Beijing, China (March 2, 2011)–Lectrosonics equipment was donated to the Beijing Film Academy at a ceremony earlier this year.
Coordinated through Beijing’s Dingrun Tong Tech Limited and Los Angeles, CA-based More Technologies, Inc., a variety of Lectrosonics wireless microphone products were presented to the Beijing Film Academy. The donated equipment included a Lectrosonics Venue receiver system stocked with four VRS receiver modules, MM400B water-resistant miniature beltpack transmitters, UM400 beltpack transmitters, UM400A beltpack transmitters, and two UCR411a compact receivers. All equipment employs Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless technology, which uses a proprietary algorithm to encode 24-bit digital audio information into an analog format that can be transmitted over an analog FM wireless link.
Founded in 1950, the Beijing Film Academy is at the heart of China’s burgeoning film industry and is currently the only specialized institution of its kind in China’s higher education system. Numerous graduates of the academy have won international acclaim for their cinematic efforts. In recognition of the academy’s achievements and to foster more opportunity for the students, there was a special, January 1st ceremony on campus where Lectrosonics equipment was donated to the academy’s sound recording department.
Dingrun Tong Tech Limited’s Jessie Zhou commented, “As an agency for Lectrosonics, we feel very honored to introduce these products to the teachers and students at the Beijing Film Academy. Lectrosonics has become Hollywood’s preferred brand because of the high-quality, good performance, and reasonable price of your products, and I am confident this equipment will serve as a solid foundation for future Lectrosonics users.”
More Technologies’ Randy Powell echoed Zhou’s enthusiasm: “Thank you, Lectrosonics, for your generosity in presenting China film students–and just as importantly, their instructors–the sound gear that will set their standards high. The opportunity to work with much of the same equipment that Hollywood’s top sound techs use will serve as tremendous motivation for everyone at the Beijing Film Academy Sound Recording Department.”
