Sony Introduces Compact Shotgun Microphone For Camcorder Use In Field And Studio Applications


LAS VEGAS (NAB Booth #SU107), April 23, 2006 - With the increased use of compact camcorders in broadcast, documentary and motion picture production, Sony has expanded its Electret Condenser Microphone series with the ECM-673 “Short” shotgun microphone.

The eight-inch microphone is designed for high-quality sound capture in field and studio environments, and can be used with any of Sony’s XDCAM™, HDV™ and DVCAM™ camcorders.

“The ECM-673 provides high sensitivity and low-noise characteristics in a rugged, compact design,” said Paul Foschino, senior marketing manager for professional audio at Sony Electronics. “In addition, at 4.9 ounces, this new mic is lightweight and provides videographers with perfectly balanced, easy-to-handle audio/video production capabilities.”

The new shotgun microphone offers sensitivity of 36dB; a low inherent-noise level of less than 17dB SPL; flat-and-wide frequency responses (40 Hz to 20 kHz); built-in low cut filter (two-position M,V), and a low-cut switch to provide users with a simple method of reducing the effects of undesired ambient noise.

Accessories include a windscreen, microphone holder, microphone spacer and cable.

The ECM-673 Electret Condenser Microphone is planned to be available in August at a suggested list price of $330.
