Since the time that I received my order for the Invisible Waves X RF Command Center, I have been sincerely impressed with the quality of the product and most importantly the level of service and knowledge that company President Mark Kaltman has displayed.
My first experience was at frequency coordination for Vanderbilt University. While the average person may not even think about the need of the coordination of wireless for football events, indeed it is a requirement. After setting up the RF Command Center for the first time at the stadium, it was VERY clear that even when using frequency coordination software, you had better take real time readings at the venue to make sure that you don’t have any UFO’s (Unidentified Frequency Object, thanks Mark!!) that could ruin the event for everyone. This feature alone is well worth the investment in the product.
This product has many features and functions, including one that allows you to listen to UFO’s (still can’t get over that) just by clicking on the RF Coordinator screen. Recording the waterfall of scans gives you the ability to adjust almost any parameter to suit your needs. And last, but not least, it has a GUI that WORKS!!!!
If you can’t tell by now, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! It has made my life much easier and saved numerous clients thousands of dollars. In a time when the wireless market is telling every user that they have to buy new wireless, this tool allows you to find the open spaces to place a transmitter to remain clean and dry.
One word of warning though, know that the first time you walk up to the TV truck and let them know that the sideline talent has an unapproved frequency and it has to be shut down or changed, be prepared to get the “oh, no, I just got busted” look.
The real truth is if you take wireless serious you should own this product! PERIOD!!
