Patent 11284177 - Automatic identification of a wireless microphone, a body-pack transmitter or a body-pack receiver > Claims

  • 1. A wireless receiver for audio playback via an earphone, wherein the wireless receiver is configured to receive data from a base station via a wireless transmission channel, andwherein the wireless receiver comprises a display for displaying an identification of the transmission channel in use,wherein the identification was entered at the base station or at a device connected to the base station and was transmitted to the wireless receiver,wherein the identification is displayed while the wireless receiver is switched on, andwherein the display of the identification is retained when the wireless receiver is switched off.
    • 2. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the display is an electronic display that is configured to retain and continue to display a last displayed identification without power supply.
    • 3. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the display is an electronic display that has a dedicated power supply configured to provide the electronic display with sufficient power for displaying the identification for at least a plurality of hours.
    • 4. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the wireless receiver is connected to the base station via a wireless transmission channel in a duplex connection.
    • 5. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the identification comprises alphanumeric identification.
      • 6. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 5, wherein the alphanumeric identification comprises a radio frequency or a radio channel of the wireless transmission.
      • 7. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 5, wherein the alphanumeric identification comprises a name of IP address.
    • 8. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the identification comprises at least one graphic symbol.
      • 9. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 8, wherein the at least one graphic symbol is an image or logo.
    • 10. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the identification is stored at the base station and can be re-transmitted when the wireless receiver is switched on again.
    • 11. The wireless receiver as set forth in claim 1, wherein the wireless receiver is configured to receive audio data via a wireless first transmission channel from the base station and configuration data via a second transmission channel,wherein the configuration data are suitable for determining the first transmission channel and comprise said identification data for the first transmission channel.
  • 12. An audio transmission system comprising one or more mobile devices and at least one base station, wherein the one or more mobile devices are wireless receivers,wherein the wireless receivers are configured to receive data from the at least one base station via at least one individual wireless transmission channel each, the data comprising audio data and individual identification information for the wireless transmission channel in use, andwherein the wireless receivers each comprise a display for displaying the received individual identification information,wherein the identification information was entered at the at least one base station or at a device connected to the at least one base station and was transmitted to the respective wireless receiver,wherein the received identification information is displayed at the wireless receiver while the wireless receiver is switched on, andwherein the display of the received identification information is retained when the wireless receiver is switched off.
    • 13. The audio transmission system as set forth in claim 12, further comprising at least one further mobile device, the at least one further mobile device being a wireless microphone or wireless body-pack transmitter and having a display,wherein the at least one further mobile device is configured to receive individual identification information from the at least one base station via at least one wireless transmission channel and to display the received identification information on said display,wherein the identification information was entered at the at least one base station or at a device connected to the at least one base station and was transmitted to the respective further mobile device,wherein the received identification information is displayed at the further mobile device while the further mobile device is switched on, andwherein the display of the received identification information is retained when the further mobile device is switched off.
  • 14. A method for automatic identification of a wireless body-pack receiver by means of a display displaying identification information, the method comprising: connecting the body-pack receiver via a radio connection to a base station;receiving, via the radio connection, identification information at the body-pack receiver, wherein the identification information was previously input at the base station or at a device connected to the base station and wherein the identification information is specific to the respective body-pack receiver;displaying the identification information on an electronic display of the body-pack receiver while the body-pack receiver is switched on,wherein the displayed identification information is visibly retained on the display when the microphone, body-pack transmitter or body-pack receiver is switched off.
    • 15. The method as set forth in claim 14, wherein the identification information comprises at least one graphic symbol.
    • 16. The method as set forth in claim 14, wherein the identification information displayed after switching off is a last identification information that was displayed before switching off.
    • 17. The method as set forth in claim 14, wherein the identification information displayed at the body-pack receiver when switched on comprises only a part of the transmitted identification information, andwherein the identification information displayed after switching off comprises at least a pre-configured other part of the transmitted identification information.
    • 18. The method as set forth in claim 14, wherein the body-pack receiver is connected to the base station via a radio transmission channel in a duplex connection.
    • 19. The method as set forth in claim 14, wherein the body-pack receiver is connected to the base station via a respective radio transmission channel for each direction, and wherein the identification information relates to one of the two transmission channels.
  • 20. An audio transmission system comprising at least two mobile devices, at least one base station and at least one central control unit, wherein the at least two mobile devices are wireless receivers,wherein each wireless receiver is configured to receive audio data via a wireless first transmission channel and configuration data via a second transmission channel,wherein the configuration data are suitable for determining the first transmission channel and comprise identification data for the first transmission channel, andwherein each wireless receiver comprises a display for displaying an identification in accordance with the identification data,wherein the identification data comprises at least a name or a graphic symbol and was entered at a base station or at a device connected to the base station and was transmitted to the wireless receiver,wherein the identification is displayed while the wireless receiver is switched on, andwherein the display of the identification is retained when the wireless receiver is switched off,wherein the data for determining the radio transmission channel used by the respective transmitter and the identification data for the radio transmission channel are transmitted from the central control unit to each of the mobile devices and are different for each of the mobile devices, andwherein the identification data represent an individual name or an individual graphic symbol for each of the mobile devices.
