Toronto, Canada (July 19, 2010)--CTV, one of the most popular television networks in Canada, has been using Neumann digital microphone technology.
CTV’s post sound supervisor, Michael Nunan, recalled one particularly difficult remote setup last year when he was filming aboard the USS Nimitz, a U.S. Navy super-carrier. He relates, “The powerful radar systems aboard the Nimitz and her aircraft combine to create an enormous amount of electromagnetic ‘pollution,’ which induced all manner of annoying and awful noise on virtually every recording I made once I was on deck. It would have been a total loss if it weren’t for the Solution-D microphones—they were completely impervious to the noise and degradation.”
He continues, “From the straightforward function of providing stunning fidelity to the remarkable way in which they allow us to vastly simplify our technical setup, Neumann’s Solution-D digital microphones excel. In a marketplace where a desire for better quality is seldom considered sufficient grounds for spending additional money on the audio portion of the television signal, the Solution-D’s tremendous flexibility and functionality has allowed me to make a compelling case to dramatically improve our fidelity without a correspondingly significant impact on budgets.”
