AlienBees to Release CyberSync 2.4GHz Transmitter, Receiver in May 2008

AlienBees CyberSync 2.4GHz trigger-transmitter and trigger-receiver

AlienBees has announced the CyberSync 2.4GHz trigger-transmitter and companion CyberSync trigger-receiver for remote control lighting. These products, designed by Paul C. Buff, are now undergoing FCC testing and are expected to ship in May 2008.

Paul said the CyberSync system is an advanced binary encoded system with a high degree of error security to assure freedom from false tripping. The system employs 16 selectable operating frequencies within the 2.4GHz band to allow rejection of interference signals as well as interaction from other photographers who might be using radio controls in the area.

“This is vastly superior technology to Asian designed trippers that use pulse width encoding with no error detection. Our initial testing indicates a usable range of 120 to 500 feet,” Paul said.

The CyberSync 2.4GHz trigger-transmitter will retail for about $60 while the AC-powered CyberSync trigger-receiver will sell for $70. They are accepting pre-orders now.
