As broadcasters continue to differentiate themselves through live programing and events, intercom is gaining more influence now than ever. This is especially true for large arena events where mobile crews demand the freedom of wireless connectivity. But as RF technology grows, the 2.4GHz band is becoming saturated.
To help overcome congestion, the 5GHz band has been made internationally available. But this isn’t just another frequency band, it has some incredible properties, and its entry into SHF offers broadcasters new and interesting methods of providing better communications for mobile crews.
Although 5GHz shares the RF spectrum with Wi-Fi, use of 5GHz is not limited to Wi-Fi, and vendors dedicated to streaming reliable audio over the airwaves instead focus on optimizing transmission for audio. Specifically, this means keeping latency low and maintaining accurate audio delivery. Audio streaming intercom solutions are based on a specific 5GHz use-case to maintain high quality audio, as opposed to Wi-Fi which provides for the generalized data delivery solutions and with it potentially increased latency and dropout.
This Essential Guide explains the restrictions of the 2.4GHz band and why many are seeing the outstanding opportunities for 5GHz. Signal optimizing methods are now available to improve wireless intercom coverage for broadcasters throughout the world and are discussed in great depth.
Uncovering some of the major advantages of 5GHz, this Essential Guide discusses its directional capabilities including constructive interference, signal polarization, and how we can use multipathing to our advantage to improve reception at a lower transmitter power.
Sponsored by Clear-Com, this Essential Guide provides a practical guide to 5GHz intercom and how to get the best out of the spectrum for improved audio quality to help deliver excellent communications.
