Stickman Goes LIVE ...
The New Year started off with a bang here at Stickman! CES rolled through Vegas like a tidal wave sweeping up most of our gear and mixers.This year we had a client request 100 IFB's for a walking tour through the convention. Yes, you read that correctly, 100 IFB units. Our warehouse put on their Super Audio Capes and went to work as this was a "no room for error" situation. Marcus and his team did it! We posted a bunch of pictures on social media and the constant question was "how many did you get back?". We are proud to say we had a 99% return rate. I'm not sure what the betting pool was, but I lost (I was all in for 100% return!) and I think I owe someone a beer.
Most of you know we have been playing with the Live Facebook thing and it's been so much fun! We love to share our knowledge and always look forward to the feedback. If you, or someone you know, has any questions about gear, programs, microphones, life, the universe, and everything, let us know. We are on the lookout for new things to post. Please remember to be kind to whoever draws the short straw and has to hold the camera. There's a reason we are Stickman Sound and not Stickman "Shaky Hands" Camera.

"Wireless IFB (interruptible fold back) systems are used for talent cueing and crew communications in broadcast and motion picture production. In other cases, the IFB system is used by directors and other management to monitor program audio during a production. The IFB R1a receiver provides simplicity and flexibility in a package that is intuitive for untrained users to operate." Lectrosonics, 2017
