  1. Congrats to Roger Stevenson, Keith Rogers, Scott Weber, & Kyle O’Neal for the Emmy win for "Westworld - The Bicameral Mind" (winner for Outstanding Sound Mixing, 1 hour comedy or drama series). Great job, guys! And congrats to all the nominees - all these shows had great sound: House of Cards, Better Call Saul, Mr. Robot, and Stranger Things!
  2. Indy film aftermath- my sound experience

    Thanks for coming back in to tell us how it went!
  3. Experience in Russia

    All I can add is that our Russian dealers typically do buy mostly block 26 equipment, and a few things in higher blocks (27, 29) that are legal there but not in the US.
  4. Trade Shows and Expos

    Plasa isn't likely to have much concentration of field equipment. However, IBC is like the NAB of Europe. All major manufacturers of field equipment will have equipment on display there, mostly in Hall 8.
  5. Ssm with mcr42

    It should work quite well - there are quite a few SSMs out there being used with Sennheiser 3000 and 5000 Series transmitters. It will not, however, send battery level info.
  6. Frequency Coordination

    A comprehensive program like IAS generally makes coordination quick and painless. It does cost $500, however. IMO it pays for itself in time and by the elimination of frustration, though. The program includes most makes & model ranges of the wireless you own or will encounter. I use this software almost daily to either do my own coordinations or assist others with theirs. A less expensive app for this purpose is Freq. Finder, and I know a lot of people use it as well. While not as comprehensive as AES, FF works on a mobile device and is easy to use.
  7. Lectro Power Solution

    Robert - yes, the SRAES3 can output either analog or digital. There is a switch on the side to make the choice of what comes out of the TA3 connectors.
  8. A new player in the installed wireless game.

    Looks like a really well thought-out system for point-to-point wireless audio.
  9. When lavs attack

    LOL that is.... something.
  10. IMO 2 frames out would be the max - that is already 1/12 second or 83 ms (at 24 fps), and would be noticed by some people as "not quite right", as Joel points out above.
  11. Need 3 wirless mics

    Of the bands you list from their manual, the only ones that are legal for operation in the US (assuming those units have FCC type approval) are: 518-542 572-596 620-670
  12. Lectro SMQV and dweedle tones

    Glad to hear it, Alen!
  13. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Jeremiah, for an accurate estimate of turnaround time, please contact sales.repair@lectrosonics.com and let them know how many units you have, and the serial numbers.
  14. NAB party- lost bag of equipment. * FOUND *

    Kathy Baca just received this note from the Satay staff: Hi Kathy, You're such a sweetheart! I was just going to email you this but you beat me to it! Yes! My staff found the bag this morning sitting outside our patio-- tucked away under a stack of chairs (OMG!)
  15. NAB party- lost bag of equipment. * FOUND *

    FWIW what I remember from that night is that I set up their Bose L1 Compact speaker array in about the center of the room along the wall facing the street, and used one of our SR receivers with a rechargeable battery to feed the speaker (from an HH transmitter). We borrowed an extension cable from the staff. The staff at Satay then offered the use of their microphone and cable, and I think it was a black & green bag that the guy was holding. This was while we were setting up. We let them know that we didn't need it as we were covered with our own equipment. I think they took it away at that point and I wonder if they misplaced it? There was a lot going on. I don't remember their bag with the microphone & cable being near the Bose speaker at the end of the night when I grabbed our receiver and XLR adapter cable during pack up.
