The PZM6 D high-performance hemispherical boundary layer microphone is designed for many applications, from miking full orchestras or individual musical instruments to security or teleconferencing, as well as film and video productions. A very small metal housing makes the PZM6 D even more inconspicuous than the PZM30 D.
Two selectable frequency responses (flat/rising) provide greater flexibility in mic placement and sonic character. The rising position delivers bright sound without boosting high frequencies on the recording console. The flat position provides a smooth, flat, high-frequency response for natural sound reproduction. The PZM6 D provides a professional XLR connector on a fixed cable.
The PZM6 D is a Pressure Zone Microphone designed for professional recording, sound reinforcement, teleconferencing and broadcasting. Its low profile, unobtrusive appearance is appreciated in conference rooms, as well as on television, film and video productions.
When suspended over an orchestra on a clear panel, the PZM practically disappears. Its miniature, permanently attached cable also reduces visual clutter.
The PZM6 D has a switchable dual frequency response: rising or flat. The “rising” position adds brilliance. This makes it useful wherever a crisp attack is desired, such as on percussion, drums or piano. The user can get a bright sound without boosting high frequencies on the recording console; the benefit is lower noise. The “flat” position provides a smooth, flat high-frequency response for natural sound reproduction.
Capable of withstanding up to 150 dBSPL without distortion, the PZM will never overload in practical use. Its electret condenser capsule provides a wide, smooth frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Self noise is low, and sensitivity is high enough to override mixer noise in distant-miking applications.
Like other Pressure Zone Microphones, the 6D utilizes the Pressure Recording Process™in which a miniature condenser microphone capsule is arranged very close to a sound-reflecting plate or boundary. The capsule is mounted in the “Pressure Zone” just above the boundary, a region where sound coming directly from the sound source combines in phase with sound reflected off the boundary. The benefits are a wide, smooth frequency response free of phase interference, excellent clarity and “reach,” a hemispherical polar pattern and uncolored off-axis response.
