Field mics, processors help French state broadcaster prepare for HD

French state TV channel France 3 has begun using SoundField SPS422B microphones and SP451 processors to provide surround-sound audio for HD sports broadcasting.

Currently, all of France's state broadcast transmissions are in SD, but the SoundField systems are now installed in several of France 3's OB vehicles, ready for the HD sports coverage, which the nation plans to offer soon.

In April, the first SPS422B/SP451 systems were installed in the OB vehicles owned by France 3's regional headquarters in Marseille and Lille. They provided 5.1 audio for HD transmissions of Roland Garros French Open Tennis, which was supplied to international broadcasters such as Orange and the Russian state broadcaster. A third SoundField SPS422/SP451 system has since been installed in the HD OB truck owned by France 3's regional headquarters in Rennes.
