Old Lyme, CT (June 17, 2016)—In July, Sennheiser will release a new frequency variant of its evolution wireless ew 100 G3 and ew 300 IEM G3 series.
To accommodate the increasing demand for mobile broadband services in North America, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Industry of Canada (IC) have agreed on a future reallocation of spectrum in the UHF band. The 600 MHz range, which is currently used for TV broadcast and wireless microphones, will be repurposed based on the results of a spectrum auction.
All systems and single components in the ew 100 G3 wireless microphone series and ew 300 IEM G3 wireless monitoring series will be produced in an additional A1 frequency variant for operation between 470 MHz and 516 MHz.
Martin Fischer, product manager for Sennheiser’s live performance and music segment, says, “While the process of spectrum reallocation in North America is expected to take several years, including a transitional stage, we are creating these new versions well in advance of the changes to ensure that customers seeking a high-quality wireless solution today can enjoy the brilliant flexibility and features of evolution wireless into the foreseeable future.”
