Comedians in Cars Getting Wired

Suppose you have a certain high profile talent who has a kooky idea for a show. He wants to take classic cars, pick ­up other high profile talent, drive them around the city (stopping at various locations), treat them to coffee, and drive them back home – all while seamlessly recording their entire conversation, without having a sound person present in the car as it zips around New York.

What would you do?

This is exactly the scenario presented to Gotham when director Jojo Pennebaker called us in 2012 about Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. The stipulations were that it had to be seamless, it had to be unobtrusive, and there had to be total coverage – with no retakes. Lucky for us, Zaxcom wireless provide a unique feature set that allowed us to accomplish exactly this.

Marty Kelly specced a system that would allow for the above reliably, and with minimal fuss. Stationed in a follow­car with a Sound Devices 744t, Marty used Zaxcom TRX900 transmitters for the talent lavs – ensuring that even if the follow-­car were to get separated from the main talent, the on­board recording function of the Zaxcom transmitters would ensure that recording continued undisturbed. Another sound mixer, with another Sound Devices 744t and redundant RX900 receivers was stationed at the final destination – again, ensuring that should the follow-­car become separated, a reliable and faultless recording solution could proceed as planned when talent arrived at the new location. In this way, thanks to the on­board recording feature of the Zaxcom TRX900 wireless, we were able to provide our client with the solution they were looking for.

So the next time you're presented with an audio problem that seems impossible, be sure to call Gotham! We have the gear and the expertise to cater a unique solution to any recording challenge.

No matter how daunting the task may seem, we've got you covered.

Four New Products from Zaxcom That Will Make You Think Less About Your Wireless

​With Zaxcom's brand-new line of products, you get better bandsplit and range for your wireless. It's all fully compatible with the current line of Zaxcom devices and will be available soon! We'll keep you posted, but for now, here's what we know:

1. The TRXLA2 Tx covers four blocks with a single transmitter.

The LA2 is a talent transmitter with user selectable power output of 25, 50 or 125mW that covers four blocks with a single transmitter. Based on the best-selling TRX900LA, but totally redesigned on the inside with a brand new proprietary digital modulation digital modulation for increased transmission distance. More details about the TRXLA2 here.

2. So does the TRXLT2.

Like what you heard about the LA2 but want it in a smaller package? The LT2 is an ultra small size transmitter with much the same capabilities and adjustable power output of 10, 25 or 50mW. More details about the TRXLT2 here.

3. The QRX200 Rx is a 200 MHz wide ENG receiver.

The QRX200 Rx has a tunable tracking front end filter so you can receive on any frequency in any block from 20 through 27 (512 - 698 MHz) at a significantly enhanced distance. More details about the QRX200 here.

4. The QRX235 Rx features all new digital modulation and a QIFB option.

The digital modulation gives the QRX235 significantly enhanced distance and range and the QIFB upgrade adds the ability to read time code wirelessly, all while it receives up to 4 channels of 100% digital audio from up to 2 transmitters. More details about the QRX235 here.

There! Now that you think less about wireless, you have more time to celebrate the endless series of small triumphs that make up your day!
