Red Bull Media House INNOVATION
Body Sound Microphone
The Piezo microphone records body sounds instead of acoustic sounds.
The Piezo 2.0 Mic prototype records vibrations and sounds
of materials, ignoring acoustics like wind or voices. It creates a one-of-a-kind sound information.
The mics were used at Red Bull Rampage on a bike frame, which revealed the pressure of jumps, the speed of the wheels and the ground conditions during the race.
These sounds create a highly emotional factor for any video footage!
The next prototype version will allow a live audio output, that the directors can immediately use in their broadcast.
