FRANKFURT, Germany – During Pro Light and Sound 2013, HARMAN’s AKG proudly introduces the latest version of its WMS45 wireless system with revised operating frequencies for the European market. WMS45 Band 10 operates on frequencies between 823 and 832 MHz known as the ‘duplex gap.’ This frequency range lies between the areas that will be used for upcoming high-speed Internet service for mobile devices, and will enable future proof, interference-free operation.
“In many European countries the frequency range between 823 and 832 MHz will be exclusively reserved for wireless microphones and In-ear monitoring – in Germany the range can even be used for free,” said Thomas Umbauer, product marketing manager – PPA, AKG. “Band M operates with up to 6 channels simultaneously and compatible frequencies are stored in presets.”
Designed for total ease of use, the WMS45 is ideal for basic applications including hotels, conference centers, houses of worship, schools, universities and other facilities. It’s also perfect for musicians and bands, especially those who will be travelling in different countries throughout Europe.
Perception wireless transmitters HT45 and PT45 are powered using a just one single alkaline, lithium or Ni-MH rechargeable battery, providing up to 12 hours of use with lithium batteries.
The PW45 Systems are available in a variety of configurations for live music, instrumental, sports and presentation use including handheld, headworn and lavalier mic options. Packages include the Vocal sets with a dynamic cardioids capsule, the Instrumental set, with the PT45 and an included guitar cable, the PW45 Sports set with C544 and the PW45 Presentation set with CK99.
