Sennheiser Canada, in a coordinated effort with Sennheiser Germany, announces the opening of an RF/equipment service and sales facility with the upcoming XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The facility will offer assistance to radio and television broadcasters from all corners of the globe using Sennheiser technology that requires frequency coordination and equipment service.
Broadcasters will be able to purchase Sennheiser's new 2000 Series wireless systems, as well. Sennheiser's 2010 Olympic RF coordination facility will open on February 6—six days before the games officially start —and close at the end of day on February 14. To secure an appointment, it is recommended that broadcasters contact Sennheiser Canada in advance; "walk-ins" will be accommodated as time permits.
Sennheiser Canada technical consultant Rob Poretti, and Germany's global RF specialist, Klaus Willemsen, and technical consultant, Gerhard Spyra, will staff the Sennheiser Olympic service facility.
The RF coordination facility will be located at Video Matrix/Matrix Pro Shop, 123 West 7th Ave., Vancouver, B.C., V5Y 1L8, just 2.5 miles from the International Broadcast Center. It will be open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily from February 6 to February 14. Contact Robert Généreux at 514/823-8223 or firstname.lastname@example.org to setup an advance appointment.
