Sanken Partners With Zaxcom for New COS-11D Lavalier Microphone Designed for Digital and Analog/Digital Transmitters
Posted Dec 23, 2008

Zaxcom today announced that Sanken, manufacturer of the industrywide standard in ultra-miniature lavalier microphones, has introduced the new COS-11D microphone, optimized for use with Zaxcom's wireless digital recording transmitters. The new product, which is the latest version of Sanken's popular COS-11 lavalier series, incorporates exclusive design advances that deal with digital and digital/analog hybrid wireless transmission. 

Zaxcom President Glenn Sanders remarked, "Zaxcom is excited to recommend the Sanken COS-11D for use with our TRX series of wireless digital recording transmitters. The COS-11D, with its immunity to RF interference, provides the audio quality that sound mixers have come to expect, while Zaxcom's digital wireless technology ensures transmission quality that is equivalent to that of a hard-wired connection. Together these products will provide an integrated system that blends reliability with superior performance and quality."

In today's wireless transmission systems, the microphone must remain unaffected by the new forms of transmitter signals. While the benefits of these new systems are obvious, they present new challenges in the area of emission protection. Sanken Microphones has designed the COS-11D specifically to reduce the instances in which interference is an issue.

Jim Pace, president of Sanken distributor plus24, added, "Sanken Microphones is excited to announce this breakthrough product. Working with the latest in wireless technologies, Sanken and Zaxcom have partnered to provide another unique solution for our users."

The new COS-11D version will be introduced in December 2008 in limited quantities. The unit will be available in the PT (pig tail) version with standard sensitivity and the Red Mark model with reduced sensitivity. To create the COS-11D, Sanken has combined extensive R&D with the world's most advanced precision craftsmanship for the ultimate in sensitivity and natural sound.
