The Major League Baseball All Star Game will have something new this year as Fox plans to expand the field audio coming from the players. This is made possible by a new type of microphone that can actually be buried on the field. The company plans on burying 13 of them on the infield, outfield and near the pitcher’s mound.
This new-look audio setup comes as a result of a unique microphone from a company called Q5X that specializes on player microphones, which have been used by MLB previously, as well as the NBA and NHL.
