The incorporation of CAD’s unique Variable Pattern technology in the Astatic 901 makes it the only boundary mic that features a continuously variable polar pattern. (Infinitely adjustable between Omni and Figure-of-Eight). The upgraded Astatic 901VP reduces the list of products an audio system integrator needs to consider when boundary condenser microphones are specified. The integrator can precisely tailor the polar pattern for the best performance depending upon the application or environment. The polar pattern of the 901VP can be adjusted locally via an onboard potentiometer, remotely with CAD Audio’s Remote Variable Pattern Control Box (VPC-1) or electronically controlled using the 40-360 DSP cable and corresponding software with compatible digital signal platforms from Biamp® and Nexia®. The 901VP is primarily designed for speech and vocal pickup in governmental, institutional, House of Worship and corporate applications.
