… while watching the reports about the disasters in the US (no, not the president, hurricanes & tornados ;) ) one video-related thing caught my intention:

How do they manage wind-noises? Or, it's complete absence ???
as an example:
edition.cnn.com/videos/us/2017/09/10/hur...address-to-congress/

handheld mic, distance to mouth = there should be just 'blubblublub' to hear! And, voice isn't equalised-to-death to some super narrow 3-3.1kHz (=no 'telephone effect')

really impressive, way beyond what a dead-cat accomplishes …

… any insights?

I'm hearing plenty of wind noise but still, you're right... it's pretty good. They probably are using a highpass filter just below his vocal range but some of it still gets through. I would be curious as to exactly they get such good voice recordings in this situation.

However I'm still baffled why networks and even local stations feel that reporters need to be out IN the hurricane or whatever weather is happening. As a viewer I just end up thinking they're dumb. It doesn't enhance the accuracy of their reporting. I guess most viewers just like seeing chaos.

" I guess most viewers just like seeing chaos."

Thus the popularity of WWE and YouTube...

I also notice tons of water coming off the mic cover. Normal foam would soak all of that water in. There's something else going on here besides the mic. Almost as if he has a wireless lav on, but holding the hand-held for effect.

… they do interviews with the hand-helds too…

Has to be some ultra-smart noise-cancelling tech… what impresses me most: the useful signal = voice seems to be wide-banded but not 'covered' by the wind noises.... Maybe some reverse-Melodyne (that magic software which allows to tune single instruments in a done-stereo-mix) or somethin' …

Impressive!
Never seen/heard before.
