BROADCASTING AT SPORTING EVENTS
Audio for sports broadcasting places extremely high demands on the microphones used. Not only do they have to sound good in a hectic environment but they also need to be quick to set up, easy to handle, robust in all types of weather conditions and unobtrusive. Those are tough demands, but DPA has microphone solutions that shine in this application. “We were really delighted with the performance of all the DPA Microphones, but especially the Mobile Surround Microphone, which sounded fantastic. It was incredibly easy to rig and protect from bad weather and was significantly less expensive than other microphone systems. Thanks to the d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone, we achieved a rich, smooth and fully enveloping sound that was great in its coherence, channel separation and localization accuracy.”
