Los Angeles, CA (September 25, 2013)—Lectrosonics walked the red carpet with entertainment industry publication Sound & Picture at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 15.
The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, traditionally held the weekend before the live Primetime Emmys telecast, are largely dedicated to key technical disciplines and behind-the-scenes crafts essential to television production, including art direction, cinematography, hairstyling, makeup, music, picture editing, sound editing and mixing, and more. This year’s event took place on Sunday, September 15 at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE. Neil Patrick Harris, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, as well as numerous other notables, were on hand to present the awards.
Sound & Picture’s Daron James served as the producer of the red carpet interviews while Lauren Mora served as the host. Mora and James conducted interviews with guests and nominees prior to the start of the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony.
For this project, James worked behind the scenes—producing and operating the camera that was outfitted with a Lectrosonics dual-channel slot mount ENG receiver. For her interviews, Mora used a Lectrosonics HH handheld transmitter outfitted with the HHC cardioid capsule and an HHXTND mic flag extender.
“The interviews took place just a few feet away from the Nokia Center,” James explained. “For this project, the SRb was outfitted with a Lectrosonics SRBATTSLEDTOP battery sled that was powered by a Sony NP-F570 as well as the company’s SRSLEEVE that enabled the SRb to be mounted to the camera. I was really impressed with the system’s RF performance. Being in downtown LA, there’s potential RF interference coming at you from all sides. We also had to contend with frequencies being used for the show inside the Nokia and, of course, there were all the additional media organizations next to us fighting for an open frequency. There were over 100 different media outlets along the red carpet, so it was pretty busy from an RF perspective.”
