DPA Microphones has launched its new 2017 Shotgun Microphone. Designed to capture authentic sound with high directivity, clarity and consistency, the 2017 excels in challenging broadcast scenarios. With its durable design and ability to withstand any environment or extreme application, DPA’s newest solution is ideal for broadcast and live events, from traditional news and sports to location sound or musical performances.

"In an industry with a variety of shotgun microphones, we built the 2017 to stand out from the crowd," said Helga Volha Somava, Product Management Director, DPA Microphones. "Measuring just 184mm (7.24 inches) in length, the 2017 is more compact than many popular solutions and still offers impressive technological features. From its durable construction and ease of use to its leading acoustical properties, the 2017 can capture the energy of any event. Whether it is used in fixed positions at facilities or on camera systems and booms, our goal was to create a dedicated, optimized broadcast and live sound microphone that rivals the competition and provides exceptional value for professionals."

Designed to endure extreme weather and mechanical impact, the 2017 will hold up to travel and repeated use in harsh environments. The microphone persists in humid conditions and direct rain showers, as well as dry, arid environments. It has been tested for use in settings with temperatures up to 40°C (104°F) with 90-percent relative humidity, and cold environments as low as -40°C (-40°F). With a consistent ability to easily withstand the effects of moisture, the 2017 ensures that any broadcast or event can go live with incredible sound, no matter the setting or forecast.
