Cumberland, RI USA (January 22, 2015)—Alto Professional (altoprofessional.com
), the world’s leading innovator for live performance reinforcement products, today announced the introduction of their cutting-edge Radius 100 and 200 families of wireless microphone products. These new wireless microphones provide reliable, crystal-clear sound for a wide range of professional vocal applications, assuring users of an extremely stable, reliable wireless signal, with virtually no chance of dropout or interruption. This is the promise of wireless performance—delivered!
The key to their performance is their incredible new diversity technology. Alto’s diversity receiver design utilizes two separate, antenna systems for uncompromised wireless performance. The receiver constantly evaluates the incoming signals to each antenna, and instantly determines which one is the stronger, selecting that stronger signal for consistent, drop-out free performance.
Ready for any application, Radius 100 comes in three distinct versions:
Radius 100—Switching Diversity receiver and handheld dynamic vocal microphone transmitter
Radius 100L—Switching Diversity receiver, lavaliere microphone and wireless belt-pack transmitter
Radius 100H—Switching Diversity receiver, headset microphone and wireless belt-pack transmitter
All Radius 100 versions share:
Dual-antenna UHF Diversity receiver for increased reliability and signal consistency
UHF band operation (520–937.5 MHz)
Receiver includes a high-visibility back-lit LCD display: Displays RF frequency and channel, AF and RF signal levels and other critical functions
Single-button scan feature for quickly identifying the optimal operating frequency
Sync function automatically synchronizes transmitter and receiver frequency
Squelch control for minimizing background noise during silent periods
Front-panel rotary volume control
Balanced XLR and unbalanced ¼-inch mic or line-level outputs
The Radius 200 family utilizes an even more sophisticated diversity system, called True Diversity. Alto’s True Diversity receiver design is absolutely state-of-the-art. Radius 200’s True Diversity system improves upon the Radius 100’s already outstanding performance, because it utilizes two separate receiver sections as well as two antenna systems. The unit constantly polls both receivers and the signals at the antennae, to instantly and seamlessly select the stronger signal. This is what “bulletproof” wireless microphone performance sounds like.
The Radius 200 also comes in three versions, all True Diversity:
Radius 200 – True Diversity receiver and hand-held dynamic vocal microphone transmitter
Radius 200L – True Diversity receiver, lavaliere microphone and wireless belt-pack transmitter
Radius 200H – True Diversity receiver, headset microphone and wireless belt-pack transmitter
All Radius 200 versions share:
- Dual-antenna/dual receiver True Diversity design for mission-critical, dropout-free operation
- UHF band operation (520–937.5 MHz)
- Receiver includes a high-visibility back-lit LCD display - Displays RF frequency and channel, AF and RF signal levels and other critical functions
