Designed for broadcast, film, and television production, the Lectrosonics DCHT is a wireless digital camera hop transmitter offering a reliable wireless connection between a bag- or cart-based audio system and cameras/recorders. This UHF transmitter tunes in coarse or fine increments from 470.1 to 607.95 MHz, and utilizes 256-bit encryption for secure signal transmission. With three selectable levels of RF power (10, 25, or 50mW) and a DSP-controlled input limiter, the DCHT delivers strong, clear, distortion-free audio.

Also contributing to its solid sonic performance is its preamplifier, which accommodates lavalier/dynamic mics or line-level inputs, and provides up to 51 dB of gain in 1 dB steps. The TA6M input jack accepts two channels of analog mic-/line-level signal or a stereo AES3 digital feed via an array of cable adapters (available separately).

The DCHT boasts up to five hours of battery life via two AA batteries (available separately) safely held in place by a latching aluminum battery door. External DC powering is possible through the LTBATELIM adapter (available separately). The DCHT's rugged housing is constructed from solid machined aluminum coated in an ultra-hard electroless nickel finish. A detachable wire belt clip allows the DCHT to be easily affixed for versatile positioning.

Tunes in coarse or fine steps across entire UHF frequency range from 470.1 to 607.95 MHz
256-bit encryption (AES 256-CTR) for applications with high-level security
Selectable RF power at 10, 25, or 50mW
TA6M jack accepts two mic- or line-level analog signals, or a 2-channel AES3 digital feed via a variety of adapter cables (available separately)
Analog inputs can be linked for identical gain when used with a stereo source, or operate independently with individual settings
Input gain is adjustable over a 51 dB range in 1 dB steps to allow an exact match to the input signal level, maximizing the dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio
Accommodates lavalier microphones, dynamic microphones, or line-level signals
Side-panel USB port for easy firmware updates
Compatible with Duet M2R receiver
Third-generation digital architecture with high-efficiency digital circuitry yields extended operating time on two AA batteries (available separately)
May be powered via an external DC power supply using the Lectrosonics LTBATELIM adapter (available separately), which replaces the battery door and provides a locking coaxial connector
Programmable switch can be configured as a mute switch, a power on/off switch, or be bypassed
Red/green LEDs provide audio level indications from -20 dB to the onset of limiting for each channel
Solid machined aluminum housing finished with a dark, ultra-hard, electroless nickel finish
Secure stainless spring-wire belt clip is easily removed and attached without tools (alternative spring-loaded belt clip available separately)
Machined aluminum battery door is hinged to the housing, and latches securely to prevent accidental opening even if the DCHT is dropped
Set up and adjustments are easily accessible through a backlit LCD, membrane switches, and an intuitive menu structure

Am I able to use the lectrosonics IFB to tune into this transmitter? I didn't see an IFB mode.. just DHCT and DUET mode.
Asked by: Matthew
This unit is not compatible with the IFB model receivers. For an IFB receiver, you'd need a version of their IFBT4 transmitters in the corresponding frequency as the receiver. Such as this B&H # LEIFBT421.

Can I create a flexlist with this transmitter and the m2r?
Asked by: Matthew
Yes. On page 12 of Operators Manual it is described: Selecting M2R Receiver Functions The M2R Receiver includes a FlexList™ mode where up to 16 mixes can be accessed by name. This feature enables a user to quickly find and listen to any of the performer’s mixes on the stage. The mix includes the name, frequency, mixer settings and limiter settings. The mix is easily shared via the M2R IR port, added to the list of 16 mixes and stored until cleared by the user. The M2R allows the user to toggle between the mixes, making troubleshooting issues easy and efficient. Flex Sync DCHT, DCHT/E01 information to the M2R FlexList either as one stereo Channel or individual channels: - SendTx: Send (sync) all receiver information to the M2R FlexList as one stereo channel - SendCh1: Send (sync) Channel 1 unique information to the M2R FlexList - SendCh2: Send (sync) Channel 2 unique information to the M2R FlexList - SendM12: Send (sync) a mono mix of both channels to the M2R FlexList Use th

Does this unit only provide limited frequency ...

Does this unit only provide limited frequency spectrum (15 Hz to 11.3 kHz)? I would like to use this as a compact IEM wireless solution but am concerned I wouldn't be able to hear my mix with fidelity after investing so much in this kit. I almost ordered this before catching the limited spec as there are no other body pack-sized (transmitter) solutions on the pro market for wireless IEM. Does anyone have any other recommendations?
Asked by: Porangui
The DCHT, like the M2T rack unit, provides 20 - 12 kHz audio frequency response with the M2R receiver. Although on paper that appears quite limited, the impression upon listening to it is that everything is there. By far most of the energy in a mix is between 50 Hz and 10 kHz, with harmonics extending above that. I would suggest giving it a listen and decide for yourself. If you have already used the M2T and M2R combination, then you are hearing the same thing you would hear with the DCHT and M2R.
