Part of the Saramonic Blink 500 digital wireless system, the
Blink 500 RX dual-channel, camera-mount receiver is available as an individual
component to expand your existing setup or have a backup receiver on hand. It
features a 3.5mm output and two different audio cables for proper hookup to a
camera, camcorder, smartphone, or tablet.
The Blink 500 delivers considerably improved sound quality
compared to the built-in mics on cameras and mobile devices while functioning
as an ultracompact digital system that provides immediate out-of-the-box
operability for anyone, making it ideal for video, podcast, and mobile
journalism applications. Once it's plugged in and powered on, it's set and
ready so your focus can stay on your content.
Connect, Power, and Go
With a single button and a single multifunction LED, the
Blink 500 RX is comfortably easy to use. Its advanced technology invisibly
handles the complicated tasks such as switching channels to avoid dropouts,
leaving you with a streamlined and simple system that requires no menu diving
or tedious manual configuration.
Blink 500 systems utilize 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution—the
same audio standard used worldwide by sound engineers in the film industry—to
give you quality sound at a budget-friendly price point.
Compared to the built-in microphones on cameras and mobile
devices, Blink 500 systems offer considerably improved fidelity and clarity
with less noise.
Knowing that camera preamps are often noisy, the Blink 500
RX’s 3.5mm output sends a strong line-level signal so you won’t have to crank
the gain at your camera. It can even be used to drive headphones for quick
monitor checks and troubleshooting.
Perfect for 1- or 2-Person Shoots
Since the Blink 500 RX is a dual-channel receiver, it can
simultaneously handle two Blink 500 TX wireless transmitters (available
separately). If you need to expand beyond that, you can use up to 18 Blink 500
systems at once to accommodate up to 36 wireless microphones.
Stable and Simple 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless
Whereas typical analog wireless systems are susceptible to
interference from TV and radio waves, the Blink 500 digital system avoids that
by operating in the 2.4 GHz band, which occupies frequencies beyond those of
television, radio transmissions, and UHF wireless microphone systems.
Within the 2.4 GHz spectrum, the Blink 500 boasts automatic
channel hopping to mitigate noise and dropouts at a line-of-sight distance of
up to 164 feet. For optimal performance, environments with limited Wi-Fi / 2.4
GHz traffic and minimal physical obstructions are recommended.
Ready for Anywhere
Don’t be concerned about licensing or selecting frequencies;
the Blink 500 system uses the license-free 2.4 GHz band, so you can go anywhere
in the world and have a reliable, fully functional wireless system.
