— Enhancements include up to 1001 selectable UHF frequencies in 25 kHz spacing, antenna power, new I Band, transmitter backlit screens and UniPak® body-pack transmitter locking battery compartment —

Stow, OH 01-14-2010 As part of their ongoing efforts to provide state-of-the-art, market-driven wireless solutions, Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 45 years, announces updates to its 3000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems. Now offering up to 1001 selectable UHF frequencies in 25 kHz spacing in three available frequency bands (including the new I Band), Audio-Technica's upgraded 3000 Series delivers outstanding professional performance. Nine new pre-coordinated frequency scan groups simplify selection of usable frequencies in a multi-channel wireless system. The versatile UniPak® body-pack transmitter features a backlit screen for easy reading in low-light situations and a locking battery door for added security. A three-position sliding cover on the transmitter's control panel prevents accidental shutoff or channel-switching.

The 3000 Series is available with either a dynamic or condenser handheld transmitter featuring robust metal construction and slim ergonomic design. The ATW-T341b handheld transmitter includes the stage-proven Artist Elite® AE4100 Cardioid Dynamic element, while the ATW-T371b handheld transmitter features the Artist Series ATM710 Cardioid Condenser element.
