  • Audio engineers are the unsung heroes of the live sports broadcast.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOWe don’t often think about audio when we watch sports on TV, but it’s a huge part of the experience. We spoke with several A1 audio engineers who mix the sounds of sports to learn more about what it takes to capture the crack of the bat and the swish of the net.From the cadence of the quarterback to the sounds of skates on ice, audio mixers are tasked with getting microphones close enough to the action to gather the sounds but still out of the way of the players and the fans.Once the microphones are set up, they handle the stressful task of live mixing all the audio for the broadcast, so that we can hear the announcers and the sounds of the game, despite thousands of screaming fans and the PA system blaring music.In the end, if they do the job right, you’ll forget they exist.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Big thanks to the Verge for letting us use footage from a great documentary they made years ago about NFL broadcasts. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/2HYSXFN And thanks to Phil Edwards for inspiring this video with a piece he wrote for Vox.com: http://bit.ly/2I2iVs8. If you’re interested in this topic, take some time to listen to this really lovely radio documentary made by an audio engineer who works on the Olympics: http://bit.ly/2jhyzlp -joss

    One of those jobs where people notice only if you make a mistake. Hats off to them working so hard.

    Audio, the least appreciated department in games, movies and tv as by nature Sound is only noticeable when its done bad.

    I thought the title meant like, better in the living room than other parts of the house! I was like "what's special about a living room??" 😵

    As someone who's mixed live sound, I pay careful attention to the sound of televised sports, but I didn't realize how many microphones were involved. Those engineers are the real stars in my book!

    Another advantage that the living room has and will never be beaten by going to the actual games: you're always closer to the bathroom.

    also there's announcers for commentary compared to live games in person.
