Niles, IL (August 12, 2013)—With a high concentration of broadcasting stations and media companies in Seoul, South Korea, broadcast company SBS Medianet uses Shure’s Axient Wireless system to combat the crowded RF space.
Given SBS Medianet’s location and inherent interference challenges, the company sought to install a wireless system that could withstand its special network configuration, while maintaining live broadcast throughout its six newly-built studios. The company chose to use Axient because of its ability to detect and avoid interference.
SBS Medianet worked with Sama ProSound to install 42 channels of Axient in six studios that broadcast simultaneously. With Axient, the technicians were able to control all of the studios from one control center, without interfering with the current IP set-up.
“With another broadcast station in our building and four companies within a 1,000-foot radius, we needed a solution that could switch frequencies seamlessly from one central desk. Additionally, with Wireless Workbench 6 software, we have complete visibility and control over Axient—including remote adjustments to linked transmitters for instant changes to frequency, gain, and RF power, in addition to the RF mute via the ShowLink Access Point,” said Lee Chae-Hyung, audio engineer at SBS Medianet.
