What’s The Frequency, Kenneth: An Overview Of Wireless Microphone Technology
There are many audio capture technologies at the disposal of today’s filmmakers, not least of which is the wireless microphone. The advantages of using a wireless microphone to capture professional audio is obvious: it gives all members of the production the ability to move around freely without the encumbrance of wires. Plus, the wireless mic is always in close proximity to your speaking subject, giving you the best possible signal-to-background-noise ratio.
The DXA-MICRO PRO+ gives you all the features you need to record high quality audio directly to your camera from virtually any source – no syncing required. Superb operation and ease of use make capturing pro audio a snap. The compact size makes it ideal for use with the latest mirrorless cameras. New features include: Built-in LiPo battery that will power the unit for up to 10 hours. Micro USB power jack for charging and external power. Removable Cheese plate to easily mount accessories.
