Point Source Double Confidence Microphones Used at AIPAC Conference

Point Source Audio’s CO2 Confidence were used to double mic speakers at the 2019 AIPAC Policy Conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center last month in Washington D.C. 

Over 18,000 people attended the three-day conference and included members of Congress, students and synagogue delegations. The guest speaker roster was over 400 and the audio used 120 channels of wireless mics. Live interviews got backup from 40 Point Source redundancy headsets.

Maryland Sound Industries (MSI) provided their client, Viva Creative, 40 of Point Source Audio’s CO2 Confidence headset mics for use with the RF systems that were used for the event. Given the amount of RF which, in addition to microphones, included IEMs, broadcast and security channels, the chance of interference was very real and made frequency coordination and backup or redundancy options vital.

MSI noted the increased speed and ease of changing the PSA mics constantly with the large array of talent at the conference. The CO2 Confidence Collection, a new class of wireless microphones, all have dual elements, each measuring 3mm that offers built-in redundancy.

The CO2 mics also integrate two new features in miniature microphones: IP 57 waterproof construction and the “unbreakable” headset boom bendable to 360 degrees to bolster durability.
