AUDIO-TECHNICA DISPLAYS BP896
MICROPOINT™ SUBMINIATURE LAVALIER MICROPHONE
— Company offers a subminiature omnidirectional lavalier condenser
microphone engineered to deliver high quality audio with low profile
design for on-camera applications —
INFOCOMM, ORLANDO, FL, June 17, 2009 —
displays its smallest lavalier offering to date, the BP896
MicroPoint™ Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone.
Intended for capture of high-quality audio with unobtrusive profile,
the BP896 provides maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction
for broadcasters, lecturers, church/house of worship users, actors and
presenters. The BP896 capsule measures a mere 2.5 mm in diameter, making
it ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility. The microphone
operates on phantom power and includes a complete accessory kit. The
BP896 is available in black and beige wired and wireless models. The
wireless offerings include a multitude of terminations designed to work
with Audio-Technica and other manufacturers’ wireless systems.
The ruggedly designed BP896 MicroPoint handles high SPLs
and offers a wide frequency response. The subminiature omni element
is enclosed in a durable, low-profile housing with internal construction
designed to minimize noise from handling, clothing and wind. The microphone
plugs into the included AT8539 power module, which provides a low-frequency
roll-off switch and an integral XLR3M connector supplying a low-impedance
balanced output. The extensive accessory kit includes a clothing clip
base, viper clip base, three single mic holders, two double mic holders,
two windscreens, and six element covers (two each in black, white, and
beige) for blending in with users’ attire. A protective carrying
case is also included.
