Emotion conveyed with technical perfection. This is the ideal which the Neumann microphones in the Broadcast Line have been designed to fulfill. The fine-tuning to the requirements of professional broadcast studios and the individual, functionally optimized design ensure that these are microphones of character.
The BCM 705 is Neumann's first dynamic microphone
. The housing and headgrille are identical to those of the BCM 104
; only the green logo indicates that this is something new from Neumann. The principle of reduction to the essentials can be seen in the dynamic capsule
with a hypercardioid directional
characteristic, specifically designed for speech reproduction at close range. Multi-level
isolation from structure-borne noise
ensures operation free of interference, even in a lively studio environment.Mechanical Features
headgrille twists off easily for quick cleaning. Neumann offers optional, color-coded headgrilles so that, for reasons of hygiene, each announcer can use his or her individual headgrille.
The microphones of the Broadcast Line have an elastic mount against structure-borne noise
, that is compatible with standard broadcast-segment microphone
The frequency response
has a light treble
boost, in the region from 2 kHz
to 9 kHz
, aiding the speech intelligibility. The bass frequency response
is designed to compensate for the overemphasis of the bass
caused by the proximity effect
.The integrated Pop Screen
A pop screen
not only prevents the occurrence of plosive pop noises in vocal recordings, but also efficiently prevents unwanted particles, from respiratory moisture, nicotine, to food remnants, from settling on the diaphragm
The preferred mode of operation is to suspend the BCM 104
or BCM 705 from a standard studio boom arm.
A thread adapter to fit different connector threads is included. In order to provide protection from structure-borne noise
, both the capsule
and the microphone
in its mount are elastically suspended.
The optional SG 5
swivel mount allows additional angling of the microphone
by +/-90 degrees.The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries.
