NILES, IL, February 5, 2009 – Shure Incorporated answers its top five most frequently asked questions in the February edition of ShureCast, the Company's educational podcast series. The show is the 18th episode in the series, which provides useful information about audio technology for professionals and consumers.
“Our podcasts have been very well-received,” said Mark Brunner, Shure's Senior Director of Public and Industry Relations. “Several thousand people are downloading each new episode and their popularity has continued to grow.”
Previous episodes include the history of the SM57 and SM58, Microphone Basics, Wireless Basics, Using Audio Effects, Sound Isolation vs. Noise Cancellation, and updates on the “White Spaces” and wireless spectrum availability.
Each episode begins with a simple, straightforward explanation of a particular aspect of audio technology, such as earphone design or microphone placement techniques. Audible examples are often included, so that listeners can hear differences for themselves.
“The wizards in our Applications Engineering group have been busy answering questions from customers for several years,” added Brunner. “In fact, the FAQ section on shure.com is one of the most visited sections of our website. We thought the time was right to offer some of that knowledge and expertise in a different medium, so we created this new ShureCast to answer the questions that people are most curious about.”
