Audio-Technica provided several microphone products for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to New York.
The company also created special white-colored mics and accessories, “in order to be consistent with the color scheme and solemn tone of these events.”
Larry Estrin of Best Audio was director of communications for the papal visit for the Archdiocese of New York and coordinating technical director for media and broadcast.
He used several A-T mics at eight events over three days, including the AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Handheld, ES961 Cardioid Condenser Boundary Mic, ES933H Hypercardioid Condenser Hanging Microphone, ES915ML MicroLine Condenser Goosenecks, AT4040 Large-Diaphragm Side-Address Microphones, ES905 Hypercardioid Condenser Rigid-Pipe Mics and an A-T 5000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless System.
On-site support at Yankee Stadium was provided by A-T’s Steve Savanyu.
