DPA Microphones Deploys Audio Tech For Danish Dating Show

News Image
DPA Microphones has deployed audio technology to help produce Danish dating show, 'Faith Hope & Tinder'.

The equipment was supplied to each contestant participating in the show to ensure dates could be filmed without the presence of a sound engineer.

An iPhone, DPA MMA-A Digital Audio Interface and a d:screet SC4060-BM lavalier microphone were utilised during production.

Sound was recorded to the iPhones via d:vice, a pocket-sized two-channel microphone preamp and A/D converter that offers mono, dual and stereo capabilities and can capture or stream audio in quality previously only available in the studio.

"From the outset we wanted a technical solution that would be non-invasive yet would deliver the broadcast quality sound we needed," said Lotte Dyva Toubro, Production Manager and partner in Bermuda, the Copenhagen-based production company that created the programme for Denmark's TV2 channel. "It also had to be very easy to use because our participants are ordinary people covering a wide age range and some of them don’t have extensive technical skills.

"Over a period of four months we followed seven participants as they searched to find love via the internet. Most managed to operate the technology without any problems - we had one or two people who forgot to turn on their audio equipment but those were the only times when the system failed. Generally the system worked very well, and participants found it very easy to use. The audio quality was amazing, which made editing much quicker. Also, given the nature of the programme, the DPA solution was very unobtrusive. The microphones are so small that they can either be used as lavaliers or placed on a table so that they pickup audio from both the contestant and his or her date."

Automating the entire workflow was also a consideration for Bermuda, which set up a cloud server where material recorded by participants could be easily uploaded. This automated file gathering system was designed to be very straightforward so that it wouldn't baffle non-technical people and would also save Bermuda from having to visit participants at home to collect content. All the participant had to do was press stop on their recording app and the content was immediately uploaded. This gave Bermuda's post production staff quick access to the recorded content so that they could start editing straight away.

Faith, Hope and Tinder is currently being broadcast on TV2.
