Nashville, TN (June 6, 2004)–AKG Acoustics has introduced its new WMS 400 UHF wireless system as “the perfect, cost-effective solution for A/V contractors, rental companies or musicians who need a high-performance, frequency-agile wireless microphone system that is easy to setup and use.”
The WMS 400 receiver will scan, locate a clear frequency and transmit the data via infrared to the transmitter. The entire system can reportedly be set up and working in less than one minute.
Audio performance specs include 120 dB dynamic range and a 35-20,000 Hz bandwidth. WMS 400 transmitters have 50 mW RF output, and up to 12 WMS 400 systems can be used simultaneously in each of its two frequency bands (a maximum possibility of 24 simultaneous systems). WMS 400 receivers have a full display of all operating parameters, plus, the display changes from green to red if any fault condition (such as low battery) is detected.
WMS 400 transmitters are said to deliver six hours of use from a single 1.5-volt “AA” battery or eight hours of use from the optional high-current NiMh rechargeable battery. To further minimize operating cost and ease of use, all WMS 400 transmitters have integrated charging contacts so they can be placed directly in the optional CU 400 charging station.
