Neutrik Xirium
« on: June 17, 2013, 06:20:33 pm »

Hey Guys!

Have any of you seen the new product from Neutrik, if all is true it should be great for wireless measuring up to 8 channels per unit :)

Price here in holland is a lot less than the Lectrosonics unit but i'm wondering if the system is useable for measurement.

So have any of u seen this or better, have tested it?

The world's most preferred connector company is jumping into the wireless microphone pool?

Interesting... I stopped by the Neutrik booth at Infocomm and specifically asked "what's new?" and this didn't come up. nor did I notice anything like it at the booth.

it does sound suspiciously like the technology implemented in Shure's new conference system, but only vaguely.

I wonder if it will have a Switchcraft connector option?

Very short range though - in the 30m ballpark. For me, thats too short. To be honest, If my measurement mic is <20m away, I'd normally just use a cable

Hi Chris,

I work in the R&D at NEUTRIK and I am also responsible for all kind of applications. I helped developing XIRIUM for the lasr 4 years and customers use it for measurement purposes all the time.
We recommend 30m LOS in dynamic applications like stage, audio for wireless cameras, just everywhere where LOS is not guaranteed all the time.
For point to point applications we have tested the system more than 500m with no issues at all. So I can assure you that it is a useful tool for all kind of measurements out there, since we have a fixed and sample accurate latency and no compression at all.

Regards, Juergen

Hey Neutrik guys,

So i spoke to a UK rep about Xirium, and I'm very interested.

He said that at present, I can't use a Portable TX and a Touring RX (which is how I would like to use the system) without the rackmount base in between, but that this functionality would be available in a future firmware update.

Could you tell me whether this is something that will happen sooner or later?
