RF Venue was co-founded in late 2009 by Chris Regan and Bob Crowley as an incubator project within Bob’s R&D Company, Soundwave Research Laboratories of Ashland, MA. Chris and Bob had previously launched and exited a wired microphone company called Crowley and Tripp Microphones, acquired by Shure Inc. in 2009.
The regulatory landscape for wireless spectrum will continue to undergo significant changes as more wireless devices compete for less available spectrum. Wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, two-way radios and other live event wireless systems are adversely affected by this spectrum crowding trend. RF Venue began developing a range of products within the commercial sound equipment industry to reduce signal dropouts and interference for all brands of wireless audio equipment. Dropouts and interference problems have been pervasive for wireless audio systems since their introduction in the 1970s and the deployment of this equipment has always been challenging for live and installed sound system professionals and their clients.
