TV & Film

TV & film sets are increasingly complex in their design, and keeping in touch with the whole crew helps to achieve a sleek and professional final cut.


TV & Film set are busy places working to tight schedules, communicating and organising with people are key parts of ensuring that the days tasks are completed. Two-way radios allow for instant clear communications between your team or multiple teams.

Roadphone NRB have worked with a number of production crews and hope to allow them to be as flexible as possible in the work they do. Everyone from the show caller, actors, camera crews and directors needs to be able to hear the word ‘ACTION’, and for these scenarios, we often recommend the latest handsets, programmed using legacy analogue technology. Analogue channels feature instant audio transfer, with audio which some feel sounds more ‘real’. This makes analogue channels a good option, especially when transmitting audio through a show-comms interface.

Hiring radios can often be the best approach to take, and our experienced team can help with repeater positioning and frequency procurement. We’ve worked all across Europe, and so can help to integrate with the logistics of your shoot, whatever its location! You’ve also got a great choice of digital radios and accessories, and we even have good stock of the older Motorola GP340 handsets.

Get in touch with the team at Roadphone NRB today to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Licencing

Placeholder Picture

Two-way radios can be broken down into two main areas - Licensed Radio & Unlicensed PMR446 Radio . Both of these types of radio operate in essentially the same way, but the output power of the radios, coverage area and number of other users on the channel varies.

So, what’s the difference between Licensed and Unlicensed? Unlicensed radios operate on PMR446 frequencies, and are limited by law to 0.5W of output power, that’s only 1/10th of the output of a licenced handheld radio. This limits the range of the radios, which, like any other radio, can vary greatly depending on the terrain and number of buildings in the area. License-free frequencies are common across most of Europe, which makes them ideal for use in both the UK and when oversees.

Licensed radios have a maximum output power of 5W for handportables, and 25W for vehicle mobile units. The increased power helps with increasing coverage, and as licensed spectrum is controlled by the local licensing authority (OFCOM in the UK), the chances of encountering other users or interference on your frequency are reduced. You need to pay for licensed frequencies, and the cost varies depending on what your requirements are, how congested the spectrum is, and where you are located. Contact us, and we’ll advise you on the best approach to take.

Frequency (UHF & VHF)

UHF (ultra-high frequency) and VHF (very high frequency) are both bands of frequency spectrum which can be used to make two-way radios communicate. Your decision will depend on a variety of factors; what frequency spectrum is available, have you got existing radios you’d like to integrate with, and which option will provide the best coverage and performance for your needs.

Most of the leading radios from Motorola Solutions and Hytera are available in both UHF and VHF, and your trusted advisor at Roadphone NRB will advise you on what’s best for you.
