The Rycote 080210 ORTF Windshield Kit consists of an ORTF Modular Suspension (040249), a Stereo AE Windshield (OD 145 mm x Overall length 350 mm), and a Stereo AE Windjammer.
The ORTF stereo recording uses a stereo pair of microphones with the capsules spaced 6.7” (17cm) apart, and at an angle of 110° to each other. The ORTF windshield kit is designed for matched pairs of Schoeps CCM or Sennheiser MKH 8000 microphones, and consists of a Lyre suspension, a cable clamp, a 145mm Stereo Windshield, and a Windjammer that is large enough to comfortably accommodate the microphones.
A specially designed Rycote mounting adapter bar keeps the microphones at the correct spacing and angle for ORTF recording, and the Lyre suspension and shared windshield combine to provide a solution that is resistant to wind noise and unwanted vibrations such as cable-borne and handling noise.
If required, additional protection against cable-borne noise can be ensured by purchasing variants of the ORTF kit, which additionally include a Rycote Connbox.
