MICROPHONES FOR NEWS BROADCASTING

Watch just about any major news channel or local news program and you will see the in-studio journalists and reporters wearing bodyworn lavalier microphones.

This makes the voice more distinguishable and improves speech intelligibility. Professionals will appreciate the light weight and the excellent speech reproduction. Alternatively, the d:screet™ 4060 or d:screet™ 4071 Omnidirectional Microphones are great solutions that leave an even smaller footprint. The d:screet™ 4071 even boasts a built-in presence boost to compensate for chest placement.

BROADCASTING AT SPORTING EVENTS

Audio for sports broadcasting places extremely high demands on the microphones used. Not only do they have to sound good in a hectic environment but they also need to be quick to set up, easy to handle, robust in all types of weather conditions and unobtrusive. Those are tough demands, but DPA has microphone solutions that shine in this application.

“We were really delighted with the performance of all the DPA Microphones, but especially the Mobile Surround Microphone, which sounded fantastic. It was incredibly easy to rig and protect from bad weather and was significantly less expensive than other microphone systems. Thanks to the d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone, we achieved a rich, smooth and fully enveloping sound that was great in its coherence, channel separation and localization accuracy.”

– Huub Lelieveld, Senior Sound Supervisor for United Outside Broadcast and Studios (UEFA Europa League Final)
