Radio spectrum and the use of wireless microphones
Pearle* underlines that consistent and reliable high quality sound by wireless microphones is of the essence for many professional live performance shows. Several countries took decisions to provide for mobile BB to access the Ultra High Frequency, leading to an overfragmented use of the radio spectrum. This leads to a competitive disadvantage for the EU live performance sector. Touring productions will avoid Europe if they cannot benefit of a certain extent of harmonised frequencies.
Therefore, Pearle* believes that European harmonized frequencies for (semi) professional use for at least one or two TV channels, would be beneficial for ENG teams and is necessary for international operating companies and artists.
