In order to provide an interference-free show and ensure all wireless activities went off as planned, PWS used the Shure Axient Wireless, UHF-Rs and PSM-1000 series IEMs. In addition, the team employed 3,732 receivers with 5,200 transmitters, as well as a range of wireless gear from Sennheiser. In the bodypack diversity mode, the Axient system was able to provide automatic fail-over protection for the referees’ microphones. Versacom provided a mixture of wireless intercoms, including HME PRO850 and BTR800s from Telex, for the event.

PWS Helical Antennas

The PWS team used a combination of Domed Helical Antennas and original PWS Helical Antennas for all of the ATK wireless systems on the field. A new standard in wireless antenna performance and physical presence, the Domed Helical Antenna combines the circular polarization configuration pioneered by the company’s original Helical, but with the unit sealed within a unique new compact “domed” design. This is designed for optimum connectivity between multichannel wireless microphone, in-ear and intercom wireless systems. PWS’ Domed Helical is constructed from rugged polycarbonate to hold up to considerable abuse on the road.

In addition, PWS’ expert crew of Eskew, John Garrido and Brooks Schroeder were on-site to keep the high volume of RF signal usage in check and to ensure frequencies maintained solid signals. They were also available to troubleshoot any potential issues.
