Making Life Easy For Voice Recording At BBC Northern Ireland

Date: 16/03/2010
Making Life Easy For Voice Recording At BBC Northern Ireland Glensound Electronics have launched two new devices that help the non technical user achieve a perfect voice recording. The Atomic Voiceover 08 and 08+, are essentially high quality microphone pre-amps for dynamic, condenser or ribbon mics. The Voiceover 08+ was developed for voice recording into video editing systems at BBC Northern Ireland.
 
The unique feature of the units is in Glensound's development of an Automatic Gain Adjust (AGA) system. This is a very sophisticated gain adjust that takes a snapshot of the audio levels over a 7 second sample period. The user simply presses the 'Take Level / Mic Gain' button and reads a sample passage for level. The AGA system is able to set the input gain level over this period whilst allowing a suitable headroom for any louder passages. This has the benefit over traditional AGC systems that the level is constant and does not increase background noise during quiet passages for example.
 
The second key function of the Voiceover units is monitoring. There is an audio input that is only fed into the users headphones, allowing them to monitor context audio for their voiceover.
 
Marc Wilson, Glensound's Sales & Marketing Manager, can see wide appeal for the new units, 'There are many mic pre-amps available, but our intention was to develop one that delivered a constant high quality audio signal to the recording or play out device, that could be used by anyone at a facility with no more than 30 seconds of instruction. As the monitoring is included, the Voiceover units can be used independently of a mixer, and just connect to a recording device or PCs audio connections.'
 
The Voiceover 08 is a compact unit that can mount under desks, under monitors, or in a traditional 19inch rack
 
The Voiceover 08+ is a 1u 19inch unit that adds an important extra function on top of LED PPM meters. It has a front panel 'play/record' switch with rear panel loops. This is used to trigger the external automation control or recording device into play or record mode. It also changes the mix in the users headphones.
 
At BBC Northern Ireland, the Voiceover 08+ is being used by reporters to record voiceovers into their Synergy video editing system.
 
The Atomic Voiceover 08 is available now at a list price of £495.00 excluding VAT.
The Atomic Voiceover 08+ is available now at a list price of £995.00 excluding VAT.
