Audio-Technica Showcasing at ISE 2024
- 24 January, 2024
UK: Audio-Technica will be showcasing its broadcast-oriented BP3600 Immersive Audio Microphone
at ISE 2024 alongside an array of its other fixed installation audio solutions. The event has assumed increasing importance for the brand over the last five years or so and currently presents an ideal opportunity to meet customers and end-users from a wide variety of industries across EMEA.
A premium broadcast audio tool capable of capturing stable, three-dimensional sound beds at sporting events, concerts, movie sets and more, the BP3600 features eight compact capsule assemblies with excellent high-frequency characteristics integrated into the body while remaining compact and lightweight enough for single-operator usability and easy setup. Direct routing is also possible, with no need for additional decoding or latency processing with 5.1.4-channel speaker layouts.
The BP3600’s eight microphone modules extend from the body to form a cube with 15cm (5.9 inches) between each microphone assembly. Each microphone assembly in the eight-channel near-coincident array is equipped with a 12mm (0.47-inch) hypercardioid capsule to produce ideally separated, discrete signals and deliver immersive audio experiences with ample spaciousness.
When used in a typical 5.1.4 immersive scenario, the four upper microphone channels can be assigned to the upper speaker channels and the four lower channels can be assigned to the lower speaker channels. This eliminates the need for additional decoding or latency processing during routing.
User-friendliness is enhanced with the main unit’s highly visible color-coded and numbered channel indicator rings that allow for easy identification of channels. To ensure that on-site setup is simple when time is limited, each microphone assembly features a lock that guarantees precise, repeatable positioning and prevents accidental removal. These connector locks additionally protect the microphone terminals from the elements, including rain and make disconnecting an assembly quick and reliable. Also included is a safety strap that can be connected to drop-prevention wires when used above spectators in stadiums, auditoriums, or other venues.
With the increased interest in immersive audio in broadcast and other applications, the BP3600 microphone is designed to assist in the capture of surround sound with as user-friendly
a workflow as possible.
