DPA Microphones Offers A Range Of Broadcast Microphone Solutions At IBC 2012

DPA Microphones is highlighting its international reputation for distortion-free sound and ergonomic design at IBC 2012 (Hall 8, Stand D70) by showing a range of high-quality microphones that are ideally suited to broadcast applications.
Among the products on show will be DPA’s expanded d:fine™ series of headset microphones, which recently won Live Design’s Sound Product of the Year Award, and the new d:facto™ vocal mic that made its debut earlier this year at Prolight + Sound.
“With so many television programmes now being delivered in High Definition and 5.1 surround sound, demand for high quality microphones for broadcast use has never been greater,” says Christian Poulsen, DPA’s CEO. “DPA is internationally acclaimed for delivering the pristine sound quality that programme makers and viewers want. Our range includes microphones for a wide variety of broadcast applications and we are confident that, both in terms of sound quality and design, they are the best broadcast microphones on the market today.”
Offering impressive gain before feedback and very stable construction, DPA’s unobtrusive d:fine headset microphones are easy to fit and provide presenters and guests with a discreet microphone solution that can’t be seen on the face. The d:fine range is renowned for its audio accuracy and its ability to deliver natural voice intelligibility and consistent audio performance at all SPLs. d:fine capsules are so small that they are virtually invisible, leaving presenters free to focus on their performance, safe in the knowledge that these hand-built microphones will deliver high-quality, distortion-free sound.
d:fine is available in both directional and omnidirectional options, in single or dual-ear designs and with long or short booms. Designed to fit comfortably, they adjust to accommodate any ear size and head shape and can be mounted on either the left or right side of the head. Available in black, beige, brown, and lime green, each solution performs spectacularly in either cabled or wireless settings and can accommodate a range of accessories including windscreens, power supplies, and adapters or cables with fixed connectors (MicroDot, 3-pin Lemo, TA4F mini XLR, Mini-jack).
DPA Microphones d:facto™ hand-held vocal mic bridges the gap between live stage performances and studio recordings. Offering an exceptionally natural sound, high separation from nearby sound sources and extreme sound level handling, this microphone is ideal for live music broadcasting as it combines a supercardiod pattern with superb definition to give high separation and true sound color on stage. In common with all DPA mics, d:facto features superior gain before feedback, while the inbuilt 3-step pop protection grid effectively removes unwanted noise.
d:facto has already been put through its paces on several TV shows, including Voice of Denmark, a standard format TV show broadcast in several countries. IBC visitors will have the opportunity to win one of these ground-breaking microphones by getting their badge scanned at the DPA stand. One lucky visitor will be chosen at random and the winner will be announced after the show.
At IBC 2012, DPA will also be showing its light-weight range of miniature microphones that are popular with broadcasters because they deliver excellent speech reproduction and can achieve quality pick up even when they are not directly aimed at the sound source.
DPA will complete is line up with its best-selling and versatile Reference Standard range of microphones that exhibit total transparency in any recording situation and are capable of picking up incredible detail and depth of sound.
