPR, DPR-A and HM/HMa. These tough covers are designed to protect Lectrosonics’ units from moisture and dust, and the two-part overlapping design makes them pliable enough for easy installation and removal. Each cover features die-cut holes for antennas and input jacks which suit the individual model.

Also new are Lectrosonics’ latest DBSM single battery and DBSMB dual battery bodypack transmitters, an update of its SM Series of miniature transmitters that brings these body-worn units into the digital era.
They are fully compatible with the DSQD digital receiver, DCHR digital portable receiver, and DCR822 compact dual channel digital receiver and feature a tuning range covering both the A1 and B1 bands from 470 to 608MHz (470 to 614MHz for E01 international versions). The new transmitters include specially developed, high efficiency circuitry for extended operating time on AA batteries, and offer RF power selections at 10, 25 and 50mW.
A new, selectable high-density transmission mode (HDM) allows for much tighter channel spacing, yielding more than double the operating frequencies per available spectrum. Firmware updates for the DSQD, DCHR, and DCR822 receivers, and updates for the Mac and PC versions of Wireless Designer software, make use of this new high-density mode.
