The CX2-S Slot-in Receiver
Designed for Sony cameras
Total flexibility anywhere in the world
The CX2-S is a twin channel, true diversity receiver that fits neatly into most professional Sony slot in cameras. It is equipped with two true diversity receivers which can be linked to separate transmitters with a seven pin binder connector allowing either one or both channels to be fed from the head of the receiver. The CX2-S is ideal for ENG crews and documentary makers who frequently find themselves working in different locations around the world. It features a large 80MHz switching bandwidth and up to 10 different frequency tables can be preset in the unit giving it enormous flexibility. In addition, within each table, individual frequencies can be manually selected using the OLED menu displays. It is also equipped with a digitally controlled tracking filter that automatically tracks the chosen frequency table and allows greater selectivity for the frequency table being used.
The CX2-S draws its power from the camera itself. Separate batteries are not required.
Easy setup menus
This unit is set up using a series of menus which are viewed in the OLED display. You are guided through the set up by a series of easy-to-read symbols and all parameters are selected using three buttons on the unit’s front panel. It’s so straightforward you won’t need any further written instructions from us.
OLED menu driven displays
This unit has an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display which is extremely clear yet consumes very little power. The screen shows all the important information you need to monitor the system when in use and also displays the En2’s unique easy set-up menu.
Frequency scan function
In an increasingly crowded environment, you need to be able to select usable frequencies on location quickly. So, all receivers in the En2 range have a built-in scan facility which allows you to scan for a free channel or scan for the transmitter. In addition, on this unit, selecting ‘tune’ mode brings up a spectrum analyser type display which allows you to see the RF in the local environment.
