Earthworks has introduced the CTF tabletop gooseneck microphones with integrated base designed for conferencing and speech applications. This integrated solution provides the flexibility of temporarily placing the microphone on a table for ad-hoc meeting spaces or permanently affixing it to a surface.
Spec’d at a flat frequency response and near-perfect cardioid polar pattern, the CTF microphones deliver speech intelligibility and reliable coverage for speakers. And, RF shielding is incorporated into the microphone’s electronic design to prevent interference from cell phones and other electronic devices.
The low profile base measures just 4.1 inches in diameter and comes with a 10 feet (3.04-meters) cable with XLR-3M attached, which is designed to exit from the side or bottom of the microphone base. Mounting holes are included on the microphone base to make it possible to permanently affix the microphone to a flat surface. The XLR can be removed, allowing the cable to run through a small hole in the table surface for permanent installation, providing a low profile and elegant miking solution. Available with 10 or 12 inch rigid center goosenecks and a black finish, the primary applications for the CTF10 and CTF12 include conference rooms, boardrooms, classrooms, lecterns and houses of worship.
The will ship in August and here are the specs.
