  • BAT204: Broadcast Audio Systems BOT204: Outside Broadcast Systems Session 1 (BAT), Session 6 (BOT): Talkback & Communications 28 October 2009 www.record-producer.com
  • Talkback & Communications  Good talkback & communications systems are vital to making a successful studio or OB-based TV programme  Consider a live multi-camera studio production  Working in pairs, list the different communications systems that may be used for this type of event 2
  • Talkback & Communications  Now consider a live multi-camera production from a European Cup rugby match at Twickenham  Working in pairs again, list the different communications systems that may be needed for this type of event  What are the differences between the two? 3
  • Talkback & Communications  Possible OB event communications systems:  Talkback  Walkie-Talkie  Mobile phone  Off-air microphone  Hand signals  Nodding camera  Runner  Any more? 4
  • Talkback & Communications  Write down a definition of talkback  There are several different types of talkback systems, both switched and open (unswitched)  Write down the differences & who uses switched talkback & who uses open talkback 5
  • Talkback & Communications  BBC definition of talkback  Switched Talkback: The director and production assistant in the studio gallery will often use switched talkback to communicate with the presenter(s). In this system a button at the side of the microphone is pushed and held down to activate the presenter's earpiece. The presenter then hears only the instructions that are specifically for them.  Open Talkback: Often talkback is "open", particularly for the director and production assistant in the production gallery. This means they have a microphone in front of them picking up everything they say and this can be heard continuously by other areas on the system. www.bbctraining.com 6
