When the BBC asked VDC Trading for 2000 Starquad tourgrade microphone leads for their outside broadcast facility being based in Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics, the team sprang into action, especially as they needed them ready to ship out in just four days.
The cables were all Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE starquad microphone cables in 1m, 3m, 5m and 10m lengths, all with different coloured boots for id purposes. Complete with XLR connectors, the leads were ready ship on time.
VDC Technical Director Nick Chmara said: “As always we were delighted to be able to be of service to the BBC. It’s nice to think a little of our product will be at the Olympics!”
Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE Starquad is specified for individual microphone level analogue audio signals in areas of high electronic interference. Ideal for outside broadcast microphones and any microphone used in areas that may be subject to EMI and RFI – for example in close proximity to lighting dimmer circuits and major power feeds. This cable combines electrical integrity with mechanical strength without compromising flexibility.
