DPA unveils new podium microphones at InfoComm

The podium microphones are based on the company’s d:dicate Recording Microphones (formerly known as Reference Standard) and its renowned 4060 Miniature/d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones.

They combine the state-of-the-art d:dicate capsules with any of the company’s newly introduced modular active booms and modular active cables.  With several capsules to choose from, customers can access the exact microphone and boom or cable combination to meet their needs.

In addition to the high-end d:dicate solution, DPA has also developed a directional podium microphone based on two of its renowned miniature microphones, the 4060 and the d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphone.

These directional gooseneck microphones, which use interference tubes and pre-polarized backplates to ensure speech intelligibility, were originally devised on request from the Nobel Prize organization. In search of a dedicated podium solution for its 2012 Nobel Peace Prize presentation at Oslo City Hall in Norway, the organization required a microphone that could stand up to the acoustical challenges of its auditorium.

The microphone was subsequently adopted as a standard DPA product and is now available to all installation customers. The miniature podium microphone can also be used in a wireless configuration.

Both Podium Microphones will be available to the installation market beginning August 2013.
