Receiver

Meridian broadcast receivers use an array of 5 receive antennas to enhance performance and reliability. With a range of accessories developed for performance and flexibility, this receiver can be tailored to meet a variety of production requirements. The Meridian receiver is ideal for sporting arenas, stage and studio productions, and live-to-air broadcasts.

Meridian portable receivers are designed to be lightweight, compact and are available with either an Anton Bauer, V-Lok battery mount or without battery plates. The antenna configuration of the Portable Receivers allows the operator to utilise a range of different antennas to optimise performance in a variery of environments.
