Television band devices (TVBD) are a reality and the first of the geo-location databases directing TVBD operations are in the testing phase. Operating wireless microphones, IEMs, intercoms and cueing in this new environment requires understanding how the databases work and the rules governing both licensed and unlicensed wireless production equipment. This panel brings together a diverse group of individuals intimately involved from the beginning with TVBDs, databases and the new FCC rules as well as seasoned veterans of medium to large scale wireless microphone deployments to discuss how the databases operate, how to use the database for registering TV channel usage, and best procedures and practices to insure minimal problems.
