Olympus Press Release
Olympus Launches Battle of the Bands Competition with Alex James’ Harvest Music and Food Festival
Winner to Play on the Main Stage at the Festival
10 August 2011 - To celebrate the launch of the LS-20; a new device that delivers recording studio sound quality with HD movie capture, Olympus is launching a battle of the bands competition in collaboration with Harvest.
To enter, bands or artists simply need to upload a video or track of them performing via Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/alexjamespresentsharvestbandcompetition by the 26 August and the Facebook community will decide the top ten bands by ‘liking’ their favourite video. The winning band will then be chosen by a panel of judges and will play at the festival on the main stage on Sunday 11 September. The winning band will also receive VIP tickets, an Olympus LS-20 allowing them to record their performances in HD sound and video as well as a two hour session in a recording studio with Relentless Records. The two runner up bands will receive VIP tickets to the festival and an LS-20.
Stylish and compact, the Olympus LS-20 lets you create unique and inspiring films thanks to a range of Movie effects, including Pop Art, Pin Hole, Punk and Sketch. It also features dual LCD technology allowing you to keep an eye on your audio and visual recordings for a professional style finish – ideal for musicians and bands to create high quality demo recordings and videos.
Movies are filmed from the top of the recorder allowing you to capture a range of angles; you can also flip the device to shoot overhead or in crowded environments and the left and right channel of the built-in stereo microphones are automatically reversed, allowing you to easily view your recording on the LCD screen.
Sharing your creations is simple as the LS-20 supports the 1080p, 30fps format suitable for uploading your films to the Internet. You can also connect your recorder to your PC to use it as a webcam and share live band rehearsals. The line in socket also doubles as the microphone socket so external equipment, for example a mixing desk can be connected.
