Tandem VHF/UHF Wireless Video Receiver

  • $1,495.00 USD

Welcome to the new Tandem® High Performance Video Receiver. Lentequip's new solution to a non-compromising companion for your CanaTrans or other high-end UHF (NTSC/PAL) or cable reception requirements.

Since introducing the CanaTrans, we have been repeatedly asked for our recommendations for an equivalent uncompromising receiver.  The only true solution was to design and build one ourselves to the same exacting high standards already set by the CanaTrans.  The Tandem was designed from the ground up meaning that inside you will not find cheap receiver modules that are commonly installed into other company's receivers.  By building a receiver from a discreet proprietary design, Lentequip has been able to provide you with a level of sensitivity and performance only matched by rack-mounted units costing as much more!

The simple interface allows the user to easily navigate through the channels. At a touch of a button you can store or delete commonly used channels.  There is no need for any tools to switch channels - just read the details right off the large back-lit dot-matrix screen.  Power cable compatibility is assured if you already own a CanaTrans.

Thanks to the frequency agile characteristics of the Tandem, reception is possible just about anywhere in the world in either VHF/UHF (NTSC/PAL) as well as most cable channel offsets. Microprocessor based technology allows for future upgrades if necessary.
