SALT LAKE CITY, MARCH 7, 2016 – DPA Microphones will be debuting its line of d:screet™ Miniature Microphones at this year’s United States Institute for Theatre Technology convention | USITT (Booth 1501). On display at the company’s booth will be the d:screet™ 4061, d:screet™ Slim Microphone and d:screet™ Necklace Microphone.
“We are excited to debut our line of d:screet™ Miniature Microphones at this year’s USITT convention,” says James Capparelle, Marketing Manager, USA, for DPA Microphones. “Miking talent in a fast-paced theatre production can be an extremely delicate process. At DPA, we offer easy-to-use and easy-to-conceal high quality condenser microphones, providing sound designers on Broadway and productions alike the best tools possible to get the job done.
DPA’s d:screet™ 4061 Miniature Microphones are well-known and are used in theatres around the world. In situations where the talent requires flexibility of movement or when mics need to be cleverly concealed, the d:screet™ 4061 mics are incredibly popular. The d:screet™ 4061s offer clear, transparent and natural sound with very low noise and extremely high sensitivity. These mics are capable of handling up to 154 dB peak before clipping and have a linear response, low distortion and large dynamic range.
Developed in response to a growing need—particularly from the film/theatre industry—for a near-invisible bodyworn microphone, the d:screet™ Slim features the company’s omnidirectional capsule (either the d:screet™4060 with high sensitivity or the d:screet™4061 with standard sensitivity) in a flat head, a slender cable and an exciting new button-hole mount accessory. The new button-hole mount provides a 90-degree sound input angle, allowing the cable to lay flat against a surface rather than sticking out. It is also designed to fit into spaces as small as two millimeters and, when used with available accessories, can become virtually invisible.
The d:screet™ Necklace Microphone is tailor-made for the quick costume changes and transitional movements of live theatre. It can be mounted and removed quickly without the need of a sound expert and is especially useful for instances when on-and-off mounting and consistent audio output are primary concerns. Featuring DPA’s legendary d:screet™ 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace, the d:screet™ Necklace mic is available in black, white and brown and in lengths of either 18.3- or 20.9-inches.
