Scott Wilkinson went back stage at the Oscars this week to interview the audio guys for the Academy Awards. He said that the security was incredibly tight, but the technology being used to mix the audio for the show is incredible. The audio goes from the Dolby Theater to Capitol Records for remixing and back to the theater for the broadcast in 2.7 milliseconds! Since all the Oscar nominated songs are being performed live, it's even more impressive.
Scott says 1.2 Billion people will be watching the Oscars all around the world, making it one of the most watched television events. But Leo says that the World Cup is probably bigger.
