Miami, FL (September 8, 2014)—Professional Wireless Systems (PWS) provided RF equipment and on-site services for the red carpet, morning show and live broadcast of Telemundo’s third annual Premios Tu Mundo pop culture awards program.
During the Premios Tu Mundo festivities, PWS supplied the network with microphones, IFBs and wireless communications for the red carpet event and Telemundo’s morning show, Un Nuevo Día, which built up excitement for the show by broadcasting promotional segments in the days leading up to the awards. The PWS team, including Evan Hall, Frankie Castro and John Garrido, provided offered their onsite support to Telemundo’s morning show.
According to Jim Van Winkle, general manager of PWS. “Live broadcasts always present their own unique set of challenges, but, we are incredibly familiar with the American Airlines Arena and the Miami RF market, which offers us a significant advantage, as we can anticipate the general causes for concern during the show, and remain on-guard and ready to solve any issues that may arise within the spectrum.”
For the live broadcast itself, PWS provided Shure Axient systems, Shure PSM 1000s, Shure UHFRs, Sennheiser 5200 Is, Telex BTR 800 wireless intercoms and IFBs, as well as a range of PWS’ domed and helical antennas. PWS worked with Brooks Schroeder, the main RF coordinator for the event, in addition to Acoutech, which provided PA and monitor systems, microphones and in-ear monitors.
PWS also worked closely with Chad Meise and John Garrido, who both handled frequency coordination for the red carpet. “It is important to stay on top of who is using the spectrum and to ensure that everyone is in compliance so that there are no unexpected signal issues, especially since this is a live broadcast,” says Van Winkle. PWS worked with Schroeder to monitor the event, continuously searching for unregistered wireless devices that posed the potential of frequency interference.
