Strictly Come Dancing relies on the CEDAR DNS 8 Live
14 April 2015
BLACKPOOL, UK: When the flagship Saturday night show 'Strictly Come Dancing' relocates from the BBC's Elstree Studios to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, all of the production infrastructure heads north, including the show's CEDAR DNS 8 Live dialogue noise suppressor.
Front Of House magazine spoke to BBC Studio's lead Sound Supervisor, Tony Revell, who told them, "It makes a huge difference to be able to place the person talking in the centre of the mix, and duck any others rather than having everyone swimming in open PA. Each presenter's and judge's mic has its own CEDAR channel and the cleaned audio is then fed to the mixers."
The eventual mix is then sent to the adjacent OB truck where vision mixing and VT routing takes place. "It's certainly a huge step forward for us in delivering a show like Strictly live to air from an OB", Revell concluded.
