Christopher Spahr, VP of sales and marketing, DPA Microphones, Inc. talks about the 6000 Series subminiature microphone and more at NAB 2019.
Q What new products/services has your company introduced since last years' NAB?
A We recently unveiled our smallest microphone to date, the 6000 Series subminiature microphone, which is just 3mm in size. The series is comprised of three solutions, a lavalier version with two different sensitivities – the 6060 (max 134dB SPL) and 6061 (max 144dB SPL) – and also a headset version called the 6066. All options come in black or beige and are IP58-rated as waterproof and dustproof for durability.
Q Finish the sentence: 2019 will be the production industry’s year of _
A immersive experiences
Q What motivating factor drives you to continue innovating year after year?
A DPA always strives to make the best-sounding, most accurate microphones in the world, and we never settle for “good enough.” Just knowing that there can always be something better pushes us forward in that pursuit. A perfect example of this is the introduction of DPA’s CORE technology into our existing range of miniature microphones. We took an already great-sounding set of mics and made them better – not because the market was asking us to, but because we knew we could do better.
Q How would you describe the energy around this year’s NAB show?
A I think it’s as exciting as ever. As we get closer, manufacturers start to tease what they’ll be showing and people start discussing their plans for the show, so the energy always builds.
Q How has NAB evolved over the years?
A Every year, there seems to be more and more for attendees to do on the show floor – operating robots, flying drones, tons of contests to win prizes and interactive demonstrations, etc.
Q Where can we find you on the show floor?
