Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word boundary microphone.


  1. Boundary microphone

    A boundary microphone is a small omnidirectional condenser mic capsule positioned near or flush with a boundary. The arrangement provides a directional half-space pickup pattern while delivering a relatively phase-coherent output signal. One example is the PZM for Pressure Zone Microphone. "PZM" is a trademark of Crown International. The boundary microphone can be used as a piano mic or on hockey boards for body check sound effects. It is also commonly used to record full room sound by being mounted on a wall. When used to record a soloist or small musical ensemble along with the room acoustics, a boundary microphone prevents phase interference between direct and reflected sound, resulting in a natural sound with a flatter frequency response than can be obtained with a stand-mounted microphone at the same distance.
