Sennheiser Preps Wireless Mic User Support for Pending Spectrum Reallocation

July 7th, 2016 | Posted in News, newsletter

The wireless spectrum reallocation — which is underway through a continuation of the process called the ‘incentive auction’ — will have a direct impact on thousands of wireless microphone users across the country. Wireless systems manufacturer, Sennheiser’s support for its customer base includes education, communication and new product development, the latter including the recently announced A1 range, a new frequency variant for the Sennheiser evolution wireless ew 100 G3 and ew 300 IEM G3 series.

To accommodate the increasing demand for mobile broadband services in North America, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Industry of Canada (IC) have agreed on a future reallocation of spectrum in the UHF band in order to accommodate demands for mobile broadband. The 600 MHz range, which is currently used for TV broadcast and wireless microphones, and possibly the upper range of the 500 MHz band, will be repurposed based on the results of a spectrum auction. For wireless microphone users, this means that many of the UHF TV channels used today may no longer be available for microphone usage in the future. More »
