Red Bull Air Race provides a double-victory for AKG
While Hannes Arch, co-architect of HARMAN’s AKG AV100 aviation headphones, was the winner of the Red Bull Air Race in Rovinj, Croatia, the moderator’s bench also featured its own extensive selection of HARMAN’s AKG wireless microphones, headsets and in-ear monitoring systems.
The AKG systems provided communication on and off the racecourse during the commencement and winner ceremonies.
The system at the Red Bull Air Race featured the AKG DAM+ Series gooseneck microphones, equipped with CK49 capsules for the desks, capturing the sound of live commentators and the winners of the contest. The announcers alsom made use of AKG WMS4500, DHT700 and DMS700 wireless microphones.
“Red Bull wanted to bring pristine audio performance and crystal-clear communication to this competition, which is why these AKG systems were perfect solutions for the Red Bull Air Race,” said Walter Rührig, artist & key customer relations, AKG. “In an outdoor environment like this, it is essential that we provided gear like the CK49 with windscreens, to reduce wind and pop noise during interviews and live announcements. The equipment performed perfectly without hiccups, which is a testament to AKG’s reliability.”
