- Specific interview kit for broadcast
This mic makes it easy to deliver great sound in challenging situations. It shines in outdoor locations, handling inclement weather and limiting intrusive background noises. It’s a professional solution for professional broadcasters.
Rugged enough for film sets
Wind machines, rain machines, tight costumes, quick changes – these are normal situations on some film sets and they require durable microphones. The 4097 Plant Mic was built to withstand harsh use as well as water, wind, dust, heat, cold and many other tough conditions that can be commonly found both on location and on a film set.
Mount the microphone directly on the transmitter and place it on a podium or table. This is a quick and easy mic solution with a very small presence.
Interference tube and CORE by DPA technology
The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic uses a small-diaphragm, pre-polarized condenser capsule with a supercardioid pickup pattern mounted deep inside a small interference tube, which sits inside of a small replaceable foam windscreen. The interference tube used increases the mic's directionality, while maintaining flat on-axis frequency response and consistent off-axis response. Increased directionality, combined with good off-axis rejection, allows the microphone to isolate what should be picked up while attenuating sounds from the sides and rear. CORE by DPA is a powerful technology at the heart of DPA's miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion across the entire dynamic range. You will experience increased audio clarity and openness. All CORE by DPA technology microphones, including the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic, are IP58 certified.
