DPA Microphones Makes Conference Audio Quality Its Main Focus For ISE 2016
Conference organisers and AV installers can look forward to meeting DPA Microphones staff who will highlight the importance of using high quality microphones in meeting rooms, lecture theatres and conference halls.
On show at DPA's ISE 2016 stand 7-T235 will be a range of microphone solutions ideally suited to the conference and AV install markets including elegant microphones for hanging, podium, table or floor stands, versatile bodyworn microphones and barely visible miniature microphones – all delivering DPA's internationally acclaimed audio and build quality.
"In any conference, lecture or meeting situation, ensuring that speakers can be clearly heard and understood is vital for the success of an event," says Anne Berggrein, DPA's VP of marketing. "The microphone is the first link in the audio chain, so it makes perfect sense to introduce the highest possible quality at that point. DPA is renowned for developing and manufacturing neutral and accurate microphones that can reproduce sound to the smallest detail, even in the most difficult surroundings. We have a range of useful solutions that give conference and AV installers the high quality sound they demand."
One of the biggest issues faced when using lectern mics is the speaker drifting off-axis. DPA's solution to this problem is the d:screet SC4098 Podium Microphone, an elegant microphone that features a directional (supercardioid) polar pattern with the extreme clarity and performance that has long been associated with DPA's miniature capsules.
Completely linear, it is designed to deliver a more natural sounding off-axis response. The d:screet SC4098 capsule ensures that speakers are always clearly heard, while still attenuating ambient noise. The miniature capsule is mounted on a delicate gooseneck and comes in several lengths for hanging, table or podium mounting or on floor stands. It comes with an XLR for a wired solution but also as a MicroDot version that can be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s ingenious adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones. This microphone was originally developed for simultaneous interpreting where audio quality is paramount. It is now proving to be the best choice for a wide range of speech applications, especially in difficult acoustic environments.
DPA's range also includes the d:dicate podium microphones that incorporate modular capsules from DPA's d:dicate recording microphones, which are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. By combining state-of-the-art capsules with modular active booms and floor stands, DPA customers can access the precise high quality microphone for their needs. DPA will be showing these microphones in a range of configurations, including floor standing and hanging from the ceiling, to suit different acoustic environments and demands.
The company is also showing its elegant d:screet BLM4060 boundary layer microphone, which is ideal for use in boardrooms and conference facilities. It is also a great solution for teleconferencing and other applications where excellent vocal pickup is required. This versatile microphone consists of a central rubber disc that holds the mic element mounted in an elegant stainless steel base. It is designed for tabletop use and provides exceptional clarity and speech intelligibility, especially at high frequencies.
DPA's full range of bodyworn microphones will be on show at ISE 2016. These include d:screet miniature microphones that are available as a traditional lavalier or as a necklace. This cleverly designed mic houses the legendary d:screet 4061 omnidirectional miniature capsule in a soft rubber necklace that can be easily and repeatedly mounted by non-technical people.
Also on show will be the company's full range of d:fine headset microphones that are internationally acclaimed for their superior sound quality and durability. These unobtrusive microphones that are very popular with conference speakers and adjudicators who want to keep their hands free while they are presenting and talking. Offering impressive gain before feedback, these microphones are renowned for their audio accuracy and ability to deliver natural speech intelligibility and consistent audio performance at all SPLs. Available in both directional and omnidirectional options, in single or dual-ear designs, d:fine headset microphones are comfortable to wear and can be adjusted to accommodate any ear size and head shape.
DPA will complete its ISE 2016 line up with the award winning d:facto vocal microphone, an exceptional hand-held vocal mic that offers true studio sound in live surroundings. Due to its modularity, it is easy to change the capsule or switch from the wired d:facto handle to the dedicated adapters that allow it to be used on various professional wireless systems to maintain the true and transparent sound of the performers.
