June 2017

The next meeting of the AES Melbourne Section will be on Monday 5th June at 7:30pm at
The SAE Institute Lecture Theatre, 235 Normanby Rd South Melbourne.

James Waldron and Jason Grbevski of Sennheiser Australia will present on the topic:

Wireless Microphones – current technologies

Wireless microphones have continued to evolve since their introduction in 1957.
The latest developments see a wide range of different approaches to delivering a quality audio link with reliability and ease of operation. Systems today offer “no operator intervention”, uncompressed full CD quality digital audio, FM, QPSK and FSK modulation, and tiny form factors not much bigger than an XLR connector.
James and Jason will explore some of the different technologies employed for wireless audio transmission and cover off the latest developments in spectrum affairs for wireless microphones.
