Neumann received an exceptionally enthusiastic response to the presentation of the first digital shotgun mic at the recent IBC. The acoustic properties of the KMR 81 D are based on those of its analog counterpart, which has been in successful applications worldwide for many years. Thus, it is a short shotgun mic with a pickup angle of 90 degrees and almost frequency-independent damping of sound originating from the side.

The digital version has integrated Solution-D circuit technology which is already familiar from other Neumann microphones. This includes an A/D converter that is specifically adapted to the capsule, and the option of using numerous signal processing features that have proved very helpful, particularly in an electronic news gathering (ENG) environment. The rapidly operating peak/compressor limiter has been found to be especially beneficial.

In addition to the parameters of the dynamics processor, all of the other settings that can be adjusted via the Remote Control Software, such as filter settings and gain, can be stored directly in the microphone. During production, the preprogrammed KMR 81 D can then be connected directly to a field recorder with an appropriate AES 42 input.

The KMR 81 D can be combined with the KK 120 from the Neumann miniature microphone system, with a figure-eight directional characteristic, to obtain a compact, completely digital MS stereo configuration.

The KMR 81 D was presented as a prototype at the IBC, and will be available beginning in spring 2010. Neumann has likewise announced a portable version of the DMI Digital Microphone Interface, powered by rechargeable batteries, also to be available in 2010. Wolfgang Fraissinet, President of Marketing/Sales explains: “These two products will greatly facilitate the realization of a completely digital workflow and the utilization of associated advantages, even for users in the ENG and film audio areas.”

Il s'agit d'un canon court avec un zone de captation de 90°. La conversion se fait via la technologie propriétaire Solution-D, soit un convertisseur A/D spécialement adapté à la capsule et intégrant un compresseur/limiteur ultra-rapide. Neumann préconise son emploi avec le KK 120 pour disposer d'un set de captation M/S complet.

Notez que le constructeur annonce aussi la sortie prochaine d'une version portable de son DMI (Digital Microphone Interface) alimentée par batteries. Quand? Comme pour le micro : aux alentours du printemps 2010.
