Augmented crowd sound gears up for new sports seasons , Sports Video Group
Can’t stop thinking about the amazing psychological effect the embedded crowd noise had on me...the opening day ballgame didn’t & it felt awkward & flat; when I cheered I almost felt embarrassed b/c no one else was. Folks @sonofans are delivering SO much more than just sound! ⚾️
🙏Brian! The genesis of our company was spurred by a desire to bring athletes game-like sonic environments for conditioning, so we have developed an immersive audio system to be deployed in stadiums. We do broadcasts for @FOXSports now, but ready for more when the world heals!
I just got done watching Nationals host the Yankees, and I was blown away by how realistic the crowd sounds were. It was so good that I thought, "Teams (and broadcast teams) with low attendance will be hiring sound people to do this, even after the pandemic."
Thank you so much! 🙏
The Crowd Noise guy for the @Nationals is phenomenal!
We agree! https://twitter.com/kbmesospud/status/1287212515366060033
Glad you dug it! and thank you for shouting out our fearless leader Fred Vogler!
@Todd711711 @Nationals Kudos to Fred Vogel doing the crowd noises. He did a great job.
Glad you dig it Karen! This was our first day at the controls for @MLB and it will only get better from here!
Crowd sounds on point tonight! And we were cheering so loud in our living room maybe you could here us at Nats Park! @Nationals @MLBONFOX @MLB #Nats #Nationals
Glad you dig it Christopher! 🙏🙏🙏We are working hard to make it as realistic as possible
The crowd noise Fox added in the Yankees-Nationals game was legit. I didn’t think I’d buy in but their production crew tonight was masterful.
@sonofans Wow, a well deserved socially distanced fist bump to everyone at Sonofans...and FRED! 👊<———6ft———->👊
That's our goal! It should be so good that we forget it's there, allowing everyone to focus on the game. So glad that our team leader Fred Vogler is getting the recognition he deserves!
Shout-out Fred Vogler if you didn't know it you'd think this was a stadium full of fans @MLBONFOX
