Shure Supports New Legislation to Protect Wireless Microphone Users From Interference

The President and CEO of Shure Incorporated, Sandy LaMantia, today expressed the Company’s strong support for legislation recently introduced by Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) that proposes to protect 13 different classes of wireless microphone users from interference that could result from the operation of new devices that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved for frequencies (known as the “white spaces?) currently occupied by wireless microphone users.

“Shure thanks and applauds Congressman Rush for his very thoughtful and balanced approach to the white spaces issue,? said LaMantia. “New white space devices and wireless microphone users can certainly coexist in the white spaces if the new FCC policy reflects an appreciation for the different classes of wireless microphone users who deserve protection from interference.?

The Rush legislation, H.R. 4353, would require the FCC to provide access to an electronic database where wireless microphone users will register their frequencies, thereby protecting their operation from interference from signals transmitted from the newly approved white spaces devices. The 13 classes of wireless microphone users in the Rush bill include amusement parks, arenas, convention centers, educational facilities, fairgrounds, government facilities, Houses of Worship, lodging facilities, museums, recording studios, restaurants, stadiums, and theaters.

“Congressman Rush’s bill simply and comprehensively identifies the professional classes of wireless microphone use and calls for their protection from interference by new devices,? said Mark Brunner, Shure’s Senior Director of Global Brand Management. “The general public is often unaware how common wireless microphones have become in everyday American life. This legislation spells it out and calls for continuity.?
