VJT: Hiding Lav Microphones

Sennheiser Debuts the First AVB Microphone

ImageSennheiser has introduced the first prototype microphone that employs Audio Video Bridging (AVB) technology. AVB allows time-synchronized low latency streaming services through IEEE 802 networks.  Audio and video equipment connections historically were analog one-way, single-purpose and point-to-point. Even digital A/V standards often were point-to-point and one-way such as S/PDIF for audio and the serial digital interface (SDI) for video. This resulted in large confusing masses of cables, especially in professional and high-end consumer applications.

$36 Sescom Cable Helps Solve DSLR Audio Monitoring Issues

ImageWhen I bought my Panasonic DMC-GH2 camera, I really wasn't thinking about using it for video. Then―boom―it hit me how good the camera is both for stills and video and how it makes a very, very compact video package that I can carry anywhere.  It was the light weight and low light picture quality that first attracted me, but I was soon rethinking video. Being of the old school, however, one thing bothered me. I couldn't monitor the sound. The DSLR manufacturers―for their own reasons―refused to put headphone monitoring jacks on this category of cameras.

Clair Global's Antenna Used for Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting

ImageWhen construction workers decorated a twenty-foot tree with paper garlands, cranberry strings and the tinfoil ends of blasting caps in the early years of the Great Depression, they had no way of knowing they were starting a beloved holiday tradition.  Today, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in midtown Manhattan is a national symbol of the season. The tree's lighting ceremony has blossomed into a two-hour television special, complete with nostalgic hosts, the Radio City Rockettes, and performances by pop music icons, both contemporary and enduring.
