MSI Lines Comic-Con 2013 Panels With HARMAN’s AKG Microphones As Celebrities Talk TV, Movies And Comics

VIENNA, Austria – As die-hard comic fans flooded the San Diego Convention Center, Comic-Con 2013 hosted more than 100,000 visitors as well as hundreds of celebrity guests discussing their latest movie roles and ideas surrounding the comic universe. During numerous panels, stars such as Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford addressed questions from the audience through HARMAN’s AKG D5 microphones.

 

Provided by San Diego-based MSI Production Services, the D5 microphones were deployed by audio designer Rob Wisley and Eric Stahlhammer. HARMAN’s Ken Freeman, Senior Manager, Business Development, Installed Sound, was onsite to assist with the deployment. Wisley stated, “The D5’s performed very well, especially for this application, where a smooth, wide frequency response was needed in addition to a well-balanced low end for the speakers.”

 

Comic-Con panels range from upfront, star-studded talks and how-to video game tutorials, to histories of characters and story lines and Q & A sessions. With such a massive following and demand for seats in the auditoriums, the clarity of the microphones and audio signal were a major priority among the event organizers.

 

“We understand the importance of the Comic-Con convention, where the support of the fans and other participants help make this international event such a success, so it was important to support the convention speakers with reliable and high quality sound,” continued Wisley. “The D5’s performed as expected and allowed each fan to take in valuable information without missing a word.”
