The MMC4017 capsule is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series.
Equipped with a highly directionalsupercardioid pickup pattern, obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection, the DPA 4017B combined with the MMP-Bpreamplifier is a short and exceptionally lightweight shotgunmicrophone that truly measures up to DPA's impressive reputation for accuracy, clarity, and musicality.
Designed for a broad range of applications, the 4017B is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast/ENG/film booming, and even studio recording environments.
Tune out the surroundings Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and behind the microphone. Minimizing the often very un-linear response of a shotgunmicrophone due to its side lobes is one of the key accomplishments of the MMC4017. The condensercapsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.
