It’s technology, in small bite-sized amounts. We deal with all things motion picture. Follow the light: from the lenses that see, to the sensors and cameras that capture, to the computers and systems that process, the microphones that vibrate, the recorders, and the playback, we cover a little bit of everything. Each episode is one product. One company. One bite.
In partnership with CRAFT TRUCK we have our first film technology related video introducing the SCHOEPS CMIT 5U shotgun microphone which has set a new standard for shotgun microphones since its release. The CMIT 5U‘s directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies, which results in a very balanced sonic character. In addition to this, the microphone’s sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds, allowing these to be recorded neutrally as well as reducing the effects of movement during boom operation. The CMIT 5U also has a much stronger directionality than one might expect from a microphone of its length. If required, the CMIT 5U can also be used for music recordings, for example opera recordings.
- unusually low coloration of off-axis sound
- suitable for music recording as well as dialogue
- rotationally symmetrical polar pattern
- even greater immunity to wind noise than a SCHOEPS supercardoid
- very lightweight, robust all-metal housing
