Glendale, AZ (February 16, 2015)—Audio mixer Brian Sepowitz and ZenVideo used Sound Devices’ 664 field production mixer to capture the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl and many of the associated events during the week in-between recently.
Sepowitz’s week started out at the Pro Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium, where he used his Sound Devices 664 to mix many of the pre- and post-show activities live. Sepowitz recorded the audio, sent it through the two cameras that were filming, using Video Devices’ PIX, and then sent the embedded audio down the HD-SDI cable line right out to the sat truck, where it was sent to the network’s headquarters in California.
“Sound Devices 664 is designed for sound mixers in the field that need to hit the ground running,” says Sepowitz. “It is a great field mixer; the ergonomics are perfect. It’s well thought out and it is incredibly reliable, and performed remarkably during the busy football week.” The ZenVideo team also utilized a range of Sony F55, PMW-F5, PMW-F3 and Panasonic AJ-HDX900 cameras connected to Video Devices PIX 240i recorders, all in Apple ProRes422.
