DPA Broadcast Microphones Guide

DPA Microphones makes industry leading broadcast microphones for capturing sound, equally at home in Electronic News Gathering (ENG) or interview situations as they are in TV and radio studios.

Rugged and dependable, DPA Microphones takes great care to make sure the tolerance levels for every mic that leaves their factory in Denmark are incredibly stringent. This means that one DPA 4060 CORE Lavalier Microphone will be almost indistinguishable from another, guaranteeing excellent sound, consistently. Although practically any of their microphone capsules will work in one configuration or another, here are the main broadcast microphones from DPA Microphones that are readily used in the Broadcast industry:

DPA 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun and Interview Kit

With its supercardioid polar plot, the DPA 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone offers a highly-directional pick-up pattern as well as low self noise and high sensitivity. The mic is capable of handling high SPLs, which allows it to deliver undistorted natural sound, even when users speak loudly or yell. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, it sounds great no matter how challenging the environment. In addition, dialog and background noise off to the side (off-axis) of the microphone preserves the audio quality; it just drops in level.

The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic is outfitted specifically so that it can be used in difficult filming locations like a car. Its foam windscreen

protects it from wind noise, even when windows are down (due to tight spaces and camera placement). The built-in shock mount is also particularly useful when filming in a moving car. It has a small, slim, unobtrusive footprint and a black matte, non-reflective surface, which diminishes reflections from lights, making it even easier on the film crew.

When you’re doing distance interviewing inside or out, the 4097 CORE Interview Kit gets you up and running quickly and easily. No extra equipment. No complicated setup. No workflow changes. A lighter, more flexible solution lightens your bag and eases your work.
