DPA Microphones Launches The Ultimate In Podium Microphones

Internationally acclaimed for creating high quality live sound and recording microphones, DPA Microphones has now turned its attention to the installation market with the launch of two new microphones that give AV installers and conference organisers the clear, transparent and precise sound they demand.

At the top end of the range DPA is offering podium microphones that incorporate the modular capsules from the d:dicate™ Recording Microphones (formerly known as Reference Standard), 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 capsules with newly introduced modular active booms to complete their modular nature. A number of different capsules are available and by choosing the exact capsule and boom combination, DPA customers can access the exact microphone for their needs.

Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones, says: “Given the flexibility of our d:dicate range, creating a microphone for the installation and conference markets was an obvious step. We already had the high-end capsule and pre-amplifier technology needed to fulfil the brief, so all we had to do was employ some ingenious mechanical solutions. By doing this, we have been able to adapt our boom and cable technology so that we can deliver high-end installation solutions for a wide variety of applications. Whether this is for a podium, a desk top, a stage stand or even suspended from the ceiling, we have it covered with visually elegant and sonically superior products that boast all the robustness inherent in DPA’s ingenious engineering techniques.”

Alongside the high-end d:dicate solution, DPA has also developed a cost-effective, directional podium microphone based on its renowned 4060/d:vote 4099 miniature microphones.

This directional gooseneck microphone, which uses interference tubes and pre-polarized backplate to ensure speech intelligibility, was originally devised for the Nobel Prize organisation. The organisation had requested a dedicated podium solution for its 2012 Nobel Peace Prize presentation, which was taking place in Oslo City Hall, in a room with challenging acoustics. DPA 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. It also positioned the capsule on a delicate gooseneck stand, which encompasses all that is best in sleek Scandinavian design. 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 even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s ingenious adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

Both of these ingenious solutions for the installation market will be available from August 2013. For further information please visit www.dpamicophones.com
