Audio-Technica Shows New IEM and Microphone Products at prolight+sound

Leeds 02-28-2008 Audio-Technica is exhibiting major new products at this year’s prolight+sound exhibition at Frankfurt messe, including the company’s first wireless in-ear monitor systems and USB interface production microphone. These and other new products will be demonstrated at Audio-Technica’s morning press conference on 13 March at 10:30 in the Dialog Room in Hall 9.

Harvey Roberts, Senior UK Marketing Manager, commented: "We are especially excited about our presence at this year's prolight+sound, as we have a strong line up of new products that demonstrates the diversity of Audio-Technica’s product engineering for the professional audio market. And, of course, visitors will be offered our customary stress free hospitality, including our popular chill out zone with professional massage; all highlighting how relaxing it is to do business with Audio-Technica".

On the new product front, the M2 and M3 IEM systems are high performance systems, each appointed for distinct sectors of the professional audio market. The M2 provides a mid market system for solo performers, small groups, presenters, and small to medium sized concert systems, while the M3 is designed to fulfill large scale music, theatre and broadcast production requirements. Both systems comprise a lightweight body-pack stereo receiver, and a stereo transmitter equipped with two 1/4"/XLR combo input connectors for line-level inputs from mixing consoles. Mono or stereo operation is selectable, and Audio-Technica’s proprietary Personal Mix Control gives individual control of the balance between the wearer’s personal signal level and the monitor mix.

Both systems share the same optimum standards of audio fidelity, to ensure the clearest high resolution signals for performers. Both are equipped with Audio-Technica’s EP3 earphones featuring a proprietary Audio-Technica dynamic driver, to allow performers to hear themselves at comfortable SPL’s. The EP3 earphones come with three sizes of rubber flexible ear-tips and a universal-fit foam tip for a custom fit, increased isolation and long-wearing listening comfort without ear fatigue.

The AT2020 USB is an affordable, large diaphragm, studio cardioid condenser microphone featuring direct connectivity to Mac and Windows desktop production systems via USB. Based on the acclaimed AT2020, the AT2020 USB offers studio quality articulation and intelligibility in recording acoustic signal sources direct to computer based recording systems. Featuring a custom-engineered low-mass diaphragm, and with low self-noise and an extended frequency response, the AT2020 USB offers Audio-Technica’s renowned standards of performance, build and reliability for desktop audio applications.

Also new at prolight+sound is the PRO 92cW subminiature omnidirectional condenser headworn microphone system. Building on the popularity of the widely acclaimed AT892, the PRO 92cW is a low profile headworn mic, with an ultra miniature condenser capsule that provides a natural sound and minimum visibility. The affordably priced package has been developed primarily for educational, corporate AV/presentation, broadcast and theatre sound applications.
