What audio equipment do you need in a TV studio?

We include in this category all the equipment that is used to manage the audio of a television station.

All the signals go through the mixer, are there processed and sent, via auxiliary channels, to the speakers to be monitored, to the telephone hybrids, and to the host's in-ear monitors.

The main signal, on the other hand, is embedded into the video signal only after it has been delayed: so as to sync the visual labial with the acoustic one.

The syncing between audio and video can be achieved by using specific audio delayers or, if available, by using a video mixer with audio inputs.

Of course, you also definitely need high-quality desk radio microphones (gooseneck and cardioid condenser) with their own splitter antenna system - to be mounted in a rack.
