At InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Fla., CAD Audio plans to announce that its Remote Variable Pattern products are now compatible with Biamp Audia and Nexia, Symetrix Symnet, and AtteroTech Control Center Software products. CAD Audio's Variable Pattern Control microphones can be set up using the respective software modules located within the DSP design software. This control block can be adjusted on the fly, built into system presets, or accessed from a remote location via IP, according to the company.
The custom variable pattern control blocks are included with each CAD Audio Remote Variable Pattern mic, a line that currently includes the 2220VP, 2600VP, 2700VP and 2800VP mics. The remote variable polar pattern control system employs a two-conductor shielded cable up to 2,000 feet long between the microphone head and the DSP microphone input. It enables the installer or end user to change polar patterns from the DSP software. Patterns can be changed from week to week or scene to scene without inducing noise into the audio chain. Adjustments to the pick-up pattern can be made on the fly without changing capsules or using additional mic accessories.
The 2220VP is a boundary "button" microphone designed for installation in tables, walls, or ceilings for use in conference and meeting room applications. It can also be used in observation and ambient monitoring audio systems.
Designed to hang from a ceiling, the 2600VP is effective in the recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, stage productions, and conference room applications, the company says. It allows easy polar pattern control without requiring ladders for access to the microphone.
The 2700VP comes with a low-profile 56-inch carbon fiber boom for mic stand mounting and the 2800VP has an 18-inch dual-flex gooseneck with XLR-M quick mount. It is designed to be used on a podium where the polar pattern can be actively adjusted according to the person or persons using the microphone.
The 2220VP, 2600VP, 2700VP, and 2800VP have been designed to resist interference from cell phones, two-way communication devices, and lighting apparatus, according to the company.
