The DLTX is primarily designed for microphones that require 48-volt phantom power through the 3-pin Lemo connector. This is great for attaching to a boom pole, as most shotgun microphones require phantom power. The DLTX 3 is fully compatible with the new THEOS wireless system.
The design is still a prototype, and Deity is looking for feedback on the final version. As of now, it uses a belt clip; however, mounting options to attach it to a boom pole are still in the works.

The system uses an Ultra Wideband digital UHF 550-960 spectrum with up to 100mW of RF power. You can also use 3V and 5V bias voltage Lavalier microphones.
The transmitter includes 32-bit capable recordings to an SD Card. Just like the Theos line, you can’t record and transmit in the US. You can in the rest of the world. If you travel abroad, you need to use the Sidus Audio app to change the DLTX 3 to the region of use. For example, you should never use the US spectrum in Europe as it is illegal.
Deity Butterfly Antenna
The second product is the Deity Butterfly Antenna. The antenna starts at 740 and goes to 1 GHz. Deity states the Butterfly Antenna is meant to be used with any brand system for a more expanded and reliable signal. The input is BNC and mounts with a 1/4 20″, so you can easily get it up and running.
Pricing is not set, and Deity is looking at a January ship date for both announced products.
