POMPTON PLAINS, N.J. — October 17, 2019 — Zaxcom today announced the launch of the MRX414 module receiver to its Digital Recording Wireless line. Paired with the Nova recorder / mixer, two of these modules will allow the Nova to receive audio from eight separate transmitters all in one unit that weighs 3.7 lbs / 1.7 kg, until now a typical sound bag with similar capabilities would weigh upwards of 25+ lbs.

MRX414 is a module style receiver compatible with the Nova mixer / recorder, RX-12 and RX-12R. The UHF diversity receiver utilizes the High Q tunable tracking front end filter within its host device to combat interference and extend range. The module is compatible with any Zaxcom digital recording wireless transmitter and with all current Zaxcom modulations (Mono, Stereo, XR and ZHD96).

A new fourth generation receiver to follow up the QRX212, the new MRX414 sets a new standard for RF performance. The ultra-low noise floor (-135 dB) RF design will provide ultra-long range. The MRX is almost impossible to overload. Close distance transmitters have virtually no effect on the reception of distant transmitters. The RF performance exceeds the previous generation of Zaxcom receivers by 5 dB while enhancing the rejection of interfering signals from things like walkie talkies, cell phones and HD Television transmission by 10 dB.

The MRX414 receives a 100% digital signal that is fully encrypted resulting in audio quality far superior to any analog system.

Whether the module is used with a Nova mixer / recorder, RX-12 or RX-12R, a full color LCD on the host unit lets users easily navigate the menu. The built-in frequency scanner and Auto-Pick software eliminates the guess work and can coordinate and choose the best frequencies with a push of a button. When used in the Nova mixer / recorder, the user can re-frequency the transmitters to match the MRX414 with a touch of a button via ZaxNet™.

The MRX414 is one of the most power efficient digital wireless receivers on the market – the module draws 300 mA @ 13 VDC (150 mA per receiver).
