Los Angeles, CA (July 17, 2009)–Production sound mixer Peter Devlin, an avid enthusiast of Lectrosonics wireless technology, is currently working in Pittsburg, PA on a forthcoming Lionsgate mixed martial arts film, Warrior.
Devlin, who relocated to Los Angeles from Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1987, currently uses a combination of four Lectrosonics SMa Super Miniature beltpack transmitters in tandem with his Venue receiver system that is stocked with four VRT receiver modules-equipment all built on Lectrosonics’ Digital Hybrid Wireless technology. With the ability to house six receiver modules inside the 1RU rackspace chassis, his Venue system still has room for expansion. This equipment is augmented by a Lectrosonics SIXPACK multi-channel wireless system with RF/power distribution for up to six Lectrosonics compact diversity receivers. For this segment of his equipment arsenal, Devlin uses his trusty Lectrosonics UM400 UHF beltpack transmitters.
Devlin’s production sound credits this year include Star Trek and Angels and Demons. The film on which he is currently working, Warrior, stars Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte.
When asked about those features of his Lectrosonics gear that he finds most notable, Devlin, who has been using Lectrosonics gear consistently since 1999, focuses on the SMa transmitters: “The compact size of the SMa transmitters is a huge plus in my line of work. The transmitter’s small size is one of its most compelling features, as it makes concealing the unit in the actor’s wardrobe much easier. On Star Trek, we had very form fitting wardrobe considerations and it was very important to be able to fully conceal the transmitters on the actors. The SMa’s did the job perfectly. Even though the SMa is a very small unit, it sacrifices nothing in terms of audio quality. I’ve been using Lectrosonics for 17 years or more and the sound quality has consistently been excellent.”
