Detroit, MI (May 11, 2016)—In the auto world, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), held in Detroit, Michigan annually, is about as big as it gets.

Ann Arbor, MI-based Amazing Audio provided audio for a number of press events at the show, and had no less than nine Radio Active Designs UV-1G wireless intercom systems on hand for each one.

Amazing Audio’s Jeff Jones, who provided RF coordination, noted, “Given how crowded the RF spectrum was, it would have been impossible to deploy enough RF intercoms. Fortunately, RAD systems operate primarily in VHF with the base stations taking up only a sliver of UHF bandwidth. So we were able to use nine base stations and 54 RAD packs, which helped tremendously when coordinating press events of this size.”

Jones used 603 RF frequencies during Press Week. Seven major audio manufacturers hosted press events that also utilized the RAD intercom systems. General Motors (Bluewater Technologies) and Ford (Center Stage Inc., Digital Black Inc.), each put two UV-1G systems to use, while Volvo (Creative Technologies), Hyundai (Creative Technologies) Lexus (Creative Technologies), Volkswagon (Riedel/Germany) and Lincoln (Digital Black Inc.) used individual systems for each of their events.
