DPA Microphones just launched the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone. Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s super-cardioid choir microphone, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance. Incorporated into the company’s new 4097 CORE Interview Kit, the mic has been designed for use with a lightweight boom and windjammer. This kit is aimed at journalists in today’s socially distanced world as it allows users to conduct interviews from up to two meters (6.5 feet) away. It is a plug-and-play solution that will enable users to get started quickly and employ their existing workflows.
The kit features one of DPA’s new 4099 Cold Shoe Mounts, which incorporates a one-quarter-inch thread; DPA MicroDot cable; transmitter plate; lightweight telescopic boom pole, to further ensure social distance protocols; and windjammer, to provide ideal conditions for outdoor productions. Terminating in a MicroDot connection, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun can attach directly to a transmitter or be used with the company’s 4099 series mounts, clamps and clips, for mounting on any surface. The mic can also be used as a plant mic solution for film and TV production environments.
