Forgot to mention that we are usin a SENNHEISER freeport Vocal set  
UHF-fp 35-E wireless mic fed into our Gentner and it works well.

> Hi all,
> We are in the process of upgrading our equipment and would like some
> input.  We currently have a room based AG node with 4 cameras, 4
> projectors, wired desktop mics, XAP800, all on one Dell dual processor
> running windows XP.  We are going to upgrade to a beefier machine, 3
> analog cameras, one high def camera, 3 HDTV digital video displays, 1
> flat panel digital display, possibly wireless mics, possibly same audio
> mixer.
> So my questions are:
> 1. Is a single machine the best option or should I consider a separate
> machine for display?
> 2. Since the displays have only HDMI input, what kind of cards are
> folks using?
> 3. Is there a cable length limit for HDMI cables I need to take into
> consideration?
> 4. We would also like to upgrade our speakers - any suggestions?
> 5. Wireless mics - what is working for folks? How about ceiling mics?
> Has anyone had good luck with any particular brands?
> 6. I have a sony EVI-HD1 HD camera and Blackmagic Decklink HD Extreme
> card, and I'm currently using a Winov Videum for the analog
> cameras......can those two exist in the same machine?
> 7.  Should I upgrade the audio mixer?
> 8. What kind of issues do you see with HD displays and AG compatibility?
> Any other suggestions are welcome!
> Thanks!
