East Stroudsburg, PA (August 3, 2009)–Law Sound & Lighting, which rents broadcast equipment to the YES Network, among others, has added Sennheiser SKM 2000 wireless mics to its inventory.
Headquartered in East Stroudsburg, Law Sound & Lighting delivers full production audio services and high-end equipment rentals to northeast Pennsylvania, the East Coast, and the world. Its broadcast clients include ESPN, ABC, FOX, and NBC, among many others, and its PA systems have supported acts as varied as BB King, James Brown, and Blue Oyster Cult.
Law rents packages that include wireless handheld mics to the YES Network for roving talent at New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets games. “We were having an annoying problem,” explained the company’s owner, MJ Law. “YES Network reporter Kim Jones watches the end of the game deep underneath thirty feet of concrete on the third base side. When she communicated with the production truck to work out the logistics of who to interview and when, we took a lot of hits. It was all pre-fade, but it was still very distracting.”
When Law heard that Sennheiser’s new SKM 2000 handheld transmitter boasts 100 mW of signal strength, he was intrigued. “There are not many manufacturer that make broadcast-grade handheld transmitters with 100 mW,” he said. “And they don’t have Sennheiser’s long history of RF technology nor the low price point of the 2000 Series. The SKM 2000 really changes the playing field!”
When Law heard that all of the units in the 2000 Series are also backwards compatible with his existing Sennheiser equipment, he was sold. “I have 40 channels of Sennheiser G2 receivers, and although we plan to upgrade to take advantage of the new frequency agility of the 2000 Series, it’s a lot easier to rotate the inventory in stages,” he said.
