Deity Theos Digital Wi-fi Microphone System Now Accessible for pre-order


The Deity Theos Digital Wi-fi Microphone System is an all-new wi-fi package that brings Deity into the wideband UHF spectrum relatively than the crowded 2.4 GHz band. This could make the wi-fi system extra dependable in additional areas. I had a peak on the new system at NAB 2023.

On account of part availability points, Deity has retired two wi-fi methods. The Deity Microphones Join Timecode Package and the Deity Microphones BP-TRX. The smaller Deity Microphones Pocket Wi-fi Digital Microphone System remains to be obtainable. As a substitute of determining easy methods to make the previous fashions with completely different parts, they returned to the drafting board, and the THEOS was born.

Two Model. US and The Relaxation Of The World

The Deity Theos Digital Wi-fi Microphone System has two variations. One for the US market and one other for the remainder of the world. This is because of frequencies which might be obtainable for wi-fi, relying on the situation.

All US Theos Digital Wi-fi gadgets will help a number of bands for a complete of 96 MHz of obtainable spectrum.

550-608 MHz UHF TV Band
614-616 MHz Guard Band
653-663 MHz Duplex Hole
902-928 MHz ISM Band

Theos Digital Wi-fi additionally options swappable frequency ranges primarily based in your telephone’s GPS / Firmware Replace. Now you’ll be able to journey the world with one wi-fi microphone package.
*Native legal guidelines restrict the precise spectrum. See your authorities’s guidelines on RF spectrum for wi-fi microphones.

Detachable Antena

Each the DBTX and D2RX include SMA antenna ports, which let you swap out antennas to fine-tune your frequency or substitute them in the event that they get broken. That is nice because it makes packing and transporting them simpler because the antennas might be eliminated. Additionally, being detachable will make them much less susceptible to break.

The package comes with two units for every unit. One set has a tilting characteristic to get the antennas in the most effective place if the unit isn’t standing upright. I like this lots for mounting to a digital camera since will probably be horizontal on a chilly shoe.

On-board Recording to Micro SD Card

This is a wonderful characteristic, making the DBTX rather more helpful. It data in two format choices. 24-bit and 32-bit float as a .wav BWF file. 32-bit float is great as you’ll be able to regulate the degrees in put up with out introducing noise, so nailing your recording ranges are usually not as vital. The flexibleness is nice, nevertheless it comes at a better file measurement. I say it’s value it! You need to take into account that different variables like dealing with noise, wind, and something apart from degree won’t magically be fixable. Because of this inserting the microphone accurately is vital if you happen to can’t monitor it. All the time dangerous!

Deity Theos 1

Sadly for US shoppers, you can’t document and transmit on the similar time attributable to a patent infringement. The remainder of the world has the choice to document and transmit concurrently. Don’t get me began! Zaxcom has the document whereas transmitting patents which might be set to run out in 2030. Till then firms should pay Zaxcom if they’re prepared to license the characteristic.

When utilizing the recording characteristic, the “RF POWER” on the TX needs to be set to OFF and RECORD chosen. Now you should utilize the Report perform with the perform button and the Sidus Audio App. You’ll be able to monitor the recording with the three.5mm headphone jack on the aspect.

The built-in recorder options an EIN self-noise of -130dBu (A-weighting, acquire at +30dB, 150ohm supply impedance).

Timecode Choices

However, it’s nice to have a transportable recorder constructed into the DBTX, and for the reason that system might be built-in with the Deity TC-1 you’ll be able to have uniform timecode. The DBTX might be synced by way of the three.5mm jack in case you are utilizing third occasion timecode turbines.

DBTX Duel Channel Reciever

Deity Theos 2

Deity has performed an awesome job making the D2RX receiver a compact dual-channel mannequin. It’s slightly greater than the transmitter and comes with a chilly shoe mount that attaches with a metallic wire clip much like different manufacturers. There aren’t any different mounting choices on the DBTX physique; nevertheless, a 1/4 20″ faucet is included on the chilly shoe mount.

The package contains two 3.5mm to XLR cables to hook up with a digital camera or sound mixer/recorder. In case you are utilizing just one RX the “B” 3.5mm output can be utilized as a headphone jack to observe the audio. You’ve a couple of choices on how one can setup the 2 channels.

Sidus Audio App

Perhaps you hate menus and desire a completely different solution to change all of the settings. Properly, there may be an app for that!
The Sidus Audio app means that you can carry out frequency scanning and frequency task, frequency coordination between a number of receivers, acquire staging, and distant triggering of the backup recorder. This implies you may make changes to your audio settings with out having to the touch the gadget bodily.
