Shure Axient Wireless Tackles Referee Microphones at Sun Life Stadium

Innovative New Shure Wireless System Eliminates Referee Microphone Failures

Niles, Ill., January 4, 2012 — For fans, one of the most annoying problems in football is the failure of the referee’s microphone. This issue is particularly common in RF-intensive environments like Sun Life Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins. The stadium is located just a half-mile from the main “antenna farm” of transmitters for the city’s TV stations, making dropouts and interference a fact of life.

At the time of our installation at Sun Life Stadium, Axient was in beta test. Working with ProSound and Shure’s Market Development Manager, Luis Guerra, Sun Life Stadium was able to use the technology throughout the season. “The stadium was experiencing a lot of interference,” Guerra recalls. “With that much RF, even clean frequencies become noisy and non-linear, making conventional wireless unreliable. When the Axient team saw what a challenge it was, they set up Sun Life Stadium as an official beta test site.”

“The first game was a total success,” states Bryan Lykins. “The sound quality was excellent and there were no dropouts on the referee’s mic. The system has been in use throughout the 2011 football season, including University of Miami home games, and the results have been impressive.”
