Company to Present its Parabolic Microphone Equipment and Compressed Gas Lens Cleaner in Europe for the First Time
AMSTERDAM, SEPTEMBER 5, 2018 –
manufacturer of live sports audio and video production equipment, will present
its Klover MiK, designer and™ parabolic microphone equipment
and accessories, and Klear Shot™ compressed gas lens cleaner
to a worldwide audience at the 2018 IBC Show ( ). As part of the company’s worldwide expansion strategy, this
is the first time Klover will have a presence at the IBC show.
“Our live-action demo of the Klear Shot and side-by-side auditory
comparisons of our trio of Klover MiK options are sure to catch the attention
of both videographers and audio experts working in the broadcast and location
sound markets,” says Paul Terpstra, President, Klover Products. “The IBC show poses
a valuable opportunity for us to educate the European broadcast market on the benefits
of using a parabolic microphone for sports productions, as well as the unique
perks of implementing the Klear Shot for camera operators. Our goal is to reach potential new customers and
increase awareness and usage of parabolic microphones, and this show serves as
the ideal platform for us to do so.”
Klover MiK Series
At the heart of Klover Products is the Klover MiK, a series of
parabolic microphone dishes that act as auditory telescopes for capturing
on-field audio from a targeted area during sports events. Available in 26-, 16-
and nine-inch diameters, the Klover MiK can be outfitted with various
professional, high-quality microphone capsules, such as DPA and Sennheiser. The
parabolic dish provides a focused pickup pattern that is ideally suited for
live sports broadcasts, including rugby, handball and racing, among others. The
patented design of the Klover MiK employs the physics of a parabolic curve to
collect sound energy from a large area onto a small microphone, while
simultaneously reducing noise, such as from crowds and machinery.
While parabolic microphones are used frequently in the United States,
the company has found a growing need for the technology throughout Europe. The
Klover MiK is perfect for streaming and recording sports broadcasts, live
events and presentations or audience-focused panels, among other things. The
largest unit enables live sports audio specialists to capture audio from up to
600 feet (180 meters) away, while the small form-factor of the nine-inch model
allows it to be mounted directly to a camera to offer a wind resistant, focused
manufacturers, Klover Products uses carbon fiber tubes for handles and mic
yokes, which allows them to crush into small pieces in the event that an
athlete or athletic equipment comes barreling at the system. For added
protection for the players, all protruding studs have been removed from the
front of the dish. In addition to the trio of standard parabolic dishes,
the Klover MiK is also available in custom arrays and mounts can be designed
for specific applications. The customizable Klover Box™ enclosure is most commonly found integrated into the backstop at a
professional baseball stadium, but can also be utilized for similar events,
such as tennis, volleyball and handball.
The company's Klear Shot camera lens cleaning system allows camera
operators to quickly and easily remove rain drops and other debris from a
camera lens without touching the camera, using a patented compressed gas
system. This is an especially useful product for broadcasters in rainy regions.
It serves as a valuable alternative to the traditional means of wiping the lens
with a cloth, which may lead to a smudged lens that could cause difficulties
with seeing the live action. By extension, a cameraman may have to obstruct the
live video stream in an effort to better clean the camera. The Klear Shot is
great for both ENG cameras as well as those with much larger lens surfaces,
such as sports cameras.
