Bronx, NY (July 1, 2014)—Professional Wireless Systems (PWS), a Masque Sound Company, provided wireless services for the outdoor broadcast of Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Night of Hope from Yankee Stadium, managing a total of 115 frequencies.
The two-hour Night of Hope event billed as “an inspirational experience of encouragement, hope and worship” featuring Victoria Osteen, Dodie Osteen and Joel Osteen. This was the second time that the stadium housed the author and megachurch pastor.
PWS managed a total of 115 frequencies, and had to both survey the area to track down interfering ENG crews that were not coordinating with the show’s wireless frequencies, and be on standby for inclement weather during the outdoor event, as sudden storms open the potential for dropped signals and channel interference.
For the event, PWS supplied and deployed a majority of its own equipment, including a combination of its Domed and Helical Antennas, all running through its GX-8 Combiners for transmission, in addition to its DB-IC Multicouplers for zoning and distribution. PWS relied on its Directional Finding Kit, along with a frequency counter and RF scanner to locate all frequencies. Tying everything together, PWS managed the show’s frequencies with its own Intermodulation Analysis Software System (IAS). Additionally, Telex BTR 800s were used for the show’s wireless intercoms.
