カメラ用コンパクトステレオショットガンマイク。 2つのミニショットガンマイクにより、MKE 440は、軸外ノイズを排除しながら、必要なオーディオを確実にキャプチャします。
MKE 440には、2つの位置合わせされたミニショットガンマイクがあり、MKE 440が軸外ノイズを排除しながら、必要なオーディオをキャプチャできるようにします。この機能は、従来のステレオマイクとは一線を画しています。最適化された音響特性と調整可能な感度を備えたMKE440は、スピーチ、音楽、または雰囲気に最適です。ステンレス鋼のマイクロメッシュ防風は、風切り音を低減し、サウンドの細かい高周波ディテールを保護します。
Upgrading your DSLR audio
A new, patented V-shaped design of two shotguns is Sennheiser’s fantastic solution for stereo audio captured by camera shoe-mounted microphones. This configuration covers a stereo width equivalent to the image created by common 35-mm camera lenses. The spread is very uniform and delivers high speech intelligibility in its focus.
What you see is what you hear
The Stereomic MKE 440 operates with two short shotgun mics, mounted in a unique “V-stereo” configuration. It highlights the sound of the video image while rejecting off-axis noise from outside the camera focus.
Unique and highly directional – the stereo V
For generating stereo sound, where two microphones are needed, shotguns are not commonly used. Thus, many stereo videos sound rather distant and reverberant while a lot of unwanted off-focus noise is captured unsuppressed.
Our solution is a new, patented V-shaped design of two shotguns. This configuration covers a stereo width equivalent to the image created by common 35-mm camera lenses. The spread is very uniform and delivers high speech intelligibility in its focus.
Patented Shockmount against handling noise
microphones are susceptible to create structure-borne noise when being handled, e.g. when the camera they are mounted to is moved. That’s why the MKE 440 is fitted with a specially developed patented shockmount. Exactly adjusted to the weight and dimensions of the shotgun microphone tube, it ensures optimal rejection of handling noise. The rubber suspension is secured within the protecting metal mesh.
A rugged design
A very robust and durable stainless steel micro-mesh protects the microphones and provides wind noise suppression. As opposed to regular foam windscreens, the metal mesh will not influence the sound by muffling high frequency clarity. Furthermore, it serves as a shield against electromagnetic interference.
High dynamic electronics
The integrated battery-powered, high dynamic electronic circuit matches the output signal of the MKE 440 to the camera’s input sensitivity. Thus, handling a dynamic range from the most delicate sounds to screaming-loud rock music. The low cut filter reduces structure-borne noise and low-frequency wind noise. The MKE 440 offers extra-long operation time of more than 100 hours on a pair of AAA batteries¸ and even delivers full audio performance on lowbatt operation.
