Avlex Corporation has announced a promotion to help professional audio wireless microphone users address the FCC’s 700 MHz band ruling. The new regulations, which prohibit the operation of wireless microphones in the 700 MHz band (698 – 806 MHz), take effect June 12th 2010.
The FCC’s 700 MHz ruling has the potential to seriously disrupt the activities of live performers, broadcast professionals, conference center operations, and countless numbers of worship facilities across the nation.
For those uncertain about how their equipment may be impacted by the 700 MHz ruling, a list of affected wireless models can be viewed at here.
MIPRO and its U.S. distributor Avlex Corporation are pleased that their customers will continue to enjoy uninterrupted use of their MIPRO wireless microphone systems upon the June 12th deadline.
In an effort to assist users with other brands of wireless microphones in making a seamless transition to equipment that complies with the new ruling, Avlex Corporation is offering a temporary 20% price reduction on MIPRO professional wireless products.
Effective immediately, those who purchase a MIPRO ACT-707 Quad wireless frame and receivers with premium metal cased handheld transmitters and body packs can take advantage of Avlex Corporation’s temporary 20% price reduction. The promotion will end June 12th, 2010.
Fred Canning, Avlex Corporation’s National Sales Manager, commented on the promotion, stating, “The FCC’s recent 700 MHz ruling has generated both uncertainty and frustration among countless users of wireless microphone systems.”
“While this is an issue that many in our industry knew was coming, it has, nonetheless, been a very disconcerting and confusing subject for a lot of people. When Avlex began marketing MIPRO wireless microphone systems in 1999, we made a conscious decision to not sell products operating in the soon-to-be-prohibited 698 – 806 MHz range.”
“As a result, our customers will encounter no difficulties when June 12th arrives. Those of us on the MIPRO and Avlex team are so confident in the ability of our products; we are offering special pricing to all wireless users to help make the transition less financially disruptive.”
