An article by the Sports Video Group (SVG) on the production of the MLB All Star game features the addition of the KLOVER MiK parabolic microphone.
KLOVER MiK 26 Parabolic Mic Makes Debut at MLB All Star Game. It was soon discovered that the KLOVER MiK parabolic microphone was almost too good for the job.
SVG discusses how Fox Sports was improving audio coverage of the MLB All Star game, including KLOVER MiK 26 parabolic microphones.
The prototype for the parabolic microphone later to become the KLOVER MiK 26 was tested by Fox during the last weeks of the 2011 NFL season.
The Organized Crime Unit of the Las Vegas Police Dept. was not satisfied with the parabolic mic they had tested and were looking for better audio performance.
