Reporter unit STAR-42

The STAR-42 full-duplex reporter unit has been designed thinking in stituations where a portable and autonomous system allows to perform live reports. Together with the RD-42 diversity receiver and the TR-42 return transmitter, conforms a complete full-duplex link suitable to work in live ENG.

The unit is equiped with a 16 channels in the transmitter side as well as 16 channels in the receiver section. The transmitter is a high quality wireless microphone with a power up to 3W* in order to cover extensive areas.

The talkback receiver completes the full-duplex system. Its innovative design gets an excellent radio and audio fidelity in signal bandwidth and dynamics. The unit is provided with a comfortable leather bag for transport. The STAR-42 operates from a Li-Ion battery (type DR-202) that guarantees an endurance no less than 6 hours of continuous work.
