Q5X has the smallest, toughest, most comfortable, water resistant, cool running, radio mics on the market. It’s no wonder they are preferred by filmmakers and actors alike.
Size matters, the fact that Q5X transmitters are the smallest available make them that much easier to hide. The last thing you want is a bulge from a body-pack ruining a shot. The QT-256 is the world’s smallest broadcast quality wireless mic, roughly the size of two AA batteries, it’s also the toughest of the Q5X transmitters, housed in a solid aluminum case. The QT-1000 PlayerMic and QT-5000 RemoteMic are flat, flexible, rubber body packs that were originally developed to be worn comfortably by NBA players. Easy to conceal, they can be tucked into a waistband or taped to the body. The QT-5000 Incognito is a two part radio mic that can be hidden in a bra, bikini top or in a wig.
Our Q5X transmitters run cooler than other body packs, and the form factor is unlike anything else out there. That means that not only are they the easiest radio mics to conceal, they are also the most comfortable. You end up with talent that is less distracted and happier. When you are working with high paid professional actors, making them happier is no small feat. After they have used tiny Q5X body-packs, they won’t want to go back.
The Remote Control Audio System (RCAS), which works with the QT-5000 RemoteMic and the QT-5000 Incognito, allows you to control settings from a computer via a 2.4GHz control channel.
You can remotely adjust mic gain, change radio frequency in case of interference, keep an eye on the battery level, and put the radio mic on standby to save battery power when off camera. This can all be done without the hassle of having to dig through a costume and interrupt shooting. When working with a large cast, the RCAS can vastly simplify management of multiple radio mics. You can organize transmitters into groups to make bulk changes. It’s also possible for a large number of radio mics to share fewer receivers by turning on and switching the frequencies of only the on-camera mics.
Q5X transmitters are ideal for stunt work. We originally developed the QT line of radio mics for use in pro sports, so they can be trusted to perform in almost any situation. The rubber case of the QT-1000 PlayerMic and QT-5000 RemoteMic has been designed to protect the user in case of a fall or a direct impact. The hard aluminum case of the QT-256 has been designed to protect the transmitter.
All of our entire QT line of wireless mics are sweat and splash proof, but if your actors are getting drenched, you need the QT-256 AquaMic, a tiny, completely submersible radio mic that has proven itself in surfing and kiteboarding competitions.
The internal lithium batteries are designed for extreme long life, 8 to 12 hours on a single charge. A great solution for longer shoots is the plug-in battery version of the QT-5000 Incognito. It’s lithium ion battery pack can easily be swapped for an extra 8 to 12 hours.
All Q5X transmitters have dual companding, are frequency agile in the 600-698MHz UHF band and provide high quality broadcast audio.
