Nearly 50 years ago — 1969 to be exact — Sony introduced the ECM-50, a tiny peanut-sized electret condenser lavalier microphone that virtually ended the reign of large, cumbersome microphones used in television broadcasting. Since then, the scope, quality and price of lavalier microphones has dramatically expanded. Here’s a look at what’s available now.

Players grunting, managers barking out directions and referees making controversial calls are all part of the live viewing telecast of a Bundesliga match. Viewers now have the ability to hear these and other captivating sounds of a match more clearly than ever before, thanks to a new automated mixing system developed by the product engineers at Lawo. It’s an automated closeball-mixing concept that replaces a human mixer with special software that provides more consistent results and better accuracy in capturing the audio action.
