Las Vegas, NV (January 29, 2013)—Location sound mixer David Kelson is currently using Lectrosonics RF mic products on Last Vegas, starring Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.
Having worked in location sound for the TV and film industry since 1982, Los Angeles, CA-based Kelson has amassed numerous credits, including AMC's The Walking Dead and the TV movie Steel Magnolias. Kelson relies on a sizeable assortment of Lectrosonics SM Series Super-Miniature transmitters, HM plug-on transmitters, two Venue receiver systems (fully stocked with VRT receiver modules), UCR411 receivers, and for his IFB/comm system, a T4 IFB transmitter and R1a IFB beltpack receivers-all of which employ Lectrosonics' Digital Hybrid Wireless technology.
"I've been using Lectrosonics wireless microphone systems since 1992," Kelson reports. "I augment all of my Lectrosonics equipment with the company's ALP500 shark fin and SNA600 dipole antenna systems, which go a step further toward ensuring the range and dropout-free performance so essential in my line of work."
Currently, on the Last Vegas project, Kelson has been using a combination of SM, SMV, SMQV, and HM transmitters with his two Lectrosonics Venue receiver systems, which are set up in true diversity mode, where two receivers are set to work with a single transmitter.
