Designed for video production and broadcast (ENG/EFP) audio acquisition, the AT8015 provides the narrow acceptance angle desirable for long-distance sound pickup, along with excellent sound rejection from the sides and rear of mic. The roll-off position reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations.
Generally, the tube interference of this type of microphone can be extended to reduce the acceptance angle and thus increase the sound capture distance. Shorter condenser microphones do not have as long-a range as long as the shotgun models, but are favoured for their greater acceptance angle in some cases, when the accuracy of the source is less important.
The low-cut position reduces the sensitivity to ambient low frequency noise such as traffic noise, ventilation, reverberation of the room or mechanical vibrations transmitted through the recording device.
The AT8015 shotgun microphone can be powered in two ways for reaching maximum versatility. You can use it on a professional camera or recorder equipped with XLR inputs with phantom power, or by using a 1.5V AA battery (included) on any device equipped with XLR inputs.
Its very narrow directivity provides the narrow acceptance angle needed for long-distance sound pickup while maintaining excellent rejection of off-axis noise. The AT8015 guarantees you very specific audio capture with high intelligibility.
Two power modes to choose from (battery or phantom power) for increased versatility.
Switchable low-cut filter for better insulation of unwanted mechanical / background noise.
The AT8015 combines the narrow acceptance angle desirable for long-distance sound pickup, with excellent sound rejection from the sides and rear of mic.
Comes with a stand clamp, a foam windscreen, a 1.5V AA battery, two O-rings and a carrying case.
