Ultra Wideband Wireless Microphone System Premieres at InfoComm

Audio-Technica showed for the first time the company’s SpectraPulse Ultra Wideband Wireless Microphone System. As part of a dedicated R&D initiative that began nearly 5 years ago, Audio-Technica partnered with Multispectral Solutions, Inc. (MSSI), a company that develops Ultra Wideband systems for communications, radar and geo-positioning, to introduce this new application of UWB technology. A-T says SpectraPulse is the first commercial sound implementation of UWB technology. Recently licensed for commercial use by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Ultra Wideband technology allows the wireless transmission of data in extremely short-duration pulses over a wide spectrum of frequencies.

SpectraPulse bypasses the increasingly congested RF environment and also provides excellent security, says the company. SpectraPulse provides up to 14 simultaneous channels that operate without RF competition, frequency hunting/coordination, white space issues or infringement from other wireless systems or radio sources.
