THE WHITE SPACE RULING: CHICKEN LITTLE CAN TAKE A DEEP SIGH OF RELIEF

joe_ciaudelli_new.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – NOVEMBER 2008: Following the recent ruling by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding proposed “white space” consumer devices, Sennheiser is taking steps to assure users of wireless audio products that the sky will not fall after February 17th (the deadline for the digital TV conversion). The anticipation of these changes has caused a great deal of anxiety for many customers. However, not only have a variety of safeguards been put in place by the FCC ruling to help prevent interference between the unlicensed consumer devices and RF wireless microphones, but Sennheiser is launching enhanced customer service and support programs. As a first level, Sennheiser is offering a free initial consultation service via phone to answer questions from users or dealers and to address each individual situation. Anyone wishing to receive a call from an RF specialist regarding the operation of any wireless mic or monitoring equipment after February 17, 2009 may sign-up on the company’s dedicated website www.sennheiserusa.com/spectrumreallocation. Higher level services will include on-site spectrum analysis, frequency coordination, as well as service contracts. more
