DX2

DX2 true-diversity receiver

Versatile twin channel reliability

Two sets of paired receivers

If you are frequently faced with situations where you need to record two signals (a conversation between an individually miked presenter and an interviewee for example), the DX2 is the solution.
Like the DX receiver, it’s true diversity but, with two sets of paired receivers built in, it can handle the signal from two separate transmitters. The unit can be attached directly to a sound mixer but is also compact enough to fit discreetly onto a video camera. In addition, it can also be used as a stereo link to send the output from a mixer to a professional camera.
It’s this versatility combined with clear, uninterrupted sound that makes the DX2 the perfect choice for documentary makers, ENG applications and HD video productions.

What is 'true diversity'?

Some manufacturers offer ‘diversity receivers’ with two antennae connected to only a single receiver. Signal switching
takes place between the antennae (at rf level) which means there is often an audible ‘click’ on the recorded sound as
the signal being delivered to the receiver is momentarily interrupted during switching. With the true diversity DX,
that problem doesn’t happen since switching takes place between the two receivers at the audio frequency level with
no interruption of signal.

External powering

The DX2 receiver can be externally powered from 6 – 18V DC allowing it to be camera mounted or placed in the mixer bag and powered from a single external source.

Easy Setup

Easy setup menus

This unit is set up using a series of menus which are viewed in the OLED display. You are guided through the set up by a series of easy-to-read symbols and all parameters are selected using three buttons on the unit’s front panel. It’s so straightforward you won’t need any further written instructions from us.

OLED

OLED menu driven displays

This unit has an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display which is extremely clear yet consumes very little power. The screen shows all the important information you need to monitor the system when in use and also displays the En2’s unique easy set-up menu.

Frequency

Frequency scan function

In an increasingly crowded environment, you need to be able to select usable frequencies on location quickly. So, all receivers in the En2 range have a built-in scan facility which allows you to scan for a free channel or scan for the transmitter. In addition, on this unit, selecting ‘tune’ mode brings up a spectrum analyser type display which allows you to see the RF in the local environment.
