  • Overview

    Equipped with the same Dante user switch capabilities as the ATND971 boundary mic, the ATND8677 desk stand allows Dante technology to be used with any phantom-powered condenser gooseneck microphone with a 3-pin XLRM-type output. The desk stand is designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, conferencing, distance learning and other demanding sound pickup applications.

    The sturdy metal base features a 3-pin XLRF-type input and Dante network output, enabling direct connection to the network via Ethernet cable. The desk stand’s touch-sensitive capacitive-type user switch with integral red/green LED status indicator permits advanced local and remote control. In Local mode, the switch mutes and unmutes the microphone: It can be set to toggle between live and muted audio (toggle on/off), to permit live audio only while the switch is pressed (press to talk), or to mute the audio while the switch is pressed (press to mute). In Remote mode, the switch can be used to trigger functions on compatible Dante-enabled devices, such as a video camera’s pan/tilt or a room’s lighting preset.

    An integral 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off, while a three-position input gain level selector (+30 dB, +40 dB, +50 dB) permits trim adjustment to accommodate louder and softer voices. The desk stand also provides 12V DC phantom power, which can be switched off and on.

    • Q:

      Is there a list of 3rd party devices or software that can be used for the Remote control of the Dante Microphones?

      The product profile suggests that you can use a 3rd party software/device to control or receive the mute button presses on the microphone. Are these done with Dante Events or are they going be to via some other protocol?
