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.
Catchbox can be used with most audio systems. The Lite version of the device comes with a receiver and accompanying cable and adapters that allow it to connect to audio mixers, laptops, and even speakers.
You can connect the Catchbox Lite Receiver to the audio inputs of devices such as audio mixers, stereo systems and laptops. First, connect the 6.3 mm audio cable to the receiver's audio output port. Afterwards, use the different adapter pieces provided with the product to connect the audio cable to the audio input of your device.
The most common inputs are: 1) RCA (common in stereos) 2) 3.5 mm (? in) (common in computers) 3) 6.3 mm (1 in) (common in audio mixers)
There can be a maximum of 4 Catchbox Lite systems operating in one room or near each other. This is due to the limitations of the license-free 2.4GHz frequency band.
In order to function properly, the Catchbox Lite Transmitter unit needs to be paired with a Catchbox Lite Receiver unit. To pair the two units, follow these steps:
1. Turn on both devices and place them within 2 m / 6 ft of each other.
2. Press the Pairing button on either of the devices (transmitter or receiver). The Status LED on that device will start blinking rapidly for a period of 20 seconds.
3. Within the 20 second period, press the pairing button on the other device. Both devices are paired if both status LEDs stop blinking and are On. If they are still blinking, pairing was not successful, and you should try again. 2 m / 6 ft
Note: It is only possible to pair one transmitter unit to a single receiver unit. Devices will stay paired after turning off the power.
No. The Catchbox Lite pairs with one single receiver. If you would like to use multiple Catchboxes in one room, each needs to be connected to a separate receiver which in turn needs to be connected to the audio output. This is also very common with other wireless microphone systems and hence, will be often the case even when using the Catchbox Pro with third party transmitters and receivers.
Radio operates in different frequencies and is used by wireless microphones to communicate wirelessly. The Catchbox Lite works on the 2.4GHz radio frequency. This is a globally, license-free frequency band which means that you do not need a special permission to operate a radio device in this frequency.
This means that for the Lite version, you can use it anywhere in the world. Other wireless microphones usually operate in so-called licensed frequencies, which usually require special licenses from the local governments to be used legally.
The Catchbox Lite works with 2 AA batteries, lasting up to 10 hours with constant use.
The range of the Catchbox Lite system is 30m. This range is considered as the Line of Sight (LOS), so walls, curtains or other objects between the Catchbox and the receiver will affect it. To maximize the operational distance, make sure to put the receiver in a visible place like on top of a table.
