Incorporating a wealth of cutting edge features, the new MIPRO true digital wireless system makes an outstanding choice for a wide range of applications, including worship, corporate, education, government, broadcast, and live sound.

MIPRO ACT-818/828 Wideband True Digital Wireless Receivers

Offering the performance, reliability, and innovative features today’s audio professional demands, the MIPRO ACT-818/828 Wideband True Digital Wireless Receivers are available in single-channel (ACT-818) and dual-channel (ACT-828) configurations. Both models are true diversity digital systems with absolutely no companding to ensure pristine audio quality—free from the sonic artifacts inherent in less capable wireless microphone systems. Equally noteworthy, these receivers employ 256-bit encryption that can be enabled / disabled as required.

The MIPRO ACT-818/828 Wideband True Digital Wireless Receivers operate from 480 MHz to 698 MHz over 3 bands, each with expanded 64 MHz bandwidth. With true digital transmission, these receivers employ 24-bit / 44.1 kHz audio sampling, a true dynamic range of 115 dBA, SmartEQ™ with capsule emulation and low latency for the responsiveness required in today’s competitive environments.

MIPRO ACT-80T True Digital Encryptable Bodypack Transmitter

An exceptional choice for applications requiring a headworn or lapel microphone solution, the new MIPRO ACT-80T True Digital Encryptable Bodypack Transmitter is the world’s smallest true digital bodypack unit—enabling the transmitter to be conveniently hidden among wardrobe. In addition to direct mute capability, the ACT-80T offers remote mute capability via the optional MJ-70 remote mute switch control—enabling the person wearing the transmitter to easily mute / unmute the transmitter—even when it is buried underneath clothing.

With a battery life of over 12 hours using two AA batteries, a robust magnesium alloy housing to withstand the abuse typically encountered in the field, a multifunction backlit LCD display for easy viewing of system parameters, shielded controls that prevent accidental operation, and six selectable gain settings among its wealth of features, the new MIPRO ACT-80T True Digital Encryptable Bodypack Transmitter delivers maximum versatility for wireless use. The transmitter ships with the MIPRO MU53LX Lavaliere microphone.

MIPRO ACT-80H True Digital Encryptable Handheld Microphone Transmitter

For presenters and vocal performers alike, the MIPRO ACT-80H True Digital Encryptable Handheld Microphone Transmitter is a terrific choice. With a lightweight magnesium alloy housing that is both rugged and comfortable to hold, this microphone features a true condenser cardioid capsule for outstanding audio quality with superior off-axis and plosive characteristics and, with 12+ hours performance from two AA batteries, audio engineers needn’t worry about running out of juice. In addition to a manual mute on/off, this unit features an Auto Mute function whereby the transmitter automatically mutes itself when lowered by one’s side, etc.—a terrific means of avoiding feedback when in the hands of unseasoned users.

Rounding out the key features, the ACT-80H includes a multifunction backlit LCD display for easy viewing of system parameters and selectable gain, low cut, and limiting settings among its many features. Top it all off with color end clips for easy identification as well as the choice of black or champagne finishes and the ACT-80H is a tough act to follow.
