DPA Microphones clocks up its quarter century this year and is marking the milestone by issuing special editions of selected mics, backed up with a series of international events featuring leading users of the brand. The first limited edition kit features the d:facto 4018V vocal mic, while the Get Closer World Tour kicks off on 27 June with a line-up of Masters of Audio.
Dramatic changes in the allocation and availability of radio frequencies over the last 10 years have made broadcast production more problematic, particularly as most programmes today rely on wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems. In response to this leading radio mic manufacturers have developed new products that use what little spectrum is left for this sector more efficiently.
Radio system and location recorder developer Zaxcom recently added a new rack-mount receiver to its wireless digital recording range. The RX-12R was seen during last month’s NAB Show and is aimed at both studio and network uses.
Wireless microphone specialist Wisycom used the recent 2017 NAB Show to debut two wideband antennas, one designed for UHF operations, the other featuring an integral amplifier to boost RF signals.
Shure’s Axient Digital wireless microphone provides high-performance RF, exceptional audio quality, command and control, and hardware scalability.
Wireless microphone transmitters have been getting smaller over the last ten years and Zaxcom will be at the 2017 NAB Show with its latest miniaturised offering. The ZMT3 is based on the company’s ZHD (Zaxcom High Density) modulation technology, which enables at total of ten channels to operate in a single megahertz of spectrum.
