RF Venue – Diversity Fin Antenna
The RF Venue – Diversity Fin Antenna with patented Diversity Fin is a multi-purpose antenna for wireless microphones that reduces dropouts using a cross-polarised, hybrid design. It combines one LPDA and one dipole antenna in an orthogonal (right angle) configuration. One element captures vertically polarized waves, and the other horizontally polarized waves—doing the same job as two “shark fin” paddles while greatly improving RF and audio performance.
To use, just connect both the A and B outputs on any antenna distributor or microphone receiver and point toward the stage.
The Diversity Fin has found widespread adoption across multiple pro audio segments for its performance, convenience, space, and cost benefits. From high profile live sound events, to film and TV productions, to routine installations in schools and churches, the Diversity Fin is the ideal all-purpose external antenna for diversity microphone systems of any brand.
Range and Frequency
The range of any wireless system depends on a number of factors, of which antenna type is only one. Antenna placement, noise floor, and interfering signals are by far the most significant factors in determining range. Very few live sound applications exceed antenna to mic distances of 300’. The Diversity Fin will provide the same or slightly better range than paddle/shark fin antennas, under the same RF conditions – which is more than enough for most production scenarios. Those who need longer range should consider the CP Beam.
The Diversity Fin is designed to operate between 470-698 MHz.
Why RF Venue
The regulatory landscape for wireless spectrum worldwide will continue to undergo significant changes as more wireless devices compete for less available spectrum. Wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, two-way radios and other live event wireless systems are adversely affected by this spectrum crowding trend. RF Venue began developing a range of products within the commercial sound equipment industry to reduce signal dropouts and interference for all brands of wireless audio equipment. Dropouts and interference problems have been pervasive for wireless audio systems since their introduction in the 1970s and the deployment of this equipment has always been challenging for live and installed sound system professionals and their clients.
- Compatible across all popular wireless microphone and IEM brands
- Reduce or eliminate single dropouts and interference
- Optimise your wireless system to meet changing spectrum conditions
- Remotely monitor and manage your facility’s RF over time
