Following extensive trials and appraisals Sky News are to re-equip all of their ENG cameras with Wisycom radio microphone systems supplied by Raycom. Sky will be taking almost 200 channels worth of MCR42 slot-in receivers and a selection of matching hand held, belt pack and plug-on transmitters. Raycom are 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's 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
