Part of the Saramonic Blink 500 digital wireless system, the
Blink 500 TX clip-on bodypack transmitter is available as an individual
component to expand your existing setup or have a backup transmitter on hand.
Choose between using the transmitter as a true wireless
microphone with its built-in mic element, or as a bodypack transmitter with the
supplied clip-on lavalier microphone. Either way, the Blink 500 TX's
lightweight and miniature form factor lets you conceal it with ease.
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 simple gain buttons and a power/pair button, the Blink
500 TX 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
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 your subjects may speak at very different
volumes, Saramonic outfitted the Blink 500 TX with dedicated gain buttons to
allow quick and effortless adjustment of the signal level. You can even turn
the volume all the way down to effectively mute the transmitter.
Built-In Microphone for True Wireless Operation
The Blink 500 TX features a built-in miniature condenser
microphone with an omni pickup pattern that captures clear and natural voice
tonality. Thanks to the transmitter's ultracompact housing, you can clip it to
clothing, slide it into a shirt pocket, place it on a podium, or hold it in
Lavalier Microphone Included
For maximum visual discretion, use the Blink 500 TX as
traditional bodypack transmitter with the supplied lavalier microphone. Just
clip the omni lav mic to a collar or lapel, then plug it into the transmitter's
3.5mm input; the transmitter automatically switches to the external microphone
so you don't have to bother selecting the input source.
The lavalier mic includes a foam windscreen that lessens
noise caused by light wind, breaths, and air conditioning systems. For enhanced
reduction of stronger wind noise, a furry windshield (a.k.a. windjammer) such
as the Saramonic LM-WS can be fitted to the microphone.
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.
