The TX10 and RX10 from Saramonic are a transmitter and receiver set from the UwMic10 system. The TX10 transmitter and two-channel RX10 receiver are easy to connect, because of the built-in infrared module, an automatic scan or on manual mode. With the TX10 comes a lavalier microphone, also named lapel microphone. You attach the microphone with a small clamp onto the tie or shirt of the person you want to interview. The included TX10 transmitter can be attached to the pocket, with one of the included clamps. The person you want to interview is now able to move freely, without worrying about a cable that’s connected to the camera.
You can attach the RX10 receiver onto the hotshoe connector of your camera, with the included adapter and clamp. The adapter also features a 1/4” female screw thread, so there’s an option to attach the RX10 receiver onto a tripod or camera cage. You connect the RX10 with you camera with one of the included cables. In the box you can find a 3.5mm male and XLR male cable, which makes the UwMic10 system a perfect choice for almost every (professional) camera. This can be a DSLR camera, camcorder, audio mixer or professional ENG camera.
The UwMic10 system produces a crystal clear sound and is made of high quality hardware. When you take the transmitter and receiver out of the packaging, you’ll understand what we mean: a durable housing, good hardware and a detailed finish make this a high quality product.
You can use the TX10 and RX10 in multiple ways. Here’s an example: you want to capture an interview with your DSLR camera. You connect the RX10 to the hotshoe of your DSLR-camera with the included adapter. Next to that, you connect headphones to the ‘phone’ port of your RX10. The person you want to interview wears a TX10 transmitter and microphone. You’re now ready for the interview. With the headphones you can listen live if the sound reaches the receiver without any problems. There’s an option to connect a second microphone at the same time. Please see below.
The RX10 receiver from this kit has the ability to receive to input signals at the same time. There are multiple other transmitters available. Think about the HU10 handheld microphone (see optional accessories), an extra TX10 transmitter and a XLR10 XLR-transmitter. (Last two mentioned are available on request). You can control both channels individually. Please see the sentence ‘technical specifications’.
Both the TX10 transmitter and RX10 receiver are working on 96 different channels. You select the channel with the arrow keys. If you want, you can use the user-friendly menu to connect the TX10 and RX10 automatically. There’s also a possibility to choose a channel (A or B) and you can turn on and off both channels individually on the receiver. The output volume is also adjustable for both channels individually. In the menu of the RX10 receiver you can select a ‘lock’ function, which prevents that the receiver will be turned off accidently. You can also select the options ‘stereo’ or ‘mono’. When you use one microphone, we advise you to select stereo. When you use two microphones, we advise mono. The sound of both channels will now be recorded on two separate channels in your camera (A and B / left and right). With this option it’s easy to adjust the audio levels and to divide the sound of both channels.
Also for the TX10 transmitter are some handy options adjustable. Think about a lock, mute function, and RF function. You can set the latter on low (10mW), medium (20mW) and high (30mW).
