Radio microphone supplier Raycom is to sign a major Wisycom deal with Sky News at BVE. Following extensive trials and appraisals Sky News will re-equip all of its ENG cameras with Wisycom radio microphone systems.
Sky will be taking almost 200 channels worth of MCR42 slot-in receivers and a selection of matching handheld, belt pack and plug-on transmitters. Raycom is also supplying Sky News with DPA microphones for some of the systems.
“The Wisycom equipment performed very well against other manufacturers, it is robust, has good range and is very user friendly in both operation and bandwidth,” said Sky News’ Head of Cameras, George Davies.
Raycom’s Pyers Easton said; “We are delighted that Sky News have chosen the Wisycom systems for such an important role. It is a glowing testament to the quality and innovation that Wisycom bring to bear in this field. We’re looking forward to signing the deal at BVE.”
