London-based Wired For Sound has been using its new SADiE LRX2 Location Audio Workstation in an innovative way to both record and individualise huge quantities of source audio in a very short timeframe.

The company runs what Director Johnnie Dymock calls “radio junkets? for various US television networks that are seeking to promote their new shows on radio. Typically, during these, DJs from a number of radio stations are flown to a relevant location (such as the Bahamas in the case of The Real Gilligan’s Island, for instance) to record a series of face to face interviews with the cast of the show. It sounds simple enough, but the numbers involved mean that logistically it can be an impressive challenge. more

AVIOM’S PERSONAL MIXERS AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS

Personal Mixers Provide Monitor Mixing and Communications System for Show’s Orchestra

LOS ANGELES, CA, FEBRUARY 27, 2009 — The 81st Academy Awards moved away from the format style of recent years, its producers opting for a more classic Hollywood approach by adding a Big Band feel. Because the show’s host, Hugh Jackman, performed in numerous musical numbers and much of the focus centered around music, communications between the broadcast crew, Musical Director Michael Giacchino, orchestra members, and the audio crew from ATK Audiotek was essential. Aviom’s Pro16® monitor mixing system was at the hub of the communication and monitoring setup, helping make each number a showstopper. more
