At IBC, DPA will also highlight the sonic consistency between its d:screet™
Lavalier and d:dicate™
Shotgun Microphone solutions, a feature that makes these microphones ideally suited to the fast-paced film and television productions of today. Whether they are on set or on location, sound crews need to deliver consistent sound so that post production engineers can easily switch between audio tracks in the mixing studio. This is particularly relevant in situations where an actor may move too swiftly past a boom or where a wardrobe malfunction causes a lavalier to slip. For those who rely on a combination of DPA d:screet™ and d:dicate™ solutions, there is no consistency issue because the sound from both microphones is almost identical. Furthermore, both solutions, including the popular 4017B and 4018G Shotgun microphones, can be unobtrusively connected to a wireless system via a DPA connector.
Another new DPA product on show for the first time in Europe is the 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphone, which is for house of worship and choir applications. Providing the same sonic qualities as the brand’s d:vote™
CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone, this microphone was specifically designed to capture dynamic choir sound, with both wireless or wired configurations.
The new 4097 Choir Mic also features DPA’s famous flat off-axis supercardioid pattern and, like all DPA microphones, has been designed to be one of the most natural-sounding solutions available. Thanks to its very high-gain-before-feedback and off-axis characteristic, the 4097 makes the entire choir sound natural, from all angles. Sound engineers wishing to use multiple mics on the choir can now easily mix the various parts of a choir and blend them together without having to fight the artifacts created from uneven mic pick-up patterns.
DPA will be showing all of these microphone solutions – and more – on booth 8.D70
, in conjunction with its Benelux distributor AMPTEC. Listening stations will be available so that visitors can hear the microphones for themselves.
