AES@NAMM 2018: Radio Active Designs, Professional Wireless Provide Instructional RF Training to Attendees
Wireless touring professional Ike Zimbel will provide introduction and training for both Professional Wireless IAS software and the Radio Active Designs UV-1G wireless intercom system during AES@NAMM. The two-hour training sessions are part of the Entertainment Wireless Academy sessions offered during AES@NAMM and will take place on Thursday, January 25, 1-3 pm and Friday, January 26, 3-5 pm at the Anaheim Hilton.
“Professional Wireless’ Intermodulation Analysis System (IAS) software of the industry standard frequency coordination software that has been used on every major sporting and broadcast event since its inception,” he explains.
The interactive session will cover the entire program including finding local off-air TV channels and importing your own scan, band planning, recalculating a coordination when moving between venues, and tips and tricks to deal with very high channel count events.
In addition, Zimbel will take participants through the Radio Active Designs UV-1G wireless intercom system from base station to belt pack. Topics covered will include Analog RF transmission scheme, best practices for set-up and deployment, using the GUI to program bases and belts, “Scene” memory in belt packs and why the UV-1G makes the most sense for your intercom inventory.
“Available UHF bandwidth is being reduced to just (at most) 150MHz from the current 222MHz, making spectral efficiency of paramount importance,” adds Zimbel. “With the very small footprint of the UV-1G UHF transmit frequencies and the fact that the belt packs operate in the relatively open VHF band (also with a very small RF footprint), the UV-1G is the best choice for large intercom intensive events, small “dry hire” rentals. and everything in between.”
Zimbel will also present two 30-minute “Professional Wireless Antennas Types & Design” sessions that will walk attendees through the range of antennas and antenna accessories made by Professional Wireless Systems. Attendees will leave understanding how upgrading antenna systems can upgrade their wireless game. These sessions will be held from 4:30 – 5:00 pm on both Thursday, January 25 and Saturday, January 27.
