NILES, IL, JANUARY 15, 2010 – On the heels of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) order that the operation of wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, and related equipment in the 700 MHz band will not be permitted after June 12, 2010, Shure Incorporated reiterated its commitment to assist wireless system users with the transition.

“We’re pleased that the FCC has issued a firm transition date for 700 MHz wireless equipment,? said Mark Brunner, Senior Director Global Brand Management. “In anticipation of the post-DTV transition UHF landscape, Shure has been moving its product lines away from the 700 MHz band for the better part of a decade, and in recent years we have increased our information outreach to the user community, including very attractive trade-in rebate programs. Complying with this firm date will still be challenging for some users, but we remain committed to making the transition as easy as possible for them under the circumstances. It’s time for one final push to prevent interference with the new users of the spectrum.? more

Addressing today’s economic environment!

With industry (Tradeshow and Event Services) revenues down thirty (30%) to fifty (50%) percent, real unemployment closer to twenty (20%) percent (BLS rate (10%) PLUS short-term and long-term “discouraged workers?), and GDP down four (4%) percent, it’s extremely important to consider how one’s organization is going to adjust and overcome these issues.

Unfortunately, the talk of coming out of the recession is still just an emotional response. Capital investment and lending (aka GROWTH) have come to a near standstill. Instead companies (aka clients) are still contracting; shrinking sales, layoffs, budget cuts, etc. New product development (and “introduction?) has also slowed dramatically (lack of capital investment) or is being “stretched? over longer periods with fewer products coming to market. Sales and marketing budgets are also being trimmed. The emotional influence driving these actions/decisions is FEAR. more
