Based on models originally developed for use in the broadcast of the Sydney Olympics in 2000, the BP4029 (9.29" long) Stereo Shotgun is engineered for high-end broadcast and production use. This microphone features independent line-cardioid and figure-of-eight elements configured in an MS (Mid-Side) arrangement with switch-selectable internal matrixing. It allows sound recordists the choice of selecting a left-right stereo output (wide or narrow) via the microphone’s internal matrixing system or choosing discreet Mid-Side signals for later manipulation, a supreme flexibility.
A switchable low frequency roll-off filter helps minimize the pickup of unwanted low frequency noise. This phantom-powered model features a rugged lightweight design and sleek black color scheme, perfect for on-camera use.
