Essential Guide on How to Mic Talent for Video


In the following video, Rob Rives, from B&H, demonstrates how to mike talent using lavalier microphones. Rives explores the reasons for using a lavalier over a boom microphone, the actual placement of the lavalier, and how to deal with issues of clothing noise. We also showcase alternate locations for mounting lavaliers, and provide some solutions for frequency attenuation that occurs when lavaliers are hidden, as opposed to being exposed. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at
