ClearOne Debuts WS800 M550 RF Range Wireless Microphone System at InfoComm to Comply With New FCC Rules

ClearOne announced a new WS800 M550 Wireless Microphone System that operates in the 537-563 MHz range in response to new FCC rules limiting the use of certain frequencies in North America. The new WS800 M550 model is necessary to give integrators a full range of frequency options as new FCC rules will require any products using the 614-698 MHz range to transition to another frequency in the next two years.

The WS800 Wireless Microphone system includes tabletop, gooseneck, hand-held and belt-pack lavalier models of wireless microphones/transmitters and a base-station receiver with either four or eight channels. With the addition of the new M550 model, the WS800 is now offered in eight frequency ranges.

The WS800 Receivers with built-in Dante technology interoperates with other Dante devices from any supplier, including ClearOne’s CONVERGE Pro 2 and CONVERGE Matrix.

The WS800 line utilizes ClearOne’s 24-bit digital signal processing for unmatched, crystal-clear audio and features 256-bit encryption for robust security. It has the ability to daisy chain up to 32-channels to support large venues and extension antenna kits are available to boost the coverage area. The microphones can be powered by standard or rechargeable AA batteries. A docking station is also available forer  recharging.

Here are all the details.
