NeverClip™ Explained

NeverClip™ gives you an extended dynamic range of up to 137dB* by seamlessly utilizing two separate A to D (analog to digital) converters. They work in conjunction with each other to capture everything from a whisper to a scream. The signals from the two converters are combined in the digital domain to provide the entire unclipped dynamic range of the audio inputs to Zaxcom recorder mixers, Digital Recording Wireless, and ZFR miniature recorders.

The full dynamic range of the NeverClip™ inputs are also recorded to the ISO record tracks. These tracks can give you extended headroom of up to 44dB. Currently, the typical file headroom is 20dB but Zaxcom’s NeverClip™ files can offer headroom of 26dB, 32dB, 38dB, or 44dB. The embedded iXML track metadata will indicate the headroom for each NeverClip™ file. NeverClip™ files are industry-standard Broadcast Wave files with extra iXML data included and can be utilized by any post-production system.

If you’re recording on a Zaxcom mixer/recorder, please talk to your post department to see how NeverClip™ files with enhanced dynamic range can give them the ISO track files they need to produce the best mix possible.

*Dynamic range is product dependant, please check individual product pages for exact specifications.
