Frequently Asked Questions
The Catchbox Cover is made from a combination of soft durable foam and fabric softening the impact to objects or people in the room or parts inside the Catchbox. This said, while there is no danger of injury if Catchbox is passed or thrown hand to hand using common sense, long passes and reckless throwing in rooms with fragile objects and unsuspecting people can lead to accidents.
This is why it's important to always inform people what the product is and when it will be used.
No. However, if you would like to record audio with the Catchbox, simply connect the receiver to a recorder, for example to a laptop.
No. Catchbox automatically cuts all the unwanted sounds when it is in motion. This is achieved using its patent pending automute technology, which is included in all models of the Catchbox.
The outer cover is easy to replace and customers can purchase individual replacement covers. These are sold through our webstore.
You need to use a third party transmitter with the Catchbox Pro. We have tested for compliance the following transmitters: Shure ULX-D1 QLX-D1 UR1M Sennheiser SK 500 (Evolution Wireless) SK 300 (Evolution Wireless) SK 100 (Evolution Wireless) AKG DPT 700 PT 470 PT 420.
You could possibly use other transmitters as long as the belt-pack physically fits inside the Catchbox Pro and can be connected with any of the adapter cables that we provide with your unit: - 3 pin mini XLR (AKG) - 4 pin mini XLR (Shure) - 3.5 mm jack (Sennheiser).
If you are using a beltpack from another brand (even if it uses one of these connectors) please contact us and we will be happy to advise on compatibility.
The Pro Module versions limitations depend on the beltpack transmitters of your choosing, which can operate in other frequency bands.. In most cases you may be able to have tens of units in one room.
The reason is that the Catchbox Lite comes with its own transmitter and receiver that work in the 2.4 GHz band. The Catchbox Pro doesn't come with a transmitter, but instead allows you to connect your own beltpack. So there are more electronic components included with the Catchbox Lite.
The Catchbox Pro DOES NOT come with a transmitter or receiver so you need to use your own equipment. You can insert your existing beltpack into the Catchbox and use any of the 3 connectors that we provide (3.5 mm jack, 3 pin mini XLR and 4 pin mini XLR). It is suitable for larger events and its range will depend on your own system.
The Catchbox Pro module in turn requires 1xAA battery to power its muting circuit as well as separate batteries to power the transmitter. The 1 AA battery will power the muting circuit for upto 20 hours, however, most likely the beltpack transmitter will require its batteries to be changed long before that.
For Catchbox Pro, the range is determined entirely by the specifications of the beltpack transmitter placed inside.
