Sennheiser MKH 8060, MKH 8070 Digital Microphones Capture Sounds and Excitement of 2011 US Open of Surfing
Huntington Beach, California, September 9, 2011 – At this year’s US Open of Surfing, a nine-day broadcast event in which the top surfers in the world compete for a $100,000 top prize, digital Sennheiser MKH microphones were on hand to capture every sonic detail of the excitement – which also included a BMX riding and skating competition.
The annual US Open of Surfing is attended by over 500,000 people and held on a beach that stretches over 300 yards. For this year’s broadcast, Hollywood-based Coffey Sound deployed Sennheiser’s latest MKH shotgun microphones: the MKH 8060 and MKH 8070, equipped with MZD 8000 digital output modules. The digital microphones not only provided improved clarity and detail of the audio, but also provided an important element of weather resistance required to take on a cruel outdoor environment fraught with wind, moisture and salty air. more
