Audio Tip: Broadcast or Newsman's Loop

Posted on Oct 28, 2015. 0 comments

If you are getting some unwanted noise from the person you have laved up then you might want to try adding a broadcast or newsman's loop to your lav.

When your subject is moving around, vibrations from the movement can travel through the lavalier microphone and translate into unwanted noise in your audio. Pulling on the lav mic can also create the same problem or unwanted noise.

By using a broadcast, or newsman's, loop you are able to diffuse the vibrations before the sound can get to the lav mic. You can break up the vibrations even more by creating a loose second loop on your subject. These loops also help keep the microphone stationary when the lav mic is accidentally tugged or pulled on.
