VSR1 receivers feature innovative circuit designs to reduce power consumption for significantly longer battery life and to reduce noise figure for substantially more range. Lower noise figure improves video quality and reduces the required transmitter output power thereby reducing transmitter battery requirements.
Receiver carrier frequency may be selected locally with BCD rotary switches, remotely, and locally/remotely with a programmable binary switch. Slide switches allow selection between standard (positive) and inverted (negative) video and subcarrier On/Off. Received signal strength is indicated with a local display (LCD meter or LED bar) and via remote query. If equipped with an LED display, intensity may be controlled by a local pushbutton switch.
