DPA 4097 Core Micro Shotgun MicrophoneDPA Microphones has added the 4097 Core Micro Shotgun Microphone to its microphone line-up. Part of the company’s new 4097 Core Interview Kit, the mic is designed for use with a lightweight boom and windjammer – and is well suited to use in socially-distanced interview situations as it works well from up to 2m (6.5ft) from a source.

The kit features one each of DPA’s new 4099 Cold Shoe Mount, which incorporates a quarter-inch thread; DPA MicroDot cable; transmitter plate; lightweight telescopic boom pole, to further ensure social distance protocols; and windjammer, to provide ideal conditions for outdoor productions. Terminating in a MicroDot connection, the 4097 Core Micro Shotgun can attach directly to a transmitter or be used with the company’s 4099 series mounts, clamps and clips, for easy mounting on any surface. The mic can also be used as a plant mic solution for film and TV production environments.

‘The 4097 Core Micro Shotgun was designed as a solution to help complement broadcasters’ toolboxes,’ says, Product Manager, René Mørch. ‘Prior to social distancing protocols, a typical interview incorporated standard handheld or lavalier mics. The 4097 Core Micro Shotgun provides professional sound in a lightweight package, which is perfect for current production needs. Additionally, at 330g (12oz) without the transmitter, the Interview Kit is a more lightweight and flexible solution than traditional boom mics.

The mic can also be used to capture voiceovers from reporters, which are typically completed following an interview. As news voiceovers are often recorded in rooms or vehicles with less optimal acoustics, the mic’s directional characteristics enable it to dramatically reduce background noise compared to a standard omni-directional lavalier microphone.

When used in conjunction with DPA’s lightweight MMA-A Digital Audio Interface, the 4097 Core Micro Shotgun becomes a complete remote recording package. The interface is a high-quality, two-channel microphone preamp and A/D converter offering mono, dual and stereo capabilities. Compatible with iOS devices, Mac or PC computer, the MMA-A provides crystal clear audio to, and from, anywhere in the world.

The supercardioid 4097 Core Micro Shotgun offers a highly directional pickup pattern as well as low self-noise, with a flat off-axis frequency response. With speech intelligibility at the top of DPA’s development requirements, the 4097 Core Micro Shotgun features 16mV sensitivity and is capable of handling high SPLs.

With integrated Core by DPA amplifier technology, the microphone claims low distortion and a wide dynamic range. As with all Core by DPA mics, it is IP58 certified for protection against water and dust. This durability is achieved through a water-repellent nano-coating of the cover and housing, hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic and dual gold plating of the diaphragm.

Configured with a MicroDot connector, one of DPA’s many adapters can be used for either wired or wireless applications, making the 4097 Core Micro Shotgun a truly flexible solution. The mic also includes an integrated shockmount similar to the one found in the DPA 4099 mics.
