RF Venue has announced that it will be exhibiting its line of wireless audio tools and accessories — including the recently released Diversity Architectural antenna — for the first time at the upcoming ISE 2023 Show starting January 31 in Barcelona at booth CS604.
“Too often,” says RF Venue president Chris Regan, “end users upgrade wireless audio transmitters and receivers yet are frustrated to find they still face dropouts, noise and other system anomalies they’d hoped to cure. Fortunately, these problems can be resolved with a total system approach that includes essential accessories such as high-performance antennas, RF distribution and combiner components, interference filters and quality cabling. We look forward to sharing our world-renowned products with the attendees of ISE 2023.”
The patented cross-polarization approach introduced with the RF Venue Diversity Fin antenna is designed to allow wireless microphone receivers to see a constant signal, no matter how a user is holding a wireless microphone or wearing a belt pack relative to the antenna. It combines one log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) capturing vertically polarized signals and one dipole antenna in an orthogonal (right angle) configuration to capture horizontally polarized signals.
Meanwhile, the new Diversity Fin Antenna offers a slim-profile footprint for installations where aesthetics are a priority, while the patent-pending RF Venue Diversity Omni antenna provides omnidirectional reception. An additional option is the RF Spotlight antenna, a low-profile floor pad model designed to help enable wireless systems to function reliably in crowded RF environments. Most frequently used with wireless in-ear monitor systems (IEMs) but also in some wireless microphone applications, the RF Venue CP Beam antenna is a lightweight, helical, circularly polarized antenna designed that ensures a consistent signal.
When a remote antenna is used to replace multiple chassis-mount antennas, RF distribution amplifiers for wireless microphone systems complete a full system approach, says Regan. “At ISE, we’ll also be showing our DISTRO4 and DISTRO9 HDR wireless microphone distribution systems, which not only provide buffered antenna signals for multiple receivers, but also clean up installations by providing DC power distribution, eliminating wall wart power supplies. The DISTRO4 can accommodate up to five wireless microphone receivers while the DISTRO9 HDR can feed and power up to nine receivers. Both can be linked to additional units for larger configurations. The DISTRO9 HDR can also manage two separate antenna zones while our 4 ZONE active antenna combiner takes the complexity and expense out of multi-zone wireless microphone projects.”
The 4 ZONE combines up to four separate pairs of diversity antenna connections for multi-purpose rooms, indoor-outdoor configurations, or main stages with secondary breakout rooms. In addition, RF Venue also offers its RG8X cabling for interconnection and the OPTIX3 RF over fiber system to extend antenna connections over distances of even several miles from receivers.
“We also have bundled turnkey kits including all the hardware and cabling needed for various system sizes. These kits simplify ordering and implementing wireless audio upgrades,” Regan concludes. “We invite ISE 2023 attendees to visit us during the show to learn more about how RF Venue can solve their wireless issues.”
