AC-ET Gets to the Point with Sennheiser G3

1st April 2011

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd's Audio division has supplied an extensive Sennheiser 312 G3 wireless microphone system to Sutton, Surrey based Point Source Productions. The company has replaced all its previous microphone systems and standardised with Sennheiser and the new Channel 38 system.

The sale initially comprised 44 omni-directional clip-on lapel mics complete with belt packs and receiver, and was shortly followed by another six receivers and dynamic cardioid hand-held transmitters, plus all the necessary antenna and distribution. It was co-ordinated by A.C. Audio's Stuart Moots with Point Source Productions' Stephen Capel.

Point Source Productions is a lighting, AV and audio company specialising in the conference, exhibition, corporate events and theatre sectors. They also engage in a lot of work with local theatres and schools in and around London and the 'home counties'.

While lighting and AV makes up a larger section of their equipment inventory, the supply of numerous small to medium audio systems is an important element of their business.

Founded in 1997, Point Source Productions has used AC-ET as a supplier right from the beginning. Stephen Capel says of AC-ET, "The service is excellent. Their stock-holding levels, general response time and willingness to pull out all the stops to make things happen, often at extremely short notice, is incredible."

AC-ET's Audio division is an agent for most leading manufacturers in all pro audio equipment sectors, providing a complete one-stop-shop service. Stephen Capel explains that he had lots of questions relating to the Channel 38 digital switchover, which A.C. Audio were able to answer in detail and with authority in the process of helping develop the right solution for Point Source Productions' specific needs.

Stephen also wanted to buy into and standardise on a premium brand, for which Sennheiser ticked all the right boxes. "G3 seemed to be the most complete system. It has all the functionality you need for a good price, including user-friendly software that can be run from a laptop for controlling all the mics and tuning-in to frequencies etc., together with a good 'extras' package" he comments. In addition, as many other companies stock Sennheiser, it's also valuable as a cross-rental item.

The G3 system is intuitive and straightforward to use. When the settings are changed on the receiver, the components automatically adjust to one another with a push of the front panel sync button. The inconspicuous clip-on mic is optimised for best reproduction of the human voice and provides superb speech intelligibility.
