From an RF perspective, the show ..., 25 Nov 2013 [cached]
From an RF perspective, the show presented a daunting challenge: "We had 200 frequencies we were dealing with - this is a formidable number of radio frequencies in any environment, especially when everything is in UHF," says James Stoffo, RF coordinator of the CMA Awards.
"When James Stoffo, one of the industry's foremost RF consultants, said he would use it on the show, we were especially delighted. Refining technology and partnering with audio professionals to help make the event a seamless experience for engineers and artists is our priority."
Sennheiser Digital 9000: the future of wireless is here Stoffo, who has been navigating challenging wireless terrain in top awards shows, sporting events and large corporate events for more than 30 years, is extremely concerned about the increasing congestion of the RF landscape and sees digital systems such as Digital 9000 as a fundamental solution moving forward: "It is getting almost impossible to organize and coordinate a large production, especially in awards shows that are approaching 200 frequencies.
In addition to the reliability and spectrum efficiencies gained, Stoffo says there is a dramatic increase in audio quality with the Digital 9000 system: "You can absolutely hear the difference.
During Lady Antebellum's performance, lead singer Hillary Scott ventured beyond the stage out into the audience - where RF coverage can be tricky since the primary antenna coverage is on the stage, Stoffo says.
Stoffo, who originally requested a Digital 9000 for testing but instead found himself putting it in the CMA Awards production days later because of its stellar performance, says he encountered zero difficulty integrating it within the rest of the audio system. "I had no issues whatsoever, and in fact was more confident using Digital 9000 than older analog systems," he says.
"I couldn't have done it without Sennheiser," says James Stoffo, "Tim Moore [Sennheiser Artist Relations] came in and was 'on-call' almost as if he was part of our crew.

Professional Wireless Systems was formed in 1992 by James Stoffo, who began consulting and broadcast coordination from his home. Stoffo was his own advisor, engineer, technician and salesman, and it was in these early years of the company that Stoffo honed his skill in developing the simplest solutions in the most restrictive environments.
Stoffo still actively serves the RF industry by continuing to produce innovative solutions for the most demanding applications. He is the author of The ABCs of Wireless and contributor to Wireless Nation.
RF legend James Stoffo advised C3 Presents to contact Professional Wireless Systems for Lollapalooza’s first festival-wide frequency coordination. Wireless microphone, in-ear, and intercom frequencies were coordinated for every single band at all of the event’s eight stages.
