Theater & Live

The purpose of Voice Technologies products for theater staging is to meet the requirements of the big stage and furthermore to fulfill the expectations of the skilled sound editors. Also here the company can rely on years of expertise of their professionals. A concept, that fascinates. "The VT910DC quality is absolutely top class", said Jörg Grünsfelder, sound editor and sound designer of the "Nibelungenfestspiele" Worms and the "Zwingerfestspiele" Dresden about the use of Voice Technologies VT910DC Earhanger Microphone. Even in very intensive dialogues, there isn't any phasing. Background noise on the microphone, even when musicians are right next to the actor, is a thing of the past.


 

 

Custom production

The direct connection to our customers and end users is of central importance; New products or even new developments arise very often in close cooperation with our customers:

Water Adventure Microphone: In addition to the capsule protection they have an extremely reinforced cable against sweat, cuts and tearing. As the VT500WATER resp. VT506WATER the new Adventure models VT500WA and VT506WA are IPX-7 certified, they even endure temporary water submersion.

VT106HOF: Microphones for use in theatre performances and musicals need to meet specific demands. They have to be as unobtrusive as possible when integrated into costumes, the need to be durable and still have to transmit voices with the best possible quality. We have developed the VT106HOF in cooperation with Hof theatre, addressing all these requirements.

Companies that also need a special solution, simply contact Voice Technologies via E-Mail or telephone.

 

Security

Voice Technologies has further established itself beyond Pro Audio markets with innovative communication solutions for police departments and security services. In the security segment you also have to rely on highest speech quality even in the most adverse situations as well as maximal robustness of the individual components. In addition, long term wearing comfort and the use without restriction of movement is very special.

Swiss Precision for excellent audio quality

We listen!

You only learn from experience. This is common knowledge among most audio professionals. While theoretical approaches have their benefits in providing a deeper understanding of how sound behaves, how microphones work or need to be set up and what requirements the equipment has to fulfil, practical work experience is what truly builds know-how – and will sometimes result in entirely new findings. From practical applications spring new needs no one thought of in the lab. Why should a lavalier microphone be waterproof? Why would you change the capsule on a headset? And who would think of an integral helmet in acoustic research?

And yet exactly these special cases lead to particularly exciting technical advancements.

When audio professionals explain their requests and challenges to the Voice Technologies development team, the Swiss manufacturer strives to find the ideal solution. Sometimes, such cooperation for specific projects or individual pieces results in a new series of products for the benefit of a wider audience.

Successful products that resulted from customer requests:

vt500 water5When working with water in theatre performances, musicals or in broadcast, delicate technical devices like microphones need to be used most carefully. By applying a special treatment to the injection-moulded parts it is possible to waterproof the microphones to the point when they can even endure temporary submersion without taking damage. The popular VT500 lavalier microphone, for example, is also available as IPX-7 certified models VT500WATER or VT500WA. The VT500X provides even more protection against water and is IPX-8 certified. The waterproof designs proof advantageous even when no larger amounts of water are included in the production, as they also protect the electronics from sweat!

VTswitch 2In theatre applications, make-up and costumes pose an entirely different challenge. Microphones need to be integrated most unobtrusively into the stage outfits and will often be incorporated into the make-up process. In stressful and hectic situations it may happen that the make-up artists or the actors themselves accidentally get make-up into the microphone, clogging it and compromising its sound or even damaging it. In more elaborate costume designs, changing the headset is often not possible, leaving only the emergency microphones with often less-than-ideal sound. Voice Technologies has taken inspiration from this challenge and built the VT Switch that allows for changing the capsule with a simple screw mechanism. So instead of replacing the whole headset, only the tip needs to be changed to restore the microphone to its full functionality. A very useful side effect of this feature is the possibility to switch the microphones polar pattern by employing different types of capsules in order to adjust the microphone to the situation at hand.

We look forward to your suggestions and ideas!

If you, in your work as an audio professional, happen upon a problem that requires a specialised microphone solution, do not hesitate and get in touch with us. Perhaps we can come up with a solution together that does not only aid you in your situation but will also provide other audio professionals with the means to achieve even better results.
