    Im interested if IEM´s would be possible to link too…

    What does the manual tell you about this question?
    And out of interest, what information a transmitter can supply, would be of high interest for you to see directly on the mixing board?

    Would love to see battery level and rf signal.

    And which of the IEM transmitters by Shure and Sennheiser (the 2 companies currently supported by A&H) supply these infos?
    And are there any IEM transmitters by other companies, that will show this info?

    I don’t know of any…
    Please enlighten me!

    I agree:
    First, Sennheiser and Shure must also offer this data before it can be displayed by the console.

    Well Sennheiser does show you that detail with WSM.

    On which IEM systems that is?
    To my understanding, for this information to be shown on the transmitter, it would require a sending channel from the receiver back to the transmitter. And I don’t know of any IEM receivers that offers that functionality.

    Ahh sorry, it was a receiver that I saw getting this data. Yea i don’t know is it just me that thinks this would be handy? Or is it not needed

    Of course – it would be a useful function.

    But as RS already wrote: the receiver would then have to transmit its status back to the transmitter.
    So there would have to be a transmitter in the receiver.
    Otherwise, the transmitter can’t know the battery status of the receiver.

    I don’t know, maybe Lectrosonics has something like that, but I don’t know of any IEM receiver from Sennheiser or Shure that can send its values back to the transmitter.
    Maybe there will be something like that someday.

    So for the moment we have no choice but to put in new charged batteries before the show and trust that they will survive the show. And that’s where we have a lot of experience.

    What is in any case a fact:
    the console can’t display data that it doesn’t receive.

    Sure it would be a great feature to have. But who would be willing to spend almost the double prize on a IEM unit, or what ever it will cost to implement a second transmitter and a second receiver, just to see battery level? Maybe it could be done technically using WIFI for a reduced prize point and without introducing too much trouble into the antenna system as it would happen with 2 parallel RF systems.
    But we are talking about reliability in the event industry and for me that is to avoid WIFI where ever I could. So I stay with the old habit as described by Wolfgang.

    And Wolfgang, Lectrosonics don’t offer that feature on any of their IEM devices I know.

    Thanks for the tip about Lectrosonics. I’m not that familiar with their products, but if a manufacturer had this function, it would probably be them. 😉
