Incredibly thin line array microphone with Pure Array Technology
Ever since we launched our first slim column speaker in 2007, we have maintained our leadership in sleek line arrays. With every subsequent product release, we've managed to perfect our line arrays composed of closely-spaced, full-range sound sources by incorporating our Pure Array Technology. This same line array technology is has been applied to our Capture microphones.
The Capture series has four different models – the KMC20, KMC20V, KMC20H and KMC50 – to adapt to different applications and setup requirements.
The Capture-KMC20 is the smallest line array microphone in the market featuring PAT technology composed of 8 x 4 mm cardioid capsules aligned in a line array configuration and the Capture-KMC50 is the natural evolution of our Capture line, featuring 16 x 6 mm electret condenser cardioid capsules in an slender 50-cm line array configuration.
With all the advantages of a K-array Pure Array Technology, the Captures shows a minimal variation of gain with distance. As a result, the distance between the orator and the microphone is not crucial allowing the orator to move towards or away from the mic freely without strongly affecting the volume or audio quality.
The polar response is cardioid in the horizontal plane and very narrow in the vertical plan, therefore, when mounted in vertical, not only does the mic not pick up sound from behind, but it’s also insensitive to sounds that come from above and below, strongly reducing the amount of ambient sound captured. Being very wide in the horizontal plane, a single microphone can pick up more people and gives maximum freedom of movement to the right and left without volume fluctuations.
When mounted in horizontal, the microphone shows very narrow horizontal pick-up angle and cardioid vertical polar patter, resulting in capturing only the person in front of the microphone while standing or sitting.
Dedicated accessories are available to arrange the microphone to suit users’ needs while still maintaining a clean and sleek setup including a flown, multi-unit line array configuration.

For architectural reasons, a visually discreet audio system may be required to integrate seamlessly with the layout without compromising sound quality.
We created a portfolio complete with lightweight products that are easy to transportation and quick to setup optimizing logistics, space, labor costs and time.
