WMAS

Wireless Multi-Channel Audio Systems

With their broadband audio transmission, Wireless Multi-Channel Audio Systems (WMAS) open up exciting perspectives for digital wireless microphones and digital in-ear monitoring systems in live audio events as well as theatre and broadcasting installations.

Sennheiser’s implementation of WMAS will truly be a game-changer in wireless audio, featuring bidirectional bodypacks, a space-saving central unit that can handle up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs, the promise of easy range and system extension, spectrum-saving workflows and easier re-use of frequencies.

Redundancy in Sennheiser’s Adaption of WMAS Technology

Whenever game-changing technology is introduced, wherever unchartered technical territory is explored, “what if” questions and comparisons with conventional technology are the rule and not an exception. In our information sessions and talks with industry colleagues about Wireless Multichannel Audio Systems, or WMAS for short, we found “redundancy” to be a topic of particular interest.
 
Dr Sebastian Georgi is one of the system engineers for the WMAS system that is currently being developed by Sennheiser. For more than 10 years, he has been conducting research into wireless broadband techniques and how to specifically tailor them to professional audio applications. Georgi did his PhD thesis at Hamburg University of Technology in the field of OFDM. Georgi has a strong affiliation to music and plays the bassoon in a semi-professional orchestra in Hannover.
