Anaheim, CAâ€“â€“ The future of microphone polar pattern control is now taking shape with CAD Audioâ€™s Remote Variable Pattern products now featuring Biamp Audia and Nexia Digital Audio Platforms.
CAD Audio Variable Pattern Control microphones can be set up using a custom control block located within the Biamp 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 â€œButtonâ€? microphone designed to be installed 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 highly effective in the recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, stage productions and conference room applications. 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 56â€? 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 (max length 2,000 feet) between the microphone head and the Biamp digital audio platform. This feature enables the installer or end use 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 â€œon the flyâ€? 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 Astaticâ€™s RF Resistant Architecture, both meet the stringent RF standards set by the European Union.
