Sanken introduces digital-ready lavalier mic

Sanken has announced the new COS-11D, the latest version in the popular COS-11 lavalier series. The new design incorporates design advances that deal with digital and digital/analog hybrid wireless transmission. The microphone will be distributed through Sanken’s U.S. distributor, plus24.

The new COS-11D has been approved by Lectrosonics after testing with its UM700 digital modulation transmitter. Company President Larry Fisher said, "We could produce no digital noise, such as a whine, or even an increase in the mic noise floor. I think the RF bypassing in the new version is a great improvement and should work perfectly with the Lectrosonics' digital transmitters."

With the advent of digital and digital hybrid wireless transmission systems, the role of the microphone becomes critical, and conventional microphones can produce artifacts. Sanken Microphones has designed the COS-11D specifically to reduce the instances where interference is an issue, while still retaining a natural vocal sound in lavalier applications.

The new COS-11D version is available in limited quantities. The unit will be offered in the pig tail version with standard sensitivity and a Red Mark model with reduced sensitivity.
