Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Revolabs Wireless Microphone System! This system utilizes
1.9 GHz DECT technology, and high band-width audio from multiple wireless microphones, enabling
clear, reliable, un-tethered communications in recording, audio/video conferencing, speech
recognition, VOIP communications, sound re-enforcement as well as many other environments
requiring clear audio capture.
The Revolabs HD™ Single and Dual Channel Wireless Microphone Systems have high definition
audio, 50 Hz to 20 kHz, which allows the systems to pick up the entire human voice spectrum. The
HD Single and Dual Channel Systems are a unique marriage of innovative technology and ergonomic
design, employing Multi-Carrier Time Division Multiple Access and Time Division Duplex
(MC/TDMA/TDD) radio transmissions both to and from the microphone.
This technology allows the microphones to co-exist with other wireless products such as wireless
LANs (802.11b&g), and includes digital encryption technology to ensure secure communications.
System Components
Depending on which system you’ve purchased, your Revolabs HD™ System contains the following:
•
•
•
Mountable Single or Dual Channel Base Station
Single or Dual Channel Microphone Charger Base
HD Wireless Microphones, purchased and boxed separately
The Base Station houses the processor and one end of the wireless connection. It features one set of
PCB diversity antennae and offers individual line-level or mic-level audio in/out for each microphone
channel.
This allows for external audio processing such as:
•
Mixing
-3-
•
•
•
•
•
Acoustic echo cancellation (AEC)
Feedback elimination
Level control
Equalization
Noise cancellation
The system is designed to optimize audio capture/reproduction by providing:
• Consistent audio input from all participants
• Minimum room noise
• Mute control
• Wireless encryption
• Automatic channel selection
• Full duplex audio
The Charger Base charges the HD Wireless Microphones and stores them when not in use.

To Install the Base Station:
1. Plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet
2. Connect the necessary outputs and inputs
Revolabs HD™ Base Station Audio Connections
There are (2) 3.5mm balanced inputs and (2) 3.5mm balanced outputs on the back panel of the unit
providing access to each channel’s audio signal.
The three terminals correspond to:
Tip = Positive +
Ring = Negative –
Sleeve = Shielded Ground
There are one or two output channels representing a separate channel for each microphone. The
microphone output connectors need to be attached to the input connectors of an audio mixer.
PHANTOM POWER MUST BE OFF. PHANTOM POWER MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE BASE
STATION.
The Base Station input connectors (also 0 dBu) may then be attached to mixer channel outputs.
Because the system is full-duplex, the input connections provide the ability to hear program audio
using a 2.5mm earpiece attached to the microphone (supplied with the wearable microphone).
Depending on the application, it is possible to feed a single audio feed back to each earpiece. This
would allow for translation, personal hearing assistance or other services to be incorporated into an
application.
NOTE: The USB port may exhibit static sensitivity. If the Base Station audio shuts down after
handling, please power cycle the Base Station
Configuring the Revolabs HDTM Base Station
Each Revolabs HDTM Base Station must be configured properly prior to use. Accurate configuration is
dependent on several variables such as:
•
•
•
Is Line Level or Mic Level signal required?
Refer to setting Dip Switch 3 below.
How many HDTM Dual/Single Systems are being used together in close proximity?
If you have more than one Revolabs Wireless Microphone System, refer to setting Dip
Switch 7&8 below. Note: It is recommended that the lowest functioning Transmit Power
be used for each system.
How large is the room?
Refer to setting Dip Switch 7&8 below. Note: It is recommended that the lowest
functioning Transmit Power be used for each system.

Pairing Wireless Microphones to Base Station
Pairing creates a link between the HD Wireless Microphone and the Base Station, with a unique
electronic serial number. When the microphone and Base Station have been previously paired, the
mic will automatically try to connect to the same Base Station whenever it is lifted from the Charger
Base.
Note: Microphones in new systems must be paired to the Base Station with each microphone
assigned to a unique channel on the Base Station.
- 13 -
Remember, microphones are always muted (flashing RED LED) when they are removed from the
Charger Base and the Mute button needs to be pressed to make it “live” (flashing GREEN LED).
A microphone that is not paired will be indicated by a cycling RED-GREEN LED pattern. A Base
Station channel that is not paired to a microphone will not show any activity on the channel LED
(make sure unit is first powered on by observing GREEN backlit front panel display).
When channels are paired, both microphone and channel LEDs will flash RED as microphones are
removed from the Charger Base and flash GREEN when un-muted. Remember that only one
microphone can be paired to any single Base Station channel.
To pair an individual microphone to the Base Station:
1. Turn the microphone OFF (no LED activity). If the microphone is ON, press and hold the Mute
button for 10 seconds until the LED turns solid RED then release the button to turn the unit off. (do
not release the button when you hear two beeps).
2. Place the microphone unit into pairing mode by holding the Mute button down for seven seconds.
The LED will turn solid RED. Release the Mute button. The microphone is now in pairing mode.
3. Within one minute, push and hold the button for the desired channel on the Base Station for seven
seconds until the LED turns solid red then release. The LED for that channel will be solid red until
pairing starts, as indicated by a quick GREEN flash, then switching to flashing RED on both the
microphone and the Base Station (muted audio). Pairing is now complete.
Revolabs HDTM Single or Dual Charger Base
When microphones are not in use, they should be properly inserted into the Revolabs HD Charger
Base. It is important to ensure that all system microphones are inserted fully in the base so that
charging will occur. Features of the base are shown in the following figure.

Power Module
The Charger Base requires 5VDC power, provided by the AC Adapter. Plug the supplied AC adapter
into an appropriate power outlet 110-240 AC, 50-60Hz. The power LED on the Charger Base will
illuminate.
Charging the Microphone Batteries
First-time use — Before using the wireless microphone the first time, charge the batteries in the
microphones for eight hours (or overnight) in the Charger Base.
Recharging — When the YELLOW LED starts to flash intermittently on the microphone the battery
has 30 minutes of charge remaining. Over time (years), batteries gradually wear down and will result
in shorter run times. This is normal. Always return microphones to the Charger Base when not in use.
Important: The Lithium Polymer rechargeable batteries that power the microphones are not user
serviceable. Please contact Revolabs (www.revolabs.com) or your AV service provider for
replacement instructions and to assure the proper disposal method is used. Warning: Never
dispose of batteries in a fire because they may explode.
Either a solid RED LED (charging) or solid GREEN LED (100% charged) will appear to confirm that
the microphone is inserted properly in the Charger Base. The microphones are not transmitting audio
to the HD Base Station while in the Charger Base. In normal use, batteries should fully charge in
about 2 hours, but will “quick-charge” to 80% capacity in approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. Fully
charged microphones left in the Charger Base remain solid GREEN.
Updating the Revolabs HDTM Firmware
Revolabs HDTM Systems are field upgradable for the firmware portion of the Base Station and
microphones. The firmware must be sent to the Base station using the Revolabs HD Firmware
Loader software. The software can be downloaded at www.revolabs.com/downloads.
