Kaltman Creations LLC has introduced RF-intermodPRO, software that aids in calculating, predicting and identifying intermodulation interference of wireless devices, under the Invisible Waves product banner. The intermod software is designed for professional audio wireless microphone users, AV installers of wireless devices, frequency coordinators, and broadcasters.

The PC-based product refines and simplifies the process of identifying intermodulation distortion (IMD) frequencies in a given RF spectrum, and is available as a stand-alone PC-based software product ($450) or as a plug-in option for the Invisible Waves RF Command Center (discounted for new and current RF Command Center users at $275).

Intermodulation distortion is created when two or more transmission frequencies mix together and form new additional signals. Sometimes referred to as "spurious emissions," these newly created frequencies are harmonic as well as the sum and difference of the original frequency. These newly generated frequencies may be strong enough to cause interference to any transmitter that tries to occupy the same RF-spurious emissions space.

The new RF-intermodPRO graphically displays onscreen the predicted locations of these intermod components and assists in the frequency coordination process. Based on the user’s selection of transmitter models from a device library or custom inventory list, the software will advise the user on the best selection of transmitters/frequencies.

Additionally, based on zip code entry, the software automatically defines and identifies unusable RF spectrum spaced around local DTV channels and other local interference. This software offers intuitive ease-of-use, "One Click" group calculations, Click, Drag, and Place spectral graphical representation, custom TX inventory profiles, DTV blocks, and stable reliability.

As a plug-in, the RF-intermodPRO works in conjunction with the RF Command Center’s Frequency Coordinator, scanning the local RF environment in real time, identifying open and usable RF spectrum, and at the same time performing real-world intermod calculations. When the RF-intermodPRO is used as a plug-in with the RF Command Center, the combination becomes the most powerful RF coordination solution available.
