More about the new Deity Mics and Wireless systems
Last week, Andrew Jones from Deity Microphones sat down with Thomas Popp from Video Mantis. They tested the soon to be released microphones and also quickly ‘gossiped’ about the possibility of a new wireless system.
Some interesting quotes:
It is technically in development for about 2.5 years. So by the time we will release it, you know we put a lot of thought into this. We are coming with features from day one, that you are gonna see and go; “why didn’t nobody else do this?”
It is gonna be 2.4 Ghz. We don’t wanna make 500 SKUs for all the different countries. People have said, 2.4 is for consumers. But we have done some research on what people have done now with 2.4 Ghz. Most is under 10 mW. That is pathetic, let’s be honest. There is a brand with a 5 mW system. No wonder people are complaining about the range. They are underpowered and have terrible antennas. We know Wifi has the distance. When you put some proper power and antennas behind it, Wifi is not really an issue. But wireless microphones in the same frequency all of a sudden are? Why?
