RF Venue Launches DISTRO9 HDR Multi-Zone Antenna Distribution System


Unique high performance antenna distribution system accommodates up to 9 wireless microphone systems with two separate antenna coverage zones and superior gain flatness across VHF, T-Band, and UHF spectrum ranges.


BOSTON, MA – January 8th, 2020: 
RF Venue, the global leader in antennas, spectrum analysis and RF signal management tools for the professional audio-visual industry, has announced the immediate availability of its much-anticipated DISTRO9 HDR antenna distribution system, designed to provide system integrators and end users with a powerful new tool for configuring multi-channel wireless microphone systems.

DISTRO9 HDR’s proprietary architecture can connect up to 9 wireless microphone receivers with two zones of antenna coverage built-in. With superior gain flatness and high dynamic range across VHF, T-Band, and UHF, the DISTRO9 HDR comes ready for multi-band wireless microphone operation in a compact 1RU footprint. Any of its clean, low-noise diversity outputs can be cascaded to another DISTRO9 HDR, for up to 17 channels of wireless microphones in just 2RU of rackspace. Multi-zone installations are easy with the DISTRO9 HDR’s two zone antenna inputs, providing coverage for large areas or multiple rooms, each with switchable DC power available for in-line amplifiers or active antennas.

Featuring a robust internal power supply, the DISTRO9 HDR can provide clean DC power to wireless microphone receivers with an optional DC cable kit, and can also be powered directly from a DC battery source for location sound cart applications. The DISTRO9 HDR is also ETL listed to meet bid specification requirements on municipal, government, and other high profile projects. An internal I/O section provides a range of future module add-on capabilities ranging from remote web-based spectrum monitoring to bandpass filtering, and more. As RF spectrum congestion grows and operating bands evolve worldwide, the DISTRO9 HDR is highly configurable to meet the current and future needs of any professional wireless microphone system.

Company president Chris Regan commented, “the DISTRO9 HDR is a high performance antenna distribution system designed and built in the USA. This is a powerful new tool packed with the innovation, engineering, and quality RF Venue customers have come to expect. With more wireless devices competing for less available RF spectrum worldwide, the DISTRO9 HDR provides a flexible platform for wireless microphone users operating in a range of frequency bands and adverse RF spectrum conditions.”

The DISTRO9 HDR is now shipping and available in Australia. To learn more about what the DISTRO9 HDR can do for your next wireless project, contact us below:
