New Orleans, LA (December 16, 2014)—Robert C. Bigelow, New Orleans-based production sound mixer for CBS TV’s NCIS: New Orleans, employs an arsenal of Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone technology on the show.
Bigelow, whose career in music and film that spans the better part of 30 years, reports that his Lectrosonics equipment includes eight SMV, four SMQV, and six UM400a beltpack transmitters as well as two of the company’s HM handheld transmitters. On the receiving side, he uses four SRb dual channel slot mount receivers in an Octopack on his main cart along with UCR411a compact receivers in his bags.
He noted, “In addition to the transmitters and receivers, I’m also using New Endian LLC’s LectroRM remote app for the iPhone plus Lectrosonics SNA600a adjustable dipole antennas and ZSC24 passive RF splitters. The ability to scan quickly for open RF is invaluable and the durability of the equipment is impressive. The ability of my Lectrosonics equipment to endure perspiration, water, plus all the running and stunts that occur during production is a hands down necessity. In my line of work, the pace is fast, hard, and ever-changing. No two environments are the same. When it's time to roll, I need to know that my gear is solid and reliable. From the wet, humid swamps to the chaotic hustle and RF congestion of the French quarter, Lectrosonics delivers every single day.”
