The European Commission announces the organisation of a PMSE Stakeholders Workshop focusing on elements for a possible putting in place of harmonised technical conditions of radio spectrum use by wireless microphones and associated applications for programme making and special events (wireless audio PMSE equipment) in the European Union.

Date:    Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Time:    10:00 – approx. 13:30

Venue:  Centre Albert Borschette – RoomAB-5B

              Rue Froissart 36, Brussels 1000

In the workshop the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) presented the outcome of the LTE-PMSE coexistence tests performed in Ispra on November 13-15, 2013. The objective of these tests was to verify whether interference from LTE terminals to PMSE equipment operating in the LTE duplex gap can be reduced or eliminated by utilizing LTE picocells operating in a different band.

In the workshop stakeholders had the opportunity to share views and discuss the outcomes of the testing and provide views on the feasibility and potential the costs of introducing picocells in indoor venues such as theatres using wireless audio PMSE equipment.

The workshop also gave an opportunity to share views on the implementation possibilities and the actions required from stakeholders, regulators and the Commission to help reduce or eliminate interference to PMSE equipment at cultural and social events.

The workshop gave an opportunity to share views on considerations and preliminary elements for a draft Commission decision.
