The GM gooseneck range includes compact 100mm goosenecks with mini shock-mounts up to 500mm versions with 3-pin XLR connectors. New BM boundary microphones are some of the most discreet and attractive on the market and the OM overhead range offer vari-ous mounting plates and cable lengths to suit almost all applications. Features including new high quality finishes, redeveloped housings and slimmer gooseneck stems make the Classis range an attractive and practical installation option.
Using revolutionary technology, a combination of beyerdynamic RFi proof microphones and high definition Biamp echo cancellation ensures that you enjoy a crisp, clear conference every time. A meeting is loosely defined as two or more people coming together – but Biamp equipment is helping redefine where and how meetings take place. From broadcasting company meetings across a 500-acre facility to pioneering new sound possibilities in convention and conference centres, Biamp products facilitate new configurations to connect people better. Crisp, clear audio is now available for any distance conferencing application.
The needs of conference or discussion systems within the corporate sector, local government, education and judicial environments have evolved to a very high level with the need for systems to be portable and flexible. Wireless technology has now also become a major factor simplifying installation within both fixed and temporary situations and the use of digital transmission provides encryption necessary to keep sensitive discussion secure. The MCW-D system from beyerdynamic offers you all options in one flexible package.

The UK government’s media regulator OFCOM has announced a change to the frequencies available for UHF analogue wireless microphones in the UK. From July 2012 onwards any wireless microphones operating in the 800 MHz spectrum (television broadcast Channel 69, which uses frequencies 854MHz to 862MHz) in the UK must cease operation. The one exception to this is microphones using the 800MHz spectrum in London, where they must cease use from October 2012. Most radio microphones sold in the past 10 years will operate in the Channel 69 frequency range and therefore the majority of wireless microphone users could be affected by this change.
So why do

Because of the ever expanding market of mobile phone services in Europe, the decision to re-allocate large chunks of radio frequency spectrum has been taken. These spectrums have been cleared of their traditional users (of which wireless microphone users are one) and the spectrums put up for auction. The auction for the 800MHz spectrum has ended and mobile phone services using these frequencies will commence in late 2012.

69 - what can
OFCOM has set aside frequencies in and around Channel 38 (frequencies 606MHz to 614MHz, previously used by radio telescopes in the UK) for all users of current Channel 69 wireless microphone users to migrate to. Radio microphone hardware operating in these frequency ranges is becoming available in the market. Beyerdynamic already has replacement wireless systems available for use in Channel 38, in the form of the OPUS 600-series. These products can lawfully be used from now until 2012 and onwards and are available to purchase from Saville Audio Visual.
A licence for the use of these systems must be purchased from the Joint Frequencies Management Group (http://www.jfmg.co.uk) who are the frequency band manager for wireless microphones in the UK.
if I don’t
Any radio microphones still using frequencies between 854MHz and 862MHz following the change will be faced with interference from the mobile phone services. Furthermore, should any wireless microphones found to be interfering with these mobile phone services, the owners of the microphones may be open to prosecution.
Is there an
Systems using frequencies in the Channel 70 spectrum (863MHz to 865MHz) can still be used after 2012. Channel 70 is immune from the changes occurring to Ch69 and below in the 800MHz spectrum. Many current systems can work in the Channel 70 spectrum - which is licence-free, but only a small number can be used simultaneously. In general, if you need to use more than four at the same time, Channel 38 products would have to be used.
