Lectrosonics Launches Global Database of RF Scan Files

The goal is to help wireless-system operators prepare for venues worldwide

Lectrosonics announced a Radio Frequency Scan Database for users of wireless-microphone systems anywhere in the world. The database, the first issued by the company, hosts scans from in .sdf (Lectrosonics’ proprietary Wireless Designer scan-data file) or .csv (comma-separated values, a common standard) format. The files can be used to populate frequency-coordination software for analysis purposes and to know what a given RF landscape looks like.

Anyone can search and download the available scan files for their own use, and registered users can upload files for others to access.

According to a company spokesperson, the global aspect makes the database unique. RF spectrum scans from Hollywood, Singapore, Vancouver, New York, Belgium, and Rio de Janeiro already populate the database.

Any wireless-system operator can download available scan files in Lectrosonics’ RF scan database; registered users can also upload files for others to access.

The database can be accessed on Lectrosonics’ website under the “Resources” tab or by clicking here.

“Since Wireless Designer has become a powerful tool for all Lectrosonics wireless-system users and even users of other systems, these scan files can help wireless-system operators to prepare for a location or venue in advance,” says Karl Winkler, VP, sales and marketing, Lectrosonics. “Lectrosonics has always been focused on providing unique and useful tools to the pro-audio and production-sound communities, and we hope this new online scan database is helpful.”
