Saramonic Blink 500 TX Ultracompact Wireless Transmitter
The Saramonic Blink 500 TX is an Ultracompact Wireless Transmitter, featuring a built-in Microphone. It’s small enough to be clipped onto a shirt or hidden inside your pocket, or it can even be used as a handheld or set on a desk. It also doubles up as a traditional bodypack transmitter when used with the included SR-M1 omnidirectional clip-on lavalier microphone, so no matter what the requirement you’ll be able to record crystal-clear professional audio.
One of the issues faced when recording sound for video is controlling the audio levels. Depending on the person speaking, you may need to raise or lower the levels based on how loudly they talk. That’s why the Blink 500 TX transmitter has easy to use gain buttons to raise or lower the levels as required, and the LED display lets you know just where they’re set.
The Blink 500 TX is simple to use; you turn it on, and it works. But in the background, the Blink 500 is doing a lot to ensure excellent performance. It transmits on the interference free 2.4GHz spectrum, and it automatically switches channels to avoid static interference and audio dropouts. The 10-milliwatt power of the transmitter gives an impressive range of 98ft (30 meters) with obstacles, and up to 164ft (50 meters) in unrestricted open spaces.
The Blink 500 TX is ideal for filmmakers, journalists, vloggers, YouTube creators, corporate video producers or any content creator in need of a portable, compact and easy to use wireless system that will still deliver professional quality sound. It’s small enough to fit into any camera bag or backpack, and you can even put it in your pocket so transporting the system is effortless.
This is an additional transmitter, so you will need a Blink 500 series receiver such as the Blink 500 RX in order to record to your camera or smartphone. However there are a range of different options at the bottom of the page. It’s the perfect addition for people who only have a single wireless mic for their Blink 500 system and want to expand the system to use two.
