Built like a tank. Ready for the Road.
Indoor or Outdoor venues.
Rock solid pro-audio for any venue, indoors or outdoors. The AiRocks Pro comes in a sturdy, weather-resistant aluminum enclosure that is built to withstand the harsh life on the road. Gone are the days of panic when a rain shower arrives during an event and your wireless equipment is exposed to the elements. The AiRocks Pro is designed withstand heavy rain, baking sun, and frigid cold while continuing to provide excellent quality audio and rock-solid coverage.
And...it's a "Transceiver"
Every AiRocks Pro unit includes the ability to be software configured as either the main transmitter (Master) or receiver (Relay). AiRocks Pro is a "multi-hop" wireless audio system designed for large venues. Based on its novel “repeater” technology, AiRocks Pro can dramatically extend the coverage area compared to traditional wireless audio products (see Technology page for more details). There is nothing else like it on the market.
License-free 900MHz Spectrum
AiRocks Pro utilizes the un-crowded license-free 900MHz spectrum. No more frequency coordination or dodging TV stations! This band is "non-line-of-sight" and penetrates walls, trees, people and other obstructions that can severly limit the range of higher frequency devices, such as those that operate at 2.4GHz. The AiRocks Pro system has been tested at distances of well over 1200 feet with standard antennas, and up to 2000 feet with optional directional antennas. It has also been tested in an indoor arena environment where it penetrated several concrete walls and rows of arena seating.
Power to the People!
AiRocks Pro transmits 158 mW of power (+22dbm with standard antennas) which is more than 10 times the power of most other wireless systems in the 400MHz and 600MHz frequency band. And, with our optional directioin 6dbi Yagi antenna, the AiRocks Pro output power is 398 mW (+26dbm). And, for thoses extreme cases, the AiRocks Pro has been authorized to use a 14dbi Yagi antenna, which means an effective transmit power of 2500 mW (2.5 Watts)! This system provides, by far, the best RF coverage on the market!
Now with 2-channel Stereo and up to 500 ms of delay in every radio.
Can you say "Delay Stack"?
The new ARX-900 now includes 2-channel stereo operation (but can still be used for single-channel mono applications with balance XLR inputs and ouputs). AiRocks Pro can easily be configured for stereo delay stacks to provide either Left channel or Right channel balanced XLR outputs. And, each AiRocks Pro can add up to 500 ms of delay without external hardware!
There's nothing else like it on the market.
Traditional wireless audio equipment consists of a single “transmitter” and a single “receiver” which send analog audio from point A to point B. This type of network is called a “point-to-point” network. Most wireless microphones, wireless in-ear devices, and wireless instrument equipment are point-to-point products.
Some newer wireless audio products have the ability to send a signal from a single transmitter to multiple receivers. This type of network is called “point-to-multipoint” and can be effective if all receivers are within the transmission range of the transmitter. However, since the FCC limits the amount of power that each transmitter can radiate, the effective range of this type of system is somewhat limited.
Also, some of these newer devices include what are called “transceivers”. However, unlike the AiRocks Pro, these devices give a single unit the ability to be manually configured as EITHER a transmitter OR receiver, but not both simultaneously, thus limiting their range and coverage.
But AiRocks Pro operates as a Receiver AND Transmitter (Repeater) so that the signal that it receives is "re-transmitted" to other AiRocks Pro units downstream, thus dramaticall extending the RF coverage area.
The AiRocks Pro includes all of the features that pro-audio engineers demand:
- Balanced, line-level XLR audio input and output.
- Rugged, cast aluminum weather resistant enclosure.
- Transmit power 10X to 40X other wireless systems.
- AC powered with professional PowerCon AC input connector.
- Front panel LCD display and keypad for configuration and monitoring.
- Powerful and extensive Network Management System PC-based application.
- Flexible installation alternatives including 100' remote mounting option.
