Sound in the Time of Covid

Update 3/24/20:

Gotham will continue to be open for business primarily by mail, shipping out equipment and accepting repairs with strict sanitizing protocols in place and very limited in-store staff, including at least one owner on site each day.

The stores in New York and Atlanta are open to customers by appointment only, though curbside pick-up is available.

If you intend to come by, please call or email to make arrangements:

We hope you're getting through this trying time as comfortably as possible. If we can help in any way, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Dear Friends of Gotham Sound,
 
During this time of uncertainty as we adjust to the realities of trying to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we wanted to let you know we are thinking about each and every one of you.

The most important thing is that we hope you, your friends, and your family are all safe and well.  We know that times are difficult with the entertainment industry effectively shutting down as well as worries about the virus itself.

We are taking precautions to remain open and available to you as long as possible.  Our employees are practicing social distancing and we will be running our stores with a reduced number of concurrent in-store employees supported by those working from home.  We are cleaning and disinfecting everything at our offices three times as often as usual.

We'll be here to answer questions, to help with brainstorming ideas, and, of course, for anything you need right now.  To help you get the gear delivered directly to you, we are temporarily offering free shipping to the continental US on all orders over $50 placed at gothamsound.com.

Please call us or email us with anything.  We plan on producing some content on Gotham TV to help pass the time while everything is sorted out - we've just uploaded a new one on the Zaxcom Nova firmware updates and our video archives are here..  Please let us know if you have ideas for anything you would like to see.

 

All our best
From everyone at Gotham Sound

600 MHz Spectrum Update - August 2019

We're inching ever closer to the July 13th, 2020 deadline when the transition to the new USA spectrum regulations will be complete and production wireless systems will have to stop using most of the 616 - 698 MHz (block 24-26) frequencies. However, changes are already afoot:

Before July 13th, 2020

  • Barring a notice from T-Mobile, you may continue to legally use wireless in 616 to 698 MHz; however, we strongly recommend changing frequencies as soon as possible.
     
  • Wireless equipment in 616 to 698 which is currently in production can still be reblocked. Discontinued / legacy gear cannot be reblocked, though it may be able to be serviced.

 

After July 13th, 2020

  • Use of 616 to 698 MHz (with the exception of the 653-663 MHz duplex gap) becomes illegal for production wireless.
     
  • You may continue to legally use discontinued / legacy equipment in 470 to 616 and 653 to 663 MHz, as long as the operator complies with transmitter output power regulations and  has a license where applicable.
     
  • Reserved channels for wireless mics will be discontinued.
     
  • Wireless equipment in 616 to 698 MHz which is currently in production can still be reblocked. Discontinued / legacy gear cannot be reblocked, though it may be able to be serviced.

 

Check out our 2017 gude for a more detailed look at alternate frequencies and other steps you can take, including getting a Part 74 license, which we highly encourage and will allow you more frequency options and higher power output.

If you have any questions about your wireless situation, feel free to email us at [email protected] or call us at (212) 629-9430.

Relevant to the whole wireless kerfuffle, we've just given our RF frequency scan repository a facelift with updated TV channels, new overlays from more manufacturers, and fresh scans for most studios in the NY area with 900 MHz data.

However, a lot of our data is pretty stale and doesn't reflect all the recent changes, so if you've got scans to share, send them our way!
