6 Different Microphone Positions Compared on Voice Video

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.
Matthew Weiss is a Grammy nominated and Spellemann Award winning audio engineer from Philadelphia. Matthew has mixed songs for Snoop, Sonny Digital, Gorilla Zoe, Uri Caine, Dizzee Rascal, Arrested Development, 9th Wonder, !llmind & more. Get in touch:

The Social Media Glossary: 226 Essential Definitions

The Social Media Glossary: 226 Essential Definitions
“… A glossary of common words you should know if you’re in the social media industry.
A lot can change in a year, especially in the world of social media. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the terms and slang used with the introduction of new technologies and platforms, so we decided it was time to update our Social Media Glossary. Like previous editions of the glossary, this is a living document that will continue to grow as we add more terms and expand our definitions. …”

Live streaming on Facebook

"… 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

“… [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. …”

“… Dear GEORGE
Thank you for participating in the Canadian Broadband Measurement Project.
Unfortunately, your unit has not reported any data since 10-Dec-16, and we are wondering if the unit is still connected.
To resolve the problem: Ensure your Whitebox is connected to your modem/router. Reboot the Whitebox by either switching the power off and on or briefly unplugging the device.
Please send us an email to […] and we will confirm if the problem is fixed.
We really do need your consistent support for the long term, so please switch your test box back on today. As part of the SamKnows panel, we give you access to your own data via an online reporting system, and also a monthly email report card to allow you to compare performance and communicate with your ISP.
Thank you for your support.
Kind regards,
SamKnows …”
“… Join our Canadian campaign… Sign up with us today to accurately measure your broadband performance
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and SamKnows have established the ‘Measuring Broadband Canada’ program in order to provide Canadian citizens with reliable and accurate data concerning broadband provision across the country.
Anyone who would like to be part of this project just needs to sign up. It might be worth reading the requirements before doing so just to make sure you’re eligible to join!
On signing up, volunteers will receive a purpose-built broadband measurement unit, also known as a SamKnows Whitebox. The Whitebox is easy to install; once it has been plugged into the existing modem / router then it is good to go. Volunteers will also be able to see their own data from their broadband connection using a purpose-built SamKnows dashboard.
Please note, not everyone who registers will necessarily receive a SamKnows Whitebox. We do want to thank everyone for signing up and for working together to make Canadian broadband better!…”

“…What is the Broadband Measurement Project?
In 2015, the CRTC launched a project to objectively measure broadband Internet performance, including actual connection speeds, in Canadian homes. It collaborated in this innovative project, a first for Canada, with major Canadian Internet service providers (ISPs) and SamKnows, a UK-based company that has built a global Internet measurement platform that spans five continents.
The data, collected from approximately 5,000 Canadian volunteers, from across the country, will inform the CRTC’s future broadband policy-making.
The data will also provide Canadians with a greater understanding of whether Internet services from participating ISPs are delivered at the advertised speeds and allow ISPs to improve their networks to better serve existing customers, and promote products to potential new customers.
The key output of the project is the annual report, developed and reviewed by all participants.
How is data collected for the Broadband Measurement Project?
A device known as a Whitebox is connected to a volunteer’s home modem or router and monitors the broadband performance when no one is using the Internet connection. This performance data is made available to the volunteer via a Web portal and is also available to the CRTC and the ISP providing the service. …”
