Sound Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that AKG’s WMS 450 wireless range is now available in the UK on frequencies covering Channel 38.
Transmitter options include the HT 450 handheld, with a choice of AKG’s D 5 dynamic or C 5 condenser capsules or the PT 450 pocket transmitter, with C 555 L headworn microphone, C 407 L lavalier microphone, or MKG L instrument cable.
Both transmitters have an LCD display which indicates all important system data at a glance, including the selected frequency, available battery time, low battery warning and the current transmission mode. Up to 8 hours operation is possible from a single AA battery. Charging contact allow the transmitters to be used with the optional CU 400 charging unit.
The true-diversity SR 450 transmitter features Auto Setup mode, where the receiver will scan the available bands, find an interference-free channel, and transmit the related frequency data to the assigned transmitter via infrared. This function significantly reduces the time it takes to set up a multichannel system. A Rehearsal function is provided for identifying RF dead-spots.
The back-lit display clearly indicates all important system parameters, warning the user of critical conditions from a distance including audio clipping, RF and battery status.
WMS 450 is compatible with AKG’s range of antennas, antenna splitters and power supplies.
Channel 38 (606-614 MHz) is the dedicated replacement for channel 69 (854-862 MHz) and, along with frequencies in channels 39 and 40, is currently available on a shared licence basis for PMSE (programme-making and special events) use across the UK. Channel 69 will not be available for PMSE use after 2012.
The AKG WMS 450 is available now priced from £450 RRP ex VAT.
