Soundfield is showing its first digital microphone, the DSF-2.
It can be used at up to nearly a mile from an associated broadcast vehicle; it simultaneously captures stereo and surround audio, which is marketed as a benefit to video users and may have interest now for radio as well.
Also on display: the recently introduced ST350 portable microphone for field recording. It weighs around 2/3 of a pound and measures about half the size of the olderST250 mic. Running from the mains or 9-18 V power cells, the ST350 may be used with cable runs of up to more than 600 feet from its control unit, even when operating from batteries. It is suitable for broadcasters who need a compact mic for live remote situations with surround capability.
