Introduced in 1939 and still being manufactured today, the Shure Unidyne was the first unidirectional microphone using a single dynamic element. On January 31, 2014, the IEEE honored the Unidyne Microphone with its 137th Milestone Award. Michael Pettersen, Shure’s Director of Product Technical Support and Company Historian, will provide an overview of the Unidyne’s unique position in the history of 20th century broadcast, politics, and entertainment; the prototype mic elements that led to the final Unidyne element; plus the amazing story of Ben Bauer, the 24 year old immigrant from the Ukraine, who invented the Unidyne and earned his first of over 100 patents for audio technology. Rare photos and documents from the Shure Archive will be presented throughout this webinar.
