SVG SportsTech On Demand: Quantum5X’s Paul Johnson on Preparing New Tools for On-Player Sound
While the 2021 NAB Show has been moved to October, the spring season will still feature a cavalcade of new product releases and groundbreaking news coming out of the broadcast technology sector. In an effort to keep the video-production community informed, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews throughout April, May, and June with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors.
Quantum5X, which pioneered placing microphones on athletes, reviewed how deeply embedded in televised sports that’s become, with viewers now expecting to be able to her their favorite MLB, NFL, NBA, MLS and PGA players speak. Q5X CEO Paul Johnson also looked at the launch earlier this year of the Q5X Axient Digital CoachMic for the NBA, and a look ahead at the forthcoming Shure Axient Digital ADX 5D portable receiver.
