Patent number 8554145 is assigned to
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "a) Field of the Invention
"The present invention is directed to a method for allocating a frequency for wireless audio communications, a frequency information server, a transmitter-receiver device, mobile wireless audio communications apparatus, and a wireless microphone reception system.
"b) Description of the Related Art
"Wireless microphones and wireless in-ear monitors are becoming increasingly popular, while the frequencies available for their operation remain limited. Therefore, the available frequency ranges must be used multiple times, for example, with respect to place or time. Consequently, usable microphone frequencies must be calculated and correspondingly coordinated. Active protection against interference or reduction of interference is made possible by taking into account external sources of interference arising from other wireless applications."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "Therefore, it is the primary object of the present invention to provide a method for allocating frequencies for wireless audio communications which makes efficient use of the available frequency ranges.
"This object is met, in accordance with the invention, by a method for allocating a frequency for wireless audio communications comprising the following steps: receiving a request for a frequency for wireless audio communications, wherein the request contains the location, the time period, the quantity of required wireless communications paths and/or the available equipment for the wireless audio communications; comparing the request with information about frequency allocation which is stored in databases; displaying possible frequency ranges; and allocating the possible frequency ranges to transmitter units and/or receiver units of the requested wireless audio communication.
"Also in accordance with the invention, the object is met by a frequency information server for allocating a frequency for a wireless audio communications path comprising an input-output interface for receiving requests for a frequency for a wireless audio communications path, wherein the request contains the location, the time period, the quantity of wireless audio communications paths and/or the available equipment for the audio communications path; at least one database for storing information about utilized frequency, location, terminal, types of equipment and/or the users of wireless audio communications paths; a calculation unit for coordinating the requested audio communications path with the information stored in the at least one database and for allocating transmission parameters of the requested wireless audio communications path; and a frequency information server interface for outputting the transmission parameters of the requested wireless audio communications paths which are assigned by the calculation unit.
