Norwood, NJ (March 6, 2020)—Production wireless and communications specialist Jetwave Wireless has opened a new New York City-area facility to provide equipment and support for the region’s broadcast, live events, location sound, film and entertainment industries.
Located in Norwood, New Jersey, the new 5,000-square-foot regional office houses teams for live events and rentals, as well as sales and integration. Jetwave Wireless founder Jim Dugan has been working in Times Square and neighboring studios for more than 20 years; included among the company’s latest credits is New Year’s Eve 2020, for which five New York-based TV networks utilized its services.
“The New York City metropolitan market is incredibly important to our business model; being able to build a local shop is a game changer for us and our clients in the region,” says Dugan. “I founded Jetwave with the idea of doing something different with RF and pushing innovation in the production wireless space. Our new support location affords Jetwave the ability to provide instant/on-site customer support in Manhattan and throughout the tri-state. The day-to-day operations will be managed by Josh Flower, who has a very firm grasp on the live production market in New York.”
Jetwave’s sales and integration department handles engineering, technology, spectrum and repair services, while its live event and rentals business can tackle project management, system design and on-site managed services and staffing. With the company focus centered on distribution of RF and IP services over fiber, Jetwave’s services include RF-over-fiber, matrix intercom, AES67 and Dante networking. The company also provides turnkey show-ready solutions for live events with a crew to manage the services.
All New York-area sales, rentals and support services will be overseen by a local team, led by Flower. “Jetwave is the best production wireless team in the world for television production, live events and RF studio integration; I am excited to lead the New York City area team,” says Flower. “I look forward to growing the business and working with an incredible group of talented individuals, including my friends and industry veterans, Mel Cubero and Nathan Beare.”
