FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Azden introduces the Ultimate Video Microphones
SMX-30 Powered Stereo/Mono Shotgun Video Microphone
SMX-15 Powered Shotgun Video Microphone
Mount Arlington, NJ Friday, January 8, 2016
The new SMX-30 and SMX-15 are engineered with outstanding audio quality, appealing design, ergonomic form factor and all the functionality expected in a top-of-the-line, camera-mount microphone.
The selectable +20dB gain booster allows for strong, clean audio recordings, minimizing the need to turn up the noisy preamp in most cameras. If you’re in a noisy environment the selectable -10dB pad protects against overload distortion. Both microphones have wide band frequency response from 40Hz to 20kHz, for full and natural sound reproduction. A low-cut filter is provided to lessen outdoor wind and traffic noise and tame noisy indoor heating and cooling units.
Powered by 2 AA batteries both microphones can operate for up to 24 hours with no degradation of sound quality. The battery LED light turns OFF 1 hour before it’s time to change the batteries. Both microphones feature a unique “Auto” power setting that senses when the camera is ON or OFF and switches the microphone accordingly, eliminating accidental dead battery syndrome.
Integrated into the design of both microphones is a custom made, shock absorbing shoe mount to isolate the microphone from camera motor and handling noise. The standard shoe mount features a ¼” 20 thread for easy mounting to boom poles and other camera accessories. Available February 1, 2016.
