    Conventional wired microphone systems convert sound captured into an electrical audio signal that is sent through a cable and into the sound system. Wired systems are generally found to deliver higher quality audio when compared to wireless systems. However, when multiple different devices are all wired up the stage or studio can easily become an entanglement of wires and freedom of movement can be limited. This is where wireless microphone systems excel.

    Wireless microphone systems work by converting audio signals created by the microphone into radio signals. The audio signals are sent by the transmitter to the receiver, which then converts the radio signal back into audio signals which can be used by the sound system. Wireless systems completely eliminate the need for cables maximizing your freedom of movement and adding simplicity to your set up.

    Movo Photo offers a range of wireless microphone systems for any need: 

    The WMIC50 is a cost effective, and easy to use option. It pairs one transmitter with one receiver, operates at the 2.4GHz frequency, works with DSLRs and video cameras, and has a range of 164'.
