Anaheim, CA (June 21, 2007) — Audio-Technica U.S., Inc. introduced its SpectraPulse Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system at InfoComm 07. A completely new application of patented Ultra Wideband technology, SpectraPulse bypasses the increasingly congested RF environment to reportedly “deliver clear, intelligible audio without the performance and set-up issues associated with conventional wireless systems,” according to the company.
Audio-Technica’s new SpectraPulse series.The system is aimed for conference or boardrooms, corporate events/meetings, courtrooms and other contractor/system integrator applications in the business, government and commercial markets. SpectraPulse utilizes up to 14 simultaneous channels that are said to operate without RF competition, frequency hunting/coordination, white space issues or infringement from other wireless systems or radio sources.
Audio-Technica has partnered with Multispectral Solutions, Inc. (MSSI), an industry leader in the development of Ultra Wideband systems for communications, radar and geo-positioning, to introduce this new application of UWB technology. A-T’s SpectraPulse Ultra Wideband wireless microphone system represents the first commercial sound implementation of UWB technology, which has recently been licensed for commercial use by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
Ultra Wideband technology allows the wireless transmission of data in extremely short-duration pulses over a wide spectrum of frequencies. The “decoding” of these pulses requires the specialized technology incorporated into the SpectraPulse system–making SpectraPulse “inherently secure and preventing signal interception by other wireless systems,” according to the company. For a higher level of security, Audio-Technica offers an optional encryption package that meets the NIST-approved (National Institute of Standards and Technology) AES 128-bit encryption standard developed by the U.S. government for securing sensitive material.
