A type of microphone which takes in sound coming from all directions.
Literally, from all directions. In audio, microphones are said to be omnidirectional if they can detect sound with equal sensitivity from all directions. Speakers are omnidirectional if they produce sound pressure level that is the same without regard to the position of the listener vis a vis the axis of the driver or port; this tends to be the case with subwoofers and low frequency drivers. Low frequencies, in general, tend to be omni-directional, unlike high frequencies, where directionality increases with frequency.
A microphone pickup pattern which is non-directional. An omnidirectional pickup pattern would look like a sphere with the microphone at the center.
Deriving from the word omni meaning all or everywhere, literally means 'from all directions'. For microphones this term means that the device is equally sensitive from any direction. Go to Index.
A microphone that picks up sound at equal levels in all directions. Coverage pattern is 360-degrees; no angle of rejection. Omnidirectional microphones are beter used for recording than for sound reinforcement because they pick up all sounds around them. see also: bidirectional; cardioid; hypercardioid; supercardioid; polar pattern
1) Microphones designed to pick up sound evenly from all directions. 2) Speakers designed to evenly disperse sound in all directions. On Axis - 1) To be position directly in front of microphone in line with the movement of it diaphragm. 2) To be located directly in front of a speaker in line with the center axis of its high frequency driver components.

Literally, from all directions. In audio, microphones are said to be omnidirectional if they can detect sound equally from all directions. Speakers are omnidirectional if they radiate sound in all directions equally; this tends to be the case with subwoofers and low frequency drivers. Low frequencies, in general, tend to be omnidirectional, versus high frequencies which tend to "beam" or be very directional.
Applied to microphones to refer to uniform pickup of sound from all directions.
It is a term given to sending and receiving signals in every directions, as in omnidirectional microphone.
Describes a device such as a microphone or antenna that operates equally well in all directions.
If an antenna is omniderectional, it is equally sensitive from any direction.
not directional; "omnidirectional antenna"
Having equal sensitivity to sounds or signals coming from any direction.
A mic that picks up sounds from all directions.
Sending or receiving sound waves in or from any direction. 360 degrees receiving capability
Capable of picking-up sound or radiating sound equally from all directions; as with an unidirectional microphone or subwoofer.
Capable of picking-up sound equally from all directions (for microphones) or radiating sound equally in all directions (for speakers).
Capable of transmitting or receiving signals in all directions, as an antenna.
A microphone sensitivity pattern in which sounds are picked up (more or less) equally from all directions.
A microphone that picks up sound from all directions.
In all directions simultaneously.
A microphone pickup pattern in which the microphone is equally sensitive to sounds from any direction.
An antenna providing a 360-degree transmission pattern. This type of antenna is used when coverage in all directions is required.
An antenna system that radiates equally in all directions.
microphone polar pattern that picks up sound from every direction
