The Sennheiser business development specialist will address a session on spectrum reallocation and the implications for PMSE at PLASA Focus: Leeds next week.

Presented by BEIRG and supported by ISCE, the wireless systems event will take place on 20 April from 3-4pm in the Bury Theatre.

Alan March (pictured, inset) – who, in addition to his Sennheiser role, is on the steering committee of BEIRG – will explore current developments in UK spectrum policy and the forthcoming transition for PMSE (Programme Making & Special Events ) users from Channel 69 to Channel 38.

He will also discuss a variety of issues and practical considerations surrounding the various wireless telegraphy licences for wireless microphone applications.

Among many other manufacturers to make moves in this area, Sennheiser UK recently announced the full availability of its new G3 GB systems (homepage image). The G3 GB frequency range variant covers all of Channel 38 and as many ‘future proofed’ interleaved frequencies above Channel 38 as its 42 MHz (from 606-648 MHz) tuning range will allow.

One month left to apply for PMSE funding

With less than a month to go until the deadline, approximately 25% of licensed Channel 69 users have registered for the UK Government funding scheme to help the PMSE community adjust to forthcoming spectrum reallocation.


PLASA Focus this week

A number of evening events have been added to the 2011 edition of PLASA Focus: Leeds, which begins tomorrow (19 April) at the Royal Armouries Museum. Once again, the event will include a busy seminar programme.


Audio-Technica to host PLASA Focus seminar

The manufacturer’s PLASA Focus: Leeds seminar event - presided over by Audio-Technica product and training specialist Logan Helps - will aim to help attendees understand a range of issues surrounding forthcoming spectrum reallocation in the UK.


PMSE clarity grows but spectrum war continues

After several challenging years, wireless system sales are expected to grow this year as the outlook for PMSE users assumes greater clarity. But, as David Davies reports, there are still many battles to be fought in the RF spectrum war.


Forward to the future

Former chairman/CEO of EMI Music UK & Ireland and current BPI chairman, Tony Wadsworth, will be among those addressing the future of the music industry at The Great Escape convention in Brighton next month.
