    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

    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

    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
