Deity THEOS UHF receiver attaching antennae

Step #1

First, make sure your antennas are attached to the transmitter and receiver – the units will fail to pair without them.

Step #2

The antenna tip color corresponds to the specific frequency range it is designed to be used with. Here is a quick graphic explaining which selections to use.

For this tutorial we will be using frequencies in the 500 range, so all of our devices will be using red antennas.

Step #3

Next, open up the Frequency menu on your transmitters and standby to pair.

Step #4

In your receiver’s Frequency menu, select scan.

This will measure the spectrum in the selected range and automatically find the cleanest channels for your devices to be on.

Step #5

If your current range is crowded or the noise is too persistent, you can always change the frequency range altogether.

Step #6

Once the scan is complete, you’ll see the channels it has selected for you.

Press Yes to accept.

Step #7

On transmitter 1, press Pair. It will tell you if the pair was successful.

On transmitter 2, repeat this process.

Step #8

If you notice that range or dropouts are becoming an issue later in the shoot day, you can always change to a spare frequency that the receiver has saved that was also clean.

Step #9

Remember, all of the frequency bands are available to you. If one is giving you trouble, try out another for the best results.

Step #10

If you’re shooting in a location where certain frequencies must be avoided, you can always manually change the frequency on the receiver.

The transmitter will follow this command.
