DPA, in conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, will also be showing the recently launched d:fine™ In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone.
Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine™ In-Ear Microphone
is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine™ range
so popular around the world. This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included and great care has been taken to ensure that there is no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.
At IBC 2015, DPA will also show its Podium range, which includes the d:screet™ Miniature Podium Microphone
that provides an elegant, directional microphone based on DPA's renowned miniature microphones. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet™ Miniature Podium Microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that 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.
