Invisible Waves™ Revolutionizes the Way Pro Audio Does Wireless
The Kaltman Creations LLC Product Development Team works tirelessly to solve the biggest dilemmas facing pro audio wireless users: RF interference and signal dropouts. Their award-winning Invisible Waves™ line of innovative RF spectrum analyzers, interference eliminating antennas, and frequency coordination tools are best noted for their affordability, user-friendly interfaces, and revolutionary “first of its kind” technology.
Kaltman Creations is proud to introduce yet another “World’s First” with the launch of the RF-Compass™ – the world’s first automated antenna tracker system for wireless microphones and IEM equipment. This new addition to Kaltman Creations’ Invisible Waves™ brand brings cutting edge automation technology into the pro audio wireless arena, with an automated antenna tracking system that will improve the links between your wireless transmitters and receivers. In 2011 Kaltman Creations LLC introduced the CPAntenna™, lauded the ‘best antenna for a consistent mic-to-receiver link.’ The revolutionary RF-Compass™ antenna tracking system takes that consistent link one step further by always keeping your antenna pointed directly at your wireless transmitter, regardless of where the performer may move.
Kristin Kaltman made the announcement today, stating,
“The RF-Compass™ was the natural next step for our Invisible Waves™ product line. Typical paddle antennas and helical antennas have a beam pattern of 60 – 120 degrees, which seems like good coverage until your performer moves outside of the antenna’s ‘line of sight.’ This causes signal gain to decrease pretty dramatically, exposing you to potential interference and drop outs that can seriously compromise your wireless production quality. Equipping your directional antennas with the ability to pan and rotate to track your performers’ movements just makes sense- it eliminates the ‘wireless risk’ without eliminating your wireless altogether. It is as close to hard wired as wireless can get!”
The RF-Compass™ system consists of two parts: the RF-Compass™ servo-controlled automatic panning device and a 5.8GHz multi-channel miniature transmitter called the RF-Beacon™. The RF-Beacon™ includes a belt pack mounting clip, but it is also small enough to simply be carried in a performer’s pocket, clipped onto a belt, or sewn into a costume. With your performer carrying the Beacon, the servo unit is able to bi-angulate the signal and pans around to follow the transmission source. Your UHF antenna is mounted on top allowing it to also rotate to follow the movement of the performer and its own wireless transmitter.
The RF-Compass™ Servo Unit mounts to any standard microphone stand, and is compatible with any paddle or flat-panel directional antenna (including the Invisible Waves™ CPAntenna™). The Servo Unit is able to rotate up to 360 degrees, and will precisely track the location of the RF-Beacon™ transmitter within an operating distance of over 250 feet. Each RF-Compass™ unit and directional antenna is dedicated to one specific performer, but up to 40 RF-Compass™ units may be used simultaneously without interference. For A/B diversity, two Servo Units may share the same Beacon channel.
Ms. Kaltman closed her announcement with high praise for the Invisible Waves™ brand, proudly stating,
“Invisible Waves™ has grown leaps and bounds in the past several years, and the once-small product line now includes PC-based and tablet-based RF analyzers, antennas that have virtually eliminated interference in live productions, pocket-sized RF frequency meters, and RF filtering technology that has truly revolutionized the way we look the radio frequency spectrum. The RF-Compass™ compliments this already well-rounded product line, adding unsurpassed security to wireless productions in this age of worsening RF congestion.”
The RF-Compass™ System starts at $598 (1 Servo Unit and 1 RF-Beacon™), with packages including a compatible IWxCPAntenna™ starting at $725, and will be available to ship in February 2017.
