LINE 6 ANNOUNCES XD-SERIES DIGITAL WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Four new digital wireless microphone systems offer unmatched wireless performance, simplicity and sound quality – worldwide
CALABASAS, Calif.—June 9, 2010—Line 6, Inc. (line6.com), the industry leader in digital modeling technology for music-creation products, announced today its new XD-series line of digital wireless microphone systems.
“When it comes to digital technology, Line 6 is always one step ahead” remarked Don Boomer, Microphone Product Line Manager at Line 6. “We recognized long ago that analog wireless technology was showing signs of diminished reliability and quality. That’s why the XD-series systems feature our fourth-generation digital wireless technology when other companies are on their first. The result is unmatched wireless performance, simplicity and sound quality worldwide – license free.”
The XD-series line includes two handheld cardioid microphone systems, XD-V30 and XD-V70, and two beltpack systems, XD-V30L and XD-V70L.
All XD-series digital wireless systems feature exclusive Line 6 digital technologies. New DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) and PDP™ (Proprietary Data Placement) technologies provide encoded digital transmissions, govern against AF interference and audio artifacts, and ensure reliable operation in hostile RF environments.
Whereas analog wireless systems’ audio may degrade with distance, Line 6 digital wireless technologies ensures zero audio degradation. XD-series digital wireless microphone systems feature full-quality audio specs (10 Hz – 20 kHz RF frequency response, up to >120 dB dynamic range, and 24-bit digital conversion) to the limits of their ranges.
XD-V30 and XD-V70 take advantage of Line 6’s leadership position in digital modeling technology. They feature high-quality microphone models (one in XD-V30; seven in XD-V70) inspired by the sounds of the world’s leading live-sound microphones. These models provide familiar sounds to performers, audiences and front-of-house engineers.
All four digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4GHz band, which successfully avoids interference from high-powered sources. The 2.4GHz band also allows for license-free use worldwide.
