DPA Microphones to Debut 2017 Shotgun Microphone at ISE 2024


DPA Microphones will debut the 2017 Shotgun Microphone to the EMEA markets at ISE 2024 (Stand 7B910, Hall 7). “Designed to capture authentic sound with high directivity, clarity and consistency,” the company says the 2017 excels in various challenging AV, live performance and broadcast scenarios. Its versatility, durable design and ability to withstand difficult environments or extreme weather make the 2017 ideal for integrators that address an array of applications—such as affixed to a fly bar in theaters or concert settings or in fixed setups in live sports and news.

Designed to endure extreme weather and mechanical impact, DPA says the 2017 will hold up to travel and repeated use in harsh environments. The company says microphone persists in humid conditions and direct rain showers, as well as dry, arid environments. It has been tested for use in settings with temperatures up to 45°C (113°F) with 90 percent relative humidity and cold environments as low as -40°C (-40°F). With a consistent ability to withstand the effects of moisture, the company says the 2017 ensures that any event can go live with incredible sound, no matter the setting or forecast.

Featuring a specifically designed capsule that is perfectly paired with a  interference tube and microphone grid, the 2017 offers outstanding performance, both on- and off-axis. It has a high degree of off-axis rejection, which permits the main source to stand out. This heavily attenuated off-axis audio is authentic and extremely usable for mixing into the entire soundscape.
