Instead of using a traditional boom technique, sound mixer Rado Stefanov relied on the DPA kit for both talent and ambient sound recording on a show that chronicles the daily goings on at a car and motorcycle restoration and customization company in Las Vegas. “The DPA miniatures sound exactly like boom mics with the added advantage that I can plant them directly on the talent or vehicles engines and interiors,” says Stefanov. “The main advantage of the DPA mics is that they have a high SPL, which means they can handle extremely loud sound sources and wont distort when we go from very low dialogue to very noisy car and bike sounds.” Altered Images, a leading reseller of technology for the television production and corporate communications industries, has announced the appointment of Tim Cunningham as Senior Business Development Manager – for Midlands , Wales, and West of England. www.dpamicrophones.com A well respected industry fi gure he rejoins after 3 years having grown his knowledge and experience even further through his work at Presteigne Charter and Tyrell CCT.
