New York, NY (April 19, 2016)—Noel Dannemiller, a location sound mixer for major sports networks, national advertising creatives and television production companies, has been using his Audio-Technica System 10 camera-mount digital wireless system for a variety of work.
Dannemille has contributed to three seasons of the Emmy Award-winning The Amazing Race, and who has mixed location sound for shows such as Animal Planet’s Ice Cold Gold, among others. He says he had used it for a while, but hadn’t truly appreciated it until a Cleveland Cavaliers game that ESPN hired him to get.
“I had been using the Audio-Technica System 10 wireless for a few months with great success, but up to that time I had never used it at a crowded [broadcast] event. In live sports, there are no second takes, and as the final seconds roll off the clock, we were waiting to storm the floor and grab a player interview.
“I had the ATW-R1700 receiver using a balanced 1/8-inch-to-XLRM cable in the balanced setting at -20 dB, listening pre-fader to the System 10 channel, praying for clean audio. A split second later, we were interviewing a player, and the System 10’s audio sounded great. I had a boom flown above as backup, but it wasn’t needed. When we reviewed the audio for uplink, it was still solid. It felt great knowing that this $400 system performed as well as a $3,000-per-channel system.”
