The Berliner Ensemble works with the Shure ULX-D digital wireless system

The building
Theater am Schiffbauerdamm on Friedrich-Wilhelm-Straße in Berlin’s Mitte district is the venue used by the Berliner Ensemble. This famous acting group was founded on September 1, 1949 by Bertold Brecht, who was responsible for its artistic direction, and Helene Weigel who became its manager. The Berliner Ensemble was initially entitled to perform at the nearby German Theater before moving to the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm in 1954. The venue is now one of Germany’s leading stages and offers sophisticated and elaborate productions.

The task
Because changes to the available frequency spectrum had caused performance problems in the old wireless system, Berliner Immobilienmanagement GmbH (BIM for short) invited tenders for the installation of a new, modern wireless system with a broad frequency coverage. Existing analog technology at Theater am Schiffbauerdamm had experienced increasing problems following the launch of LTE, and additional equipment had to be rented out in order to work on the few frequencies that remained. Technical planning was the responsibility of MMT Network GmbH under the leadership of Ralf Bauer-Diefenbach. ASC Berlin, system integrator for media technology, saw off other bidders to win the tender for the installation of a digital wireless system.
The solution
From the outset, the new wireless system was going to have to be as sustainable and flexible – and upgradable – as possible, in view of the second Digital Dividend and an ever-dwindling frequency range. Because frequencies are very overloaded around the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm, ASC Berlin performed a long-term frequency measurement between 400 and 900 MHz for eight hours over six days, scanning, logging, and evaluating the entire UHF spectrum and calculating actual frequencies on that basis. They installed a ULX-D Shure digital wireless system which can be operated using any conventional media control system and which is highly energy-efficient.
