Wisycom Solutions Deliver For 'The Taste'

News Image
'The Taste', a cooking show on SAT.1, has selected Wisycom's wireless systems to help deliver its fifth season.

The programme was recorded in the studios of the Bavaria in Munich-Grünwald by TV Skyline. Andreas L. Hain, TV Skyline's head of sound, played a key role in ensuring that the cooks and teams were equipped to deliver clear audio to viewers' living rooms.

"The big challenge in this production is the high number of different signals and the very dense frequency spectrum," Hain explained. "The city of Munich is heavily burdened with DVB-T, LTE and other signals. In addition, wireless technology is already in use in the other studios on the Bavaria site, so we had to work flexibly. That is where the enormous switching bandwidth of the Wisycom systems really showed its strengths."

The main set in the television studio was covered by several pairs of antennas, with the signals on an MAT288, 8-way antenna matrix, combined and distributed to the receivers. A total of 36 microphone channels were used. The cooks and teams of the show were accompanied by mobile EB teams, equipped with MCR42S receivers in their pockets. Due to the simple operation of the EB receivers, a quick change of the filmed person was possible at any time. In addition, 10 in-ear tracks were added for protagonists and moderators whose stations were summed with the CSI16T Passive Combiner and broadcast centrally.

"We also need absolutely stable reception in critical situations," Hain continued. "Since using Wisycom's systems, the use of wireless technology has not caused us any headaches, even in more complicated productions like 'The Taste.' The systems are absolutely reliable and designed to meet the highest demands."

Equipment used for the project included MRK960 2-channel rack receiver, MAT288 Active, remote controllable antenna matrix, MCR42S EB receiver, MTP40S / 41S bodypack transmitter, MTK952 dual stereo in-ear transmitter, CSI16T 16-way combiner, and MPR30-IM InEar Receiver.

Wisycom is distributed in Germany by Audio-Technica Ltd. NDL Deutschland.
