Being able to capture audio from a distance means you can discreetly film a press conference, presentation or sporting event without interrupting the audience's experience. With our smallest parabolic microphone, journalists can easily conduct socially distanced interviews. It's like a telephoto lens for your microphone.

Fire / Search & Rescue

Parabolic microphones are used broadly in search and rescue efforts. In tests, calls for help have been heard from over a mile away.

Search & Rescue

Before making a purchase, a member of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue Team conducted a test of the KLOVER MiK 26.  

Santa Clara County Sheriff's Search and RescueSanta Clara County Sheriff's Search and Rescue“The parabolic microphone aided comprehension both meaningfully and statistically at all distances. Between 322 and 1190 m, comprehension with the microphone was 86% vs 52% for unaided listening.  Between 1529 and 2510 m, comprehension with the microphone was 57% vs only 12% for unaided listening . These results show the parabolic microphone to be superior in both detecting and comprehending hidden subjects who are calling.”

Parabolic microphones are also invaluable for locating victims in rubble or collapsed buildings.

A parabolic mic on top of a camera can capture audio clearly from six feet away for socially distanced interviews.

Social Distancing VideoInterviews can be conducted with no notice because there is no need to place a mic on the subject. Depending on the level of ambient noise, the audio will be very similar to a lapel mic on the subject from up to 6 or 8 feet.

An unexpected benefit of using the KM-09 is that the audio signal drops off much less when your subject turns their head to the side, as compared to a lapel mic.

KM 09 LED on News Camera 3The directionality of the KM-09 greatly reduces the amount of ambient, or crowd noise that is captured. This allows your subject to stand out from the background noise. At the same time, the pickup is large enough that more than one subject can be captured with equal levels. You don’t need to worry about the subject speaking while the interviewer has pulled back the mic.

The small parabolic also makes a great backup for wireless mics when mounted above the news desk.

Meeting / Class Streaming

A single parabolic microphone can pick up multiple speakers. Questions or comments can be captured from a large group of attendees using one or more parabolic mics.

Military / Security / Law Enforcement

Presenting classes online is becoming more common every year. Streaming video of the instructor is quite easy, and using a wireless mic provides great audio from the instructor. If desired, it is rather straight forward to add a second camera to capture video of the students.  The challenge, however, is to capture audio of student questions and interaction.

KM-09 in ClassroomKM-09 in ClassroomComments from more than 20 students were captured with four 9-inch parabolic microphone mounted in a 20-foot x 40-foot classroom.  The audio was more than adequate.   Another university placed a 9-inch parabolic (along with a Go Pro camera) in each classroom to stream the professor to students watching from home.

Houses of worship have used our 9-inch parabolic mics to stream the speaker or congregants to those watching online.

The small unit can also be mounted on a pan/tilt unit to follow the video camera, or mounted to a pan/tilt/zoom camera, to provide more focused audio to online meetings.
