At IBC2014, TSL Products presented new models in its Soundfield DSF digital broadcast surround-sound microphone line, incorporating major new features, such as self-testing, alarming, and correction capabilities that allow accurate monitoring of the system when capturing audio at live-broadcast events.

According to the company, top audio engineer Jonathan Freed, a freelance network mixer, relies on TSL Products’ SoundField DSF-B to capture the action and atmosphere of this year’s pro football and basketball games across the U.S. Freed frequently deploys the SoundField DSF-B to capture surround sound in both expansive, outdoor stadiums filled with 60,000-80,000 sports fans and enclosed arenas housing 20,000. The SoundField DSF-B offers Freed easy setup, flexible operation, reliable performance, and excellent sound quality.

“The SoundField DSF-B digital broadcast system allows me to control the ambience to ensure that the audio of the cheering fans doesn’t overpower the audio of the sports commentators and the live action,” Freed points out. “Furthermore, it is very convenient for me to be able to change the directional parameters from my workspace in the OB truck when working in the field, to guarantee that the audio space matches my vision of what the arena or stadium should sound like in that perspective. The SoundField DSF-B digital broadcast system delivers that capability perfectly.”
