Lectrosonics SSM Miniature Transmitters


New from Lectrosonics, the SSM is a miniature, feature-rich, digital-hybrid wireless transmitter designed for theatrical use, houses of worship, reality TV, and other productions where concealment in costuming is required. Frequencies are selectable in 100 kHz or 25 kHz steps across a maximum tuning range of 76.7 MHz, yielding a total of 3,072 available frequencies across three standard frequency blocks. Power is provided by a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. A stainless-steel battery door latches closed securely, ensuring that it won’t be jarred open accidentally during performance or broadcast.

The SSM’s input accepts mic or line level signals with a wide range of gain adjustment in 1 dB steps. Accurate LED indications on the keypad allow precise gain adjustments to be made to maximize signal-to-noise ratio, and to minimize distortion. Compatibility with earlier analog Lectrosonics receivers, Lectrosonics IFB receivers, and some receivers from other manufacturers is provided via DSP emulation modes selected in the LCD menu.
