The Nevaton VR is an ambisonic microphone (four capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement), designed for 360° spatial recordings in the highest quality.
Decades of engineering experience in manufacturing top-of-the-range microphones are condensed in this new model.This leads to excellent technical parameters such as incredibly low self-noise 4dBA, and the ability to handle very high sound-pressure levels 142dB
The microphone comes with a -10dB attenuator. To reduce the sensitivity of the microphone -10 dB, the polarization voltage of the cap is reduced, which allows a faster response of the membrane to very loud sounds.
Because of specially heated capsules, the Nevaton VR can be used in diverse climatic conditions (outdoor environments). The Nevaton VR has an integrated low cut switch 80Hz.
The microphone comes with a 10pin -> 4 XLR3 cable, with a cable length of 3 m (longer cables upon request). An additional cable (10pin->10pin) for the output from the windscreen is also available.
They have been developed by Professor Angelo Farina, a capacity on the field of Ambisonics and acoustic researcher at the University of Parma.
