Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media. Further commenting on the honor, Alan Feckanin, director Americas, says “We are happy to be a nominee for the NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award in Outstanding Technical Achievement for our TG 500 wireless system. Many companies enter their product for this award given yearly by NAMM and we are excited to be nominated. This demonstrates how much technical excellence went into creating the TG 500. The TG 500 is ideal for many applications.” The nomination announcement follows a two-month call for entries of standout technical and creative products and projects that have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. A panel of respected industry voters from pro audio publications as well as members of professional music, technical and creative organizations, along with select NAMM members carefully evaluated each entry before selecting the TG 500 for the nomination. The TG 500 wireless system focuses on modern features and can be used license-free almost all over the world, depending on the frequency band selected. The system is available in five sets, each of which contains an individual receiver and two removable antennas. The TG 550 Vocal Set is supplied with the dynamic TG 500H-D handheld transmitter with a TG V50 capsule (dynamic capsule, cardioid), whereas the TG 556 Vocal Set comes with a TG 500H-C handheld transmitter with a TG V56 capsule (condenser capsule, cardioid). There are matching microphone clamps for both handheld transmitters. The TG L58 clip-on microphone (condenser, omnidirectional) from the TG 558 Presenter Set can be worn in an inconspicuous position during lectures, while the TG 534 Headworn Set with a TG H34 neckworn microphone (condenser, supercardioid) is the perfect choice for theatre productions. Electric and bass guitars can be miked using the WA-CGI instrument cable (6.35 mm mono jack), which is part of the TG 510 Instrument Set.
