    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

    Since the “paddle” or “shark fin” directional antennas for wireless systems (actually called LPDA or Log Periodic Dipole Array) are often seen at major events, it’s easy to conclude that such devices are always better and should be used for your church wireless system. However, directional antennas aren’t always best for every application. Related to this, there is the misconception that putting the antennas closer to the transmitters is a good thing, even if your receivers are far away and… View this story

    Kaltman Creations has introduced the new Aaronia PowerLOG horn antenna series, characterized by a broad frequency range and very high input power. The antenna gain increases with frequency up to a maximum of 13 dBi. The PowerLOG 10800 and 70180 are suitable for both transmitting and receiving purposes. Due to the very high maximum transmission power capability the PowerLOG is especially suitable for EMC and immunity test measurements. The antennas include typical calibration data. The 10800 model has a frequency… View this story

    Ten important things to be aware of in the quest for optimum results with in-ear monitoring: Coordination. TV broadcasts are the dominant feature of the local RF spectrum. Online resources like the Sennheiser Frequency Finder, which uses a ZIP code, and the FCC’s database to provide a list of local TV broadcast stations and their signal strength, helps users tune wireless systems to interference-free frequencies, removing much of the guesswork. Antennas. Most wireless in-ear monitoring transmitters come with a simple… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I don’t know why, but things seem to come in waves. Lately, the wave has been wireless microphones. I’ve heard from several people recently who are having trouble with their systems, and most of the problems revolve around two main issues: improper design and installation, and frequency coordination. Today I’ll tackle the first issue, and next time will hit the second one. Wireless is harder than you think. Once you move beyond one… View this story

    Theatrical productions have been staged in many forms and venues over the years, ranging from traditional proscenium arch theatres to outdoor Shakespearian-inclined stages, from theaters-in-the-round to “black boxes,” and plenty more. But I recently checked out something altogether different, a new avant-garde opera production entitled Invisible Cities that was staged inside the general transit area of Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. The show, which ran twice nightly for about a month late last year, was the result of a… View this story

    Seeking to end in-ear monitor signal dropouts, Christian rock band Bread of Stone’s lead guitarist Bill Kirstijanto has switched to the CP Beam antenna from RF Venue to end band’s wireless headaches. “On our last tour, I was getting a lot of complaints from the guys about drop-outs on our ears monitors,” says Kirstijanto. “We were having trouble getting a consistent signal with our paddle antenna, so that led us to seek out a solution for our IEMs.” Whenever he… View this story

    The receiver is a crucial component of wireless microphone systems, as it is used to pick the desired signal and transfer its electrical information into an audio signal that can be amplified and used for a loudspeaker system. Understanding basic receiver design, audio processing, squelch, and diversity operation can help ensure optimum performance of the system. Virtually all modern receivers feature superheterodyne architecture, in which the desired carrier is filtered out from the multitude of signals picked up by the… View this story
