NORTHFIELD, OH--Stage Research will unveil an important new feature for its RF Guru product at the 2010 USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology) Conference & Stage Expo in Kansas City, Missouri, March 30-April 3. The upgrade has been developed in collaboration with Lectrosonics, which will be sharing the Stage Research booth at the show.

RF Guru is a coordination tool targeted to anyone dealing with wireless microphones. Designed to find the best combination of wireless mic frequencies to be used at a venue and alleviate intermod (i.e., interference) problems, it calculates based on existing mics, area TV stations, user-entered known bad frequencies and even mic data from nearby neighboring venues. “People tell us RF Guru is what they’ve been waiting for,” says Stage Research cofounder Carlton Guc.

RF Guru informs wireless mic users setting up their systems of the maximum possible optimum frequencies they can safely use without interference, and it tells those with an existing wireless mic setup of any problems that might lead to intermod. “RF Guru is a unique and invaluable tool for choosing wireless microphones for a new production or event and for testing for problems in a production that already has chosen frequencies,” Guc reports.

Now RF Guru introduces the ability to scan the airwaves for frequencies that may affect RF performance. Using the Lectrosonics VR series of wireless microphones, RF Guru will scan all frequency ranges and database frequencies that seem to be problematic. RF Guru will then use that data to find the best wireless frequencies to use in that space.

“Instead of employing scanners that cost thousands of dollars, what you really want to do is to test using the same system that will be used for wireless reception,” notes Guc. “Scanning the space using equipment that’s in the space will give you a better read of what’s happening than a generic scanner standing in the middle of the floor.”

“We’re excited about combining our two systems,” says Karl Winkler, director of business development at Lectrosonics. “We have let our customers know that scanning with RF Guru and your actual antenna/receiver setup gives you information you can’t get from an external scanner. That translates to a big advantage in the field.”
