The Sanken CS-01 is an answer to professional users’ requests for many video
and film applications. A microphone designed for the broadcast and film /television industries. It is easy to be hidden from the camera’s eye because of
its short length. The CS-01 makes an excellent camera mounted mic* as well as a boom pole mic. The CS-01 has a very sharp directional characteristic and the
high quality sound Sanken microphones have become known for.
Sanken introduced the world's first Stereo
Shotgun Microphone in response to the persistent demands of production sound engineers for an easy-to-operate, flexible stereo shotgun for use in
stereo broadcasts and feature films with stereo and surround sound. Because of Sanken's innovations in Second Pressure Gradient technology and
the use of two cardioid diaphragms, the CSS-5 offers three distinct operation modes (mono, stereo and wide) for a wide array of applications in
location and studio recording. Mono mode provides high directivity over a wide frequencey spectrum, especially below 500Hz. Excellent for
noisy environments. Low proximity effect.
The CS-3e stands out among shotgun
microphones -- it delivers sharp directional sound with extended low frequency response and high directivity over a wide frequency spectrum,
especially below 500Hz. Because of its unique design, the CS-3e is an excellent choice for use in difficult applications, such as close-to-ceiling
positions or locations near a noisy camera. Even in such challenging situations, the excellent side and rear rejection of the CS-3e helps to capture only
the targeted dialogue without any ambient reverberation. Sanken's original design results in a low proximity effect which facilitates working
in a scene close-up and wide, while producing little change in sound character.
The CMS-10 is switchable between a very
sharp directional mono shotgun response and a specialized stereo shotgun mode that delivers a rich "Environmental Stereo Sound." The
CMS-10 is designed as a camera mounted microphone, however it can also be mounted on a boom pole for field recording. The source of Sanken's
Environmental Stereo Sound is a new generation M-S microphone design. Thanks to the exclusive internal circuit, it is simple to obtain a L and R output
with precise location imagery directly from the microphone, and also a very narrow-focused mono sound by using the ST/MONO switch. NOW also available in an M-S version
The CMS-10 is small (less than 220mm length
and 170g weight), an advantage in demanding field shooting, and the PPS diaphragm provides optimum durability in locations with high humidity and extreme
temperatures. The CMS-10 is an excellent choice for creative engineers working in HDTV and HD-Cam for movie production.
