TASCAM Captures Voices of the Dead
TASCAM Captures Voices of the DeadTASCAM DR-series field recorders are used in a wide range of applications, ranging from broadcast and film to sound design, education, and much more. But even the TASCAM team didn't anticipate that the DR-701D, DR-100mkIII, and other DR-series recorders would prove particularly well suited to investigating paranormal phenomena-more colloquially, "ghost hunting." Such is indeed the case, according to Gavin Kelly, the host and lead investigator for Amazon Prime's television series Paranormal Journey: Into the Unknown. For their broadcasts, Kelly and partner/cohost Paula Purcell-also known as the Phantasmic Ghost Hunters, or PGH-video their explorations into paranormal phenomena and show the raw, uncut footage-no editing, no tricks.

K-Tek Introduces Klassic Counterweights
K-Tek Introduces Klassic Counterweights
To celebrate their 20-year anniversary K-Tek brings back a beloved classic Boom Pole Accessory: the K-Tek Klassic Counterweight, which was previously also known as the Hodge’s Weight.
As shooting days and individual take lengths continue to grow longer, boom pole operators everywhere are fighting fatigue. Even though K-Tek’s graphite boom poles are some of the lightest in the industry, a rigged boom pole might actually “feel” heavier throughout a long shooting day. Although the weight of the dressed pole may only be four pounds, it’s the downward movement force of the microphone and mount at the far end of a long pole that’s the culprit. Due to the length of the boompole acting like a lever, the low weight of the microphone and mount becomes amplified.

MKH Shotgun Microphones Serve as a Key Storytelling Tool as a Superior Court Judge Leads Homeless Citizens on The Road to Recovery
In early 2013, Director Mark Hayes read a story about a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, Craig Mitchell, who started the Midnight Mission running club consisting of former substance abusers, ex-convicts, homeless people and others who fell on hard times — either by making the wrong choices at earlier points in their lives, or by simple misfortune. Immediately sensing the emotional gravity and compelling human dimension of the story, Hayes and his partner, producer Gabriele Hayes, requested a meeting with Judge and began the journey towards creating their feature documentary, Skid Row Marathon.

K-Tek Key to Sound Capture for Baker on Tandem Unit of "The Good Wife"
K-Tek Key to Sound Capture for Baker on Tandem Unit of "The Good Wife"One-hour dramas are notoriously high-pressure productions. There is simply too much to cover in the time allowed for each episode. That’s why most productions create the Tandem Unit. “We often work along side the main production unit, picking up additional footage,” explains "The Good Wife’s" Tandem Unit’s mixer and boom operator James Baker. “This show uses 90% boom mics, especially on the stage. And the Sennheiser MKH 50’s we use are very sensitive to handling noise. So quality suspension mounts and poles are needed--that’s why my K-Tek gear is crucial.”
