While the Wimbledon winners are yet to be decided, the world’s best tennis players came together at Stade Roland-Garros for the 2016 French Open, RF Transmission s.a. was responsible for providing complete wireless coverage for the Grand Slam Championship.
To ensure there were no double faults in signal coverage, RF Transmission took to the court with Wisycom for the 15 day tournament.
Bernard Scyeur, CEO of RF Transmission says: “The sensitivity, selectivity, RF power and flexibility of the systems made Wisycom the perfect choice. In addition, since the tournament takes place outdoors, the weather resistant and rugged features of Wisycom’s equipment were ideal.”
Wisycom’s MRK-960 wireless microphones (pictured) and MPR50-IEM in ear monitoring receivers were used for journalist’s interrupt for broadcasts, which were transmitted over the entire site and also as an extra TV set on the top of centre court. The MAT288 diversity matrix combiners were used to select between the six zones where the journalists were interviewing tennis players.
By using Wisycom equipment, Scyeur and his team were able to reduce the total number of antennas due to the receiver sensitivity, low noise of the MAT288 diversity matrix combiners and 100mW transmission power of the MTH400 handheld transmitter.
