Spanish Broadcaster Uses DPA Microphones On Reality TV Show

Spanish broadcaster RTVE selected DPA Microphones to use on its reality TV Show 'Operación Triunfo'.

DPA's d:facto 4018V Vocal Microphone was chosen for the singing talent programme.

Operación Triunfo ran from October 2017 to February 2018, and the winner, Amala Romero, will now represent Spain alongside fellow contestant Alfred Garcia at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

RTVE wanted to return the show to its original live format. This meant capturing the atmosphere of a Gala concert by having contestants sing in front of a live audience each week, on a stage with monitors and a large format PA. Given that these were inexperienced performers, it was vital that the microphone used could deliver clear natural sound, high separation and extreme sound level handling.

On-set mixing technician Roc Mateu chose the d:facto 4018V because it offered exceptional sensitivity, directionality and reliability in front of the monitors. DPA's Spanish distributor Seesound supplied 18 microphones – one for each contestant. The fact that the microphones always kept the same timbre and dynamics, even when used by inexperienced singers, was a bonus.

Operación Triunfo attracted an audience of more than five million viewers – the highest viewing figures since the show was first broadcast 13 years ago. It is likely that the show will return for a 10th series later this year.
