Audio Engineering

Manufacturers of the Micron range of radio microphones. 

From the Micron Wireless website (2007):
Founded in 1965, the company has a long pedigree as a specialist supplier to the film and broadcast industries, launching The Blimp - a lightweight sound-proof jacket for film cameras - as its first product. A crystal sync system for film cameras soon followed, accompanied by microphone phantom power supplies. The development of Micron radio microphone systems commenced in 1970, with the first units being launched in 1972.
The initial range included a high-quality wireless microphone with a previously-unheard degree of acoustic transparency, setting the industry standard for this type of device. In 1980, Audio Engineering became the first manufacturer to produce a modular radio microphone rack system, with individual diversity receivers, spearheading the use of multi-channel diversity systems in television studios, EFP and theatres.
Development continued with the introduction of the Micron CNS compander-based diversity system - first used on the 1984 Barbican production of 'Les Misérables'. The Micron CNS (Complementary Noise Suppression) System is a key ingredient in the products' long-standing reputation for sound quality and has been continually updated and enhanced. Recent Micron developments include the introduction of frequency-synthesis technology across a variety of wireless microphone and communications systems, with many featuring a particularly a wide RF tuning range, plus further expansion of the multi-channel diversity receiver options for location sound recording and ENG/EFP.
