Comica Audio, a leading professional audio hardware maker, has launched the BoomX-U Qua. It says the device is the smallest four-channel multi-function wireless microphone for broadcast level audio at an affordable price. The microphone utilises ultra-high frequency (UHF) technology for more stable transmission and a longer working distance. Compared with other four-channel wireless microphones on the market, the BoomX-U Qua is the most compact with professional, smooth, high-quality audio.
The microphone provides a long transmission distance of 120 meters for professional long-distance shooting and a 6.5-hour battery life, along with the ability to charge while in use. It allows the user to mix up to four audio tracks or use individual output, and supports multi-receiver monitoring. This makes it suitable for movies, commercials and advertising videos, multi-person interviews, short videos, podcasts, presentations, church and wedding services, vlogs, social media posts, live video conferencing, and YouTube live streams.
It includes four transmitters, so up to four people can be recorded simultaneously. Each transmitter has 4 channels, with 24 selectable UHF channels available, so that if channels are being used nearby, the user can switch to another channel to prevent interference. The UHF radio wave technology and dual-antenna design ensure stable signal transmission and clear sound recording. The mic provides real-time audio monitoring to connect headphones to the receiver’s 3.5mm headphone jack.
The “Qua” in BoomX-U Qua is an abbreviation of “quarter,” named after its four-channel capability. It is compatible with DSLR cameras, camcorders, recorders, iPhones and Android smartphones.
