      The 4097 CORE Interview Kit makes it easy to deliver great sound in challenging situations. It contains a 4097 CORE Shotgun Microphone, which shines in outdoor locations, handling inclement weather and limiting intrusive background noises. It’s a professional solution for professional broadcasters, who need amazing sound in a lightweight, small-footprint form factor.


      Free-standing solution
      Mount the microphone on a tripod via the cold shoe mount and use it as a stationary interview mic on a table.

      A flexible and light solution

      For a team doing on-location interviews, especially outdoors, it is important to have professional tools that make the entire process easy and flexible enough for any situation.

      When you’re doing distance interviewing inside or out, the 4097 CORE Interview Kit gets you up and running quickly and easily. No extra equipment. No complicated setup. No workflow changes. A lighter, more flexible solution lightens your bag and eases your work.

      Interview at (more than) arm’s length using the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic attached to an extremely lightweight telescope boom. It doesn’t get any easier or lighter (330 g (11.6 oz) without transmitter). The solution collapses down to only about 40 cm (16 in) and extends all the way to 140 cm (55 in)

      The 4097 CORE Interview Kit includes:
      • 1 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone (4097-DC-G-B00-010)

      Clip your existing transmitter into the holder at the bottom of the pole, connect it via a wireless DPA adapter (not included) and you are ready to go. For larger transmitters or extra security, a Velcro strap is included.
