Remote Control Audio System

Q5X transmitters are part of the RCAS™ (Remote Control Audio System) that allows you to make on-the-fly adjustments to the transmitter by remotely controlling all transmitter functions.


Developed for the NBA

RCAS™ technology, developed in 2006 for the NBA, has since become popular in sports arenas and world leading theatrical venues.

Share the Spectrum

By turning on and off groups of transmitters, and changing their frequencies, it is possible to reuse one receiver (and one frequency) with multiple transmitters used at different times in a performance. For Radio City Music Hall, in RF congested New York City, only 80 usable frequencies were available. So 40 two channel receivers are shared by 300 transmitters.

RCAS™ Gateways

The RCAS™ Gateways (handheld MicCommander or network) communicate with the transmitters via a 2.4GHz control channel that will operate through clothing, walls and over long distances.

  • Required vs. optional
  • Range of 50m/165ft
  • All functionality
  • Manages up to 32 transmitters
  • Computer interface option expands to 100 transmitters

Software used to manage RCAS transmitters by computer

  • Can be used with either the MicCommander or Network Gateway
  • Alternative to the MicCommander’s Built-in Controls
  • MicControl software runs on Windows PC
  • No subscription or charge for updates (Included with MicCommander)

Give us a challenge. We created the PlayerMic at the request of the NBA, we created this TapShoeMic at the request of the Radio City Music Hall. We have created 24h mics on Buoys and mics built into golf hole cups.

If you have a special requirement, let’s talk.

Remote Control

Control the functions of the transmitter from a distance.


Originally designed for pro athletes, they can take a beating. Aluminum, polymer or flexible rubber case.


Comfortable and easy to hide. The World’s smallest and thinnest broadcast quality audio transmitter. 


The PlayerMic was designed with a flexible rubber case to not injure a player if they take a direct hit or fall on it.

Extremely Long Battery Life

Internal lithium batteries last 4 to 16 hours on a charge. Considerable cost savings compared to disposables.

Not Afraid to Get Wet

Splash-proof / Sweat-proof or fully submersible up to 30ft/10m.


Q5X transmitters can be easily and safely sanitized by wiping down with an alcohol based sanitizer.



The combination of long battery life, small size and the ability to control functions remotely.
