To combat the ever increasingly busy wireless spectrum, AV Strategies has invested in Shure Axient Digital wireless microphones for all our branches. Shure developed the Axient Digital wireless solution to provide superior RF and audio robustness, as well as scalability and connectivity.
Axient Digital provides control for transmitters in a wireless system. Transmitter registration allows users to ensure that only desired units are passing audio, regardless of encryption status or model. Receiver channels can be linked to up to eight transmitters at a time, and the active transmitter can be managed and switched remotely. This enables the sharing of frequencies across transmitters that do not operate simultaneously, which is ideal for monitor mix tech’s that have to manage several bodypacks for their talent, or for presenters at corporate events, who may switch between a handheld or bodypack transmitter. Audio technicians have complete control over the system using Wireless Workbench 6, a powerful software suite offering command and control functionality.
Digital systems also tend to have ‘better audio’ from a dynamic range and frequency perspective because analogue wireless systems compress the dynamic range of the audio in order for it to be carried on a radio wave.
Our objective with any new equipment purchase is to invest in technology that addresses common problems and offers significant benefits to our clients. We are continuously researching the latest technology to ensure your event runs smoothly.
We have recently added the d&b audiotechnik V-Series line array system to our national inventory. Our packages incorporate a mix of V8/V12 mid-highs, V-GSUB subwoofers, Y10P point source loudspeakers for out fills, E8 front fills and D80 amplifiers.
Comprised of both line array systems and point source solutions, the V-Series is the answer for any medium to large scale sound reinforcement application. The 3-way passive loudspeakers all share the same dipolar driver arrangement, while the subwoofers all exhibit d&b cardioid technology. In short, the V-Series is a verifiable recipe for success.
We recently deployed a system in Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum for the Fair at the PNE.
