Las Vegas, NV 06-08-2016 INFOCOMM — Audio-Technica (booth C9520), a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is introducing two new Dante™-enabled ceiling-mount microphone solutions: the ATND931 Dante six-inch gooseneck microphone and ATND933 Dante hanging microphone – both available in a number of configurations, including black and white color options and a selection of three polar patterns (cardioid, hypercardioid and MicroLine®). All configurations come standard with the new ATND8734 Microphone Ceiling Mount Power Module with Dante Network Output, offering a simple and cost-effective solution for integrating these new microphones with a Dante network without the need for a separate, standalone audio interface.

The ATND931 and ATND933 join the ATND8677 Microphone Desk Stand and ATND971 Network Boundary Microphone, the world’s first wired microphone products to transmit both audio and control data using the Dante network protocol. A simple Ethernet connection allows these microphones (powered by network PoE) to communicate across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices.

The ATND8734 Ceiling-Mount Power Module with Dante Network Output is designed to be permanently installed in a U.S. standard metal 2-gang electrical box, and comes equipped with an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter, selectable for a flat response or low-frequency roll-off, as well as a three-position input gain level selector (+30 dB, +40 dB, and +50 dB) and green/red LEDs. All features may be configured and controlled remotely via third-party software. Audio-Technica has been working closely with industry-leading DSP manufacturers including Biamp®, Symetrix™ and Bose to ensure Dante-compatible logic and remote control software integration for simple, flexible operation without the need for additional cabling.

An RJ45 connector provides plug-and-play access to the Dante audio network over CAT5e (or better) cable. The power module’s circular cover plate, which may be painted with commercially available spray paint.

The Audio-Technica ATND931 and ATND933 microphones are currently available. For more information, please visit
