For more than a decade we have worked closely with professional sports leagues to develop wireless mics designed specifically for athletes. Q5X systems are in use by the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, CFL, WNBA, and the X-Games, All major networks are using Q5X wireless technology and we have permanent installations in dozens of major stadiums.
The QT-256 is the world’s smallest broadcast quality transmitter in a hard aluminum shell. Originally developed in partnership with MLB, the QT-256 is also used for football and ice hockey, and can be hidden in the pads of the players.
The QT-256 AquaMic is the completely submersible version of the QT-256, built for water sports. It has been used for professional surfing and kiteboarding competitions as well as The America’s Cup.
The QT-256 Dual has two completely redundant QT-256s in one case. It was designed so that referees in high profile events like the Superbowl can have a failsafe backup channel. The RefSwitch is a non-popping on/off switch accessory that lets referees control their own transmitter when making calls.
The QT-1000 PlayerMic was developed for the NBA. It’s the world’s first flexible rubber body-pack and it’s designed to protect the player from injury if they fall on it or take a direct hit.
The Remote Control Audio System (RCAS) is a groundbreaking technology that allows all transmitter settings to be controlled remotely by computer. Adjust mic gain, change frequencies, switch to standby, and check battery levels on multiple transmitters easily from a distance. The RCAS works together with the QT-5000 RemoteMic, a body-pack similar to the QT-1000 PlayerMic, but with more channels and remote control. We began development of the RCAS in 2006 for the NBA and it is now the preferred solution for wireless mic management.
The internal lithium batteries of Q5X transmitters are designed for extreme long life, 8 to 12 hours on a single charge. The rechargeable batteries offer a considerable cost savings and environmentally friendly alternative to disposables.
All Q5X transmitters have dual companding, are frequency agile in the 600-698MHz UHF band and provide high quality broadcast audio.
By offering high quality audio in a tough package unobtrusive enough to be used by athletes, our transmitters have revolutionized audio capture for televised sports. Q5X wireless systems have become the standard in professional sports leagues and are being adopted by colleges and high schools that want to keep their teams up to date with the pros.
