U.S. rights holder Premiere Radio Networks contracted Wired For Sound to provide remote facilities from Wembley Stadium. Wired For Sound issued four reporters with HHB FlashMics to record interviews with artists appearing at the concert.
“The FlashMics made everything easy,” said Johnnie Dymock of Wired For Sound. “We set them all to AGC and locked everything down so all the interviewers had to do was push ‘record.’ [The reporters] were weighed down with wireless talkback systems and walkie-talkies, so they really appreciated the compactness and simplicity of the FlashMics.”
After recording the interviews, the reporters returned to the operations room, downloaded the interviews via USB, edited them and then transferred them via ISDN or FTP to the Premiere Radio Network studios in New York. Premiere Radio Network then syndicated the content to several hundred radio stations across the United States.
