Digital Television Affects Wireless Microphones

The imminent introduction of Digital Terrestrial Television in New Zealand by the Freeview consortium will have an impact on wireless microphone users. Parts of the spectrum currently used by wireless mics will be gobbled up by the new TV transmissions, rendering some wireless mics unusable. With full DTT transmission due to commence in April 2008 there is about to be widespread disruption, particularly for wireless mics that  are not able to tune to alternate frequencies.

The Wellington Audio Association (, a body representing largely professional and commercial audio contractors, has formed a steering committee with the intention of lobbying the Ministry of Economic Development on this issue.
