  1. The announcement should say "Since Sony and Canon withdrew from the show and many other exhibitors followed their lead, the show has fizzled out. "

    NAB - 2021

    Sony and Canon's announcement that they are withdrawing from the show probably quickly put the show in a cancellation spiral. Once they announced, other vendors likey quickly followed suit and that was the end of that.
  3. Force majeure or not, since communication has ended, it's appropriate to discuss this openly. Perhaps others know what the situation is and can find a resolution. If that doesn't appeal to you, then perhaps send a private message to those who you identified as having a relationship with the person and see if they can provide information or resolution.
  4. Has anybody renewed their expired license? I see that some who originally got a license had an expiration date in 2021. Is anybody maintaining their license or tried to get a license recently? I ask because the local 695 link no longer valid (5 posts previous to mine).
  5. Anybody that has tried to speak through a stadium PA system already knows about this.

  7. I'd be curious about aluminum knobs for the F8. I bought the printed ones https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=zoom+f8+knobs&_sacat=0 and found them to be unusable for a double row mixer. They take up too much space and make it near impossible to use the push buttons and the faders themselves. Low profile and smaller diameter might work. For a single row of faders it's probably not a problem. Kishor Chauhan did this (SD knobs, no longer available), but he never explained how he did it. Zoom faders don't have shafts.
  8. Sound said: "Still I don’t get why it’s possible to send the signal of a single transmitter to three receivers but it’s not possible to pair say four transmitters to a stereo receiver and switch channels just for monitoring. " I'm not well read up on the IEEE 802 standard (wifi), but from what I read I'm guessing this is a limitation of the wifi standard.
  9. Well, no, but UHF is a whole different ball game. The reason 2.4G is so popular with the lower cost systems is that the manufacturers buy chipsets that do all the wifi stuff for them. All the complexities (and it is really complex) of wifi transmission is figured out by vendors that specialize in making chips for the wifi standard. So you buy a chip, connect an antenna to it, send data to it and the chip works out all the complexities. Wifi is a standard that is run by billions of devices. Easy peasy to make a product for wifi, Well, relatively so compared to UHF. UHF wireless audio works in the same spectrum as television channels and in the US, also in a space reserved for wireless microphones. So the UHF wireless has to abide by the FCC rules for this space, which don't allow for the things that wifi does and visa versa. They run under completely different rules. Designing for UHF gets a bit more complex in that the designer has to do most of the work themselves. There isn't a 'billions of devices' market and so chipsets that do the RF stuff don't exist. So there is quite a difference in developing products for UHF vs wifi.
  10. I just bought this. Ok, it has an arm. It's smaller than it looks (8-1/2 x 11). I'm going to mount it off to the side of my cart and use it to put my pad on and rest other bits on it. It might be too light for what you want, but maybe it will give you some ideas. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/KM11520BK--k-and-m-115-2-sheet-music-holder
  11. Saying that the volume of the LTC is 'quite loud' indicates you have the output of the Ultrasync set incorrectly. Check/set the output level of your Ultrasync One - https://support.timecodesystems.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000774372-Set-the-LTC-Output-Level-UltraSync-ONE [edit] - nevermind. I see you already have it set to the lowest level. Still, that leaves one wondering why it sounds so loud. Maybe double check the setting?
  12. Yes. I would not conclude it is the cable. The cable (TCB-53) is specifically made for the application you are describing. It looks like it's properly made, using separate cables until the 3.5mm connector. I'd look elsewhere as suggested by the other posters.
  13. Velour - I'll have to give that a try. Jim - Information you didn't ask for - The reason the Sony pads feel good and wear out is that outer layer is micro-thin. I don't know what it is, but its almost like they painted the foam. If you look at the Sony pads, you see those wrinkles in the pad. You need the wrinkles. It indicates the outer layer is very thin. I don't see wrinkles in the Wicked Cushions. I've tried a few different brands and the only thing that worked pretty well other than Sony was a cheap knock-off from Ali Express that had the wrinkles. They are about 95% as good as the Sony. I don't have a link handy.
  14. I use passive splitters and a bias-T to supply power to the antenna. The advantage being you can optimize how many splits you use and as you say, eliminate one amplifier. Yes, more cables and more boxes.
  15. Indeed, these are very inventive boxes and Deity is breaking new ground. What I'd like to see if it is possible, is some papers on the topic of 2.4G wireless that helps us know when and how to use it. UHF is no panacea, but manufacturers have given us papers on the issues with UHF, they have given us tools to scan the spectrum, they have given us tables to get around the problem. It would be helpful to have some materials that allow us to plan our 2.4G use.
