INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting the Azden 1201 Series for your portable/ENG
on-camera UHF wireless needs. We are confident that these components will perform beyond your expectations. For over 50 years, Azden
Corporation has been creating technologically advanced products. By
taking advantage of the latest in CAD design and SMT production techniques, Azden’s engineers are able to produce products that exceed the
published specifications and perform well beyond the warranty period.
The 1201 Series represents a breakthrough in on-camera, digital
frequency-selectable UHF receivers and transmitters. Its enhanced performance assures you of the highest image rejection combined with the
finest in audio clarity. The PLL-synthesized mixer/local oscillator provides
for extremely accurate frequency selection while the twin-antenna true
diversity front-end reduces multi path distortion caused dropouts to near
zero.
C. MIC Connector/Locking Ring
This 3-pin XLR connector [l] Is the microphone input. Any low impedance
microphone with a corresponding connector can be attached here. If the microp
hone requires external power (Phantom Power) the 1201XT can supply 48VDC.
The XLR connector is wired with pin #1 as ground, pin # 2 as audio + (and
+48VDC when Phantom Power is ON) and pin #3 as audio -.
In the real world of ENG, the ability to be able to select a “clear” frequency on the spot is vitally important. Going out into the field with a
single-frequency unit invites disaster since there is no way of knowing
what frequencies will be used by the other crews that are covering the
same story or event. Think of the 1201 Series units as your insurance
policy - Your assurance of getting the story.
Once the microphone is plugged into the 1201XT the locking ring [m]
should be rotated clockwise until snug. To remove the microphone, first rotate the
locking ring counterclockwise and then, while pressing the XLR release, pull the
microphone straight away from the 1201XT.
Designed by professionals - For professionals, the 1201 Series will provide you with years of worry-free, high-quality performance.
D. Input Level Adjustment
This screwdriver adjustment [p] controls the input level of the microphone.
Counterclockwise rotation reduces the input gain while clockwise rotation increases the input gain.

in the illustration. The compartment is deigned to ease battery insertion - With
the correct polarity. DO NOT FORCE THE BATTERY INTO THE COMPARTMENT. Azden does not recommend the use of rechargeable batteries.
SETTING THE TRANSMITTING FREQUENCY ON THE 1201XT
Before the 1201XT can be used, it and the associated receiver have to be set
to the same frequency. This can be accomplished on the 1201XT transmitter by first setting the LCD display to one of the two views - ‘Frequency’ or
‘Channel’. To do this ,after installing fresh batteries, turn the 1201XT to the
ON position [ r]. Next, using the tip of a ballpoint pen, an unbent paper clip
or something similar, press the MODE button [n ] repeatedly until one of the
two screens below appears.
Using either the UP or DOWN button [ o] the desired receiving frequency
or channel number can be set. Tapping the button steps the frequency or
channel number one at a time while pressing and holding the button in moves
through the frequencies or channel numbers rapidly. There are 188 different
frequencies or channel numbers to choose from. Once the desired frequency
or channel number has been determined be certain to set both the transmitter
and the receiver to match.

F. Antennas:
The antennas [k] should be kept clear of metal objects.
G. Display:
In addition to showing the frequency and channel number, the display [p]
also shows other useful information.
The LCD segments on the left show the approximate remaining battery life (from 1 to 3 segments) with 3 segments meaning maximum battery
power. The bottom segment will blink when the battery power falls to less the
2.2VDC and indicates that it is time to replace the batteries. Azden recommends the use of Alkaline batteries only.
Across the top of the display up to 5 segments will illuminate depending
on the strength of the transmitted audio signal - From 2 (weak) to 5 (strong).
The first (left) segment will light when the STBY switch is turned ON. The best
audio is achieved when 4 to 5 segments are lit. If all 5 segments are lit continually, the signal is too strong and could overload the input of the receiver.
Either move the microphone further away from the sound source or reduce
the microphone input gain [ * ].
The display can also show the total number of hours of use (change
to this display using the mode [q] button. To start, after choosing the TIME
mode, press the UP [s] Button until the display shows 00:00. Then, each
time the transmitter is turned ON the clock will keep track of the total hours
and minutes used. This is a handy way of keeping track of battery life.

RECEIVER SETUP (1201URX/AB and 1201URX/VM)
The 1201URX/AB is a specially developed model that integrates the Anton
Bauer “Gold Mount” to power the receiver. The 1201URX/VM is a specially
developed model that integrates the IDX battery-mount to power the receiver.
All of the functions and controls of the two models are the same except for
the method of powering the receiver. The 1201URX/AB attaches between
the camera and Anton Bauer pack using the “Gold Mount” system while the
1201URX/VM attaches between the camera and the IDX “V-mount” battery
pack.
A. Attaching antennas:
To attach the high-gain antennas to the receiver, fit the BNC connector on the
antenna on the receiver [ j], press down and rotate clockwise. To remove,
rotate the antenna’s BNC connector counterclockwise and pull up.
B. Connecting the Output cable:
It is necessary to connect the output of the receiver [l ] to the camera’s
“MIC” or “LINE” input by means of a properly wired cable (not supplied). The
connector on the receiver is wired with pin #1 as Ground, pin #2 as Positive (+) and pin #3 as Negative (-). Set the OUTPUT Line/Mic switch on the
receiver [q] to the appropriate position, matching the input on the camera
that is used.
C. Setting the Receiving Frequency:
Before the receiver can be used, it and the associated transmitter have to be
set to the same frequency. This can be accomplished on the receiver by first
setting the LCD display to one of two views - “Frequency” or “Channel”. To
do this, after applying battery power, fist turn the receiver to the ON position
[p]. Next, using the tip of a ballpoint pen, an unbent paperclip or something
similar, press the MODE button [r] repeatedly until one of the two screens
on the next page appears.

or channel number can be set. Tapping the button steps the frequency or
channel number one at a time while pressing and holding the button moves
through the frequencies or channel numbers rapidly. There are 188 different
frequencies or channel numbers to choose from. Once the desired frequency
or channel has been determined be certain to set both the transmitter and the
receiver to match.
D. Power:
The POWER ON/OFF switch [p] turns the 1201BT On and Off. To conserve
battery life, it is best to turn the receiver ON only when it is actually being
used.
E. Output:
Select either LINE or MIC [q ] depending on which input is being used on the
camera
F. Monitor:
This control [n ] adjusts the output level (MIN to MAX) at the earphone monitor jack [ k]. This is a 3.5mm mono jack.
G. LCD Display:
This display [ o] shows several pieces of information. As discussed previously, the frequency or channel number is shown. Additionally, as the diversity receiver chooses which antenna is receiving the best signal, The ‘A’ or ‘B’
segment of the LCD display will illuminate.

USING THE 1201 TRANSMITTER CONTROLS AND DISPLAY
A. Power:
The POWER ON/OFF switch [ l] turns the 1201BT On and Off.
B. Audio:
Prior to turning the 1201BT ON it is best to set the AUDIO switch [n] to
ST.BY. When ready to transmit, switch to ON. The ST.BY position acts as a
“mute” that maintains the RF signal but turns off the audio.
C. MIC:
This 4-pin Hirose connector [o] is the microphone input. Azden produces a
number of lapel, head-worn and neck-worn microphones that are specifically
suited for the 1201BT. In addition, other externally powered (5VDC) electret
condenser microphones can be used when they are properly wired with the
correct Hirose connector) pin #1 is for audio +, pin #2 is not used, pin #3 is for
bias voltage and pin #4 is ground). If you are using the 1201BT as a wireless
instrument transmitter the connections are somewhat different (pin #1 is not
used, pin #2 is audio +, pin #3 is for bias voltage and pin #4 is ground).
D. Input Level Adjustment:
This screwdriver adjustment [ * ] controls the level of the microphone.
Counterclockwise rotation reduces the input gain while clockwise rotation
increases the input gain.
E. Belt-Clip:
The metal belt-clip [j ] provides a convenient method of attaching the transmitter to the user.

RECEIVER SETUP/USE - 1201URX/AB or 1201URX/VM
As the RF signal from the transmitter gets stronger (or weaker) the number of
illuminated LCD segments in the display will change - with 3 segments being
the maximum and best. Similarly, the AF (audio level) segments will light from
1 to 3 segments as the audio gets stronger or weaker. In this case, the best
level is achieved as the display shows between 2 and 3 segments. If all 3
segments stay illuminated for a continued period of time it is likely that you
are over-driving the receiver’s input and you should reduce the transmitting
level by either moving the microphone further away from the sound source or
reducing the input gain on the transmitter.
THE 1201URX/Si
The 1201URX/Si receiver is specially designed to work with specific Panasonic “Slot-In” or Ikegami “Uni-Slot” cameras. Once mounted in the camera,
the DB-25 connector on the bottom provides the receiver with power directly
from the camera’s power supply (battery) while delivering audio directly to the
camera’s audio input. Items A. [j], C., D. [ p] and G. [o ] on pages 1 and 2
apply directly to the 1201URX/Si
1201URX/Si Top panel display and operation:
The MODE Switch [r] performs 1 of 5 functions.
Initial MODE display:
The initial MODE shows the receiving band shown as Group, Channel and
Frequency. If there is no action taken with the MODE switch for 4 seconds
the display will return to the Initial Display. Pressing the MODE switch for one
second while showing the Initial Display will cause the currently set frequency
to be displayed.
Mode #1 (GR):
From the Initial Display, quickly pressing the MODE switch once displays the
Group Display. Pressing the UP or DOWN buttons will change the Group
Number. There are 7 Groups, 6 of which have the best selection of frequency
combinations when using multiple systems. Group 0 allows for choosing any
channel/frequency. The last Group is memorized when the receiver is turned
OFF. The chart on page 3 shows the Group vs Frequency combinations.
4
1201URX/Si Top Panel display and operation (continued)
Mode #2 (CH):
To change the channel/frequency within the selected group, press the MODE
switch a 2nd time. “CH” will be displayed. Using either the UP or DOWN
button
s[ ] the desired receiving channel/frequency combination can be set
(the chart on page 3 shows the relationship). Tapping the button steps the
channel/frequency number one at a time while pressing and holding the button moves through the combinations rapidly. There are 188 different channel/
frequency combinations to choose from “Group” allows you to select all of the
combinations). Once the desired channel/frequency has been determined set
both the transmitter and receiver to match. When the receiver is turned OFF
the last channel/frequency chosen is stored in memory.
Mode #3 (SQ):
To change the squelch level, press the MODE switch for a third time. “SQ” will
show in the display. There are 3 settings to choose from:
on on = RF mute ON - Tone mute ON (default)
on off = RF mute ON - Tone mute OFF
off off = RF mute OFF - Tone mute OFF
You can cycle through these with the UP/DOWN buttons. The squelch returns
to the default when the receiver is turned OFF.
Mode #4 (SQ Level):
There are four levels of Squelch to choose from:
0 =Default
3 = 3dB (RF) increase to the default
-6 = 6dB (RF) decrease to the default
-3 = 3dB (RF) decrease to the default
You can cycle through these with the UP/DOWN buttons.
See the discussion at the bottom of page 2 and the top of page 4 for information concerning the other parts of the display.
