IBC: DPA To Share Newest Mic Solutions
DPA Microphones will be showcasing its latest microphone offerings, designed to meet the growing needs of the entertainment and media markets, at IBC 2022 (RAI, Amsterdam, Sept. 9-12, stand 8.F87). Focusing on the needs of film and TV productions, DPA is highlighting its 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone, which can also serve as a boom mic for broadcast applications.
Two mic solutions ideal for televised live event productions, the 4466 CORE omnidirectional and 4488 CORE directional headset microphones and the 4055 kick drum mic, will also be featured on the show floor
Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s other supercardioid microphones, the 4097 CORE micro shotgun microphone has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance. Initially designed for plant miking applications, it is ideal for small spaces because of its compact footprint and clear audio pickup. The sonic qualities of the 4097 CORE micro shotgun are particularly beneficial for placing mics in inconspicuous locations as it enables location sound experts to capture sound from anywhere on set. Used in combination with DPA boom mics and lavaliers, the 4097 CORE micro shotgun becomes the final piece of a complete microphone package to meet the needs of any TV or film production.
The DPA 4466 CORE omnidirectional and 4488 CORE directional headset microphones feature the brand’s 5mm round microphone capsule. With a one-size-fits-all design and adjustable boom height and length, the 4466 and 4488 CORE headsets accommodate all head shapes and sizes. A three-point gripping system ensures a greater level of security, while the flexible ear hooks provide continued comfort during extended use. In addition, the interchangeable cable and boom options include a 90-degree cable management guide at the neck. The headset frame, boom and capsule are available in black, brown and beige options and feature a non-reflective surface for unobtrusiveness and ease-of-use for camera crews.
A specialized mic for the low-frequency, high-SPL instrument, the DPA 4055 kick drum microphone differs from traditional kick drum mics in that it is not pre-tailored to any specific sound, allowing sound engineers to shape the sound exactly as desired.
Able to perform in a variety of genres, the mic is perfect for televised live musical events and talent show-style productions that feature a live band. Featuring the renowned DPA sound, this mic picks up the true, clear sound of the instrument, which is ideal for broadcast and streaming applications. It also offers a linear frequency response, both on- and off-axis, which results in a very tight, natural, well-defined sound.
