Sony WRR-862B UHF synthesised dual diversity wireless tuner, covering TV Channels 38-40, ready for the digital switchover
Let the performer move without strings attached
Flexibility to transmit and thus record two wireless audio channels can sometimes be vital for a particular news piece or a location recording. This affordable diversity tuner has been introduced to meet the demand for such two-channel reception on location. The WRR-862B two channel receiver is perfect for any application such as news, EFP, rental etc.
NOTE: This model is available in multiple versions to support the widest possible range of operating frequencies. Please refer to product specifications for more information.
This product comes with PrimeSupport – fast, hassle-free repairs and a helpline offering expert technical advice. Which gives you the peace of mind that Sony is looking after your equipment, and your business.
Flexible frequency management
The WRR-862B can be supplied at any 24MHz band (3 TV Channels) between 470MHz and 862MHz.
It will also be possible to re-tune the product delivered to another 24MHz band within its original band.
Low band products TV CH 21 to 32
Mid band products TV CH 33 to 44
High band products TV CH 45 to 69
Stereo or two independent simultaneous received channels
Due to dual diversity, it is possible to receive two independent programs or one stereo program.
No external RF noise surprises using the scan feature
For added safety on location the WRR-862B also includes an RF scan function, allowing you to identify if any RF noise is present possibly disturbing your performance.
Eliminating drop-outs and improving practical noise floor through Space Diversity
Using the two antennae, positioned so that they "see" the same environment, it is statistically unlikely that the Field Strength will drop under a critical level at the same time at both antennae.
Receiving both signals and selecting the best of them will not only reduce the likelihood of a total drop out, but also improve the practical audio noise floor
Comprehensive Squelch functions for RF noise free operation
The WRR-862B has pilot tone squelch, Low RF Muting and Excessive White Noise Muting functions. Together these three technologically advanced functions ensure optimum noise free and seamless performance.
The "Low RF Muting" level can be adjusted by the user.
Exceptional rejection of unwanted signals
While maintaining optimum integrity of the desired signal, exceptional rejection and seamless muting is achieved through the use of advanced filtering techniques and the Pilot Tone.
Interference Free operation with the Pilot Tone Squelch
A Pilot Tone muting squelch operation minimises the risk and equally important - effects - of a drop out. Creating a seamless transition free from bursts of noise sometimes found in systems not incorporating the Pilot Tone.
Intermodulation free operation of multi-channel systems
Optimum combinations of specially calculated and practically tested intermodulation-free frequencies are stored in the CPU making it easy to choose the correct frequencies for simultaneous multi-channel operation.
These frequencies are arranged in groups, with each group pre-programmed to be free from internal interference. Up to 10 intermodulation-free channels can be used simultaneously within an 8MHz European TV channel.
Informative LCD display and LED's for both channels
The informative independent displays gives the operator a complete independent status of important information such as selected channel or frequency, audio input attenuator level, cumulative working time on the current battery set, audio input level, RF transmitting indication, and the status of the battery reserves of each of the transmitter.
Long operating hours
Conservatively estimated, it will operate the two channels for more than 5 hours on just four AA professional alkaline batteries. Alternative power can be obtained from an external 12V power supply e.g. from a camera.
