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 technology is now being applied to our line of microphones. The Capture series, consisting of the KMC20V and KMC20H, features 8 x 4 mm cardioid capsules aligned in a line array configuration and a includes a preamplifier (48V Phantom power required) and a stand adapter so that it is compatible with any microphone stand. The mic can be arranged in both orientations with specific mounting hardware depending on the installation needs. A 4.75-mm-thick HT800 silicone anti-vibration pad is fastened under the base to guarantee the lowest transmission of noise from the surface to the microphone array and has a sand-blasted galvanic ruthenium finish.
With all the advantages of a K-array line array speaker, the Captures shows a minimal variation of gain with distance. As a result, the distance between the orator and the microphone is not crucial and he is able 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.
While when mounted in horizontal, the registration is very wide on the vertical plane and very narrow on the horizontal plane, resulting in capturing only the person in front of the microphone while standing or sitting.
And given its thickness of 6mm, these incredibly thin microphones are impressively discreet for a variety of applications in conference halls, board rooms, houses of worship and TV studios.

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.
