In the Holiday Season‘s classic Championship game, LSU‘s Tigers triumphed over Ohio State‘s Buckeyes, 38-24, in the 10th Anniversary of the annually televised BCS championship game. The “plug n‘ play” LightViper fiber optic audio systems were deployed by CP Communications, Inc, an Elmsford, NY-based production communications equipment and services rental firm that provides video, audio and fiber communications systems to the broadcast, theatrical, live event, film, corporate and other entertainment industries. Kurt Heitmann, CP Communication‘s VP of Marketing, commented on his firm‘s use of the LightViper: “The system transported numerous RF as well as hard-wired mics to our sub-mix trailer parked underneath the Louisiana Superdome. The audio run from the game‘s sidelines to our mixing truck was about 1,500 feet, a pretty long run. From there, we sent a conventional AES audio feed a much shorter distance over copper to the Fox-TV production vehicles for all their on-air mixes. The LightViper was used to transport all the on-field audio for the pre, post as well as in-game music which featured the LSU and Ohio State marching bands. more
