Lectrosonics Shows New Quadpack Dock

Lectrosonics is rolling out its new Quadpack Receiver Dock, which facilitates installation of two SRa Series Dual Channel Digital Hybrid Wireless compact receivers on the same or different frequency blocks, and provides up to four audio channels in a small package specifically designed for portable mixing bag use.

Lectrosonics is rolling out its new Quadpack Receiver Dock to address what company officials perceive as an increasing demand for compact, multiple wireless receivers in location and ENG production. The Quadpack facilitates installation of two SRa Series Dual Channel Digital Hybrid Wireless compact receivers on the same or different frequency blocks, and provides up to four audio channels in a small package specifically designed for portable mixing bag use.

The front panel of the Quadpack accepts the standard SRa or the SRa5P variant that provides audio outputs on the front panel of the receiver for cameras that have one audio input in the slot. The left side of the unit provides four full-size XLR outputs, while the right side provides four TA3M mini XLRs. According to the company, the multiple audio outputs can be used for a redundant feed to a recorder in addition to the main outputs that would typically feed wireless transmitters in a bag system or a mixer on a sound cart. Receivers can be installed in either of the two slots via the SRUNI Unislot adapter.

The Quadpack's housing is made entirely of aluminum with a durable powder-coat finish. Power comes via four-pin Hirose connector on the system's right side. The company plans to release three versions: a low version covering blocks 470 up to 26, a mid version covering blocks 21-29, and a high version covering blocks 25-33.

"Input from retailers, field mixers, ENG audio operators, and reality TV crews asking us for an even smaller package than our Octopack led to the development of the Quadpack," said Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics' director of business development, in a statement. "This is a product that represents the most compact and portable example of four high-quality wireless receivers available."
