Just a day after the CRTC issued an exemption order permitting it to do so, a Montreal-based company offered spectators at the Molson Indy in Toronto an on-site broadcast service via wireless devices. A new exemption order for low-powered broadcasts of special events issued July 10 means that World Audio-Visual Entertainment Systems Inc. (W.A.V.E.S.) now only has to send a form to Industry Canada’s spectrum management section to get a frequency before each event for which it wishes to offer its wireless TV service.
