Bulgarian International Television (BiT), a Chicago-based TV station serving Bulgarians in the US, has revealed its decision to use DPA Microphones to fulfil the audio requirements of all its programmes.

With several d:screet™ 4061 omnidirectional miniature microphones integrated into its live production process, the mics were selected for their ability to be easily concealed on the wardrobes of news reporters, television personalities and guests.

George Simeonov, technical director at BiTelevision, says: “We weren’t in need of replacing our previous mics, but we weren’t satisfied with the sound they produced either. Before switching to DPA, we had to use a ridiculous amount of EQ and compression to get the sound levels just right. Now, with the d:screets, we see a huge difference, using little to no EQ. As soon as we received them, it was instantly a plug-and-play situation with our existing gear.”

Intended for broadcast and other live performances, the d:screet 4061 capsule is built to compensate for the potential loss of vocals when hidden by clothing and can block out undesired sounds to ensure clear audio production. The mic is favoured for its small and concealable size, while it is recognised by professional audio engineers for its natural sound.
