In a coordinated effort with Sennheiser Germany, Sennheiser Canada has opened an RF/equipment service and sales facility in conjunction with the XXI Olympic Winter Games to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, next month.

According to the company, the facility will offer assistance to radio and television broadcasters from all over the world using Sennheiser technology that requires frequency coordination and equipment service. Reportedly, broadcasters should also be able to purchase the company's new 2000 Series wireless systems.

Sennheiser's 2010 Olympic RF coordination facility is scheduled to open on February 6, 2010?six days before the games officially begin?and close a little more than a week later, at the end of the day on February 14th. The company recommends broadcasters contact Sennheiser Canada in advance to secure an appointment. Walk-ins will be accommodated as time allows.

Rob Poretti, Sennheiser Canada's technical consultant, Klaus Willemsen, Germany's global RF specialist, and Gerhard Spyra, Germany's technical consultant, will staff the facility. All three RF specialists are familiar with Sennheiser wireless systems and have decades of experience implementing Sennheiser technology in challenging environments, says the company. Willemsen has provided RF frequency assistance to Olympic broadcasters for 14 years.

"All broadcasters are assigned frequencies prior to their arrival to the games, but with an event this logistically challenging, there are bound to be some questions and issues," said Robert Gé né reux, Sennheiser Canada's director of technical services, in a statement. "Sennheiser recognizes how significant the Olympics are and wants to assist our customers with expertise and equipment to ensure that everything runs smoothly."
