Joe Biden and Paul Ryan go head to head with Audio-Technica

Last week’s US vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Republican nominee Paul Ryan was captured by a raft of equipment from Audio-Technica.

Products used at the debate, which took place at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky on October 11th, included Audio-Technica’s Engineered Sound ES935ML6 MicroLine condenser gooseneck microphones on vice president Joe Biden and Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan. Two AT898cW subminiature cardioid condenser lavalier microphones with 5000 Series wireless were used for moderator Martha Raddatz.

Meanwhile, Audio-Technica’s BP4071 Line + Gradient condenser microphones were used for room ambience. Backup mics at the event included AT898cW wireless lavaliers and AEW-T5400 handheld transmitters with 5000 Series wireless for the candidates, and AT898 wired lavalier mics for Raddatz.

Larry Estrin, of Best Audio in Studio City, CA, serves as Audio and Production Communications director for the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and has specified Audio-Technica microphones for such high profile events.
