A particularly eye-catching highlight on the Sennheiser stand at IBC2017 was the MKE 2 elements for the GoPro HERO4, the performance of which was being shown via stand footage from the Mercedes-Benz Kitesurf World Cup, a lifestyle water sports tournament that took place in August.
Achim Gleissner, commercial manager, Broadcast & Media at Sennheiser, said: “Kitesurfing is the ideal sport for demonstrating how you can produce great footage even when you’re exposed to wind and water. We are expecting videos with a sound quality that has never been possible before.
“Good audio technology is the basis for a successful production.
This is true whether it’s being created on a computer in a home studio or at a mixing console in a professional sound studio, and equally true whether a smartphone or a broadcast camera is being used,” continued Gleissner.
