Designed for mobile journalists, videographers, presenters, podcasters, and vloggers, the Xvive Audio U5is a true-diversity, camera-mount, digital microphone system with one microphone and a dual-channel receiver that can also be used to receive a second microphone (available separately). It offers a clear-sounding, reliable, and easy-to-use solution for recording dialog, interviews, podcasts, and speech with one person talking—directly to a mirrorless/DSLR camera.
The U5 includes a bodypack transmitter with a low-profile omnidirectional lavalier microphone. In addition to accommodating the mic, the transmitter's input also accepts line-level signals, great for connecting a mixer or recorder and transmitting to a camera.
The dual-channel receiver comes with a shoemount adapter that attaches to your camera. The receiver features two gain-control knobs to quickly adjust the recording levels. Equipped with an auto-scan function, it automatically searches and finds a clean transmission frequency to avoid unwanted dropouts. For fast setup time, the transmitter automatically pairs with the receiver. A bright OLED displays battery power, transmitters' battery life, channel, gain, clip, and mute.
The system utilizes true-diversity wireless technology on each channel to greatly enhance signal reliability, even under difficult shooting conditions. It delivers clean, 24-bit/48 kHz digital sound at a distance up to 100' with only 6ms maximum latency. Up to six microphones can be used simultaneously in the same location.
The transmitter and the receiver conveniently operate on replaceable, Xvive ID799 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that provide up to 5 hours of operation on a full charge. You can carry spare batteries (available separately) and quickly swap them with the ones in your system, allowing you to work on extended shoots without worrying about running out of power.
