Production Sound Mixer Jonathan Wyatt has added four of the microphones to his soundcart so that he can cover all miking eventualities.
ITV’s long running detective series Midsomer Murders is among the first television shows in the UK to record dialogue using DPA’s new d:screet™ Slim Miniature Microphone, which was launched last year to huge critical acclaim.
Developed in response to demands from the film industry for an even smaller lavalier mic that could not to be seen, even if it was in shot, the super-tiny d:screet™ 4060 hi-sens and 4061 lo-sens Slim Microphones have a flat capsule, making them ideal for concealed applications. They also come with a unique new Button-hole Mount featuring a small side entry pipe that allows sound to enter the microphone’s diaphragm through the actor’s button hole. The microphone cable runs perpendicular to this pipe, making it easy to secure the Slim mic capsules behind clothing or to conceal them in the seam of a shirt.
