The DPA 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone uses five miniature pressure transducers. These transducers have low sensitivity to wind and mechanical noise. They also have a low distortion and low frequency response. They have a large dynamic range too.
Whether you want to mount the microphone on a stand, suspend it from the ceiling, or use a handgrip, the 5100’s versatility allows you to do all of these. In addition, it is lightweight and portable. It can also withstand inclement weather conditions due to its robust nature.
The three front microphones in this system are time aligned to eliminate comb filtering. This also ensures frequency consistency when down mixing to mono or stereo. In contrast, the two rear microphones (with standard omnidirectional patterns) are optimally spaced from both each other, and the front array, to simulate the most natural time arrival differences. The end result of DPA’s innovative design is a surround atmosphere that is exceptional. It is rich, smooth, full and enveloping, and great in its coherence. It also helps create channel separation and localisation accuracy.
The DPA 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone requires no external signal processing.
The 5100 includes:
- Outdoor Cover – OC5100
- Lemo Multipin to 6x XLR-M cable
