Kramer’s Omnivore KM-2B is a microphone designed for UCC applications. The patent-pending Omnivore KM-2B is a dual boundary microphone that eliminates comb filtering and has three selectable polar patterns, allowing versatility for any installation:
- Omnidirectional — For use in small/medium meeting spaces
- Sub-cardioid — Under the display in a huddle space
- Cardioid — On the podium for the lecturer
Kramer says a selectable high-pass filter (HPF) at 120Hz helps to avoid any “boominess” and table noises. The two microphones in the KM-2B can be summed into a single channel or output two separate signals for redundancy in critical installations or recordings of a conversation between two people, each with their microphone. A boost mode of an extra 12dB of microphone sensitivity allows a gain stage — if the microphone is far from the speaker or in case the volume is too high, boost can be canceled to avoid clipping at the microphone.
Omnivore KM-2B will be available from Q3, 2020 and is here.
