Viacom International Media Networks deploys Hitomi MatchBox for 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards

Hitomi Broadcast, manufacturer of MatchBox, the industry’s leading audio video alignment technologies, today announced that Viacom International Media Networks Media and Technology Services (MTS) used MatchBox for the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards in Seville, Spain, on 3 November.

Viacom International MTS deployed MatchBox’s sync toolbox for the red carpet, main award show, backstage, and after-show party feeds, televised on 100+ channels worldwide from the FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville. Hosted by American singer, songwriter, and actress, Becky G, the show included a special headline performance, filmed by Viacom International the previous night at the MTV World Stage at Plaza de España in Seville, by ‘Best Rock’ nominee, Green Day.

Viacom International MTS Global Lead Systems Engineer for Studio and Production Technology, Matt Okotie, said, “Using MatchBox, I can sync signals in under a millisecond to ensure that before we go to air, lip sync is correct. This is crucial for any production, but particularly for a live, globally distributed event, so you have to be absolutely sure you get it right. That’s why I leave it to MatchBox. Basically, if MatchBox reads ‘zero’, you know that lip sync is perfect.”

Viacom International MTS used MatchBox to sync its 4K/UHD feed from Seville to London, and then on for a global sync to all the other MatchBox readers around the world.

DPA 6066 Subminiature Headset Mic Nominated for Prestigious TEC Award Posted: 05/11/2019
DPA and rsquo;s 6066 Subminiature Headset Mic Nominated for Prestigious TEC Award

DPA Microphones6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone is a nominee for the 35th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the Microphones – Sound Reinforcement Category. Products that are nominated for a TEC Award have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. With a capsule measuring in at just three millimeters in diameter, the 6066 microphones may be small, but they are powerful in terms of performance – making this solution an ideal candidate for a TEC Award.

 

Featuring CORE by DPA technology, the mic reduces distortion, increases dynamic range and features a frequency range of 20Hz-20kHz along with a noise floor of only 24dB(A). The 6066 also benefits from a completely redesigned, lightweight, one-size-fits-all headset that attaches over the ears for maximum comfort and includes a spring mechanism that grips below the head/ears for added security. It even received a Red Dot design award for its innovative and user-friendly design.

 

“We put a great deal of time and energy into designing a headset microphone that is elegant and implements all of the features we wanted in a small package,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “The 6000 series capsule is the smallest we have ever designed. It required working on the edge of what is physically possible in order to get the renowned sound of the five-millimeter capsule of the 4066 into the new three-millimeter capsule of the 6066. The goal behind this microphone was to develop a solution that would be nearly invisible, to both live and broadcast audiences, while providing crystal-clear sound. The 6066 is discreet and visually appealing, and does not compromise on sound quality.”

 

Since its launch, the 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone has received rave reviews. Its secure, lightweight, unobtrusive and comfortable design, coupled with DPA’s renowned natural and pristine sound-quality, has led to significant sales around the world and across various market sectors, including broadcast, theatre and live sound.
