HME Spectrum Friendly technology prevents conflict in 2.4GHz range
Digital wireless intercom maker HME’s DX Series systems now feature Spectrum Friendly technology, designed to help maintain interference-free operation in the increasingly crowded 2.4GHz frequency band. This new technology enables broadcast production crews to avoid frequency conflicts by designating the 2.4GHz operating frequency range as low-, high- or full-band.
The increasing use of the 2.4GHz industry scientific and medical (ISM) wireless spectrum is attributed to its being globally available and license free. While generally not a problem when separated, multiple applications and multiple users of the same applications in close proximity can result in additional risk for trouble-free operation. The new Spectrum Friendly technology helps ensure that HME products do not add interference to the spectrum for other essential wireless services in the vicinity, such as DMX lighting. As a result, neighboring applications using the 2.4GHz band can better coexist, while the number of possible wireless headset users increases.
