DPA MICROPHONES - Shotgun

12 items

This range of shotgun microphones from DPA have been designed and manufactured for broadcast audio and location recording where distancing from subject, or recording from a distance is required.


4097 CORE Micro Shotgun - Directional

4097 CORE has a ‘highly directional’ pickup pattern with a linear response and large dynamic range of 110dB typical to offer a natural sound from quiet to loud vocal performances. Off-axis pickup, when the audio is captured from the side of the microphone capsule, retains the audio quality however it lowers the input level captured. This is especially useful when an engineer needs to use fewer microphones as pointing at the back row of the choir balances the sound with the side pickup from the front rows of singers.

Frequency response: 20Hz – 20kHz. Frequency range, +/- 2dB, 20cm: 80Hz – 15kHz, with 2dB soft boost at 10-12kHz. Sensitivity: 16mV/Pa, -36dB re 1V/Pa. Equivalent noise level: 23dB typical. S/N ratio: 71dB, A-weighted, 1kHz at 1Pa, 94dB SPL. Total harmonic distortion: less than 1%, up to 133dB peak. Dynamic range: 110dB, typical. Maximum SPL: 135dB, before clipping.


4097 CORE Interview Kit

The DPA CORE Interview Kit allows sound engineers to obtain high quality audio whilst retaining distance between engineer and subject. A Manfrotto boompole extends to 140cm and holds the 4097 CORE mini shotgun gooseneck microphone via the included CS4099 cold shoe mount. When collapsed the kit is around 40cm in length and 330g in weight.

Contents
  • 1x 4097-DC-G-B100-010 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun microphone
  • 1x CM2218B00 1.8m MicroDot cable
  • 1x Plate for transmitter bodypack
  • 1x 330mm hook and loop strap
  • 1x CS4099 cold shoe mount
  • 1x Rycote Windjammer with DPA 4099 Mini Windjammer
  • 1x 40-140cm Manfrotto MPCOMPACT-BK telescopic boom

The included 1.8m MicroDot cable links the microphone capsule to the handle of the boompole, whereby a bodypack transmitter can be attached using the included plate and hook and look system. Various optional MicroDot adapters are available to suit a variety of transmitter connection types. The transmitter plate can also be attached to the base end of the boompole if preferred.


2017 Shotgun Microphone - Supercardioid, Directional

DPA 2017 is a pre-polarised condenser microphone for directional shotgun audio gathering. The microphone has been designed to offer a natural sound from the primary source and complimentary natural sound captured off-axis. 2017 has been engineered with no moving parts for durability with resistance to moisture, temperature, and condensation. 2017 shows attenuation at 90-degrees (around -10dB) and maximal rejection around 125-degrees (more than -20dB). The microphone's polar pattern provides a more even pickup of 'on-scene' (0-degrees) )sound sources, and a larger rejection of out-of-scene noises, thereby achieving a better overall performance.

With a sound pressure level handling of 143dB SPL Peak, a low self-noise of 13 dB(A), and a 130dB dynamic range, DPA 2017 is useful in applications where shotguns are not traditionally known to perform well. A permanent 3rd order low-cut filter at 60Hz has been included to eliminate unwanted low frequency noise such as rumble and handling noise. The filter is intentionally placed low and steep to ensure the richness of the voice, ambience or other captured sound.

Included accessories: UA0691 microphone holder, UA0073 foam windscreen, S-DKH0011 zip pouch.

Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz; 70Hz - 18kHz, at 60cm. Sensitivity: 25mV/Pa; -32 dB re. 1V/Pa, +/-2dB at 1kHz. Equivalent noise level: 13dB(A), Typ; 15dB(A), max, re 20µPa. Distortion: 140dB SPL RMS, 143dB SPL peak. Dynamic range: 130dB, typical. Maximum SPL: 148dB SPL, peak. Rate output impedance: 60ohms. Power supply: +48V phantom power. Current consumption: 1.8 mA. Dimensions (DxL): 19 x 184mm. Weight: 115g.


4017 Shotgun Microphone - Supercardioid, Directional

The pre-polarised condenser 4017 shotgun microphones have a 'highly-directional' pickup pattern due to the combination of the supercardioid design and an interference tube to provide off-axis rejection. Because of this, the 4017 microphones are often used for broadcast ENG or film on booms, or fixed in sports arenas.

4017B has two on-board filters, activated by twisting two rings on the microphone body, to add a high frequency boost of 4dB at 8kHz to compensate for the loss incurred with windjammers. Frequencies below 120Hz can be reduced with a switched, first-order (6dB reduction per octave), filter to remove unwanted handling and wind noise. A third order (24dB reduction per octave) filter, set at 50Hz, is permanently in effect to eliminate the lowest handling noise. The 4017B weighs 68g and is 210mm in length. 4017C does not have these filters, is 154mm in length and weighs 70g.

Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz; 40Hz - 20kHz, at 30cm. Sensitivity: 19mV/Pa; -34.4 dB re. 1V/Pa, +/-2dB at 1kHz. Equivalent noise level: 13dB(A), Typ; 15dB(A), max, re 20µPa. Distortion: 134dB SPL RMS, 137dB SPL peak. Dynamic range: 124dB, typical. Maximum SPL: 146dB SPL, peak. Rate output impedance: 100ohms. Power supply: +48V phantom power. Current consumption: 2.8 mA. Dimensions (DxL): 19 x 154mm. Weight: 73g.
