ITS AN UPMIXER HAT TRICK  TELEVISION MOBILE ORDERS THREE UPM-1s

Irish Outside Broadcast facilities company Television Mobile Ltd, based in County Cork, have purchased three SoundField UPM-1 stereo-to-5.1 upmix processors for use in two of their five-strong OB fleet.

TVM, who carry out much coverage of Irish international sports fixtures for satellite broadcaster BSkyB, bought the upmixers after seeing them in operation in trucks owned by UK OB company Telegenic during work for Sky Sports. "We had already seen them at the IBC show a couple of years ago, when they were launched," explains TVM's Head Of Sound Pat Keogh, "and we'd been wanting to add them to our trucks ever since!"

TVM already own a SoundField DSF-2 digital microphone system in one of their OB vehicles, where it is used to capture discrete-channel 5.1 stadium ambience and crowd noise on TVMs large-scale outside broadcasts. One of the new UPM-1s will be used in this truck to upmix VTR output and sound effects in stereo to 5.1. The other two UPM-1s are destined for use in another TVM OB vehicle, where one of them will also upmix VTR sound and effects. The third processor will upmix the output of the stereo mic pair used to capture crowd ambience in that truck. The second and third SoundField units made their debut on TVM's coverage of the Heineken Cup in November 2011.

"Our aim is to get everything into 5.1 now," concludes Pat Keogh. "We have a new truck being built at the moment which will come into service in February, and that will have a SoundField DSF-2 mic system and a UPM-1 from the outset."

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
