Earthworks Audio is now shipping its new IMDL1 directional boundary microphones for permanent installation.
The phantom-powered IMDL1 comes in a black or stainless steel finish and features the LumiComm Touch Ring, which consists of a dual-colour LED light ring and a touch sensor output, allowing integrators to assign function and LED colour with a media control system.
Measuring just under 1.6 inches (40.5mm) in diameter and 0.7 inches (17.78mm) tall when installed, the IMDL1 provides a low-profile appearance. It also sports RF shielding to prevent interference from cell phones and other electronic devices.
The IMDL1 features a 20Hz to 30kHz frequency response optimised for speech, uses a cardioid polar pattern, and has a max acoustic input of 145dB SPL and sensitivity of 10mV/Pa.
