    For many in pro audio, working with wireless systems is still thought to be a “nightmare” filled with peril, an accident waiting to happen, and so on. In actual fact, wireless systems are meant to work and in fact do work every day in thousands of concerts, theatrical productions, festivals, churches, broadcasts and the like, all around the world. With that in mind, I’ve compiled this list of troubleshooting steps to take when encountering wireless problems in the field. Hopefully… View this story

    The Blue Angels, the famed Navy aerial demonstration squadron that’s wowed airshow audiences since 1946, recently improved the range and reliability of their wireless audio system with antennas from RF Venue and design from Atlanta-based In Concert Productions. The Blue Angels’ routines are carefully choreographed, highly precise movements that partially rely on radio communication between pilots in the air and a pilot on the ground, who in turn communicates events to the announcer. “Back in 2013, new members for the… View this story

    The new Audio-Technica System 10 PRO digital wireless system (not to be confused with the System 10, released a couple of years ago) offers numerous advanced features, including dual channel units, the ability to remotely locate the receivers/antennas, rack-mounting, and a total of 10 units that can be used together. A durable metal body, half-rack-sized chassis unit can house two receiver units, and the receivers can also be located up to 328 feet away from the chassis, linked via standard… View this story

    At the recent InfoComm 2015 show in Orlando, Radio Active Designs (RAD), maker of the UV-1G wireless intercom system that includes belt packs (RAD packs) that operate in the relatively unused VHF frequency range, introduced the TX-8 wireless system antenna combiner. The TX-8 can be used on the transmit side of the UV-1G as well as with any UHF in-ear monitoring (IEM) system. In fact, it allows the connection of up to eight UHF transmitters to one antenna. Advanced active-linear… View this story

    The new CPArray antenna for wireless microphones from Kaltman Creations features micro technology that’s designed to deliver better reception than larger paddle and beam-style antennas. With a circular polarized pick-up pattern and multi-directional focusing ability, the company states that CPArray antennas will reduce interference and drop-outs as well as help improve RF signal to noise and enhance reception of signals propagated through and around objects. Measuring 6.7 x 6.2 x 1.6 inches (it fits in your hand) and weighing 1.2… View this story

    Harman’s AKG has introduced the new APS4 antenna power splitter, which can be operated in an extended frequency range of 470 to 952 MHz for maximum flexibility and is available for DMS700, WMS4500, WMS470 and WMS420 receivers. The APS4 offers multiple technical improvements, including a flat frequency response. It is a wide-band UHF active antenna power splitter that can feed up to four receivers with the RF signal coming from one pair of antennas. It also supplied power to all… View this story

    PSW Staff 12/09/14 03:08 PM,
    RF Venue has released two new antenna distribution products: COMBINE4, a four-channel transmitter combiner, and DISTRO4, which has been updated to include cascade ports. COMBINE4 is a professional, affordable combiner for any brand of in-ear monitoring system. It joins four IEM signals into a single RF output for dramatic improvement in signal quality and extended range via optional directional antennas. “With performers of all kinds demanding IEMs, the challenge is for engineers to minimize dropouts and interference,” says RF Venue… View this story

    Kaltman Creations has introduced the IEMRadiator, a new antenna designed to provided improved reception with wireless in-ear monitoring systems. Joining the company’s Invisible Waves line, the IEMRadiator is not like a traditional paddle or helical antenna commonly used with wireless IEM systems. Rather, the antenna incorporates a unique combination of advanced circular polarization technology with a horn style radiator for directional, high-gain enhanced radiating transmission that is never out of phase. The result is a highly reliable and efficient RF… View this story
