The What Else: The digital two-channel receiver works across a switching bandwidth of 244MHz (470–714MHz), which is covered by three transmitter versions (470–558 MHz, 550–638MHz, and 630–718MHz). the multichannel system will work with a single pair of antennas. “With Digital 6000, we have brought the key benefits of our benchmark Digital 9000 system to a two-channel receiver and associated handheld and bodypack transmitters,” said Tom Vollmers, product manager at Sennheiser. “The series is an ideal choice for touring and rental companies, theater and musical productions, broadcasting, houses of worship, and for high-profile corporate customers. ” To improve reliability, Digital 6000 employs true bit diversity, transmission error correction, and additional intelligent error concealment. True bit diversity helps ensure better reception quality than would be possible with other diversity techniques. While switching diversity and true diversity use the RF signal of a single antenna or the audio signal of a single reception path, respectively, true bit diversity uses both reception paths and combines.
ACCESSIBILITY improvements will be made at a popular community facility in Cam thanks to a £6,000 grant from the Gazette. GL11 Community Hub, which was formed in 2001 following the closure of the family centre on the same site, provides a range of social events and training sessions for people living in the area. It applied for funding through the Gannett Foundation UK, set up by the Gazette’s publishers Newsquest, which awards grants annually. The money will go towards a major £50,000 renovation of the centre to make it more accessible. Three quarters of the funds will be provided through a grant from The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust, with remainders being sourced through other grants. “The money from Gannett will provide half of the remainder of what we need for the whole project,” Indigo Redfern, the hub’s manager, told the Gazette. “We’ve already started some parts of the project including building ramps and we’ve also prepared the ground for a lift to be installed. Since joining the organisation three years ago, Indigo has worked on several schemes to improve the facility.
