DPA Microphones Introduces Two Podium Mics at AES Convention

Company designs Nobel solutions

ALLEROED, DENMARK—DPA Microphones will show its two podium microphones at the 135th International AES Convention.

Based on the company’s d:dicate recording microphones and miniature microphones, the solutions transmit clear, transparent and precise sound.

DPA is offering podium microphones that incorporate the modular capsules from its d:dicate Recording Microphones, 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 d:dicate capsules with any of the company’s newly introduced modular active booms and modular active cables. With several capsules to choose from, DPA customers can access the exact microphone and boom or cable combination to meet their needs.

In addition to the high-end d:dicate solution, DPA has also developed a directional podium microphone based on its renowned miniature microphones. These directional gooseneck microphones, which use interference tubes and pre-polarized backplates to ensure speech intelligibility, were originally developed on request from the Nobel Prize organization.

In search of a dedicated podium solution for its 2012 Nobel Peace Prize presentation at Oslo City Hall, the organization required a microphone that could stand up to the acoustical challenges of its auditorium. To fit the need, DPA Microphones 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. The company also positioned the capsule on a delicate gooseneck stand.

This miniature podium microphone can also be used in a wireless configuration with an adapter available for the range of miniature microphones.
