    The new Sennheiser MO 2000 optical microphone offers a new type of transducer that processes acoustic signals on the basis of variations in light intensity, making it well suited for applications where other microphones are only partly (or not at all) effective. “By implementing the optical principle, both the microphone head and the electronics can be located far away from each other,” noted David McNutt, industry team manager-installed sound. “And to insure functionality in demanding environments the microphone head is… View this story

Lil’ Wayne’s dynamic stage presentation involves a “three dimensional” approach with each band member on an 8- by 8-foot moving deck with video panels and surrounds weaving around and between them, dramatic pyro effects and Wayne moving all over a 60 x 48 foot “rolling” stage below.  Price, who notes that he “loves… View this story

Coverage to the entire venue including side hangs, front fills and delays, was made up of 20 Martin Audio W8LC compact line array hangs as… View this story

The vertical coverage is controlled by the (vertical) length of the array. Ten boxes, which is a length of about six meters, provide a good directivity down to frequencies of about 45… View this story
