  • 5. Audio (Chapter 10TFH)  With video, good sound is just as if not more important than video  Microphone: Equipment that turns sound into an electromagnetic signal  Sound waves:Vibrations that travel through air Crest: maximum air pressure - trough: release  Frequency: Number of cycles that the sound wave travels in one second  Pitch: high/low  Amplitude: Height of the wave  Decibel: How amplitude is measured
  • 6. Sound  Need to know what kind of speech, instrument, or situation that you’re capturing  Transducer:Transduction - converting sound  Two main kinds of mics: Dynamic/Condenser Dynamic: Durable, no battery Condenser: More sensitive/phantom power/battery  Ribbon: (sometimes called dynamic)
  • 7. Pick Up Patterns  Mics hear sound differently pp. 391  Omnidirectional, bidirectional, unidirectional (cardiod)  Omni – Picks up sound from every direction  Bi – Picks up sound from two opposite directions  Uni – Heart shaped-narrow range of sound 
  • 8. Types of Mics  Handheld: Good for run and gun, need to move the mic – a bit obtrusive. Condenser/or dynamic  Lavaliere: (Personal) Clip/lapel – condenser – good for sit down interviews – hands free  Shotgun: Long mics (look like a gun) – captures sound from a distance (1-15 feet). Usually condenser
  • 9. Sound Quality  VU/LED meters: Measures sound wave voltage  Peak 0dB = 100% (above that audio will distort)  Overmodulation: distortion  Recording clean sound Monitor with headphones Test record Patience
  • 10. Sound Quality  VU/LED meters: Measures sound wave voltage  Peak 0dB = 100% (above that audio will distort)  Overmodulation: distortion  Recording clean sound Monitor with headphones Test record Patience
