VT 106HOF : SWEAT RESISTANT CARDIOD

Price upon request
Short description:

Cardiod Microphone | Sweat resistant microphone, perfect sound in a watertight housing

01-MIC-LAV-019

The VT106HOF Miniature Cardioid Microphone (High Open Frequencies) has a  clear and open sound pickup and high sensitivity. The complex manufacturing process enables a high level of water resistance so that the microphone can be used in demanding production environments. Microphones for use in theatre performances and musicals need to meet specific demands. They have to be as unbotrusive as possible when integrated into costumes, they need to be durable and still have to transmit voices with best possible quality. Voice Technologies developed the VT106HOF in cooperation with Hof theatre, addressing all these requirements.

With applications in theatre performances and musicals in particular in mind, Voice Technologies developed a special rubber mount for the VT106HOF. The “Rubber Face Mound” RFM is attached directly to the performer’s face, holding the microphone in perfect position … a perfect mix of unobtrusive mounting and optimal sound performance.

 

Applications

  • Theatre
  • Musicals
  • Reality shows

Microphones for use in theatre performances and musicals need to meet specific demands. They have to be as unobtrusive as possible when integrated into costumes, they need to be durable and still have to transmit voices with the best possible quality.  Voice Technologies developed the VT106HOF in cooperation with Hof theatre, addressing all these requirements.

The original impulse for the development of the VT106HOF came from Christoph Haas, sound engineer at Hof theatre. The engineer kept experiencing problems with the microphones used as they could not withstand the performers' sweat and would fail. "Some performers would wear out up to four capsules during a show," Haas explains and points to the tremendous financial cost caused by the situation, not to mention the embarrassment of the sound failing during a show. Even a second microphone, when integrated into the costume before the show as back-up, would not solve the problem. "It happened a number of times," Haas shares his experience, "that I wanted to use the back-up but it had already been rendered useless by the sweat."

Looking for a solution, Haas came across the watertight lavalier microphones from Voice Technologies and immediately reached out. The result of this cooperation is the VT106HOF: A watertight miniature microphone with cardioid directivity for ideal feedback supppression and a pronounced proximity effect. Sweat induced malfunctions are a thing of the past at Hof theatre now.

The exceptional resistance of the VT106HOF is largely due to the elaborate injection moulding process used in its manufacturing. The VT106HOF is manufactured in Switzerland to the highest standards and thus achieves a particularly long lifespan, rendering frequent renewing of equipment unnecessary.

For applications in theatre performances and musicals Voice Technologies developed a special rubber mount for the VT106HOF. The "Rubber Face Mount" RFM is attached directly to the performer's face, holding the microphone in perfect position.. a perfect mix of unobtrusive mounting and optimal sound performance.
