A system that utilizes more than the required radio Frequency (RF) bandwidth to realize an improvement in transmission reliability.
The difference between an intended signal and the resulting signal after being processed as measured in percentage or dB.
The ratio between the noise floor to the clipping level (can also be written DR or DNR)
Audio processing that alters the character of a signal for artistic enhancement or noise reduction.
An FCC required label that helps to describe the characteristics of a radio frequency (RF) transmission.
Audio that has been specially encoded to eliminate the possibility of unintended listeners from monitoring.
A DSP that natively computes math in integer format, which has a limited dynamic range.
A DSP that natively computes math in a floating-point format that has a virtually infinite dynamic range.
The range of frequencies from minimum to maximum that a transmitter or receiver can operate in.
The measurement of the opposition that a circuit presents to a current when a voltage is applied.
In the context of powering on gear, the recommended voltage needed to operate a device
The unintended mixing of two or more signals, usually caused by radio frequency (RF) overload
The ability of a receiver to receive high level radio signals without unintentional mixing
Mobile Audio Recording Format - a Zaxcom proprietary file format that incorporates embedded directories eliminating data loss, preventing file corruption
The level at which audio can be detected to the audio level that would cause clipping or limiting
The format the recorder will output audio data in on the mirror card or secondary drive
A patented method of utilizing two A-D converters to extend the dynamic range so there's no limiter distortion
A very narrow frequency band filter that attenuates unwanted sound within an audio system
The ability to remotely control a transmitters output power tied to the record and stop function of a recorder as a way to increase battery life
The ability to record audio for an amount of time before the record function is activated on a recorder
A radio frequency (RF) channel utilized by a transmitter or receiver for RF communication
Also, a frequency which a transmitter or receiver is operating
A measure of induced radio frequency (RF) noise caused by the amplification of a radio signal (the lower the better)
The size of the window that frequencies will pass through, typically measured in MHz
The amount of amplification or attenuation from an input to an output – Gain can be both positive and negative (negative is attenuation)
