New York, NY (September 10, 2014)—Production sound mixer Larry Hoff, CAS uses his arsenal of Lectrosonics wireless microphone equipment to capture the action on the CBS TV show Unforgettable.
Hoff, whose credits include Law and Order, Law and Order – Special Victims Unit, and Fringe, reports that the bulk of his work takes place in the greater New York City area, though he has also recorded sound for a variety of TV and film projects in Canada, India, England and Italy. “I’ve been using Lectrosonics equipment for over 15 years,” he reports.
“I have a Lectrosonics Venue receiver system that is fully outfitted with six VRT receiver modules, four UCR411a receivers, as well as four of the older UCR211 receivers. I use several of the company’s transmitters, including HM plug-on units, SMQV and SMa Super Miniature transmitters, and UM400a beltpack systems. For IFB, I use the Lectrosonics T4 transmitter and the R1a receiver and I also use the company’s ALP series shark fins and SNA dipole antennas among my various accessories.”
RF agility is an extremely important consideration for Hoff. “I carry transmitters in both block twenty-one and twenty-six because New York has one of the highest rates of RF traffic in the world,” he said. “With the Lectrosonics scanning system, I know very quickly what I’m up against in any given area and I can tell which block to use.”
