Q5X signs audio dealer agreement with Broadcast Solutions
Wireless audio transmitter specialist Q5X has appointed Broadcast Solutions as a new dealer in Europe. The company recently inked a dealer agreement for all European territories with a focus on broadcast-related customers.
Canadian company Q5X manufactures small, safe, rugged and powerful broadcast-quality audio transmitters. The small transmitters come into play as a body-worn solution in many demanding environments and occasions such as sports (NBA, MLB, NHL), theatre productions, reality TV as well as many other broadcast and film productions.
The company offers mobile and rackmount receivers, but additionally, Q5X transmitters are compatible with analogue receivers from Shure, Sennheiser, Lectrosonics and Wisycom. “Although we have been proven in the US broadcast market for over fifteen years, our products are still relatively unknown throughout Europe”, said Paul Johnson, Q5X CEO. “We are delighted to partner with Broadcast Solutions to bring our unique wireless transmitters to their customers,” said Gerry Forde, business development manager Europe, at Q5X.
The transmitters are remote controlled utilising Q5X’s proprietary RCAS (Remote Control Audio System) and handheld MicCommander. This means that all transmitter functions can be adjusted from a distance without bothering the talent or interfering with the performance.
The flagship PlayerMic has a ruggedized design utilising a flexible rubber case which makes it the safe solution for pro athletes around the world. With long battery life (up to 16 hours), their water-proof (up to 10 m) AquaMic means new application scenarios are nearly endless, thus making never seen and exciting productions possible and bringing the viewer nearer to the action.
Broadcast Solutions already presented the Q5X products at AudioVisual Expo in Finland and Monitor Roadshow in Sweden in October. A further chance to see the innovative products will be the Broadcast Innovation Day event at the Broadcast Solutions headquarters in Bingen, Germany, taking place 28 November.
