Wireless Audio Systems Manager

RF spectrum coordination for all live performance and broadcast microphones and in ear monitoring transmitters. RF system design, antenna placement and deployment. Contracted to Norwest Productions and working in conjunction with the ceremonies producers, government regulators, Audio Technica, the principal wireless microphone supplier, and broadcasters to provide complex wireless audio systems for what was undoubtedly the greatest show ever. It was a challenging RF environment filled with an ever changing array of pirate broadcasters. The EETT (Greek spectrum regulator) provided RF spectrum monitoring and policing, including roving spectrum monitors and enforcement teams who under Peter’s guidence were instrumental in shutting down one rogue wireless audio transmitter.
