Microphones for TV and Film
Broadcasters and performers are storytellers and their stories need be communicated clearly and without distraction. The microphone used can make or break the way their audience experiences that story. Point Source Audio offers a wide selection of miniature earworn or lavalier microphones for sportscasters, meteorologists and television hosts looking for the best broadcast microphone. With the rigorous demands of day-to-day production, each of our mics performs flawlessly.
Sound Mixer Reviews EMBRACE™
Andrew Jones is a location sound mixer based in Los Angeles who started in the TV and Film industry in 2004.
"Overall, I think if you are looking to upgrade the lavs in your kit and were thinking about buying Voice Technologies, Sanken or DPA … give a listen to the CO-8WL the next time you stop by your local audio shop. At the very least, totally buy an EMBRACE or two … I hate trying to moleskin/tape a lav behind an actresses ear and hide it with her hair. This has made that process EASY!!!"
All of our earmount and lavalier microphones are comfortable to wear, easy to fit and low-profile so they are perfectly discreet when camouflaging behind clothing or hair.
Broadcast Quality Audio
Excellent performances demand excellent microphones. Point Source microphones are engineered to give outstanding amplification for performance vocals with a wide frequency range. Exceptional for indoor sets or outdoor locations, SERIES8 omni microphones are waterproof to defend against damage from sweat, tears, make-up and weather. When using outdoors, it is important to use a wind screen with the microphone to reduce environmental and background noise.
Lavalier microphones offer a wide range of placement possibilities. But it can be hectic on set so having a consistent and reliable mounting solution that can be quickly fitted without a lot of fuss will be appreciated by all! The EMBRACE earmount mic easily camouflages and stays consistent despite the user's head movements. When worn as a miniature lavalier option, the microphone can be tucked away in hairlines, neckties, or behind a button.
Electronics and technology can be distracting so minimizing and concealing wires and devices is crucial in front of the camera. Point Source Audio lavalier microphones are only 4mm so they are extremely easy to conceal. The dual lavalier with built-in redundancy reduces cabling and footprint to nearly 1/2 while doubling up on-air confidence. A miniature lavalier is ideal for video-recording, reporters in the field, anchors in the studio, and on-camera talent who want the highest degree of discreetness. Whether it's a single or a redundant lavalier set-up, your talent will never have to worry about being upstaged by the microphone!
