Media

  • IFB - "Interruptable Fold Back". An audio device that is in the ear of the reporter/anchor/camera person, that usually contains program audio mixed, minus their microphone, that can be interrupted by production staff at the studio or in the control vehicle. It is used so talent can get cues and information about their live remote shot.
