WIRELESS AUDIO DESIGN AND COORDINATION

These days it's a given that wireless mics, in-ear monitors and intercoms play roles of some sort in every type of live event or meeting, and are components of most permanent installs.

Dialing in usable frequencies on these systems may seem easy, thanks to preset frequency groupings, but quite often such large numbers of wireless audio devices are required that presets alone are not enough. Having different models and types of systems on the same show or install makes matters more complicated. (Plus, the sheer popularity of wireless mics creates a high risk of interference from neighboring venues.) And on top of that, the impending release of wireless broadband devices that will use the old analog TV frequencies (which had been shared with wireless audio), will require that wireless audio devices be registered before use - whether temporary or permanent.

For these reasons, it is highly beneficial to have a tech well-versed in wireless mic, in-ear monitor and intercom/IFB technology work on your event or installation. And if your project involves a particularly large number of systems (more than a couple dozen positions or so), you'll need a tech whose primary duty is stewardship of all wireless audio.

Wireless audio is one of my specialties, and I can handle both the frequency coordination and antenna selection/placement aspects. My methods rely on advance work: Hand me the details about your project (stage plots, mic requirements, speaker/talent information, media coverage, floor plans and other venue information), and I'll help you spec wireless audio systems that will be rock-solid reliable. I can also go to your site to supervise installation, tuning and testing. No wireless job is too big or unusual for me!
