DPA Microphones Innovates In The Meetings World

phpox5cp3PMAlleroed, Denmark, November 10th, 2014: DPA’s new d:screet™ Omnidirectional Necklace Microphone is to feature in the Innovation Zone at the forthcoming EIBTM Global Meetings and Events Expo after it was recognised as a ground-breaking product by an independent jury appointed by the EIBTM.

EIBTM takes place in Barcelona from November 18-20, 2014. The Meeting Design Institute (MDI), a non-profit association that brings together education, tools and services to produce better meetings, is project managing EIBTM’s Innovation Zone and was represented on the EIBTM’s jury. MDI, of which DPA Microphones is now a member, represents a global community of companies and professionals that deliver meeting support or are involved in meeting design.

EIBTM attracts more than 15,000 international professionals involved in the meetings, events, conference, incentives and business travel industry. The exhibition’s Innovation Zone is a dedicated area on the show floor that offers visitors an educational, entertaining and inspirational experience by showing them revolutionary products that are designed to move the industry forward.

Already proving popular in the broadcast world where it has been used on a number of reality television shows including the Danish version of Big Brother, DPA’s d:screet Omnidirectional Necklace Microphone is also perfectly suited to the meetings and events industry because it is so rugged and reliable. Featuring the company’s legendary d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace, the microphone offers fast, repeatable, ‘do-it-yourself’ mounting and is designed specifically for use by non-technicians.

“We are really delighted that our d:screet Necklace Microphone has been recognised as an innovative product for the meetings industry,” says DPA’s CEO Christian Poulsen.  “This microphone was specifically designed to be very easy to use. Anyone can mount and remove it, which makes it ideal for meetings situations where participants are unlikely to have access to a trained sound engineer. With this product you don’t need any audio training because all you have to do is put it around your neck and fasten the clasp. The microphone’s clever design ensures that the microphone capsule is always in the right place to achieve the best possible sound.”

EIBTM chose to feature the DPA d:screet Omnidirectional Necklace Microphone in the Innovation Zone because it is a product that helps improve the outcome of meetings, conferences and events by making them more effective.
