Sabine is now shipping SWM6000 Smart Spectrum wireless microphone systems that operate in the 915 MHz ISM band, which is license-free and available for use in North and South America.
Because the 902 to 928 MHz ISM band is outside the range of frequencies that have been allocated for consumer wireless products and broadcast digital television (DTV), wireless users will be able to use all available channels in the band without interference from DTV or other UHF devices.
SWM6000 Smart Spectrum receivers are available in one- and two-channel models and come with Sabine’s built-in processing, including FBX Feedback Exterminator, compressor/limiter, adaptive de-esser, and parametric filters, as well as the company’s proprietary Mic SuperModeling, which provides a “virtual cabinet” of microphone sounds. In addition, SWM6000 systems offer refined dual companding that contributes to clean sound.
Like Sabine SWM7000 systems (which operate in the 2.4 GHz ISM band), these new systems also offer built-in RF scanning and recording, selectable front panel control lockouts, networked control for the maximum number of channels, and remote control via third party controllers like Crestron or AMX.
Long-life rechargeable NiMH batteries power the SWM6000 transmitter, and each transmitter is outfitted with a built-in charger jack. A convenient handheld microphone clip doubles as a charger stand — whenever a handheld mic is in the clip, the battery is recharging.
SWM6000 wireless microphone systems will be on display at the Sabine booth (number 5944) at the upcoming 2009 InfoComm show in Orlando.
