BRIEF DESCRIPTION
MCR41/42 is a high performance microphone receiver suitable for broadcast and high
professional applications.
Thanks to Wisycom movable filter technology, MCR42 is able to work in a bandwidth up to 230
MHz, still keeping an exceptional selectivity and intermodulation immunity.
This miniature design allows to integrate a DUAL TRUE DIVERSITY receiver while keeping a small
size to fit camera slot in:



Ikegami/Panasonic (UNISLOT™)
Philips/Thomson/Grass Valley
Sony
The audio receiver block is fully digital to allow a better quality, digital output and emulation of
most of companding chipsets. It supports also AES3 audio output with an overall sounds delay
below 1.5 msec.
MCR42 is designed to be:




“easy & quick to use” thanks to automatic setup functions (i.e. frequencies, squelch,
scan), remote configuration utilities (thru infrared), an OLED display with intuitive
context menu navigation.
“extremely flexible”, with an incredible frequency agility up to 230MHz. Moreover the
DSP board allows analogue and digital (AES3) output, with multi-companding
compatibilities and other digital features.
“best in class performances”, thanks to the latest Wisycom technology the unit has
extreme RF sensitivity and immunity and superb audio quality.
“a durable & upgradable investment”, thanks to the very robust design (aluminum
housing) and the possibility to upgrade/enhance units performances.
Moreover MCR42 system is already set up for the exclusive PTT function (remote command),
developed and patented by Wisycom and now appreciated in the broadcast world:
Simply pushing this button (PTT), the presenter causes the remote switching of the receiver’s
output-line, from the “main line” to the additional “intercom line”, in order to be able to talk “offair” directly with the technical team. Then all PTT’s MICs can be connected in pre-fading allowing a
clever intercom setup.

Above a schematic with an overview of main receiver functions.
For each antenna the RF signal is split in the receiver 1 and in the receiver 2 (antenna A and
antenna B) with a wide band splitter. In this way any one receiver could be tuned in any frequency
of the switching range (typ. 240 MHz).
Receiver 1 and 2 are diversity receivers: each one is made of two receivers tuned on the same
frequency, hereafter called section A and section B. The receiver 1 section A and the receiver 2
section A are connected to the antenna A, the receiver 1 section B and the receiver 2 section B are
connected at the antenna B.
Each receiver has its own demodulated signal and its own RSSI signal (Receiver Signal Strength
Indication); a DSP selects or combines signals from section A & B to have the best audio.
The demodulated signal flows to the digital audio processor.
the data sub carrier is digitally filtered to a very selective equivalent bandwidth (3Hz). Each filter
has its own data demodulator, one for medium speed data detection at the output of the first filter
and one at low speed data detection at the output of the second filter. All the two demodulators
are connected to the supervisor micro controller for the data battery detection and signalling.
Digital audio processor: the demodulated signal is filtered by an anti aliasing low pass filter and
then converted in the digital domain with a 96KHz 24bit audio A/D converter. The digital signal
processor (DSP), working in double precision, replicates all the analog functions with very high
accuracy, ultra low distortion and without typical analog problems like components tolerances or
long term drifts or temperature drifts etc. The high speed audio algorithms implemented in
assembler into the MCR42 maintains the audio delay at about 1.3 milliseconds, making it ideally
for live events and to keep audio delay as short as possible. The DSP unit also filters and
demodulates the data carrier and communicates all the parameters and informations to the
supervisor micro controller. The audio output goes to the digital outputs (AES3) or is converted in
the analog domain with a high quality 24 bits 96KHz D/A converter and an anti-aliasing filter.

EDIT RX1: Tone Squelch
MCR42 is able to detect a digital tone squelch generated
by a Wisycom transmitters (es MTH400/MTH300/MTP40/
MTP30).
Tone squelch ON: when the tone squelch is enabled the
audio is muted unless the correct carrier is detected. Tone
squelch allows to work with lower RF squelch, increasing
the coverage and the robustness especially in presence of
digital television carriers (DVB-T).
Tone squelch ADVanced: when tone squelch is in
advanced mode the receiver processes also PTT data (push
to talk): activating the command audio output when the
button is pressed on remote transmitter.
When tone squelch is off it is possible to choose where to
put the output between LINE and COM.
The COM column is present only using the Stand alone
socket BPA42-PTT
When tone squelch is set to ON it is possible to choose
where to put the output between LINE and COM.
The COM column is present only using the Stand alone
socket BPA42-PTT
When tone squelch is in advanced mode it is possible to
access a more complex audio matrix where to put the
output between LINE and COM and between PTT rel.
(released) and PTT psh (pushed)
Usually Line is always ticked and Com (PTT) is ticked on
“PTT push.” as additional return channel (intercom).
The COM column is present only using the BPA42-PTT
NOTE: With squelch and tone squelch the audio output is activate when:
Squelch OFF
Squelch = 0,3,6,… dBµV
Tone squelch OFF
Always
Tone squelch ON
If tone is detected
RF level ≥ Squelch

EDIT RX1: Audio Out
In Audio Out it is possible to set the nominal audio output.
The max audio level of the LINE and COM outputs can be
set from -18 dBu to +12 dBu in one dB step.
The max audio level of the AES3 output can be set from
-30dBFS to 0 dBFS in one dB step.
EDIT RX1: Sig. Phase
To change audio phase of 0 deg or 180 deg.
EDIT RX1: Scan
This function can be called also using the dedicated scan
button (push and keep). It allows to make a scan over a
desired frequency group.
MCR42 manages up to 2400 custom frequencies organized
in 40 groups of 60 channels each. This extreme flexibility
makes the scan function very flexible.
Once started a scan operation the receiver asks for group
to be used.
Then it prompts to turn off all transmitters.
Then finally start the scan!
After few seconds, scan results are displayed on a chart.
Results can be also displayed sorted by level (pushing
together SYNC and SCAN buttons), making easier to pick
up the best one.

NOTE: As per Wisycom standard, group 00 and group 01 or 09 are special; respectively the “center
frequency” (474,482/... MHz) and the intergap frequency (i.e. 470/478/486/... MHz). A scan on
group 00 will reveal in few seconds the overall DVB-T occupation on the area, while a scan on group
0 or 09 will give possible working frequency, usable also in presence of strong DVB-T signal (sort to
speak working in the band-guard of 2 digital television channel).
EDIT RX1: Cal. tone
If Cal. tone is enabled, a calibration tone is transmitted
from the outputs.
It’s possible to select the audio level between -18dB and
0 dB.

-
for the group: the locked/hidden propriety
for the channel: the frequency value and the locked/hidden propriety (click right mouse
button)
NOTE: The modifications are applied only to the local channels configuration. In order to save
them in the MCR42 it is necessary to do a Write operation or click right mouse button (write to
device)
Load:
Push the button Memory view or select the File>Open menu and select the .wdf file to load. This
operation loads the channels configuration in the central grid (local). In order to load the channels
configuration in the MCR42, after a Load operation, it is necessary to do a Write operation.
Write:
Push the button Write channels memory: this operation writes the channels configuration showed
in the central grid to the channels memory of the MCR42.
Clear:
Select the Channels memory menu and select Clear. This operation clears only the channels
memory showed in the grid (local). In order to clear the channels memory in the MCR42, after a
Clear operation, it is necessary to do a Write operation.
Save:
Select the File>Save menu and decide the name of .wdf to save. This operation create a .wdf file
using the channels configuration showed in the central grid, it doesn’t save the configuration in the
MCR42.
NOTE 1: Read and Write operation require around 1 minute.
NOTE 2: For small changes of channels memory, it is possible to select only the modified cells and
write only the changes. In this case only the selected channel/group are written to the MCR42 and
the writing process is more fast.
NOTE 3: For MCR41 only one receiver is showed and can be configured.
