SPORTS BROADCASTING - Some Examples

TV PRODUCTION

Dirk Alaerts, TV Sound Engineer talks about a few of the many applications for DolphinEar in his broadcast work

"I use DolphinEar in a broadcast environment (I'm a sound engineer for television). I used it already in a live broadcast of a athletic meeting (steeple-chase) and in a triathlon-broadcast. I know a lot of audio technicians who are searching for a hydrophone but think that the Bruel & Kjaer (DPA) is the only one on the market (costing 10 times more...)."I shall recommend the DolphinEar now!!! Thank you for this great tool!!"

I used the DolphinEar last week in a trailer for a daily show on our national television: the host tries to interview people under water.... Great result. 

- Dirk Alaerts,

"I used the DolphinEar in different situations: sports broadcasts, candid camera's with water-action and now we are using it in our Belgian Big Brother house. The participants have to do a competition every week. And that is a lot associated with water. As example: during 24h/day one of the participants has to stay under water in a giant sort of aquarium. To capture the underwater sound we used the DolphinEar."


DolphinEar hydrophones are used throught the world by broadcast organisations and film studios. Here the hydrophone is set up for a Big Brother competition broadcast on Belgian TV. A DolphinEar hydrophone was buried in turf to capture the sound of horses approaching a jump.

"I used DolphinEar in a live broadcast of a steeple-chase!" (DolphinEar was buried in turf to provide 'ambient' sound as the horses approached a jump.)



Humourous interview between two scuba divers recorded by DolphinEar hydrophone Sounds being captured during TV coverage of an indoor swimming championship by a DolphinEar hydrophone

"Next week you can hear the DolphinEar mike broadcasting live at our national swimming championships!!!

"DolphinEar is a very good muddy and wet contact microphone" DolphinEar hydrophones used to capture live sounds for broadcast during a triathlon event.

"We used the DolphinEar last week at the 2002 world championship cyclo cross. We placed it on a wooden bridge where the cyclists were passing. DolphinEar is a very good muddy and wet contact microphone."

BIG BROTHER!
