Frequency Coordination
One of the most difficult parts of this show was working with three different types of microphones. To ensure that no cross frequencies occurred we used Shure Wireless Workbench to scan for available frequencies and program each microphone to a frequency band that had little to no traffic on it.

Microphone Tracking
For this production it was also imperative that we track exactly when the handheld was used instead of an actor's lavalier mic so that we could use the proper EQ.
