6 Different Microphone Positions Compared on Voice [Video]
I wanted to share a new video we just uploaded where Matthew Weiss compares the different sounds of various microphone positions.
Lots of shootouts already exist comparing different microphone choices, and those are certainly valuable, but you rarely see comparisons and analysis on the subtleties of different microphone positions.

"… Live streaming on Facebook also allows the audience to comment and send questions to the media in real-time, which creates an instantaneous interaction not possible with television.
For this special report, the Knight Center talked to several editors from Spanish-language media in various countries, and with a representative of Facebook. We selected ten cases of Facebook Live broadcasts by these media (see the bottom of this article) to reflect on the experiences of those media organizations with this new tool and the lessons learned.
“The volume of comments is 10 times greater in a live video compared with a normal video on Facebook. As for playing time, people are watching live content three times longer than they spend watching recorded material. It is an incredible tool. When you combine interactivity and real-time, it’s an incomparable force,” said Luis Renato Olivalves, director of media relations for Facebook in Latin America, in an interview with the Knight Center.
Univision is one of the television networks that joined Facebook Live to cover journalistic needs not suited for television. Breaking news, for example, is one of the areas where Facebook Live has been beneficial to the Spanish-language broadcaster…."

“… [Canadian] police can’t stop you from filming them, nor seize your phone, lawyer says – Public ‘absolutely allowed’ to film arrests, so long as they don’t obstruct police – By John Rieti, CBC News Posted: Jan 25, 2017– The man who captured video of Toronto police officers using a stun gun on a pinned suspect “absolutely” had the right to record that footage, a criminal lawyer says.
Police are reviewing officers’ use of force and conduct in connection with the Tuesday morning altercation in downtown Toronto, which Waseem Khan shot on his mobile phone and shared with the media.
Khan has since criticized police officers for threatening to seize his phone and warning him to stay back, telling him the suspect — who had been Tasered twice and was being held on the ground by multiple officers — was going to spit in his face and give him AIDS.
Criminal lawyer Daniel Brown said he believes officers were trying to intimidate Khan, who had a legal right to record what was happening.
Brown said the officers’ actions toward Khan are “just plain wrong.”
“You are absolutely allowed to film police interactions with the public. It is part of our civic duties and responsibilities,” he told CBC Toronto, adding that more people should know their rights.
Brown also said the officers couldn’t have seized Khan’s phone, even if it contained important evidence. As with a store’s surveillance camera, he said, police can’t just take the device — they have to seek permission to collect the evidence. …”
