Google, Microsoft Battle Broadway Theaters

NY1

Google, Microsoft, and other tech tech companies have asked the Federal Communication Commission for permission to use the frequencies which Broadway theaters’ wireless microphones operate on for new wireless devices.

Charlotte St. Martin, a spokesperson for the Broadway League, said that all live performances that use wireless microphones could be affected.  To that end, The Wireless Innovation Alliance, which includes Google
and Microsoft, says it has come up with a compromise so that new
technologies using white space would be blocked if there were wireless
microphones within range.
