New from Astatic, the 930VP low-noise, variable-pattern surface-mounted boundary microphone comes as either cardioid, supercardioid, figure-8 and omnidirectional patterns and offers a wide range of polar patterns for optimum gain before feedback.
With a frequency response of 5 0 to 18k Hz, the 930VP comes with a multifunction mute membrane switch and selectable highpass filter, making it useful for houses of worship, conference tables, stage floors or broadcast production situations. It features an advanced, self-contained transformerless design.
Engineered for user-friendliness, the 930VP contains a soft-touch membrane switch with a programmable LED indicator light. The membrane switch may be configured in any of four operating modes: push-to-talk, push-to mute, momentary talk and momentary mute. The mic will power up as “on” or power up as “off” based on the switch programming.
The 930VP is equipped with a switch-selectable 12dB-per-octave highpass filter that eliminates unnecessary low frequencies, reducing the need for additional signal processing.
The 930VP features a die-cast zinc base and perforated steel screen construction with a foam filter located under the steel screen to suppress pops and wind noise. A thick, soft rubber-foam pad on the bottom of the mic provides shockmount isolation, while preventing the mic from sliding across a surface. The tamper-resistant, variable-pattern selector, membrane switch and highpass programming are flush-mounted on the bottom of the mic.
