Recently, we received a note from Dennis Waterman concerning the sound quality for Brewers TV. Since it seems like a common problem in some markets, I decided to post FS Wisconsin’s response to Dennis’ question below:
I have sent this to various places a couple of times, but nothing happens. Hopefully you can address it. AGAIN today the CROWD MIC is MUCH LOUDER than the announcers. We can barely hear Bill and Brian over the crowd noise.
Thanks for your note. This is not the way we produce the telecast or how we send the show to fans. The problem is something typically found when the cable company in a given area accidently mixes together two different audio channels — one intended for viewers and the second that local stations use to run highlights without hearing our announcers.
The second channel of sound, called “natural sound,” is accidentally overlapped by the cable operator. We’ve been in touch with the cable provider in your area with how they can correct this problem.
Thanks for letting us know and for watching Brewers baseball.
