Just a quick note to point out that there will be two wireless microphone-related panel discussions at the upcoming Audio Engineering Society convention to be held at the Javits Center in New York this October.
The AES convention, which is held annually in the U.S. on alternating coasts, always has a number of excellent workshops and panels covering sound reinforcement, and this year, must-see subjects such as “AC Power and Grounding”, “Microphone Dressing” and “Church and House of Worship”, among others, will be part of the live sound menu.
The wireless programming in particular should be excellent.
On Saturday, October 10 at 2 pm, Henry Cohen of Production Radio Rentals will chair a panel to discuss the issues of White Space and Spectrum Allocation. For those of you who don’t know Mr. Cohen, he is a guru in the area of wireless microphones, radio transmission and RF spectrum.
I strongly advise you to attend this panel discussion if you can – you’ll end up better informed on this important issue.
In the same room, starting at 3 pm, following the White Spaces panel, James Stoffo of Professional Wireless Systems will chair a panel titled “Practical Advice for Wireless Microphone Users”.
Mr. Soffo has vast experience with wireless microphone systems, large and small – he has coordinated RF frequencies for the Super Bowl and the Grammys, to name just a few.
This is the panel to attend if you are using or plan to use wireless microphones, period. Issues covered will include antenna choice and placement, component choice, gain staging and common pitfalls.
Even if you think you know a lot about wireless microphones, Mr. Stoffo and his panelists will give you some important clues about how to increase your knowledge and improve your results on stage, in your church, on your tour, or in your band.
