Irondale, AL (February 27, 2008)–EWTN Global Catholic Network, purportedly the largest religious media network in the world, recently purchased a new Lectrosonics Venue modular receiver system with UM400a Digital Hybrid Wireless UHF belt pack transmitters.
“We’ve been Lectrosonics users for quite some time,” says Kris Kirchler, senior audio engineer for EWTN Global Catholic Network. “We use five sets of Lectrosonics’ older 195 series wireless systems, which include a portable receiver with a belt pack transmitter for use with a lavaliere microphone as well as a plug-on adapter for handheld microphones, and we also have two of the 200 series wireless systems for use in our studio. This gear may be a bit dated compared to the latest wireless equipment, but it sounds great and it’s been absolutely bullet-proof.”
Regarding the new Lectrosonics Venue modular receiver system, Kirchler says, “We purchased this equipment based upon the success we’ve had with our earlier systems,” said Kirchler. “Lectrosonics wireless systems are by far the most dependable systems we’ve encountered and their sound quality is second to none. The clarity of these systems has to be heard to be appreciated. The design of the electronics systems is just outstanding.”
EWTN transmits television programming 24 hours a day to more than 146 million homes in 140 countries and territories on more than 5,200 cable systems, wireless cable, Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS), low power TV, IPTV platforms and to individual satellite users.
