A wide spectrum of choice
Andy Clements Without microphones, in-ear monitors (IEMs), intercom and distribution systems based on wireless technology, many of today's large-scale television studios, outside broadcast and film productions would be very difficult, if not impossible, to stage. Wireless solutions provide convenience and, in the main, great performance, however as with many technologies careful investment will provide the best results.

UWP-D11 Review
Kevin Cook Ever since the new regulations in the UK on radio microphone frequencies were introduced in the UK at the end of 2012, the days were numbered for my trusty old Sony UWP series radio mic system (consisting of the URX-P1 UHF dual-diversity receiver and UTX-B1 transmitter). Whilst super-reliable and excellent quality, this combo is limited to channels 67-69 which the government sold off to expand the frequencies available for mobile phones (cheers!!).

How to choose the right broadcast microphone
Ralph Dunlop Traditionally the most popular microphone used in broadcast and film sound recording was the Boom mounted mic. The problem with older boom microphones was getting the mic close enough to the artist without it appearing in shot or casting a shadow over the performer.

Sony UWP series microphone review
Jon Pratchett Its all well and good having a beautifully lit and well framed and focused shot, but if the sound is rubbish then you might as well throw the footage in the bin. Sound is as important as the quality of the video image. This is especially true when interviewing someone or recording a corporate presentation.

Wireless Audio at the sharp end
N/A It's noisy, it's very, very hot, but then often it can be cold or raining but it's still noisy and everything has to be de-rigged and moved to another country, sometimes in a different continent, every two weeks did I mention it's noisy?

Location Sound Recording And Post-production with Chris Watson
N/A Ask The Experts Sound is often regarded as playing a subordinate role to visuals in film, TV and video production, but the finest directors and producers have insisted on taking as much care over the sonics of a production as the visuals. Of course, on smaller-scale productions, it's still often the case that the soundtrack is whatever you capture while youre busy recording the visuals, plus any incidental music you can afford to put over the top.

How to choose a Microphone
N/A The microphone is probably the most important tool we use when recording sound. Plugging it into the best pre-amplifier will optimise the quality of the signal but no amount of processing will fix the wrong sound coming from your microphone. The device for turning movements in the air into an electrical signal is a creative instrument and should be regarded as part of the performance.
