DPA Microphones, in partnership with its Netherlands distributor Amptec, will show its high quality microphones aimed at the installation market at this year’s ISE exhibition in Amsterdam (stand 7-V240).
One of the most important things for a speaker is that the message gets to the audience as clearly and comprehensively as possible. DPA Microphones is renowned for developing and manufacturing neutral and accurate microphones for measurement and studio use among others. The microphones reproduce sound to the smallest detail even in the most difficult surroundings and DPA now offers a range of products that give AV installers and conference organisers the high quality sound they demand.
Podium and Floor Stand Microphones
DPA’s Podium Microphone range consist of the d:screetâ„¢ Miniature Podium Microphone that provides the installation market with an elegant, directional microphone based on DPA’s renowned miniature microphones. This is a unique podium solution based on a special interference tube technology that ensures an exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection. It has already proven to be the best choice for speech applications in some of the worst acoustic environments.
“We were contacted by an organization that had simultaneous interpreters refusing to use their existing microphones because the audio quality was so bad,” says DPA’s CEO Christian Poulsen. “Simultaneous interpreting is a hard job and if the audio is poor, it gets even tougher. We knew we had the right capsule technology to take their existing solution to a new level – we just had to develop the microphone solution for the purpose. When testing against three or four times more expensive competitive podium microphones, our shotgun solution was clearly better. We are proud to set the new standard of podium microphones securing high speech intelligibility.”
The miniature capsule is mounted on a delicate gooseneck and comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s ingenious adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.
DPA’s Podium range also includes the d:dicateâ„¢ Podium Microphones that incorporate modular capsules from DPA’s d:dicate Recording Microphones, which are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. By combining state-of-the-art capsules with modular active booms and floor stands, DPA customers can access the precise high quality microphone for their needs.
The company is also showing its d:factoâ„¢ Vocal Microphone, an exceptional hand-held vocal mic that offers true studio sound in live surroundings. Due to the modularity of the two ranges, the d:dicate capsules can easily be mounted on the d:facto handle or dedicated adapters, that permit it to be used on various professional wireless systems.
Body Worn Microphones
DPA will complete the ISE line-up with its full range of body worn microphones consisting of the d:screet Miniature Microphones mainly used as lavalier and the d:fineâ„¢ Headset Microphones, both internationally acclaimed for their superior sound quality and durability.
The d:screet Miniature Microphones will include the recently launched d:screet Omnidirectional Miniature Necklace Microphone – a cleverly designed mic that houses the legendary d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace that can be mounted by non-technical people repeatedly.
The d:fine Headset Microphones are unobtrusive microphones that are very popular with conference speakers and adjudicators who want to keep their hands free while they are presenting and talking. Offering impressive gain before feedback, these microphones are renowned for their audio accuracy and ability to deliver natural speech intelligibility and consistent audio performance at all SPLs. Available in both directional and omnidirectional options, in single or dual-ear designs, d:fine Headset Microphones are comfortable to wear and can be adjusted to accommodate any ear size and head shape.
