  1. Microsoft plans to spend $10 billion to bring broadband to rural America Seems like a good idea until you start to read: "The project will rely on a new “white-space” technology, which beams internet data over unused television broadcast frequencies. Microsoft hopes to work with the government to collect information from local television stations about what part of their television spectrum goes unused." I have had the experience of a major sporting event reduced to only hard wired gear working thank to the stadium management company going to a white space data network, not fun.
  2. Another vote for a Pelican 1620
  3. I don't think you will find Neo Luddites on this board John B Neo-Luddite is used to describe those who are considered to be anti-technology, or those who dislike or have a difficult time understanding and using modern science and technology. The word Luddite is a historical political movement term used to describe people who are opposed to technological innovations.
  4. Jeff describes this board as "Feel free to talk about anything and everything" Got it nb: guitar players/ Steely Dan fans, this will absorb 15 minutes of your life Riffs In The Key of Steely Dan
  5. John B. I didn't take it as put down. I think the OP had a good point. I never understood why I couldn't overdub with my 788t, or remix a take where I missed a cue, I used to be able to do it with a razor blade.
  6. John B, there are worse things you can say about a fellow mixer. I think Davin's point is well taken. When can we expect audio manufacturers to play well with each other, rather than "the my way or the highway" school ?
  7. Getting a Shure guy to hold a Lectrosonics plug on transmitter while talking about his new product, priceless
  8. They have an adapter that would use a Sony L battery.
  9. >Lectro is leading the charge and trying to open a door for themselves and all the other manufacturers, including big ones, to copy and market the same patented product.< Lectrosonics is not leading a charge, they issued a new product, one which Zaxcom says violates their patent. We will see how it plays out.
  10. I have worn a Sound Devices 744t and used a wireless transmitter to send signal to camera - am I going to be sued ?
  11. Where would this audio be recorded, would it be a disc in a truck ?
  12. nice
  13. Thank you
