    For the NBC live telecasts of two outdoor holiday events in New York City, Clair Global was faced with massive coverage areas, unpredictable weather, and Manhattan’s famously crowded wireless spectrum. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” tree lighting telecast on November 30 each presented similar challenges to the wireless specialists at Clair Global. Under the unforgiving conditions of live network broadcasts, Clair Global RF engineer and project manager Joshua Flower selected Shure Axient wireless microphones and… View this post

    With 138 shows scheduled over a 15-month run across five continents, Justin Bieber’s marathon “Purpose World Tour” is on track to rank among the five top grossing tours of 2016. The tour’s success relies heavily on an intimate connection between artist and audience, a feat accomplished physically with aggressive out-in-the-house staging and sonically supported by a Meyer Sound LEO Family reinforcement system from VER Tour Sound. Selection of the LEO Family system was a collaborative decision on the part of… View this post

    I took guitar lessons over this past summer. I’ve been around bands and music my entire life, and at one point was an unbelievably mediocre bassist. I had enough ability to know the notes on the neck and follow a chart. I was even pretty solid with rhythm and accuracy. But that, as they say, was that. Anyway, the guitar lessons taught me a lot of things that I thought I already understood. They produced enough new information to feel… View this post

    The 17th Annual Latin Grammy Awards, recently held at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena, was seen by more than 9.0 million viewers via both the Univision broadcast and those attending the sold-out live event. Orlando, Florida-based Professional Wireless Systems (PWS) was on site to provide RF coordination for the production. More than 170 RF frequencies were used for wireless microphones, in-ear monitors and intercom systems.

    Acoustic performances, and the instruments themselves, usually need to be handled differently than the electronic side of things. Thumping kick drums, compressed bass guitars and the like are not the norm for performances intended to be more musically subtle. A more natural sound is desired and it starts with microphone choice and deployment. Fortunately, most instruments can be picked up quite nicely with just three types of mics that most sound folks already have in their inventories. A mic locker… View this post

    Hardly Strictly Bluegrass (HSB) is not your average festival. In fact, there is nothing “hardly” or “strictly” about the event in any way, be it the artists booked, the location, or the mix of tech that Bay-area-based Sound On Stage (SOS) uses to make it all happen. This year, SOS—which has supplied sound for each iteration of the festival since its debut in 2001—extended its run of leaning on L-Acoustics to provide the PA for all seven of the festival’s… View this post
