    Note that the recent PSW webinar, “Wireless Apocalypse or Hype,” presented by the author and providing further information, is also now available for viewing and download here. After dedicating my entire professional career to wireless audio, I can assure you that there is no “hype” here. Whether the “apocalypse” applies or not is largely up to us. If we pay attention to the new RF landscape and follow a few simple guidelines, we may just all get through this relatively… View this post

    Lectrosonics announced today, April 1, that it is introducing the world’s first solar-powered wireless microphone transmitter, the WXLR. The new transmitter is based on the idea that today’s solar cell technology is sufficiently advanced for use on portable electronic devices. The WXLR utilizes the design of the previously introduced WM water-tight transmitter. Being fanatics, Lectrosonics engineers aimed to simplify that design even further and make the housing even more bulletproof by eliminating the battery compartments and associated doors altogether.

Here are some of the more common misconceptions. 1. A directional “paddle” antenna is always needed. Sure, a directional… View this post
