What Part of Spectrum is Right for Your Application?

Shure UK walk you through the most common portions of spectrum to explain which is best for your application.

ReadAudio File

Phil WardThis month: Bubble and Speak

"Focusrite, in common with every premium brand, should be comfortably profiting from its successes, not squeezing its resources for every millilitre of advantage."

ReadThe Conductor

The ConductorThis month: The great cable debate

"The 'flexible armoured' cable often used outdoors is actually anything but. The 'armour' is not there so much for mechanical protection, but more for interference suppression - much like the screen on an audio or DMX cable."

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Lucy Ockenden

"I studied biochemistry at University but ended up on the first UK tour of Starlight Express by chance. I then freelanced and toured with Matthew Bourne before a nasty accident put an end to my lighting career. I decided to produce a show and fell in to video at around the same time. I've come a long way from counting fruit flies!"

ReadSecond Fix

Second FixThis month: Let the people decide

"The logic was clear: if they are involved with the choice it will make them feel more involved with the decisions about the venue - and furthermore, they would not be in a position to complain about it later as it would be their fault."

ReadVideo Matters

Richard CadenaThis month: Broadway Motion Design Animates Production

"BMD is a great solution for amateur theatre productions or educational theatre where time and resources are limited, and the shortage of projection designers can be quickly and easily overcome with a phone call or a quick visit to the website."


QandAThis month: Lee Baldock talks to set designer Ala Lloyd, of Lloyd Live Design. . .

"I was impressed by how he presented himself, and the fact that the most interesting thing for him was how to solve the problems - it wasn't about working with pop stars."
