New York, NY (September 23, 2005)–Sanken will be introducing its new CO-100K super wide-range omni-directional microphone at the AES Convention in NYC, October 7-10, calling it “the world’s first” 100kHz microphone designed specifically for professional high-resolution recording. Applications include the recording of music with a wide dynamic range, especially acoustic instruments, as well as capturing a new world of detail in the recording of sound effects. Its compact size also makes it suitable for orchestral and other live recording environments.
The CO-100K was designed by Sanken in conjunction with NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories. Sanken reports that “because of the way in which analog to digital converters operate, the CO-100K takes advantage of the heightened frequency response of the new hi-resolution digital audio formats.” The absence of brick wall filters in the conversion process eliminates certain noticeable artifacts and anomalies commonly generated within the standard audio bandwidth.
The CO-100K features very fast transients with an extremely smooth response curve, resulting in great clarity and unprecedented transparency. With the ability to capture sounds in the ultra-high frequency range, the microphone also produces very rich results in the low and mid-range of the audible frequency range.
Check out the entire range of Sanken microphones designed for the studio, broadcast, and location recording for film and television at AES, in Booth #429.
