The Lectrosonics Venue2 is a rackmount receiver frame that can be used with a variety of transmitters from Lectrosonics as well as transmitters from other manufacturers. Its wideband design offers the flexibility needed in congested RF environments. The Venue2 receiver is a "system" that consists of a master unit and up to six receiver modules and a software interface. It can be used for sound reinforcement applications such as live stage, theater, boardrooms, houses of worship, and more.
The Venue2 mainframe assembly houses the power supply, antenna and RF distribution, user interface and control ports, and up to six wireless receiver modules (sold separately), providing a significant reduced cost per channel with the modules sharing these resources. The built-in RF multicoupler allows up to three mainframes to operate from a single pair of antennas, resulting in an additional cost savings as a multi-channel system.
The mainframe front panel provides an LCD for system setup, monitoring, and troubleshooting during normal operation. The LCD shows RF and audio levels, diversity status, pilot tone status, and transmitter battery status for all six receivers at the same time.
Furthermore, a built-in analyzer scans the tunable spectrum of the receiver to assist in finding clear operating frequencies and presents the results in graphical format on the LCD. Also, a wireless designer software is included that simplifies setup and exposes all features in an easily navigable GUI.
