Motor Trend Test Drives with Wisycom

Hitting the road in Europe, Motor Trend captured a few test drives for posterity, grabbing audio via Wisycom wireless gear.

Montvernier, France (August 8, 2018)—Motor Trend magazine has been producing videos of its test drives for some time, and recently took Wisycom wireless equipment along for the ride for episodes in France, Finland and California.

Inside the Audio of House Hunters

First launched in 1949, Motor Trend now documents its road tests with video productions on its website and Motor Trend Channel on YouTube, which has more than 20 million subscribers. When Motor Trend got behind the wheel of the 2018 Range Rover Sport SVR for Driven – France, and forthcoming episodes in Finland and Laguna Seca, CA, Wisycom was there to capture the audio.

Selected by sound mixer Daniel S. McCoy, CAS, owner of ToneMesa, a professional audio production company, a Wisycom MTP41 wideband bodypack transmitter was paired with a MCR42-S2 dual true diversity UHF miniature camera receiver and MPR30-ENG wideband ENG receiver, in conjunction with DPA Microphones’ d:screet CORE 4061 miniature omnidirectional microphone.

“The Wisycom elements of our setup have the sonic brilliance, dynamic range and fidelity necessary to achieve an optimal sound,” says McCoy. “Using the Wisycom system, we are able to feed the exact signal from our DPA transducers into our completely digital eight-channel Sonosax SX-R4+ recorder.”
