APWPT to host Dubai meeting
UAE: The Association of Professional Wireless Production Technologies (APWPT) is set to host a regional PMSE (Program Making and Special Event) user meeting in Dubai to discuss spectrum allocation and management for wireless PMSE devices and to enter into meaningful and productive conversations with the national government and local PMSE users in the UAE. The meeting will take place at the Meydan Hotel on August 30.
APWPT is the international not-for-profit organisation that represents users and manufacturers of wireless production tools such as wireless microphones. Professional event production requires a lot of frequencies (radio spectrum) to run wireless microphones, in-ear monitoring, audio links, intercom, wireless video cameras and wireless data links for remote control management of lighting and sound. Today available spectrum becomes scarcer and scarcer. As a result, radio frequency spectrum allocation for wireless PMSE devices is critical in order to mitigate the potential impact of reduced operational bandwidth on the flourishing Culture and Creative industry, which is a significant contributor to the economy.
‘To ensure the further growth of the tourism and hospitality industry here in the UAE, it is important to preserve the frequency resources necessary for the production of events,’ said Matthias Fehr, president of APWPT. ‘Not doing so will have catastrophic consequences for all upcoming events such as the Asian Cup 2019 as well as the EXPO 2020. We at APWPT would like to present information we have learned in similar talks in other countries and during our work in a large number of international working groups including ITU, CEPT and ETSI.’
The meeting will cover the applications of PMSE and examples of typical local spectrum regulations, the effect of spectrum changes in the 700MHz band, the alternative radio spectrum for PMSE and PMSE as an object of science. APWPT will also present information it has learned in similar talks in other countries and during its work in a large number of international working groups.
The organisation hopes the meeting will allow it to have a meaningful and productive conversation with the national government and local PMSE users.
