Orlando, FLâ€“â€“CAD Audio is announcing at InfoComm that its Remote Variable Pattern products are now compatible with Biamp Audia Â® and NexiaÂ®, Symetrix Symnetâ„¢, and AtteroTechÂ® Control Center Softwareâ„¢.
CAD Audioâ€™s Variable Pattern Control microphones can be set up using the respective software modules located within the DSP design software. This control block can be adjusted on the fly, built into system presets or accessed from a remote location via IP.
The Custom Variable Pattern Control Blocks are included with each Remote Variable Pattern mic by CAD Audio, a line that currently includes the 2220VP, 2600VP, 2700VP and 2800VP mics.
The 2220VP is a boundary “button” microphone designed for installation in tables, walls or ceilings for use in conference and meeting room applications. It can also be used in observation and ambient monitoring audio systems. The remote variable pattern provides ultimate flexibility for multi-use rooms and establishing
the proper polar pattern for any application.
Designed to hang from a ceiling, the 2600VP is effective in the recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, stage productions and conference room applications, the company says. Easy to install, it allows easy polar pattern control without requiring ladders for access to the microphone.
The 2700VP is supplied with a low-profile 56″ carbon fiber boom for mic stand mounting and is highly effective in the recording and sound reinforcement of vocal groups, orchestral point miking of instruments where a traditional suspended microphone is inappropriate.
The 2800VP is supplied with an 18″ dual-flex gooseneck with XLR-M quick mount. It is designed to be used on a podium where the polar pattern can be actively adjusted according to the person or persons using the microphone.
The remote variable polar pattern control system employs a two conductor shielded cable (maximum length 2,000′) between the microphone head and the DSP microphone input. This feature enables the installer or end user to change polar patterns from the DSP software. Patterns can be changed from week to week or scene to scene without inducing noise into the audio chain. Adjustments to the pick-up pattern can be made on the fly without changing capsules or using additional mic accessories.
The 2220VP, 2600VP, 2700VP, and 2800VP have been designed to resist interference from cell phones, two-way communication devices and lighting apparatus. Using Astatic’s RF Resistant Architecture, both meet the stringent RF standards set by the European Union.
