If you operate a wireless microphone system and have not been made aware then you need to read the following as this relates to you.
With the introduction and continued growth of 4G wireless systems the ACMA is relocating the frequency that most wireless microphones manufactured since the announcement in December 2013 operate on.
The below is taken from the ACMA website.
The changes made are arrangements for wireless audio transmitters in the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2000.
The changes to the class licence:
- mean that after 31 December 2014, wireless audio transmitters (including wireless microphones) will no longer be authorised to operate in the frequency range 694-820 MHz (the digital dividend band)
- introduce new arrangements supporting the use of digital wireless audio transmitters in the frequency range 520-694 MHz
- introduce new arrangements supporting the use of wireless audio transmitters operating in the frequency range 1790-1800 MHz.
With this introduction many existing systems will need to be replaced, thankfully AKG have come to the party and as a result AV Domain are passing on the savings directly to you, the ones that need it.
