Noting that the details of the rules have yet to come out, Sennheiser responded to the FCC white spaces ruling.
In a statement on its Web site, the company said: “We were surprised that the commission acted so quickly despite the erratic performance of white space device prototypes tested by the FCC’s own engineers. However, it is encouraging that the FCC press release and each … commissioner’s statements cite safeguards to protect wireless mics from interference. Clearly, the voice of our industry has had some impact.
“We hope that the rules are drafted to ensure adequate protection. Nevertheless, this ruling will pose new challenges for the pro audio industry, requiring high-quality gear operated with best practices.”
Sennheiser said it would continue to stand with its customers, industry groups and “even our competitors” to remind the FCC and legislators of the necessity to maintain content production quality.
