Kaltman Creations, the North America-based distributor and developer of a range of RF and antenna lines, has set its sights on European and Asian markets following an “overwhelming” response to the 2011 InfoComm launch of its Invisible Waves X RF analyser.

“The exponential growth of wireless products here in the US, coupled with FCC RF spectrum reallocations fuelled the need and success of the Invisible Waves RF Analyzers,” says company president Mark Kaltman. “Now, with the worldwide growth of wireless products, plus the reductions in RF spectrum due to regulatory restrictions, we find that the European and Asian pro-audio markets are gripped with the same ‘RF Space’ challenges.”
 The Invisible Waves X capitalises on the successes of its predecessor by adding a suite of controls providing “world-first” RF analysis, according to Kaltman. Highlighting the array of new features are UFO Alert (Unidentified Frequency Objects) to warn of rogue interference, Click to Listen (listen-in to all RF space) and RF Coordinator to identify usable open RF space. Also included are RF Congestion Scale to gauge the severity of local RF, and RF Level Alert to warn when any catalogued signals fall below assigned thresholds. Other new features are an RF Event/Alarm Recorder and Logger.
 “The Invisible Waves X represents a monumental leap in features and functions designed specifically for pro audio wireless,” Kaltman continues. “I mean, where else can you find a RF analyser that will automatically alarm with the presence of new interference, let you listen-in to your transmitters or provide a master status display of all transmissions; and still function as a true RF spectrum analyser?”
 The IWx analysers are sold as complete kits which include AC adaptor/charger, multiple antennas and a quick USB to PC connection, all enclosed in a pre-configured, laptop-sized, high-impact carrying case. 
 Kaltman Creations, established five years ago and based just outside Atlanta, Georgia, is the exclusive US distributor for the German manufactured test and measurement products of Aaronia. This year the company expanded its inventory by offering its own line of low-frequency antennas under the name LoWavz, as well the Invisible Waves X product.
