What you need to know about wireless audio

Wireless microphones are essential to modern production values. From live performances to big events, corporate conferences to your local house of worship, wireless systems are everywhere.

The world’s first model was the Shure Vagabond, which was first introduced in 1953. Early designs were primitive, but thanks to modern and more affordable technology, we now see wireless microphones and in-ear monitors used by virtually every live event across the globe. Irrespective of their venue or event, uninterrupted high quality audio is critical. Any interference experienced that causes audio failure has severe repercussions for both the production and audience alike.

For wireless systems to work without interruption, we need access to clean RF (radio frequency) spectrum; this is fundamental rule number one. Until recently, we’ve enjoyed access to relatively large amounts of high-quality spectrum for the operation of wireless systems. However, recent years have turned the entire industry on its head. Our ability to use wireless systems in any capacity is now under immense strain, and there could soon be insufficient clean spectrum available to reliably operate wireless equipment across the UK.
