The Sounds of Sports (At Home)

I’ve always liked sports, and in the last few years when I’ve spent quite a bit of time as an audio engineer, I’ve been noticing more and more just how much goes in to making things on TV and in movies sound good.

However, nothing could have prepared me for just how much audio equipment and microphones are embedded in and active during sporting events. This video gives great insight in to just how much work is done live during sporting events to make them sound great. It’s been getting clearer and clearer to me that you often get much more out of watching a sport on TV than you can from attending one live, and this stuff is a big part of why.
