Introducing RF|Scout

RF|Scout is a low-cost, innovative Spectrum Monitoring solution for engineers, theatres, broadcast studio's and all other venue's frequented by wireless systems like wireless mics, intercom systems, IFB, IEM's and all other production tools.

Realtime Radio Frequency Spectum information

Do you want to know which part of the RF spectrum is occupied, and which parts are free to use? No theortetical lists but real data, real time on what is available for your wireless mics, camera's, IEM's, intercoms or any other wireless production tool's? Thats exactly what RFScout offers!
Real data, no lists
Before today the basis for everyday spectrum info were theoretical lists of physical radio & TV broadcast stations. Unfortunately these lists ignore all other real life emission sources,  how up to date the lists are or how bad the interference actually is.

RF|Scout visualizes the whole spectrum right there and then for exactly your location, from 108MHz to 2.7GHz, so not only the wireless-mic critical UHF bands, but also VHF, DECT, 4G & 5G intergaps, Wifi/2.4 etc.
Multi-user
RF|Scout is multi-access and works on any tablet, laptop and/or desktop. A theatre can thus show RFScouts spectum scans on a screen backstage, offer access to a visiting engineer, and monitor from the backoffice or actually from anywhere in the world for that matter.

Take it one step further and visiting engineers can be given access days before arriving at your venue, giving them all means to do their frequency allocation based in true information from the venue they will be visiting soon.

Low Cost
"For the cost of a cup of coffee per day". It has been our goal from the very first day to make the RF|Scout so affordable that literately every venue can have one. All thats required additionally is an open internet connection* and the compact RF|Scout Node, which is placed near the stage or studio-floor.

*nothing fancy: the dataload of the RF|Scout Node is almost negligible.

Introducing
The Base Spectrum Info

The basic screen provides a clear, uncluttered view of the RF Spectrum, right there and then. It shows the regional DVB-T TV stations, local transmitters, ENG crews or simply any other RF source. And of course where spectrum is free to use, without interference. Realtime. Simple.

Keep it simple
RF Scout Markers

The RF|Scout Admin can place markers on specific spot frequencies or frequency ranges, e.g. wireless mic/intercoms systems of the house, or known local DVBT transmitters. This helps immensly with instant situational awareness and identify area's to avoid.
These markers belong to the particular RF|Scout Node, and each user can turn them On or Off at will.

Make it sweet
Private Markers

Each User also has his own set of "Private Markers". Ideal for labeling your very own wireless systems or other specific frequencies of interest. Also, your Private Markers travel with you from one RF|Scout venue to the next RF|Scout , making deployment of your traveling system a breeze.

Make it easy
TV Channel layover

MHz or TV channel? Both are used when communicating about frequencies, so we made the MHz always present at the bottom of the graph, but with the TV Channel Overlay you also know your channel whereabouts. Per user selectable On or Off, and of course if you prefer the PAL/8MHz system of the NTSC/6MHz channel layout.

What Happened?
The Delta Trace

The Delta Trace gives you the difference between the Realtime scan and a pre-selected one. Sounds simple, but its a very powerfull feature!
A straight Blue line? Then all is as expected. Any change (a transmitter that should have been there but isn't, or the other way around: a new transmitter you didn't expect yet its there) and the divergent Blue Delta Trace will immediately grab your attention.
