d:mension™ Surround Solutions


d:mension™ Surround Solutions are targeted at surround sound recording for film, live, broadcast and studio applications. 
Using full surround sound is one way to record a symphony. Most orchestras are a self-balancing phenomena – each instrumental part can be heard without the need for additional miking. As well, acoustic reflections and a sense of acoustic space are an important aspect of the sound of an orchestra - just as much as the instruments themselves.

An exciting mobile surround microphone whose compact size and ease of use come at no sacrifice to its stunning sound quality. The mic combines stunning sound quality with a plug-and-play solution. It brings engaging surround ambience to sport events, documentaries and other HDTV productions. The mic requires no external signal processing. This microphone is versatile. You can mount it in many ways: on a camera, microphone stand, suspended from the ceiling or via a hand grip. It is lightweight and portable. It can also withstand inclement weather conditions due to its robust nature.

The d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone is a completely self-contained plug-and-play solution for 5.1 audio capture. It uses five miniature pressure transducers. These transducers have low sensitivity to wind and mechanical noise, low distortion and low frequency response. They also have a large dynamic range.  

The three front microphones in this system are time aligned to eliminate comb filtering. This also ensures frequency consistency when down mixing to stereo or mono. In contrast, the rear microphones, with standard omnidirectional patterns, are optimally spaced from both each other and the front array to simulate the most natural time arrival differences. The end result of DPA’s innovative design approach is a surround atmosphere that is rich, smooth and fully enveloping, great in its coherence, channel separation and localization accuracy.

The S5 Surround Mount is a highly versatile and stylish microphone mount. The Surround Mount provides extreme flexibility due to its unique building block design. It allows for numerous configurations while providing visual elegance.

On stage, the mount is hardly visible and completely non-light reflective. The mount is equally suitable for fixed installations and mobile setups and can be neatly packed away into the supplied briefcase for easy transportation. Compact and extremely lightweight, the S5 Surround Mount is very strong and stable. Although the array is optimized for use with DPA microphones, it accommodates all microphone holders, and a broad variety of surround microphone arrays can be set up very neatly.

We offer three surround kits for use with the d:mension™ S5 Surround Mount: 

A complete d:mension™ surround kit with five carefully factory-matched d:dicate™ 4006A Omnidirectional Microphones. Even though the standard tolerances on the d:dicate™ 4006A Omnidirectional Microphones are extremely low, the surround match is even closer.

A complete d:mension™ surround kit combining three d:dicate™ 4006A Omnidirectional Microphones and two d:dicate™ 4011A Cardioid Microphones, carefully factory-matched to achieve full precision.
