Beam “Mike” for Outdoor Films (Oct, 1930)

Beam “Mike” for Outdoor Films

Revolutionary in its scope and perfected to the point where it is believed millions of dollars will be saved in the production of outdoor talking pictures, the beam microphone pictured at the left is being used for the first time in the filming of a railroad epic in Montana. The microphone will pick up sounds only from the point at which it is aimed, thus permitting directors to give oral instructions during filming.
