  1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Los Angeles, CA Gordon Moore of Lectrosonics To Hold Webinar On The Spectrum Transition - On August 26th, 2018, Gordan Moore of Lectrosonics will conduct a live webinar on the transition out of the 600 MHz band of the UHF spectrum, along with the new masking regulations about to go into effect. At the request of IATSE Local 695, and the vendor community in Hollywood, Moore will attempt to clear up the confusion surrounding the upcoming FCC deadlines. From Gordon Moore: Still confused or concerned about the Spectrum Transition? IATSE Local 695 with the support of our entire vendor community, have invited Gordon Moore of Lectrosonics to have an online GoToMeeting event which will discuss the spectrum changes, the regulatory changes and the details of the future deadlines as the transition winds its way to completion. He will cover certifications, Part 15 v Part 74, deviation and spectral mask changes (what IS the ETSI mask?), and the impact on the location sound mixer. The session should last between 45 minutes to an hour and there will be a Q&A session at the end. This session is limited to 250 on-line attendees – but if we actually “sell out”, we will schedule additional sessions in September. This discussion will be brand and product neutral and cover the regulations and changes that affect your current gear and your future gear considerations.

    Favorite CF Card reader with USB 3.0 interface?

    Using both the Delkin and SanDisk current offerings, both work flawlessly, and I'm really appreciating the speed of USB3!

    Black Magic Smartview Duo

    Almost everything I have done in the last four years has been HD, and the BM Duo's rock. 1920 x 1200. As much as I like the Marshall products (I have a V-MD171 modular on my cart), the Lynx 702 is only 1024 x 600. Use pigtails and barrels to keep strain off of the units...

    TIMECODE - TCBuddy vs Ambien Lockit

    I like and support every manufacturer named above. Several have announced, at one time or another, that they're goal was to work cooperatively - a voluntary open platform for on-set creating and sharing appropriate metadata and time code. When the Ambient guys visited last year and gave their presentation at Trew LA, they were very candid - they felt an open platform would encourage innovation and would have a positive effect on all who participated. The last time I was able to talk to the brilliant Glenn Sanders, I encouraged him to open up ZaxNet, to add to the cooperative effort. Just imagine never writing a scene and take number - the script supervisor creates it and every file generated, image or sound, has it. Perhaps retuning ten channels of radio mics (receivers and transmitters) with one click of a pull-down menu. Jay APPLY FOR YOUR FCC LICENSE NOW!

    FCC / Spectrum Auction Update - May 6, 2014

    Serves me right for not spending enough time here. First. We will probably lose 600 MHz. Not without a fight, though. To view the official debates: http://apps.fcc.gov/...oceeding=08-167 click on the 08-167 for the list. Kudos to Shure for footing the bill on legal.. For the future, we need to band together as the professional film and television professionals who make their living using wireless mics. If you have a license, or have applied, please submit an email with your name, call letters (or the words 'application pending', your location, and union affiliation, if affiliated, to: part74pro@yahoo.com tell your friends.

    $76 BILLION in cash. Still no dividend?

    No offense Matthew, but this is the lamest shit flying! For example, the Koch Bros., for over ten years conspired illegally to control the election process in the US via illegally obtained caging lists. When investigations into their activities started to bear fruit, they created the Citizens United case, paid every cent it took to get it to the Supreme Court, had their sharpest staff counsel represent the case before the court, and had it passed due to justices who had been specifically backed in their nominations by the Koch's influence. Most people think of CU as primarily allowing unlimited donations to political campaigns via non-profit fronts, but the primary reason was to make legal, the previous ten years of patently illegal activity on the part of the Koch's. If a law is passed by illegal influence...

    Sound carts on process trailers/camera cars.

    Any of the solid state recorders won't be affected by the g-forces, in fact even the traditional hard drives are very resistant to g-forces. Noise is an issue, though! Jay

    Briefcase Mixers - Cooper vs Neve

    Wyatt, I challenge you to back up this statement. Andy designed all of his desks around Dean Jensen's CAD mic transformers which are phase accurate to better than 65KHz. Inherent distortion? Before his mix desks, Andy was famous for building filters which had an excess of 200KHz band pass, in order to insure linearity throughout the 20/20K spectrum. Jay (OK, I'm biased. I own the first 106+1 Andy shipped, a 208Dv.2, and a custom modded 306.)
  15. Phantom powering (48 or 12VDC between pins 1 and 2, and 1 and 3) is used primarily because it won't damage most non-condenser mics, whereas T power (Tonader - 12VDC between pins 2 and 3) will toast a ribbon mic immediately! In today's world, Phantom power is safe with virtually all mics, but interestingly enough, some electronically balanced outputs can be adversely affected by Phantom power (xfmr balanced outputs couldn't care less...), most notably the Lectro Venues, which can be damaged when connected to a hot Phantom powered input.
