The new, rugged transmitter features AES-256-CTR (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption technology

Lectrosonics has released a new digital belt pack transmitter as part of its DSW (Digital Secure Wireless) microphone system. Featuring 24 bit/48 kHz digital audio, the DBa is optimised for use in theatre, filmmaking and touring. The compact, machined metal construction strives for durability, and AES-256-CTR (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption technology, the DBa transmitter is aimed at applications where privacy is of concern, such as corporate boardrooms, shareholder meetings, and government facilities.
 
The DBa features wideband tuning (470-698 MHz), a linear RF output stage for reduced intermodulation distortion and 50 mW transmission RF power. The TA5M mic/line input found on the DBa digital wireless belt pack transmitter accepts all lavalier and head-worn microphones wired for Lectrosonics servo-input transmitters.
 
“The new DBa digital belt pack transmitter is the ideal tool for critical audio applications where sound quality is first on the list," said Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics’ VP of sales. "With powerful encryption, the DBa will also be at home on closed sets, theaters, corporate and government environments where privacy is a must. Of course, the DBa has that classic Lectrosonics feel of machined metal - you know it will hold up when things get tough.”
