New 1600VP Remote Variable Pattern Mic Well Received At Infocomm

ast-1600vp-remote.jpgOrlando, FL––Introduced at InfoComm ’09, the new 1600VP continuously-variable pattern condenser hanging microphone system with remote polar control design (patent pending) and an anti-rotational positioning mount was enthusiastically received by convention attendees and the media at a special press conference.

For the first time, the 1600VP’s variable polar pattern with remote control allows the user to precisely adjust the shape of the pick-up pattern to provide the best gain before feedback from a remote location using the standard mic cable.

Designed to hang from a ceiling, the 1600VP is highly effective in the recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, instruments and ambient miking, in addition to government, institutional and business applications. A low-profile carbon fiber boom (MB-1) is available for microphone stand mounting.

The remote variable polar pattern control uses a two-conductor shielded cable (max length 2000 feet) between the microphone head and the pattern-control box (VPC-1), giving the installer or end user the ability to change polar patterns when installed, or from scene to scene without inducing noise into the audio chain. Adjustments to the pick-up pattern can be done ?on the fly“ without costly lifts, ladders and capsules.

Special attention has been given to the frequency response and sensitivity of the microphone while utilizing the variable-pattern control to precisely alter the shape of the pick-up pattern. The large-diameter, low-noise elements produce a frequency response of 40Hz to 20KHz with a selectable, recessed 80Hz, 12dB/octave high-pass filter that removes unwanted low-frequency energy when engaged. The filter control is conveniently located on the control box.

Up to six control boxes can be mounted in one rack unit. The polar-pattern dial is positioned for easy adjustment and can be secured with a single “flat style? blank panel when rack mounted.

Made in the USA, the 1600VP has been designed to resist interference from cell phones, two-way communication devices and lighting apparatus. Using Astatic’s RF Resistant Architecture, the 1600VP meets the stringent RF standards set by the European Union.
