DPA Microphones Displays the Ultimate Podium Microphone at the 135th International AES Convention
Company builds on the renowned audio quality of its highly regarded microphones to design new solutions that are ideal for the installation market
As a high-end solution, DPA is offering podium microphones that incorporate the modular capsules from its d:dicate Recording Microphones, which are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. These new podium microphones combine the state-of-the-art d:dicate capsules with any of the company's newly introduced modular active booms and modular active cables. With several capsules to choose from, DPA customers can access the exact microphone and boom or cable combination to meet their needs.
"While DPA Microphones is internationally acclaimed for creating high quality live sound and recording microphones, we are excited to now turn our attention to the installation market with the launch of our flexible d:dicate range," says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. "Since we already had the high-end capsule and preamplifier technology needed to fulfil the audio component, creating a microphone for the installation and conference markets was an obvious step for us. We just needed to employ an ingenious mechanical solution that allowed us to adapt our boom and cable technology to deliver high-end installation solutions for a wide variety of applications."
Whether this is for a podium, desktop, stage stand or even a ceiling suspension, DPA Microphones' Podium Mics have it covered with visually elegant and sonically advanced products that feature all the robustness inherent in DPA's engineering techniques. In addition to the high-end d:dicate solution, DPA has also developed a cost-effective, directional podium microphone based on its renowned miniature microphones.
These directional gooseneck microphones, which use interference tubes and pre-polarized backplates to ensure speech intelligibility, were originally devised on request from the Nobel Prize organization. In search of a dedicated podium solution for its 2012 Nobel Peace Prize presentation at Oslo City Hall in Norway, the organization required a microphone that could stand up to the acoustical challenges of its auditorium. To fit the need, DPA Microphones adapted its existing miniature capsule to give an off-axis frequency response that negated room reverberation while preserving the needed on-axis sensitivity for voice level. The company also positioned the capsule on a delicate gooseneck stand. The result was so well received that the microphone was quickly adopted as a standard DPA product and is now available to all installation customers. This miniature podium microphone can also be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company's innovative adapter that is available for its range of miniature microphones.
