Audio-Technica ATR 6550 Shotgun Video Mic Review  - Audio-Technica ATR 6550 Shotgun Video Mic Review
Mon Jul 19, 2010 | 4:02P| PermaLink
Video making has come a long way from your good ol' family videos of drunken uncle Bobs speech and your sister's wedding. Professional or rather pro-sumer grade equipment is becoming readily available for a much broader audience than it ever was before. This drop in the price of quality equipment has made it possible for people with talent and little budget to create things that were in the past out of their reach. One thing that I have personally appreciated about new budget cameras is adding something as simple as an audio input took the quality of a basic video up a serious notch by being able to use a more professional quality shotgun mic to get the sound quality needed for a much less amateur approach to filmmaking. Audio-Technica is one such Company to jump on this band wagon with the Audio-Technica ATR 6550 Shotgun Video Mic. Let's take a look at it:

The range is designed for the latest Socket of Intel and AMD processors. IGLOO CPU cooling solutions not only allow heat to be dissipated at a faster rate, but also decrease the vibration buildup around fan blades to minimize noise output. GlacialTech will also showcase the F101 range of coolers, which are aligned for the gaming and enthusiast platforms. The extreme levels of performance and innovative design combine into something out of this world. The company will also showcase its newly launched X-Wing series cooling pads.

Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
GlacialPower, a subdivision of GlacialTech Inc., will present the world's first switching power supply units(PSU) to support the 80 Plus silver standard certificate.
