Virgin Holidays Live Commercial

Over the last two days I have been involved with and interesting project, the first live commercial from 18 locations around the world.

There were 3 units in Dubai, one in the desert, one at Atlantis The Palm and I was in the unit out on a boat overlooking Dubai Marina.

I had a very simple setup, just my Pearl MSH10 M/S mic into Sound Devices 552 and out to the camera. The camera signal was sent to a LiveU satellite link unit which broadcast the HD signal to the gallery in London.

We spent a few hours out on the water each night which was fun, although a little hot and sticky, it's still mid 30c and high humidity at this time of year.

A simple sound job for me, but a nice project to be involved with.
