Revolabs, which makes wireless audio products, rolled out a new line of wireless microphones with what it calls RF-Armor technology. Company officials said, the new Revolabs RF-Armor Wireless Microphones were "impervious to radio frequency interference," which would allow them to be used around wireless electronic devices known to cause unwanted audio interference, such as GSM mobile phones, smart phones, and others.
Revolabs officials said some of its end users were requesting more RF immunity than its previous wireless microphones provided, although the company said its existing microphones are normally not affected by mobile device noise in average conferencing situations. Apparently some corporations were asking that their wireless microphones tolerate GSM devices placed directly on top of the microphones.
"Revolabs has shipped more than 20,000 microphones and the built-in tolerance for normal GSM noise has proven to be acceptable to most customers," said J.P. Carney, chief operating officer of Revolabs. "However, we have broadened our product line to include an RF-Armor version with exceptionally robust shielding which enables the microphone to operate cleanly even when in direct contact with the noisiest digital devices. More choice is always better for the consumer."
The Revolabs RF-Armor Wireless Microphones are available immediately for $299 apiece in both wearable and tabletop models. The RF-Armor version of the Revolabs Wireless Microphones is backwards compatible with any Revolabs Executive Wireless Microphone System.
The RF-Armor version of the Solo Wearable Wireless Microphone captures sound in an omni-directional pattern, which is different from the standard version of the Solo Wearable Wireless Microphone that uses a cartiod pattern. They require a single/four/eight-channel system.
