ALLEROED, DENMARK�DPA Microphones highlights its d:factor Interview Microphone, suitable for on-camera work; it may also find a home in straight audio applications.
Featuring an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, the mic�s sensitivity has been adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate the sensitivities that come with interview mics and wireless handles.
The omnidirectional pattern is preferred for a handheld in typical interview environments, it notes. �Further, wind and handling noise is lowered by a rubber suspension mount built into the d:facto head.�
�Traditional broadcast interview microphones are typically wired or wireless, not both. The d:facto has the unique capability of using the same mic head in either application. This future-proofs the user�s investment in the microphone�s front-end technology as it adapts to professional wireless brands and new wireless standards.� It promotes the model for its voice clarity, linearity, low noise, and wind- and handling-noise rejection.
The Danish company also makes the d:fine In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone. When paired, it said, these two microphones can be used simultaneously by a show host for guest interviews and audience commentary, while staying in contact with backstage crew or off-site producers.
