The RF Optix fiber optic remote antenna system has been nominated for a CAS Technical Achievement Award.
The Cinema Audio Society is a Los Angeles based trade organization for sound professionals in the film and television industry. Their members span both production and post production, and include production mixers, boom operators, foley, ADR, and post mixers.
RF Optix transmitter and receiver.
The RF Optix allows remote antenna runs of 1000 meters or more by converting RF into optical signal and transmitting over singlemode, 1310 nm fiber optic cable.
The production sound community has embraced the RF Optix as an affordable and high fidelity technology for extending the distance between lavaliered talent and sound cart. Sound crews now have the freedom to deploy wireless microphones nearly any distance away from the mixer, and across multiple walls or obstructions, without in-line signal attenuation. Fiber cable is lightweight, inexpensive, and more durable when compared with bulky coaxial cable traditionally used for remote antenna runs.
We thank the CAS and its membership for this nomination, and look forward to our continued and close collaboration with film and broadcast professionals.
