ABTT 2017: UK debut for JTS R-4

At London’s ABTT Theatre Show this week, the next generation R-4 wireless microphone system from JTS will make its UK debut on the FBT Audio UK stand (B41).

Designed for maximum ease of use and with the ability to swiftly adapt to its environment, the compact full diversity R-4 delivers four channels plus a suite of high-end features in a 1U, 19-inch rack mountable, rugged enclosure.

First unveiled at the NAMM Show in California, the R-4 is built to overcome today’s squeezed spectrum, as the UHF system is channel 38-ready, providing more coverage within a limited bandwidth. System setup can be achieved in less than one second thanks to JTS’ REMOSET technology – users can sync all data between receivers and transmitters with a single button push.

Each compact 1U receiver also includes integral antennas and a power cascade feature, meaning multiple receivers can be linked with ease and no additional equipment, facilitating the quick and simple creation of far larger wireless set-ups.

Additional features include interchangeable capsules on all handheld transmitters, slot-in transmitter charging and discreet body-packs.

The R-4 is suitable for applications as diverse as touring sound, theatres, schools, commercial installations, corporate events and conferences.

"We’re delighted to bring the JTS R-4 to the UK for the first time at ABTT," commented Mark Parkhouse, Managing Director of FBT Audio UK. "The magical feature of the R-4 is how compact the receiver is – just 1U of standard rack space for four channels of wireless on channel 38. With the integral antenna and power cascade feature, you can very easily create, for example, a 16-way wireless system using only four receivers. Plus with REMOSET you can set the whole system up in less than a second – literally just the press of a button."

One-on-one demonstrations of the JTS R-4 will be available throughout the ABTT exhibition, taking place at London’s Alexandra Palace on 6 and 7 June 2017.
