This antenna distribution bundle from RF Venue offers a turnkey solution to achieve professional-quality RF signal distribution for up to nine wireless microphones.
The bundle includes a black Diversity Fin antenna with a threaded mounting block for mounting it on a stand, a high-performance DISTRO9 HDR 9-channel multi-zone antenna distributor, a set of premium, low-loss double-shielded coaxial cables, and a DC Power Cable kit.
From high-profile live sound events, to film and TV productions, to routine installations in schools and houses of worship, this all-purpose antenna distribution system is ideal for diversity microphones of any brand.
The DISTRO9 HDR is designed and assembled in the USA and ETL listed in the USA and Canada.
Black Diversity Fin Antenna
The proprietary Diversity Fin is a multi-purpose antenna for wireless microphones that reduces dropouts using a cross-polarized, hybrid design. It combines one LPDA and one dipole antenna in an orthogonal (right-angle) configuration. One element captures vertically polarized waves, and the other horizontally polarized waves—doing the same job as two “shark fin” paddles while greatly improving RF and audio performance.
The antenna comes equipped with a mounting block with 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and 5/8"-27 threads to secure the antenna on the stand of your choice.
A cover protects the antenna against the elements for outdoor use.
DISTRO9 HDR Multi-Zone Antenna Distributor
The DISTRO9 HDR offers a unique approach to high-quality RF signal distribution for wireless microphones. A proprietary design eliminates traditional internal splitters used on most antenna distribution systems and replaces them with advanced “divide-by-three” circuitry, providing up to 9 low-noise channels of diversity wireless. DISTRO9 HDR employs low-noise figure amplifiers and superior gain structure to provide high dynamic range over the spectrum.
Any DISTRO9 HDR RF output can be cascaded to a second DISTRO9 HDR (available separately), eliminating the need for dedicated cascade ports and providing up to 17 wireless microphone channels in just 2 RU of rack space. Multi-zone installations are easy with the DISTRO9 HDR's two zone antenna inputs, providing coverage for large areas or multiple rooms, each with DC power available for in-line amplifiers or active antennas.
Featuring a robust internal power supply, the DISTRO9 HDR can provide clean DC power to 9 wireless microphone receivers with the included DC Power Cable kit, and can also be powered directly from a DC battery source for location sound-cart applications.
The DISTRO9 HDR is ETL listed to meet bid specification requirements on municipal, government, and other high-profile projects.
An internal I/O section provides a range of future module add-on capabilities ranging from remote web-based spectrum monitoring to bandpass filtering, and more.
As RF spectrum congestion grows and operating bands evolve worldwide, the DISTRO9 HDR is highly configurable to meet the current and future needs of any professional wireless microphone system.
