  1. Thanks for all the input. I have passed on these suggestions and some others I found to the producer. Hopefully one of the suggestions will work for their budget and the talent will be happy.
  2. I have a client that is recording some 40 video podcasts over the next 6 months or so in a studio on a virtual set. All of the guests are viewed and heard via Zoom. I am micing him and using a Comtek with the typical curly in the ear, news reporter style for him to hear the Zoom audio. We just finished the first six episodes this week. I have about 25 days before the next recording session. The presenter is ok with the one size fits many ears, but not loving it. I suggested we go with an audiologist molded earpiece. What I am lacking is a company that would take that mold and make a single IEM. Plenty of musician molded earpieces out there in the hundreds of dollars to several thousand. So does anyway have some names of companies that can make single IEM? Tnx David
  3. Nice solution Cody. Usually lots of V mounts on most sets. Never run out!!
  4. I imagine you are right Mark. Netflix budgets probably suck. Still wires showing or printing through clothing. Not to mention excessive clothing noise. Sad.
  5. My wife and I have been binge watching all of the seasons of the series "Longmire". Been to many of the locations that the series was filmed at. Walt's cabin in the Valle's Caldera offers amazing vistas and is worth a visit if you are ever in the area. My observation is regarding the quality of the sound. Before Netflix took over production, it was of a high quality. We are currently watching Netflix produced episodes. Apparently wireless lavs became the standard. Rarely hear a boom in many of the scenes. Lavs poorly concealed, many cases of clothing noise, a large disparity in levels between actors and comb filtering occurring when actors are very close to each other. I don't know if these sound issues occurred because of production wanting to safe money, move faster or lack of experience on the sound crew, whether production or post. Sadly I find myself focusing of the poor sound instead of the story.
  6. When I worked in the corporate world, if a fixed asset could show a payback in 12 months or less approval to purchase it typically happened. I generally have applied that same criteria to my own purchases.
  7. Andy Cooper was my go to before he started making mixers.
  8. Solid piece of kit. Hanging on for the 24 pak.
  9. Another plus one for the Lectro team. They sorted out my problem which I caused, with no fuss. Thank you Kasey.
  10. Thank you Karl. I have started a dialog via email with Kasey. I will call for Gerald and work through this. Tnx David
  11. lectrosonics smwb stuck in eu hybrid along with IFB and mode 3. Anyone now how to reset to factory? Firmware update did nothing. Perhaps a secret combination of button pushing!!
  12. I have no personal experience with either charger. I have been a ham for many years and used Motorola radios, batteries and chargers in the allowed amateur radio frequencies for most of those years. I currently have four Motorola radios along with the associated chargers. My experience has been their products are mostly bullet and idiot proof. If the price points and specs are similar I would go with the Motorola products every time. YMMV
  13. I have a 12' (365cm) 1/4 turn pole for many years. Overall a good pole. Fairly stiff, though there are some stiffer poles out there. Not a huge fan of the 1/4 turn. I prefer a full rotation locking collar. I have other poles that I used, it just happens to be the one in this length I have.
  14. Looking forward to September. I wish some of the dealers here in the states could do the upgrade.
