DPA Shares Its Latest Microphone Offerings At IBC 2022

Focusing on the needs of film and TV productions, DPA is highlighting its 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone, which can also serve as a boom mic for broadcast applications. Two important mic solutions ideal for televised live event productions, the 4466 CORE Omnidirectional and 4488 CORE Directional Headset Microphones and the 4055 Kick Drum Mic, will also be featured on the show floor.

Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s other super cardioid microphones, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance. Initially designed for plant miking applications, it is ideal for small spaces because of its compact footprint and clear audio pickup. The sonic qualities of the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun are particularly beneficial for placing mics in inconspicuous locations as it enables location sound experts to capture sound from anywhere on set. Used in combination with DPA boom mics and lavaliers, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun becomes the final piece of a complete microphone package to meet the needs of any TV or film production.

When selected as part of the company’s new 4097 CORE Interview Kit, which includes a lightweight boom and windjammer, the mic enables interviews to be conducted from up to two meters away, making it the perfect tool for single-reporter interview applications. Additionally, used in conjunction with DPA’s lightweight MMA-A Digital Audio Interface, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun becomes a complete remote recording package.

The DPA 4466 CORE Omnidirectional and 4488 CORE Directional Headset Microphones feature the brand’s popular 5mm round microphone capsule and provide the security, durability and flexibility necessary for use in entertainment. With a one-size-fits-all design and adjustable boom height and length, the 4466 and 4488 CORE headsets accommodate all head shapes and sizes. A unique, three-point gripping system (above, below and behind the ear) ensures a greater level of security, while the flexible ear hooks provide continued comfort during extended use. In addition, the interchangeable cable and boom options include a 90-degree cable management guide at the neck. The headset frame, boom and capsule are available in black, brown and beige options and feature a non-reflective surface for unobtrusiveness and ease-of-use for camera crews.
