About RF Venue

CP Beam Antenna Avoid Dropouts with

In-Ear Monitor Systems

After 10,000 wireless projects we’ve seen and heard it all. Here are the key concepts and techniques to prevent dropouts and interference in your in-ear monitor system.

Why do iems drop out anyway?

"We recommend RF Venue to our customers because their products are built with quality and they deliver clean RF frequencies to the microphones and IEM's we install and provide. I am confident in using wireless products since we have started using RF Venue products. Dropouts are near zero for our large corporate events using 30 or more wireless units."

After the initial setup, IEMs generally drop out due to lack of quality signal at the IEM bodypack receiver.       
 

Understanding Polarization

 

For IEM systems, getting good signal to the bodypack receiver is essential. One barrier to great reception is that many belt-pack receivers don’t support diversity reception--which is to say they have only a single antenna. This makes these receivers much more likely to encounter drop-outs and multi-path fades than the dual antenna diversity systems common in microphones and higher end IEMs. The belt-pack is also in motion, and can change orientation depending on body position. Plus, the pack sits beside or behind the talent, requiring the signal to pass through or alongside the performer's body, which is nontransparent for RF energy.

how to set your system up for success

Use a Helical Antenna 

 

Helical antennas are overwhelmingly the antenna of choice for IEM transmission because the circular motion of the RF field emitted distributes the signal through all possible polarization angles. This removes the greatest risk of dropouts, as most IEM belt packs are limited to a single whip antenna.

Use An IEM Combiner

 

Using a combiner is especially important for transmitting devices like IEMs.  Without it, multiple IEM transmitters in a rack, each with their own whip antenna transmitting on top of each other can be a disaster for your system.  These antenna farms create noise and intermod problems that can wreak havoc not only on IEM performance but neighboring wireless microphones as well.  The solution is a clean rack with an IEM combiner and helical antenna.

Coordinate IEM frequencies with wireless mics

 

It’s a simple fact that more wireless devices in the same space makes it more difficult to maintain reliable performance.  More devices require finding more empty space in which to operate. And in this era of shrinking spectrum, empty space is at a premium and demand for wireless keeps climbing. In addition, every time you turn on another transmitter you increase the amount of intermod in your workspace.

Use bandpass filters for wireless mics when running IEMs

 

Bandpass filters allow the frequencies inside the bandpass range to pass through unaffected but block RF from outside the bandpass (namely the signals from the IEMs) from ever getting into the wireless mic receivers. The result is that as far as the wireless mic receivers are concerned, the IEMs don’t exist as they will be knocked down by about 40dB.
