  • Overview

    The ATCS-60 infrared discussion system offers all the advantages of infrared communication complete with wireless transceiver microphone units. Wireless infrared technology provides the user with greater flexibility while configuring the system and freedom of choice when placing microphones. From intimate meetings to large boardrooms and events, the ATCS-60 will adapt to meet your needs.

    Additional features include four selectable channels for multi-language conferences and an automated camera function facilitating audio visual integration.

    The option of software control is also available, with the user able to adjust camera position, facilitate audio recording and adjust microphone settings from “Conference Manager” software. Tabletop delegate microphone stations can be now augmented with handheld and lavalier microphones for greater flexibility.

    Infrared technology keeps your information in your conference room
    In the 21st century, the control of information is a top priority. With the ATCS-60 conference system your wireless signal won’t leave the room, let alone reach another building. While typical UHF wireless systems broadcast right through walls, the ATCS-60 keeps your signals safe & secure, with no information leakage.

    Praised for flexible system configuration, intuitive operation, and selectable channels for multi-language groups, Audio-Technica’s innovative ATCS-60 is a natural choice for everything from large-scale conferences to intimate gatherings. Wherever your communications lead you, experience more.

    General Features

    Flexible and easy modify
    Microphone and camera settings can be controlled by a PC running the “Conference Manager” software. The upgradable structure of the system makes it easier to adapt your conference setup.

    Unit selection function
    By utilizing ID switch methodology, the ATCS-60 guarantees prompt and responsive unit selection.

    All finish function
    The chairperson’s unit has control to override all other units with the “all finish” function.

    Battery life indication
    When battery life is low, both the power LED and microphone LED will flash rapidly as a warning.

    Listening options
    Built-in speaker and headphone jack with personal volume control.

    Voice Detection
    The user can select automatic or manual mode. In the automatic mode, the microphone is turned on when spoken into and turned off when there is no voice. The holding time can be altered to cater to users’ needs. In manual mode, the simple operation of pressing the TALK (speech) button enables the on/off switching.

    Simultaneous interpretation
    Up to 4 separate channels for multi language meetings, making it possible to have one mother tongue and three additional translations.
