    Sun Life Stadium, home of the NFL Miami Dolphins and NCAA University of Miami Hurricanes, is located just a half-mile from the main “antenna farm” of transmitters for the city’s TV stations, creating potential for dropouts and interference that can plague wireless microphone systems serving referees. “The referee solution we had in place, although operational, lacked resiliency,” notes Bryan Lykins, the team’s newly hired director of broadcast operations. “This is why we engaged Shure Axient. Their technology is impressive and… View this post

    As any field production professional knows, electronics and liquids simply don’t get along very well. And yet, there are those occasions when the gear simply can’t avoid taking a hit. Such was the case during a post game interview in August when the Houston Astros stunned the Chicago Cubs by coming behind with a major play in the bottom of the 9th inning. As the team celebrated, a large beverage cooler had its contents emptied on the player who made… View this post

    The annual ceremony for lighting the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in late November had Wireless First, a Clair Global company, wrangling 86 channels of wireless that spanned a full city block. The successful Wireless First package included the new CF 1090 Fractal Antenna, designed and manufactured by Wireless First/Clair Global and employing a self-similar antenna topology to deliver high gain across a wide, uniform coverage pattern using a small, camera-friendly housing. “We had multiple stages all over the plaza, and… View this post

    A key area of microphone use is the interface of the microphone with the sound system. This primarily involves electrical considerations, so here are a few simple rules for proper interface based on the electrical characteristics of the microphone output and the sound system input, and on the requirements for cables and connectors to achieve maximum reliability. All condenser type microphones require power for their operation. This is provided by an internal battery in some models, or by phantom power… View this post

    Clair Global has introducied the CF 1090 Fractal Antenna for live entertainment applications worldwide. The creation of the CF 1090 is a study in guided serendipity. In the summer of 2010, Clair Global acquired Wireless First. Both the company’s founder, Kevin Sanford and his chief engineer Josh Flower had been working on a new wireless antenna in their shop for several years. Now, as part of the Clair team, they moved quickly to take advantage of Clair’s resources. The final… View this post

    Now in its 37th season, the PBS concert series Austin City Limits has captured an incredible variety of artists from every corner of the musical spectrum. Long-time audio director David Hough of originating station KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, notes that one constant across those decades of television’s longest-running music series has been the use of Shure microphones. “For all 37 years I’ve been with Austin City Limits, we’ve always had Shure vocal mics downstage, and they’ve always worked great,” Hough notes.… View this post

    9V Transmitter For the 9V transmitter I used the Shure SC1-TA. It has a relatively low current drain (50mA) that remains relatively constant with increasing time until the battery voltage is insufficient (6.5V) to keep the unit on. This is a VHF system. AA Transmitter For the AA testing I used the Lectrosonics SM. It is an ultra-miniature digital hybrid UHF transmitter than runs from a single AA cell. The current draw is voltage-dependent. The transmitter turns off when the… View this post
