Shure has received many requests for recommendations on the best ways to clean and disinfect our products. Please note that Shure cannot provide advice regarding what disinfectant methods are effective against the Covid-19 virus; any such question should be directed to appropriate disease control experts. The information on this site relates solely to general information for cleaning methods for microphones. Please note that the observations below do not imply any guarantee against damage to the product, but are based on the best information we have at this time.
When cleaning bodypack transmitters and receivers, and lavalier microphones, there are two main considerations to keep in mind. Typically, most lavaliers risk potential damage from excess liquid ingress but can tolerate a variety of chemicals. Conversely, bodypacks are fairly resistant to liquid ingress but can react poorly with certain chemicals. For this reason, you will see a shorter list of chemicals recommended for cleaning bodypacks than for lavaliers.
The Global Entertainment Technology Show Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt am Main has been the European meeting place for companies and professionals from the media and event-technology sector for over 25 years. The portfolio of the trade fair includes solutions for the fields of lighting, sound and stage, as well as innovations for broadcasting, production, display, signage, projection, conferencing and collaboration. Prolight + Sound has been the partner of IABM since 2019. Against this background, the organisers continue to increase their commitment to the world of AV media technology. Accordingly, Prolight + Sound offers an extensive further-development programme, focusing on subjects such as IP-based broadcasting, interoperability between AV devices and the increasingly complex landscape of new standards and specifications. Prolight + Sound is held annually in the spring at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre.
As we reach the conclusion of the SMPTE process for first round of video and audio transports over IP David Atkins (Technical Director, Suitcase TV) looks at the next steps in the JT-NM roadmap and examines what’s the best way to proceed for a number of use cases. What does SMPTE ST 2110 do for us and where else in the workflow can we use it for non production sources such as talkback and IFB? We consider the additional workflows needed to make production possible from talkback/IFB, metadata and signalling for GPI’s and tallies. What protocols are proposed or already exist that we can re-purpose to implement this and how do they fit into the JT-NM reference architecture and the infrastructure already implemented by many suppliers?
