- Hey there, I'm Robbie Carman. Welcome back to another episode of Video Gear Weekly. This week, we have a special guest here with us. This is Cheryl Ottenritter, hello Cheryl, how are you? - Hello Robbie, I'm fine. - Cheryl is an audio mixer, sound designer and kind of knower of most things audio. I know when I have an audio question, I'm always going to Cheryl to say "Hey Cheryl, how does this work in the world of audio?" because my background, of course is as a colorist. I'm pretty good with picture, but when it comes to audio sometimes I get a little confused. - Ehhh. - Yeah, a little iffy. So we have Cheryl on set this week to talk a little bit about sort of a technology, and sort of a microphone use, and that is using a wireless Lav.
Now Cheryl, wireless Lavs are really popular, aren't they? - Absolutely, we're using one now. - That's true, we are using them right now to record. - Exactly. - A wireless Lavalier microphone of course, allows you to cut the wires and have a Lav mic on a subject. That's really important for a lot of reasons so this week we're going to talk about some of the benefits and some of the cons or drawbacks of using a wireless system, right? - Exactly. - We'll talk about attaching a reciever. That is sort of, kind of how we communicate. The reciever, then we'll talk about the transmitter as well, and what goes into those. - Right. - I think the thing I'm most looking forward to talking with you about, is sort of best practices in using these mics, right? - Exactly.
- So, the little gotchas about how to place the microphones, things to do with batteries and interference and all that kinda stuff. So, it's going to be a full week - Absolutely. - And sort of a full episode here talking about everything with wireless Lavs, but I think its going to be a fun one, so make sure you come back. Up next, we'll talk about the benefits of using a wireless mic.
