ORLANDO, Florida – Setting the stage for the next level in wireless live performance, HARMAN’s AKG has debuted its WMS 470 wireless system at Infocomm. Designed for complete ease of use, WMS 470 incorporates a vast number of upgrades from previous AKG lines and delivers outstanding performance and reliable operation to users.

WMS 470’s new automatic frequency setup function immediately finds and displays all available channels, making the system ideal for less experienced users to operate. Before opening a channel, the pilot tone function will prevent unwanted startup noise – the receiver will only open the audio if the pilot tone is detected.

“HARMAN’s AKG engineers have worked tirelessly to ensure WMS 470 was the absolute best system for our customers,? said Wolfgang Fritz, product marketing manager – tour sound, AKG. “We completely understand the challenges live sound professionals face in the line of fire and with WMS 470, we help relieve these tensions with the most advanced technology that’s also simple to manage.?

WMS 470 operates up to 16 channels simultaneously within the same frequency band and up to 48 channels by using multiple frequency bands. The transmitters are powered using a single alkaline, lithium or Ni-MH rechargeable battery, providing up to 14 hours of use with lithium batteries. The WMS 470 handheld microphone has a built-in dipole antenna to ensure reliable transmission with 50 mW output power, even if the user covers the antenna with their hand.

“Our 400 Series has become one of the most successful wireless systems on the market and the WMS 470 continues that lineage,? continued Fritz. “With WMS 470, artists and engineers from live music, tour sound, house of worship, educational and corporate environments will have a reliable, yet robust technology at their fingertips.?

The WMS 470 is available in a variety of configurations for live music, instrumental, sports and presentation use including handheld, headworn and lavalier mic options. Packages include the WMS 470 D5 and C5 handheld sets, the WMS 470 Instrumental set, the WMS 470 Sports set and the WMS 470 Presentation set.

The WMS 470 wireless microphone systems are available at a suggested retail price of $449 to $529.
