    Los Angeles, CA-based production sound mixer David Kelson is constantly challenged with the uncontrollable variables that come with his job, including surround noise, digital RF interference and little time for experimentation, which he overcomes with assistance from a range of Lectrosonics wireless products. Having worked in location sound for the TV and film industry since 1982, some of Kelson’s recent projects include The Walking Dead on the AMC network (American Movie Classics) and the TV movie Steel Magnolias, and he… View this story

    When Discovery Channel’s MythBusters set out to test the claim that subaudible low-frequency sounds near 19 Hz can instill feelings of discomfort, dread, and even outright terror, they turned to Meyer Sound and Dr. Roger Schwenke, the company’s staff scientist and honorary MythBuster, for assistance. The episode was aired on Discovery Channel on October 28. Filming for the “fear frequency” segment took place in and around four abandoned cabins at a secluded forest resort in Northern California. To test the… View this story

    When Sound Mixer Bob Tiwana sought a new boom microphone to record the seventh season of National Geographic’s Border Wars, he turned to DPA Microphones’ 4017B Shotgun Microphone.

Tiwana records on location… View this story

    Currently ranked first in the country by audience share, STB, one of the Ukraine’s most popular television stations, needed a digital console that would withstand the rigors of moving around the country to regional heats of the Ukrainian version of Masterchef. “The console had to be a reliable workhorse, able to work while constantly travelling - sometimes in hostile environments. As far as we were concerned, DiGiCo has the best protection against dust and shock resistance. There was also an… View this story
