Los Angeles, CA (July 15, 2014)—Digital Hybrid Wireless technology from Lectrosonics is used to capture audio on CBS’ TV show Lucky Dog.
On Lucky Dog, airing Saturday mornings, animal trainer and behaviorist Brandon McMillan, the host, visits his local shelter to rescue ‘hard-to-love, out-of control, untrained, and unadoptable dogs.’ He then takes the dog back to his ranch for training before finding each one a home.
“For Lucky Dog,” said Danny Hammer, the show’s location sound mixer, “I’m using Lectrosonics SMV Super-Miniature and UM400a beltpack transmitters with a combination of SRb dual-channel slot mount and UCR411a compact receivers, plus an R1a beltpack IFB receiver. Depending upon the nature of the shoot, I’m typically using anywhere from one to five wireless channels.”
Hammer commented, “When working on a show like Lucky Dog, you need to be able to create distance between yourself, the talent, and the animals being trained so as not to distract the process. Knowing that you have a reliable and durable wireless system is key to making everything come together, and that’s what Lectrosonics provides.”
