Chicago, IL (August 14, 2019)—Shure has launched the VPH, a long microphone handle, intended for use in on-camera interviews and reporting.
The mic sports Shure’s RPW interchangeable cartridge interface at the top and XLR connectivity at the other end, aiding connection to broadcast mixers and recorders.
The VPH accepts a variety of Shure wireless interchangeable capsules that offer different polar patterns and sonic characteristics to match situational needs. Polar patterns include cardioid, supercardioid, hypercardioid, and omnidirectional by way of PG58, SM58, SM86, SM87A, Beta58A, Beta 87C, VP68, KSM8 and KSM9 cartridge options. External phantom power is necessary to power the VPH.
Stuart Moots, associate director, pro, commented: “At Shure, we are continually responding to the needs of the market, and the new VPH long-handled microphone is a perfect example of this process in action. Our customers asked us to bring the flexibility of interchangeable wireless capsules into a wired microphone product, making it simple to switch between different polar patterns or from dynamic to condenser.
